About The Event

Please bring a theatrical resume, headshot (if able), and a complete list of conflicts from April 1st through August 10th. Auditions will consist of selected readings from the script on both nights. You do not have to attend both sessions. The Play: 1939 Hollywood is abuzz. Legendary producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic, Gone with the Wind, a film adaptation of Margaret Mitchell’s novel. The screenplay, you see, just doesn’t work. So what’s an all-powerful movie mogul to do? While fending off the film’s stars, gossip columnists and his own father-in-law, Selznick sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls formidable director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz. Summoning both to his office, he locks the doors, closes the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the three men labor over five days to fashion a screenplay that will become the blueprint for one of the most successful and beloved films of all time. The Characters and age requirements: - David O. Selznick - 37(ish). - Ben Hecht - 35(ish). - Victor Fleming - 50(ish) - Miss Poppenghul - No age requirements. Moonlight and Magnolias is, of course, based on actual people, and *mostly* true events. With that in mind, the above ages are accurate to the ages the real people would have been in 1939. That said, please do not feel constrained by the ages listed above. The final cast will be determined based on chemistry and believability.
