PREPARATION

For auditions, please prepare a short story excerpt or poem, approximately 2-3 minutes in length. (This piece does not need to be memorized) We are looking to see how you sound and act while telling a story. There will also be cold readings from Edgar Allan Poe selections.

SHOW DESCRIPTION

You know what screams May Flowers, sunshine and warmer weather? Death, dismemberment, suicide, and plague. That is why The Company will present “An Evening with Mr. Poe”. This one-night only event will feature 12 performers retelling some of the classic tales and poetry of Edgar Allan Poe. “The Raven”, “Tell-Tale Heart” and “The Cask of the Amontillado” are sure to be performed, but don’t be surprised by a few of his less popular works making an appearance. If you are a fan of “What Goes Bump In the Night”, then this is a show for you.

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS

Actors will be doing dramatic readings of poems and short stories, so each “character” is open to interpretation, and open to all ages (21+), genders, and types.

Selections will include:
Shadow, A Parable
The Sphinx
Cask of the Amontillado
Masque of the Red Death
Tell-Tale Heart
