On Campus at GCC: Auditions coming for fall productions

August 09, 2011|By Wendy Grove

Open auditions for the Glendale Community College Theatre Arts Department productions of Neil LaBute’s “Autobahn” and “The Shape of Things” will be held at 7 p.m. Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 in the Auditorium.

Those auditioning should prepare a one-minute contemporary monologue. It is also advised that the plays be read before the auditions.

Cast members must be enrolled in theatre arts workshops in the fall semester. Those interested in auditioning should register for the classes before auditions. The required courses are Theatre Arts 163 — Contemporary Theatre Workshop and Theatre Arts 129 — Backstage Lab for Performers.

The plays will be staged alternately for four weeks with eight performances each beginning Oct. 19 in the Auditorium Studio Theatre. Jeanette D. Farr will be the director.


LaBute’s “Autobahn” is a collection of one-act plays set within the confines of the front seat. The seven vignettes are an unsettling montage exploring the ethos of perception and relationship. “The Shape of Things” is thematically similar to his film “In the Company of Men,” but with the genders reversed. The plays contain mature themes, language and subject matter.

For those with more musical talents, the spring 2012 production will be “Godspell,” with auditions set for Nov. 16 and 17 and performances starting April 19.

Additional information on the theater arts program can be found on the website at or by calling (818) 240-1000, Ext. 5618. The college is located at 1500 N. Verdugo Rd.
