Goodbye, Iphigenia – Auditions
Goodbye, Iphigenia by George MacEwan Green, directed by John Foreman, is the youth One Act Play which will also be going forward to the All England One Act play Festival. Playing dates in the Harborough Theatre are 26th February to 2nd March.
Ancient Greece, around 400 BC. The Greek armada of 1,000 ships is bound for Troy to rescue Helen, but has been becalmed for weeks near the Aegian island of Aulis. Only Princess Iphigenia can raise the wind, but there is a high price to pay.
Characters are: King Agamemnon of Greece, Commander of the Greek Armies and Aulis; Queen Clytemnestra, his wife; Iphigenia, their daughter; Kalchas, The High Priest; Andreas, a young soldier who acts as a narrator; Penelope, A young maid servant to Iphigenia.
All parts are to be played by senior members of Parsnips Youth Theatre, or MHDS members under 19. If you are under 19 and want to audition and are not a member, you may if you are over 14. But if you get involved with a play, you will need to become a drama society member.
Auditions are either in the theatre lounge or upstairs in the Harlequin Room at 6.30 pm. If you don’t know the way to the Harlequin Room there will be someone in the theatre lounge who can direct you. Further details from John Foreman: firstname.lastname@example.org
