JOSHUA TREE, CA – Continuing its almost fifty-year tradition of staging the Desert’s best in live theatre, the Hi-Desert Cultural Center announces a superb opportunity for area actors and actresses this Sunday, January 6th, 2013.  The popular local director, Wendy Cohen, will hold a casting call and auditions for the Center’s upcoming theatrical production, The Dining Room.  This acclaimed “comedy of manners” will play at the Center’s state-of-the-art Blak Box Theater running three weekends from February 15 through March 2, 2013.  Cohen, whose acting and directing has garnered her many awards and honors from the Desert Theatre League, encourages all actors and actresses over sixteen years of age to audition.
The play is set in a single dining room where 18 scenes from different households overlap and intertwine—with each story focused on a different family during different time periods who have in their possession the same dining room furniture set. The action is a mosaic of interrelated scenes—some funny, some touching, and some rueful.  The actors may play a wide range of roles, personalities, and ages as they portray a variety of characters, from younger boys to stern grandfathers, and from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids. Dovetailing swiftly and smoothly, the varied scenes mesh into a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor, and abundant humanity. 
Those who would like to audition should send an email to info@hidesertculturalcenter.com to receive a scheduled audition time between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Sunday, January 6, 2013.  Those who wish to audition are encouraged to bring a photo of themselves and a sheet detailing their acting experience.  Scripts will be available for cold readings, but all those auditioning are also welcome to bring a prepared short monologue.
For more information on the audition process, please contact the Cultural Center by sending an email to info@hidesertculturalcenter.com.
