SSCC sets ‘By the Bog of Cats’ auditions

News Journal

SSCC Theatre will hold auditions for the spring production of “By the Bog of Cats,” by Marina Carr. Open to community members and students, auditions will be held 6:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14 in the Edward K. Daniels Auditorium on Southern State Community College’s Central Campus, 100 Hobart Drive, Hillsboro.

Loosely based on Euripides’ tragedy “Medea,” Carr’s “By the Bog of Cats” is the prophetic tale of Hester Swane, an Irish traveler who attempts to come to terms with a lifetime of abandonment. Set on the bleak, ghostly landscape of the Bog of Cats, this provocative drama discloses one woman’s courageous attempts to lay claim to that which is hers, as her world is torn in two.

Those interested in auditioning should prepare and memorize a dramatic one- to two-minute monologue. Those interested in working on available crew positions will be asked to complete an interview the night of auditions. If interested in auditioning, but unavailable to attend the audition date, please contact Director Rainee Angles ([email protected]) to schedule an alternate audition date prior to Dec. 14.

“By the Bog of Cats” will be performed April 5-7, 2019. For more information about available roles and rehearsal schedule, please visit
