Audition for Oakton’s “The Shadow Box” Feb. 19-20

Actors are needed to bring the winner of the 1977 Pulitzer Prize for Drama to the stage. Open call auditions for Oakton Community College’s production of “The Shadow Box” are scheduled 6-9 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb. 19-20, at the college’s Studio One Theater, 1600 E. Golf Road, Des Plaines.

The director is seeking actors of all ages and ethnicities. Prepare a one-minute monologue. No appointment necessary.

“The Shadow Box” follows three cancer patients who dwell in separate cottages on a hospital’s grounds. Taking place within a 24-hour period, the drama portrays the humanity of these patients and their visitors doing what people do when confronted with questions that are too large to answer – speaking bluntly, laughing at dark humor, reminiscing and showing concern for others.

Performances are scheduled April 4-7 and April 11-14.
