WTC holds auditions for ‘Radiant Vermin’

| October 14, 2020 1:00 AM

The Whitefish Theatre Co. is holding auditions for their second Black Curtain theatre production of the 2020-2021 season. Auditions for “Radiant Vermin” will be held on Monday, Oct. 19 at 7 p.m. at the O’Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish.

Arrive early to fill out an audition application, fill out a waiver form, and review the script. Enter at the north side of the building near WTC’s parking lot and conference room. Masks are required when you enter the building but you will be able to remove them during your audition. Please do not attend auditions if you are feeling sick.

Jill is expecting her first baby and she and her husband Ollie are desperate to find a home of their own for their new family. When a mysterious stranger offers the young couple an ideal house, it prompts the question: at a time of crisis in the housing market, how far would you be prepared to compromise your principals to secure a home for you and your family? Be prepared to be appalled at yourself for laughing aloud at the horrors revealed in “Radiant Vermin”, a wickedly funny, pitch-black satire about consumerism, gentrification, and inequality.

The cast is comprised of one man and two women, ages 20 and older. No experience or preparation is necessary to audition. Pages from the script will be provided. If you would like to familiarize yourself with the script, it is available at valley public libraries.

David Blair is the director of this production. As a Black Curtain show, the actors will remain on book during performances and there will be minimal costumes and set. There will be approximately nine rehearsals and one technical rehearsal on Nov.6. There are two performances over one weekend on Nov. 7 and 8.
