The SCS Committee on Ancient and Modern Performance (CAMP) seeks participants for its performance at the SCS/AIA Annual Meeting in New Orleans (January 8-11, 2015). This year’s play is Wealth, an adaptation of Aristophanes’ Plutus, written by Karen Rosenbecker, and directed by Artemis Preeshl. With one foot in ancient Athens and the other in modern New Orleans, Wealth takes on the timeless topic of income inequality and shows us what happens when the poor are given a chance to remake their world. Here is a brief overview of the roles.
We will need actors, stage crew, and helpers for this limited-rehearsal, staged reading. In the spirit of laissez le bon temps rouler, we welcome veterans and newcomers alike, and we embrace cross-gender casting. Rehearsals will begin on Tuesday afternoon (01/06), with subsequent rehearsals on Wednesday afternoon and evening (01/07), on Thursday afternoon (01/08), and one Friday rehearsal (01/09), as schedules permit; the performance will take place on Friday evening (01/09; 7 pm curtain). Send an e-mail describing your interests and talents to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, by September 1, 2014.
Those interested in seeing a copy of the full script should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
