Auditions: AEA Open Call at Centenary Stage Company

Enemy

Centenary Stage Company will hold AEA open call auditions for the upcoming 2019 spring production of An Enemy of the People written by Henrik Ibsen and adapted by John Wyatt. The production will star Randall Duk Kim and is directed by Anne Occhiogrosso. Auditions will be held by appointment on Thursday, January 10 from 10:30 am – 7:30pm. To schedule an appointment interested performers must call the Centenary Stage Company box office at (908) 979 – 0900. Walk-ins will be seen as time permits.

The auditions will be held in the Lackland Performing Arts Center at 715 Grand Ave. Hackettstown, NJ on the campus of Centenary University. Interested performers may prepare a monologue appropriate to the material or read from sides. Sides will be provided. Rehearsals begin January 29 and run through February 15 with performances beginning February 15 through March 3. Performance days are Wednesdays and Sundays at 2PM, Thursdays at 7:30PM and Fridays and Saturdays at 8PM. Centenary Stage Company is a not-for-profit professional theatre company in residency at Centenary University and operates under an SPT 4 contract.

An Enemy of the People follows Tom Stockmann, a geologist who discovers dangerous water pollution in the Springs, a highly anticipated resort that recently opened in his Norwegian town. In Tom's mind, the path to a solution is clear: inform the public and close the resort to prevent a crisis. With ripped-from-the-headlines relevance, this high-intensity drama is a powerful investigation of ambition, integrity and the price we pay for the truth. This full scale production is the culmination of the Gates Ferry Series: "What is truth?"
