April 11, 2017
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Auditions for The Last Days of Judas Iscariot Theatre Found Hosts Open Call Auditions for Hawaii Premiere
Theatre Found announces open call auditions for Stephen Adley Guirgis’ play The Last Days of Judas Iscariot. Auditions will be held on Sunday, May 14 from 2pm till 5pm inside Kennedy Theatre’s “Studio S” on the campus of the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Callbacks will be held immediately following the open call auditions from 7pm to 10pm. Amateur and professional actors are invited to audition for this unique theatrical piece.
Named one of Time magazine’s “10 Best Plays” when it opened in 2005, the play is a signature piece of Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, Stephen Adley Guirgis. Set in a time-bending, seriocomic world between heaven and hell, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is a meditation on the conflict between divine mercy and human free will that takes a close look at the eternal damnation of Judas Iscariot – the Bible's most notorious sinner.
Two years ago, Theatre Found produced Freud’s Last Session, garnering Po’okela Awards for Outstanding Overall Production of a Play, Outstanding Director of a Play (Mark Branner) and Outstanding Guest Artist (Donovan Oakleaf).
The Last Days of Judas Iscariot will be presented from August 18, 2017 through September 3, 2017 as a fully realized professional production. The performances will run for three weekends at a downtown Honolulu location and will feature a team of professional actors, designers and technicians. Theatre Found exists to incarnate stories that ask the big questions, telling these stories with great skill and artistry.
Those interested in auditioning for The Last Days of Judas Iscariot should prepare a short selection from the piece. PDF copies of the script and other audition information can be obtained by emailing director Mark Branner at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 808-956-2931.
