Virtual auditions scheduled for WSCC’s ‘Vintage Hitchcock’

Virtual auditions are being scheduled for Walters State Community College’s fall production of “Vintage Hitchcock: A Virtual Radio Drama.”

Director T.J. Hicks decided to go with a radio drama to deliver a complete theatre experience even though everything is conveyed by voice alone.

“I know many groups are performing on Zoom, but I wanted to do something different,” he said.

“Vintage Hitchcock: A Virtual Radio Drama” combines three of the popular author’s work: “The 39 Steps,” “The Lodger” and “Sabotage.” Kent said the commercials placed throughout the show are some of best scenes. All advertised products are associated with Hitchcock – and, yes, The Bates Motel has a spot. The play is written by Joe Landry.

The production will be Nov. 20-22. Virtual auditions are happening now. Those auditioning should prepare two monologues of 30 seconds to a minute. The monologues may be read, they do not need to be memorized. Auditions will be audio only.

Email Kent at TJ.Kent@ws.edu to schedule an audition. Auditions end on Oct. 1.
