"Radium Girls" Show Needs Kids & TeensAnderson, IN, United StatesID: 543428Exp: 4/16/2023
Seeking performers ages 9 and above for the "Radium Girls" Show. Please see the details below. About the project: In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage- until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. Her chief adversary is her former employer, Arthur Roeder, an idealistic man who cannot bring himself to believe that the same element that shrinks tumors could have anything to do with the terrifying rash of illnesses among his employees. As the case goes on, however, Grace finds herself battling not just with the U.S. Radium Corporation, but with her own family and friends, who fear that her campaign for justice will backfire. Written with warmth and humor, Radium Girls is a fast-moving, highly theatrical ensemble piece with actors playing more than 30 parts- friends, co-workers, lovers, relatives, attorneys, scientists, consumer advocates, and myriad interested bystanders. Called a powerful and engrossing drama by critics, Radium Girls offers a wry, unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsession with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science. Additional info: Auditioners will be reading from the script. Performance Dates: June 1, 2, 3, 9, 10 | 7:30 pm & Sun, June 11 | 3:30 pm. Casting will be completed by Friday, April 21st and rehearsals will begin Tuesday, April 25th. If interested, please apply.
