Thalian Association Community Theatre
WILMINGTON, NC- Thalian Association Community Theatre will hold auditions for a special theatrical event, The Caine Munity Court Martial, on Monday May 21 and Tuesday May 22 at 7pm. Auditions will be held at the Community Arts Center, 120 S. 2nd Street in downtown Wilmington. The production, directed by Jordan Wolfe, runs June 29 through July 15 on the fantail of the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA.
Audition participants need to be prepared to read from a provided script.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning novel about a court martial has been adapted by the author into suspenseful evening of theatre. A young lieutenant is relieved his captain of command in the midst of a typhoon on the grounds that the captain, Queeg is a psychopath in crisis and commanded the ship and its crew to destruction. Naval tradition is against him, but testimony eventually reveals a devastating picture of Queeg’s mental disintegration.
