PROVO, Utah – The Covey Center for the Arts will hold auditions for the play, “The Three Musketeers” by Ken Ludwig on Wednesday, April 6 from 5 – 7p.m. and Thursday, April 7, from 7 – 10p.m. in the Brinton Black Box Theatre of the Covey Center. A callback audition will be held Saturday, April 9 from 9a.m. to 1p.m.
The director, Barta Heiner, a BYU acting professor and former head of the BYU theater department, is seeking four women and eight men to play characters ranging from 20 years old to 60 years old.
“The Three Musketeers” is a comedy and, as such, the audition will require actors to prepare two monologues — one comedic and one dramatic — totaling no more than three minutes combined. Cold reads will also be available, but monologues are preferred. Stage combat experience is also desired.
Rehearsals will start July 6 and will be held Tuesday through Friday, 7 – 10p.m. and Saturdays 9a.m. - 1p.m. until the show opens Thursday, Sept. 8. The show will then run through Saturday, followed by Monday through Saturday of the ensuing week, closing Sept. 17.
Actors will be compensated for their work.
