Auditioning actors will cold-read selections for the script. Arrive 15 minutes early to fill out audition forms. The auditions are open, so there is no need to request an audition slot ahead of time.
"The Diviners," a haunting and beautifully written play, is set in the fictional town of Zion, Indiana, during the 1930s and tells the tale of a challenged, damaged boy named Buddy whose sweetness touches every person he meets on his quest to find water on a local farm.
"The Diviners" will run for three weekends, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, beginning March 29, and closing April 14. Rehearsals will be three or four times a week beginning Jan. 14. Actors must be available for all rehearsals a week before opening; actors should list all conflicts on the audition sheet.
