Actors obsessed

January 2, 2013

The Huntsville Community Theatre Company is calling all local thespians to strut their stuff at open auditions for their final production of this season.

Casting for the psychological thriller Dangerous Obsession requires two males and one female, with the auditions being held on Jan. 8 and Jan. 10 at 7 p.m. at Chaffey Hall in Huntsville.

Producer Jan Jacklin says those wanting to try out can just show up and read from the provided script. 

While there’s no actual age limit, she says the roles require actors who can pull off portraying individuals aged 25 to 40. The theatre company is also looking for a stage manager and production assistants.

“The whole idea with this is getting people involved,” says Jacklin. “They’re definitely open auditions; there’s no pre-casting.”

She says the play is quite demanding  for the actors because three characters carry the show throughout roughly one and a half hours. However, Jacklin notes with the amount of talented individuals in Huntsville, they have a great number of people to choose from.

Jacklin discovered Dangerous Obsession while looking for plays to fill out the theatre company’s season. She was researching plays being done by community theatre companies in Toronto she used to work with. After visiting the theatre companies’ websites, she stumbled upon this play being done by the Village Playhouse.

“We wanted something different other than just comedies or musicals to broaden the drama scene here in Huntsville,” she says. “I ordered the script on line and read it. I couldn’t even put it down. Then it went to our executive board. They all loved it as well.”

Directed by Caroline Heyblom, Dangerous Obsession requires one male to play a successful businessman/ uppercrust socialite and another male, nose-in-the books type, plus one female actress to play a very confident socialite and dutiful wife. Rehearsals will begin in February, with the actual play being performed from May 23 to June 1.

Written by N.J. Crisp, Dangerous Obsession takes the audience into the lives of a well-to-do couple who are visited by a man and have their lives turned upside down. The wife doesn’t work, as her husband is the breadwinner. Without children in their lives, they have a very lavish lifestyle.

“The play opens with her just listening to some classical music,” says Jacklin. “It’s in a conservatory, so it’s a one-unit set. It just takes place in a beautiful conservatory with French doors over-looking gardens and that sort of thing. Then there’s an unexpected visitor who arrives before the husband comes home from work. She’s not expecting him, she doesn’t recognize him at first and it’s almost like you watch this couple’s world crumble from then on. It’s sit on the edge-of-your seat riveting.”

Jacklin says set designer Janet Copeland is excited about the prospect of creating this beautiful conservatory. Without any other props required, the scene created by the set will go a long way to showing the life led by the rich couple.

“There’s only three actors and no other props except the set,” she says. “It’s going to be very interesting.”
