Stage III Community Theater bringing, 'Red' to the Oil City

(Casper, Wyo.) - Auditions for the opening show of our 2016-2017 season will be held at Stage III on June 12-13 at 6:00 pm. Based on events occurring in 1958-1959, John Logan’s visceral Red features artist Mark Rothko at the height of his career. Ken, Rothko's young assistant, works beside Rothko as he struggles to create a series of large paintings commissioned by New York’s brand new Four Seasons Restaurant. As they paint, they challenge each other with big questions about art:-- what it takes to create it and what its role should be in the world. Two male roles: - ARTIST MARK ROTHKO - ASSISTANT KEN PERFORMANCE DATES: August 5-6, 11-13, 26-28. DIRECTOR: MARY McPHERSON #sponsored #oilcity #news #whatshappening
