We are now taking Online reservations for "Radium Girls", our next  
NSTC production directed by Autumn Gieb, and running January 28 - February  

We will have Additional Auditions for "Mother Courage and her Children,"  
written by Bertolt Brecht and directed by Joshua Taulbee.

Auditions will be held at the Black Box Theatre, 430 N. Main Street in Las  
Cruces on Friday, January 14 and Saturday, January 15th at 7:00 pm.

Performances will be held March 18th thru April 3rd, with a possible  
extension to April 10th.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Also, please
prepare a 30 second to minute long song as several characters do sing in
the show. Everyone must wear masks and be vaccinated.

Mother Courage is a clever canteen woman traveling with her three
children (Eilif, Swiss Cheese, and Kattrin) following the Swedish army
during the Thirty Years’ War. She uses her wit and determination to
survive and, hopefully, make a profit. Needed are eight performers to
play over twenty different parts.

Characters Include:
Mother Courage - Smart, resourceful, and fierce.
Kattrin - Mother Courage’s traumatized daughter who does not speak.
Eilif - The “brave” son.
Swiss Cheese - The “honest” son.
Chaplain - A religious man who travels with Mother Courage.
Yvette - A prostitute.
Other roles include military personnel and peasants.

A copy of the script is available at the Ask Here desk at Branigan Library.
