Un-Common Theatre Company announces January Auditions


The Un-Common Theatre Company is thrilled to announce January auditions for their Spring production of “And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank” by award-winning playwright James Still.  Un-Common is looking for young performers who are interested in enhancing their acting skills and want to be part of a ground breaking and powerful production.  This production will be performed at the Orpheum Theatre in Foxboro, MA on April 13-15, 2012.

“And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank” is a unique theatrical experience: a multimedia play that combines videotaped interviews with Holocaust survivors Ed Silverberg and Eva Schloss and live actors recreating scenes from their lives during World War II.  Ed was Anne Frank’s first boyfriend, and she wrote about him in the beginning of her now-famous diary.  Eva Schloss was the same age as Anne Frank and lived in the same apartment building in Amsterdam.  Her family went into hiding the same day as the Frank family.  And like the Frank family, they were betrayed.  On Eva’s 15th birthday, her family was arrested by the Nazis and sent to concentration camps.  Part oral history, part dramatic action, part direct address, part remembrance, “And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank” breaks new ground and has been acclaimed by audiences and critics in world-wide productions.

Veteran Director Christa Crewdson will include the teaching of advanced acting techniques in the rehearsal process in order to help the cast to learn the tools needed to bring this emotionally challenging production to the stage.  The ensemble will embark on their journey using the art of listening, physical commitment, improvisation and character study in order to bring this powerful piece of theatre to life.  Un-Common is thrilled to be able to offer this amazing performance opportunity for young actors to be part of an important and memorable theatrical experience.

Auditions for actors in grades 7-12 will be held Sunday January 8th, 2012 from 1pm BY APPOINTMENT ONLY at The South Foxboro Community Club in Foxboro, MA.  For more information please check the website at www.uncommontheatre.org.
