Audition Details

Auditions consist of cold readings from the script. A perusal script is  
available at the Ask Here Desk at Branigan Library.

In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international
celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage—until the girls who
painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Inspired by a
true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial
painter, as she fights for her day in court. Her chief adversary is her
former employer, Arthur Roeder, an idealistic man who cannot bring
himself to believe that the same element that shrinks tumors could have
anything to do with the terrifying rash of illnesses among his employees.
As the case goes on, however, Grace finds herself battling not just with
the U.S. Radium Corporation, but with her own family and friends, who
fear that her campaign for justice will backfire.
