NWFSC to hold auditions

Northwest Florida State College will hold open auditions for two productions to be presented in repertory the week of March 6-12 — Carlo Goldoni’s "The Servant of Two Masters" and John Pielmeier’s "Agnes of God," both directed by Clint Mahle.

Auditions will be at 2 p.m. Nov. 12 in the Sprint Theater of the Mattie Kelly Arts Center on the Niceville campus. Sign-in starts at 1:30 p.m. The director asks for a 90 second prepared audition consisting of two short monologues, one dramatic and one comedic. The comedic monologue should make use of a broad physical style. Auditions will be private with the director and stage manager.

Callbacks, by appointment, may be held after the initial round if needed. "Agnes of God" is a women only cast. Both men and women, however, will be cast in "The Servant of Two Masters." For more information, contact Clint Mahle at 850-729-6007 or mahlej@nwfsc.edu.
