Call for Actors
 
Thee Breakfast Club by Michael Shaeffer 
 
Auditions are open to the public—no previous experience necessary.
 
This will be a polished reading of a new script, a Shakespearean reimagining of John Hughes’ 1985 movie The Breakfast Club, written and directed by Michael Shaeffer, the mind behind Caddy Shakes.
 
Audition times: Thur, Oct 24, 6-8p & Sun, Oct 27, 6-8p
 
Where: FST Office. 516 2nd Ave, #313; the blue Lathrop Building.
 
The first read through and movie viewing is tentatively scheduled from noon to 3:30 on Saturday, November 2nd. Rehearsals are tentatively scheduled from 7:30-9 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays in November. One evening performance on Saturday, November 30 at the Palace Theater.
 
Actors wishing to land a role or roles need only attend one of the two audition times. Actors wanting to attend both nights may certainly do so. Sides available from the audition event on our Facebook page. Or email info@fairbanksshakespeare.org. Actors may read for as many roles as they desire. You may partner up with another actor of your choice or simply ask to have someone read opposite you for any side.
