Show Summary: One of Christie’s darkest tales and a masterpiece of dramatic construction, its growing sense of dread and unfaltering tension will keep you guessing to the very end. Ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they're unwilling to reveal and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. As the weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland, the bloodbath begins and one by one they are brutally murdered in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme.

Actors are encouraged to try out for roles which they feel they can portray, regardless of age. The director will ultimately decide on the best age range and mix for characters based on the needs of the play.

Preparation: There is nothing to prepare. Auditions will be by cold readings from the script. The readings will be provided at auditions. Our aim is to make the audition process as easy and stress free as possible.

Head shots and performance resume`s are not required but they are appreciated. Informal photos will be made to aid in identifying auditioners.

The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity Category: Theatre

Theater Emory announces professional auditions for The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity

The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity (by Kristoffer Diaz, directed by Lydia Fort)
is a drop-kicking, body-slamming theatrical happening set in the larger-than-life world of pro-wrestling. Macedonio “Mace” Guerra plays the fall-guy for mega-successful “THE” Wrestling League, losing again and again to the impossibly charismatic champ Chad Deity. When Mace discovers a young Indian-American Brooklyn kid whose charisma rivals that of Chad’s, Mace decides to get him a job in the company. Only problem is, the boss has a very specific plan for the duo: put them onscreen as terrorists.

We Are Proud to Present... Auditions re-scheduled Category: Theatre

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: professional auditions for We Are Proud to Present… will not take place on May 19-20. These auditions will be re-scheduled for Aug. 4-5. The casting notice will be posted again here in mid-July. (See also the Theater Emory website: There is no change to the May 19-20 auditions for our other production, The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity.

We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, From the German Südwestafrika, Between the Years 1884–1915 by Jackie Sibblies Drury follows a group of actors struggling to adequately tell the story of the Herero people. Though the play covers a serious topic, it does so through the lens of humor and explores the revelations the characters have about history, race, and theatre during their rehearsals. Ultimately the play takes a dark turn as the American wounds and the historical tragedy overlap within this ensemble’s own process. Music, comedy, violence, and politics all blend in this metatheatrical masterpiece. (Directed by Eric J. Little)
