Auditions Set For Arthur Miller Classic At COC

theaterartNext week, the College of the Canyons theatre department will hold special auditions for the roles of Willy Loman and Linda Loman in the college’s spring 2011 production of “Death of a Salesman.”

One of the most important plays in modern theatre, Arthur Miller’s 1949 classic, “Death of a Salesman” tells the story of Willy Loman, a down-on-his-luck, middle-aged salesman, unable to comprehend how or why he never achieved the success and fortune he dreamed of.

Faced with the realization that his life is a failure, Willy becomes further and further estranged from his family, and begins to lose contact with reality.

Powerful, disturbing and relevant, “Death of a Salesman” is a modern tragedy, seen as a caustic attack on the American dream, and society’s obsession with material wealth and the trappings of success.

Auditions for the roles of Willy and Linda Loman will take place from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 18, in Pico Canyon Hall, Room 101.

Interested actors are asked to arrive at noon to complete paperwork and sign up for an audition slot. Auditioning actors will have the opportunity to perform a prepared monologue and/or read scenes from the play.

Auditions for all other roles will take place at 6 p.m. Tuesday Feb. 8, and Wednesday Feb. 9, 2011 in the college’s Black Box theatre.

“Casting the right actors for these two roles is crucial to the success of this production,” said Paul Wickline, COC theatre department chair. “We felt it would be best to hold early auditions to give the director plenty of time to select the best actors to play Willy and Linda. This will allow time for special rehearsals with these actors before full rehearsals begin in February.”

For more information about auditions for the COC production of “Death of a Salesman” please visit www.canyons.edu/departments/theatre or contact Paul Wickline at paul.wickline@canyons.edu.
