Foothill Auditions: "The Children's Hour"

Foothill College Drama Department will conduct open auditions for its fall production, "The Children's Hour" by Lillian Hellman, directed by Tom Gough.

About the Play:
From one of America's most significant playwrights of the 20th Century, The Children's Hour delicately and effectively confronts several lurking social taboos by telling the story of two young adult women who run a secluded New England private school for girls in the 1930's. A malicious youngster starts an entirely unfounded scandal about them which precipitates tragedy for the women. Later it is discovered that the gossip was pure invention, but by that time irreparable damage has been done. 


Parts:  1M (Age 30-40), 1M (Age 15-20), 2F (Ages 25-35), 3F (Ages 40-65), 9F (Ages 12-21).  All ethnicities encouraged. 

Prepare:  The auditions will consist of cold readings from the script assigned during the audition.  A 90-sec modern dramatic monologue is preferred, but certainly optional.  If possible please bring a resume and headshot or photo.

Times:  Monday, September 20th and Tuesday, September 21st at 7pm please choose only one day to attend preliminary auditions--no appointment necessary. Call-back auditions will be Thursday, September 23rd at 7pm.

Where:    Foothill College Playhouse (Rm #1301), 12345 El Monte Road (I-280 & El Monte Road), Los Altos Hills.
