NIC Theater Department to hold auditions for winter play

The North Idaho College Theater Department will be holding auditions for its winter production of David Auburn's Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play Proof Nov. 22 and Nov. 23. Auditions will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. in Boswell Hall Schuler Auditorium. Two females who can play roles for characters in their 20s to 30s are needed as well as two males, one who can play a character aged 20 to 30 and one aged 50 to 70. Community members are encouraged to audition. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script and no prepared material is necessary. Scripts are currently available for early check out in Boswell Hall Room 227. Proof is centered around a character named Catherine, a troubled 25-year-old woman who has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions, which are sparked by the arrival of her estranged sister Claire and the attention of Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks her father left behind. Over the long weekend that follows, a budding romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all. How much of her father's madness—or genius—will she inherit? The play will be directed by Tracey Benson. Performances will be Feb. 17, 18, 19, 24, 25 and 26 in NIC's Boswell Hall Schuler Auditorium. The play contains adult language. Information: (208) 769-3220.
