In 1998, building on a concept of locally-produced professional theater that he first experienced at Edgecliff College in the 1970’s, Executive Director Michael Shooner established New Edgecliff Theatre. “I wanted to create a theatre company where the connection between actor and audience was the essential element,” says Shooner. Now entering its 15th season, NET continues to present works featuring local talent that focuses on the actor’s craft. Over the years, Cincinnati audiences have enjoyed such shows as “I Stand Before You Naked”, “Master Harold and the Boys”, “American Buffalo”, “Equus” and “Title of Show” and has collaborated with such organizations as The Carnegie Center for Visual and Performing Arts, Xavier University and The Freedom Center.
“As we approach our fifteenth season, I’ve been thinking about what’s next for our audiences,” says Artistic Director Jim Stump. “Audiences have come to know us as a theatre where the audience is drawn into the story by quality actors performing excellent scripts, and they frequently ask, “What’s next?” This sense of anticipation inspired the theme for our fifteenth anniversary season: “Next”. Whether it’s the excitement of plans for the future, the monotony of endless days of routine or the uncertainty of the unknown – there is always the exquisite sense of discovery as a story unfolds.”
New Edgecliff Theatre will hold auditions for two of its main stage productions, Burn This and Reasons to be Pretty, on Tuesday, August 9th from 7-10pm at the Essex Studios (2511 Essex Place, Cincinnati, OH 45206). No appointment is necessary. Roles are available for men and women, ages 25-45. Auditionees are asked to prepare two contrasting monologues and to bring a headshot and resume to the audition. Invited callbacks for Burn This will be held on Thursday, August 11th.
