Take your Faith to a new stage: audition

The Archdiocese of Glasgow Arts Project (ACAP) is holding open auditions for two new theatre productions set to hit parishes in late September and October.  Actors aged 16 and upwards are needed to play a number of parts and AGAP would also like to hear from those interested in being stage crew.  No experience is necessary.

Pure Dead Dangerous is a collaboration with the Scottish Catholic Parliamentary Office to raise awareness of the issues surrounding the End of Life Assistance Bill. It is a collection of monologues and short sketches that explore a variety of situations and perspectives from doctors, priests, family members, the elderly and the terminally ill. The play will be accompanied by an informal question and answer session with Catholic parliamentary officer John Deighan and is a great way to find out more about the Church’s stance on euthanasia and assisted suicide. It will run for four evenings during the week beginning September 27.

Going for Broke on Jesus: the Bob Park Story is a true life story about a man’s conversion experience and his redemption from a life of alcoholism and gambling. There is a lot of humour in the play, whilst it tackles some very serious issues and opens up Christian ideas of forgiveness and redemption.  Audiences will have the unique opportunity to meet the real Bob Park on whose life the play is based, listen to his testimony, ask questions and hear his music after the play. Going for Broke on Jesus will run for four evenings during the week beginning October 25.

To audition, simply turn up on either Monday August 9 or Thursday August 12 at 7.30pm in St Michael’s Church Hall, 1350 Gallowgate, Glasgow G31 4DJ (diagonally opposite Cineworld at the Parkhead Forge Shopping Centre).  Rehearsals will commence week August 30. Full details of the parts available and the requirements are on the AGAP website http://www.agap.org.uk or contact 0141 554 1333
