Auditions for “Rings” at The Grand Theatre

            The Grand Theatre, located at 1575 South State Street, Salt Lake City, will be holding auditions for “Rings”, a new play by local playwright Aden Ross on Saturday, March 22, 2014. The auditions will be from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and will be held in the Alumni Room, located across from The Grand Theatre Offices at South City Campus. Richard Scott will be directing the production and it will run June 6-21, 2014 at the Grand Theatre. Rehearsals will begin in April.

“Rings” is based on an actual court case in which two wealthy white women are accused of kidnapping and interrogating two Hispanic women. Judge Madeleine Crowder must not only negotiate the layers of lies in the courtroom but also relive a painful tragedy from her past. While determining appropriate punishment, she contemplates the complexities of confession and attempts to balance justice and mercy. But finally she must ask, how can anyone find forgiveness for the crimes beneath the crimes—the pervasiveness of racism, the inequities of class, and the betrayal of loved ones—connecting us all in interlocking rings?

Those wishing to audition will need to call the Grand Theatre box office at (801) 957-3322 to schedule an audition time. Each actor will have a 3-5 minute time slot and will be asked to do a cold read of one of the sides (sides will be online as of March 17th.) Actors of all ethnic backgrounds are encouraged to audition. The Director is seeking 4 women ages 20-65 (2  parts must be bi-lingual English & Spanish);and 2 men ages 26-65 for these roles. For a list of roles and more information, including sides, please visit The Grand website at www.the-grand.org.
