The Great Gatsby Auditions

The Stage Company will hold auditions for the fourth production of its thirty-eighth season, The Great Gatsby, adapted by Simon Levy, on Monday, February 10th and Tuesday February 11th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in the East Theater of the Varsity Center.

Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire, passionately pursues the elusive Daisy Buchanan. Nick Carraway, a young newcomer to Long Island, is drawn into their world of obsession, greed and danger. The breathtaking glamour and decadent excess of the Jazz Age come to the stage in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel, and in Simon Levy’s adaptation, approved by the Fitzgerald Estate.

There will be cold readings from the script provided. Those auditioning should bring a complete list of any potential conflicts they may have that would prevent them from attending rehearsals

Performance dates: March 27-29 & April 2-5, 2020.

Venue: The Varsity Center, 418 South Illinois Avenue, Carbondale, IL
