Lifeboat Preserver

STAR Productions at Saint Francis University will hold auditions for John Steinbeck's

Lifeboat

adapted from the Alfred Hitchcock film.

… it is not easy … it is long … it is hard … it is good …

a two-act World War II Drama, focus on the human—the people in-and-of that War

Auditions will be held January 18, 19, and 20 (whichever date is most convenient) from 1pm to 3pm.

No memorized audition selection required reading and preparation-time provided.
No previous experience necessary for audition.

Non-traditional casting!

  • age-less
  • cross-gender
  • color-blind
  • no body-blocks

performance lasts about 2 hours plus an intermission
performances are scheduled for April 10-13, 2013

This play is for mature audiences —

the coarse language is appropriate to that of adult men-and-women
caught in the extreme pressures and the intense stresses of 
a World at War
gritty and gruesome, rough and tough in all aspects:
language, physicality, notions and emotions…not the spring-musical !
