Iowa City - Dreamwell's auditions for the final show of their War and Consequences season, Soldier's Daughter, will be May 22 and 23. Dreamwell founder Matt Falduto will direct. Performances will take place July 15-23 at Country Camp, a farm located a little ways outside of Iowa City.
AUDITION WHEN and WHERE:
Sunday, May 22, 1 p.m. Iowa City Public Library, Meeting Room A
Monday, May 23, 6:30 p.m. Iowa City Public Library, Meeting Room D
ABOUT THE SHOW:
13-year old Tigerlily is waiting for her Dad to return from the latest of many deployments to Afghanistan. She's eagerly awaiting his homecoming, which will hopefully be for good this time. Asleep on the porch of her farmhouse, she is awakened by her dream come true - her father is there in front of her. He wants to take her on a 'story walk' of their farm, an old tradition that they'd done many times in the past. At each location on their farm, her dad tells her a different story. But something is different this time and as the walk progresses, Tigerlily realizes her future may never be the same.
STUFF TO NOTE:
This show was written collaboratively by Falduto and other members of the Black Doggers playwrighting group of Eastern Iowa, including Barbara Lau, Mike Moran, Brian Tanner, James Trainor and Amy White. It will be performed outdoors, promenade style, as the audience will move to different locations on the farm as the show progresses. There are roles for actors who can play a ten year old girl, a thirteen year old girl, and older teens as well as roles for actors who can play characters in their 60 or 70s. If you can't make the audition times, contact the director at email@example.com and he will see if they can work out another time.
