COS Theatre Arts is casting roles for 7 men and 7 women for:
THE TRAGEDY OF MACBETH
Freely Adapted & Directed by Chris Mangels
From the Play by William Shakespeare

College of the Sequoias Performing Arts
915 S Mooney Blvd, Visalia, California 93277

This brand-new, verse adaptation of one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays explores just how easy it is for a ‘good person’ to do bad things. Somewhere in the American Southwest, an elite special-ops team has been tasked with combatting a mysterious drug cartel. One of the team – haunted by deep, personal loss and longing for a better future – makes a dangerous decision in a desperate attempt to “take care of his own.” What results is an escalating series of betrayals and murders that rockets toward an inescapable and terrifying conclusion. With a plan to seamlessly incorporate pre-recorded video into live theatrical performance, this production is sure to be a unique multimedia experience for artists and audience alike.

PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE
?Written by Steve Martin
Directed by James McDonnell & Schyler Mayo

Paris, 1904: The Lapin Agile, beloved watering hole to struggling artists and would-be geniuses, welcomes two soon-to-be legends for one extraordinary night. Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein, whose egos are as big as their intellects, spar with the regulars and each other about art, science, inspiration, love, and the promise of the 20th Century. Throw into this mix a mysterious visitor with a penchant for blue suede shoes, and you have an infectiously dizzy, absurdist comedy.
