The Haywood Arts Regional Theatre will hold auditions for its spring production of the Thomas Wolfe classic “Look Homeward Angel” at 6:30 p.m. on March 4-5.
The production is being directed by Steve Lloyd and will have a two-week run, starting on April 27.
“Look Homeward Angel” was adapted for the stage by Ketti Frings and won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama when it opened on Broadway. The story, set in the fictional Altamont, is actually a loose biography of Wolfe’s youth in Asheville. The names may be different but the characters and places are recognizable. The play has 19 roles for men and women of various ages, and the lead is a young teenager.
Community theater actors will be given scenes to read from the script. Anyone auditioning as a professional actor is expected to have a headshot, resume and prepared monologue. Anyone interested in working backstage on the production is also encouraged to come by during auditions to sign up.
Auditions will be held at the Performing Arts Center on Pigeon Street in Waynesville.
