Auditions have been scheduled for two stage productions this week. They are:
- WHITE MONEY, a play by Utah native Julie Jensen. Auditions will be Thursday, Dec. 13, from 1 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. at Salt Lake Acting Company, 168 W. 500 North.The play requires four women, from their mid-20s to 50s, and one man, who is capable of aging from 30 to 55.
"White Money" has been awarded a major grant from the Fund for New American Plays, a project of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, with support from American Express Company in cooperation with the President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities.
This grant will allow the playwright to choose the director for the project.
For an audition appointment, contact SLAC at 363-0526. Auditioners must bring a resume and a photograph. Scripts are available to be checked out by prospective auditioners.
The play, which was presented last season as one of SLAC's free "spring readings" series, will be staged March 13 through April 14.
- ROBIN HOOD, a Jester Stage production at City Rep, is being directed by Joanne M. Parker.
Auditions will be Tuesday, Dec. 11, from 6 until 10 p.m. at the Utah Theatre, 148 S. Main.
