CSM Holds Auditions for "The Empty Chair"
College of Southern Maryland will hold auditions for Cause Theatre Production: "The Empty Chair" at 6 p.m. on Nov. 12 and 13 at College of Southern Maryland, La Plata Campus, Fine Arts Center, 8730 Mitchell Road, La Plata. "The Empty Chair," by Tim Kelly, is about a counseling center for teenagers recovering from substance abuse. One of the teenager's peers, Robert, has just died of an overdose. Unsure of whether the incident is an accident or suicide, the atmosphere is tense and uneasy. Each young person recalls their memories of Robert and the dramatic monologues tell us a great deal about each speaker and the terrors of drug abuse. Auditions are open to those 16 years of age and older. Prepare a one-minute monologue. This production will be performed at the CSM Prince Frederick Campus, Jan. 25; Leonardtown Campus, Jan. 31-Feb. 2; La Plata Campus, Feb. 7-9.
