Audition for Oakton’s “The Language Archive” Sept. 12-13
(Aug. 24, 2017) Actors are needed to bring a poetic, whimsical, quirky and tender story about a man who spends his life studying dying languages but has trouble expressing himself to those around him to the stage. Open call auditions for Oakton Community College’s production of “The Language Archive” are scheduled for 6-9 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept 12-13, at the college’s Studio One Theater, 1600 E. Golf Road, Des Plaines.
The director is seeking three women, aged 20s to 70s, and two men, aged 30s to 70s. Actors are asked to prepare a contemporary monologue less than two minutes in length and should be prepared to read from the script. Monologues need not be memorized.
Written by award-wining playwright Julia Cho and directed by Paul Cook, “The Language Archive” focuses on how words form human connections when the lives of five people are imaginatively weaved together as they discover that no matter how many words they can speak, it's the heart’s language that matters most.
Performances are scheduled Oct. 26-29 and Nov. 2-5. For more information, call 847.635.1897.
