The Wild Thyme Players will hold auditions for “Duels & Desserts 2” July 21 from 3 to 5 p.m. and July 23 from 5 to 7 p.m. at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church off Merchants Drive in North Knoxville.
The performance will take place September 15 in the World’s Fair Park Amphitheater. This second annual fundraiser for Wild Thyme’s stage combat training program, “Shake, Rattle & Role,” will feature several excerpted fight scenes and a swashbuckling original one-act play based on “The Three Musketeers.”
The auditions are open to all interested individuals aged 16 and over, including seniors and persons with disabilities. No experience with stage combat is necessary, though some movement or choreography experience (e.g. martial arts, dance, or gymnastics) is useful.
Actors will train in a variety of weapons and fighting styles including broadsword, epee, quarterstaff, knife & unarmed stage combat. Nine roles are available for the one-act, including several that do not require fighting. Headshots and resumes are helpful, but not required. No appointment is necessary, but allow at least 20 minutes to participate in a group movement demonstration.... read the rest of the story by Subscribing now.
