BPA holds auditons for ‘Revolutionists’

Bainbridge Performing Arts will host auditions for their upcoming production of “The Revolutionists,” directed by Kate Carruthers, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10 and 6:30 to 9 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12.

In the show, four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in an irreverent girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror.

Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Jean-Paul Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris.

This dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how one might actually go about changing the world.

It’s a true story.

Or total fiction.

Or a play about a play.

Or a raucous resurrection … that ends in a song and a scaffold.

Run dates are March 8-10, March 15-17, March 22-24, with a pay-what-you-can preview on March 7. Rehearsals extend Jan. 14 through March 6, from 6:40 to 9:40 p.m., Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, plus Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Those auditioning are requested to prepare a 1- to 1-1/2-minute dramatic or comedic monologue. All roles are open to audition, visit www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org/products/auditions-for-the-revolutionists to learn more.

Auditions are by appointment only, and those interested should email dhadlock@bainbridgeperformingarts.org to schedule a time.
