Isadoora Theatre of Door County Hosts Auditions for “Eclipse of the Soul”

Isadoora Theatre Company will hold auditions for its upcoming world premiere of Scott Kopischke’s Eclipse of the Soul on Monday, Aug. 22 and Tuesday, Aug. 23 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. Monday’s auditions will be held in the Lakeside Seminar Room at Björklunden Lodge in Baileys Harbor and Tuesday’s auditions will be held in the basement of the Door County Library in Sturgeon Bay.

In Eclipse of the Soul, an odd assortment of characters fills the cast of Othello at a local theater company as it prepares for its annual Shakespeare festival. When rehearsals are interrupted by the appearance of a mysterious spirit, they must solve the clues to figure out how and why she needs their help. Can they rescue her in time and still put on a show? Henry Timm directs the production, which will play at the Third Avenue Playhouse in Sturgeon Bay October 6 – 9 and 13 – 16.

The script calls for men and women of all ages. Persons auditioning need not be present for the entire time slot, but should plan to spend at least 20 minutes at the audition. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script; however, those wishing to present a prepared piece may do so. Prior acting experience is not required to be a part of this unique opportunity to present a new play. Stage crew and production staff are also needed. Interested parties should attend an audition to meet the director.

Björklunden is located at 7590 Boynton Lane, off of Hwy 57 just south of Baileys Harbor. The Sturgeon Bay branch of the Door County Library is located at 107 South 4th Avenue in Sturgeon Bay. For more information, call Isadoora at 920.493.3667, like us on facebook at or visit
