Bethany College Theatre will hold auditions on Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 3 to 4, from 7 to 10 p.m. in Burnett Center for the fall production of Sarah Ruhl’s “Eurydice,” a beautiful and haunting reimagining of the classic myth of Orpheus.
Anton Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard is the story of a family struggling to save their family’s estate. Director Cody Whetstone knew that in order to portray this eccentric family and the servants and friends that surround them, he would have to cast an eclectic group of people.
“We knew this would be a perfect play to work on collaboratively with Bethany College and Broadway RFD,” Whetstone said. “To find such a diverse group of people, we needed both group’s resources.”
“The play was written and set in Russia in the early 1900’s,” said Whetstone. “To show how universal Chekhov’s ideas and words are, we’re setting it in modern times. I hope it will help Chekhov’s play resonate with today’s audiences.”
