SPECIAL AUDITION OPPORTUNITY! Confetti Stage Inc., in partnership with WAMC’s The Linda will be staging a production of The Mountaintop by Katori Hall, to be directed by Jean-Remy Monnay for Black History Month. Auditions will be November 4th and 5th at 6:30 PM at the Albany Masonic Hall (67 Corning Place, Albany, NY 12207). The performance will be Friday, February 28th at 7:30 PM at the Linda, WAMC’s Performing Arts Studio (with the possibility of a second show on Saturday, February 29th).
The Mountaintop is a fictionalized, fantastical take on the final moments of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This humorous and heartbreaking story is about Dr. King’s strange encounter with a mysterious maid who enters his room in the Lorraine Motel in 1968.
African-American actors are needed to fill the following roles
Martin Luther King Jr. (30’s – 40’s): The warm, charismatic, and very human figure behind the immortal legacy of his Civil Rights work.
Camae: (20’s) A funny, flirtatious, and very confident woman who doesn’t seem to fit in with the time and place she occupies. She appears to know a lot more about Dr. King and his legacy than a young maid should.
No Monologues will be necessary. Actors will be reading from the script.
