Disgraced



by Ayad Akhtar
directed by Bob Kleinberg
produced by Malca Giblin

Amir Kapoor is a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. Emily, his wife, is white; she's an artist, and her work is influenced by Islamic imagery. When the couple hosts a dinner party, what starts out as a friendly conversation, escalates into into an intense conversation involving religion, race and violence. The Pulitzer Prize-winner for Drama in 2013, Disgraced questions whether we can ever truly escape the confines of our upbringing and our heritage.

Note: This show includes serious themes, strong and potentially offensive language, violent behavior, and is not recommended for children.

With: Scott Stofko, Alison Starr, David Kimmelman, Lailoni Otha, Ali Cheraghpour

Auditions

Auditions for Cabaret Night are now open.

Greenbelt Arts Center will be holding a 'Cabaret Night' on Saturday, June 1. The theme for this evening is 'Songs I Wouldn't Normally Get To Sing On Stage". This can mean a lot of different things: wrong gender, wrong color, wrong type, wrong age....

Regular GAC director Jeffery Lesniak is producing this event. He is now accepting applications to perform. If you have worked at GAC recently (for some very loose definition of 'recently'), you are encouraged to apply. Please submit the following information:

  • Name
  • What song(s) you want to do
  • What show it's from
  • How it fits the theme
  • The last GAC show or two that you were involved with
via email to jeff@greenbeltartscenter.org

Note that whatever song you choose must be covered under the ASCAP license agreement. Go to ascap.com -> Repertory to ensure that what you want to do is there. A lot of, but not all, musical theater pieces are included on this list.

As to how the selection process will be: we'd like to get about 2 hours entertainment; at about 5 minutes a number, that's around 24 pieces. We're limited to no more than three songs from any one show, so we'll take that into consideration. We'll probably lean more towards people who have worked at GAC more recently. We'll be looking for a variety of shows, a variety of eras, and a variety of song styles, We'd like some duets or group numbers in the mix, and this won't preclude doing a solo number as well.

There will initially be no auditions, but we may have you submit a video of a preview performance. Feel free to send 'First choice, second choice, third choice' selections. Duets and groups are welcome.

As to music, there will hopefully be a pianist or two, there will also be the option to play karaoke tracks. You will have to find either the tracks or the sheet music yourself. Once the performers have been chosen, you'll be on your own to work out the performance. We'll have one rehearsal mostly for logistics, probably the evening before.

We're also looking for a pianist or two.

Please submit no later than April 1st, so that people can be notified and can start working on their performance.




All shows start at 8pm unless otherwise stated. For reservations or more information call 301-441-8770.
