Stuff Happens auditions Sunday and Tuesday

Iowa City - Dreamwell Theatre announces auditions for David Hare’s Stuff Happens, a political (recent) history play exploring the often notorious events and decisions that led to the war in Iraq. Ryan Foizey directs. Performances will be April 8, 9, 15, 16 in Iowa City. Rehearsals will generally be during the weeknights.

Auditions will be held at the Iowa City Public Library:

Sunday, January 30, 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m
Tuesday, February 1, 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

No preparation is necessary. Sides will be provided. Scripts are on reserve at the ICPL.

Roles include:

Laura Bush, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Donald Rumsfeld, and many more. George W. Bush will be played by Justin Braden. Eastern Iowa broadcast personality Scott Sandborn is tentatively slated to play Donald Rumsfeld, but auditionees are still welcome to read for the role.

Actors need not resemble the real political figures represented in this show. Our job is to tell a story through portrayal, not imitation. Most actors will be cast in double or multiple roles. Both men and women are encouraged to audition for major roles.

Note: This script calls for several ethnicities/races/nationalities. Thus, people of all ethnicities are encouraged to audition, as there are parts for you. Having said that, if a part is labeled as a specific race or ethnicity and you do not fit it, that does not mean you are not eligible for the part. This is a completely open minded show free of typecasting.

Contact with questions or to arrange an alternate audition time.
