Casting Call: ACT 2020 (Concordia students only)

Auditions: January 27-31 | Performances: May 2020


Are you a Concordia student looking for an opportunity to be a part of a theatre production? Autodidacts Concordia Theatre (A.C.T) is currently in the midst of creating its third student-written, acted and produced theatrical production, and are looking for student actors to take part in the play! Whether you’re a theatre geek or have no theatre experience at all, you’re welcome to sign up for an audition slot.

PLAY SYNOPSIS:

It seemed like the only choice…

In the not-so-distant future, to save an overcrowded, suffocating Earth teetering on the edge of complete environmental collapse, the governments of the world come together and make an unprecedented and world-changing decision: to send half of the Earth’s population to live on Mars. Join the Autodidacts’ Concordia Theatre Club in this currently untitled anthology-style sci-fi dram-edy, as we explore the human cost of this decision in all its hilarity, heartbreak, and horror. As families are torn apart across the cosmos, rivals and friends confront their convictions in an alien world, and the red planet tests the very bonds we once thought were immutable, everyone must ask themselves: What do you do when you lose everything? How do you start over in a world that you don’t recognize? And how do you hold onto what truly matters?
