Inver Hills Theatre announces auditions for THE SEAGULL

Inver Hills Theatre

Auditions For:

 The Seagullby Anton Chekhov

A New Version Translated by Tom Stoppard

Directed by George M. Roesler

The Seagull , is the play that established Anton Chekhov as an important and revolutionary dramatist. Here, amid the weariness of life in the country, the famous actress Arkadina presides over a household riven with desperate love, with dreams of success and dread of failure. It is her son, Konstantin, who one day shoots a seagull; it is the novelist Trigorin who will one day write the story of the seagull so casually killed; but it is Nina, the seagull herself, whose life to come will rewrite the story.

This new translation of The Seagull—made by Tom Stoppard for the Peter Hall Company at the Old Vic in 1997—was produced by The Public Theater/New York Shakespeare Festival in New York City in 2001.

“This is Chekov played with lightness, irony, and speed.”—The Guardian

The Inver Hills Theatre announces Auditions for The Seagull directed by George M. Roesler. Auditions will be held on Wednesday, September 10 and Thursday, September 11, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM in the Fine Arts Theatre. No experience is necessary. All Inver Hills’ students, staff, faculty and administrators are welcome to audition. Performances: November 7, 8, 14, 15 at 7:30 pm in the Fine Arts Theatre. For more information contact George Roesler at 651-450-3588 or groesle@inverhills.edu.
