Hello!
I am writing to see if you would be interested in auditioning for the role of “Franco” in Iowa City Community Theatre’s production of “Superior Donuts.”  Please see below for a description of the show.  The actor who played Franco on Broadway was nominated for a Tony!  This is a plumb lead role.  The character is the engine of the show and plays a range of affect including having the gift of delivering many of the show’s funny lines. The show is a drama with funny moments. Official auditions finished this week, so if you are interested in auditioning, please let me know and I can set up a separate time.  Email me at barry-schreier@uiowa.edu and I would gladly set up a separate time for you.  Thanks for any initial interest you may have!

DONUTS-Iowa City Community Theatre
Arthur Przybyszewski, second generation Chicago Polish, owns a rundown Uptown Chicago donut shop that has been in his family for 60 years.  Franco Wicks, a young black man and Arthur’s only employee, wants to modernize the shop full circle.  This provocative show, set in the skin of a drama with high comedic moments, explores the human experience of embracing the past, exposing our weakest moments, keeping a damn-fine sense of humor about it all, and finding redemption in the least expected relationships. Superior Donuts is a smart, strongly written Tony-nominated play by Tracy Letts, author of “August: Osage County.”  And there’s donuts!
Rehearsals:  November 26-January 18 (Break December 21-January 2)
Shows: January 19-January 28th

Call for Submissions

riverSedge is currently open for submissions in prose, poetry, dramatic scripts, graphic literature, art, interviews, and reviews.

riverSedge is published annually by the Creative Writing Program at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. While our name reflects the specific geographical and cultural nuances of the Rio Grande Valley, we believe riverSedge represents a neologism that connotes so much more, and well beyond the confines of our region—such as divisions, transgressions, (re)definitions, and resistances—throughout the margins of the Americas and all other borderland spaces, identities, and modes of creative expression.
 
Through our commitment to excellence and innovation in language and form, riverSedge exists to provide an outlet for writers and artists in the genres of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, dramatic writing, graphic literature, visual art, interviews, and critical reviews. Past artists and authors include Barry Deutsch, Eleanor L. Bennett, Larry McMurtry, Rolando Hinojosa-Smith, Angela de Hoyos, Alurista, Naomi Shihab Nye, and Sandra Cisneros.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Friday, November 3, 2017 at 5:00 PM
 
Every year the South Asian Student Alliance host a "Mock Shaadi" where we put on a show that highlights the different aspects of a traditional South Asian wedding. We are currently on the look out for two students that are interested in playing the parts of the "bride" and the "groom."
 
Our "Mock Shaadi" will be heavily advertised and promoted through social media, and would be a great opportunity for both theater and non-theater arts students alike to gain exposure and experience. The students essaying the roles would be expected to:
 
-Attend the "Mock Shaadi" event on March 3rd in the IMU Main Lounge, and act out the different traditions portrayed in this year's event. They will be the main attraction at the event, but will be accompanied by other performances as well.  
-Shoot promotional videos before the event. This will require at least three separate days of shooting as we hope to have a love story and proposal video to play at the main event.
-Take part in photoshoots for promotional material that will be available on social media. 
 
All expenses will be covered by our organization, and we will work with you to make sure that the promotional videos and shoots fit in with your schedule. You do not need to have any prior experience.  
 
Please fill out this application if you are interested in essaying the role of the "bride" or "groom" for the 2018 Mock Shaadi!
