Open auditions will be held to cast the World premiere of Uncles Regularly Scheduled Garage Party is Cancelled Tonight by Lee Cataluna. The show will be co-directed by Harry Wong III and Wil Kahele and runs June 1 through July 2, 2017.
Uncle's regularly scheduled garage party is cancelled for the first time in -- ever! The usual attendees show up and process their shock over the cancellation-- while they eat, drink, talk story and play music. Uncle isn't saying why the party is cancelled, but everyone has a theory: Illness? Financial troubles? Marital discord? Gambling problem? Eviction? Erosion of societal values and loss of culture? Or is Aunty just sick and tired of all their shenanigans?
The old friends spend the evening telling stories, laughing and sharing food. But its not a party, because Uncle's regularly scheduled garage party is CANCELLED!
There will be a free audition workshop held from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm, Thursday March 16, also at Kumu Kahua Theatre. This workshop is an opportunity for all interested to work with the script and directors, and learn the best way to prepare for this audition.
The workshop is free, but space is limited. Please call 536-4222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.
