Audition Notices

ACT 1 is thrilled to announce auditions for its fourth production of the 2017/2018 season:

The Little Foxes

Auditions will be Saturday, March 10th (12-3pm) and Sunday, March 11th (6-9pm) at Darkhorse Theater (4610 Charlotte Ave., Nashville, TN 37209).

Synopsis: Set in an Alabama town, some 35 years after the end of the Civil War, Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes, one of the modern masterpieces of the American theater, weaves a tale of avarice and greed among a decaying Southern family, battling society and one another for their continued place of prominence and authority amid changing times and the encroachment of forces from outside their control. At the center of the story is Regina Giddens, an imperious and aging Southern belle eager to claim her birthright at a time when only the sons of the well-to-do were able to inherit family fortunes. As she fights with her nefarious brothers, Ben and Oscar (and Oscar’s ne’er-do-well son, Leo), she lashes out at her complacent and ineffectual husband Horace Giddens, demanding he accede to her demands so that she might rightfully assume command of a family dynasty long denied her, and at her powerless and pitiable sister-in-law Birdie (Oscar’s abused wife). While all this plays out against a backdrop of supposed Southern gentility, Regina becomes more ruthless and more grasping, leading to the loss of her daughter’s love and the ultimate realization that she is completely alone in the world. Be careful what you wish for, Regina.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Headshots and résumés are helpful, but not required.

Roles are available for 4 women, 6 men. Colorblind and multi-ethnic casting will be in effect for this production.

The Little Foxes is directed by Jef Ellis. Performances will be May 4-19, 2018 at the Darkhorse Theater.
