"Queenie was a blonde, and her age stood still, and she danced twice a day in vaudeville…"
Nathanael Card of NCardCreative is seeking character voices for a reading of Joseph Moncure March's vaudeville era epic poem "The Wild Party" (on which both musicals of the same title are based)
Commitments are Sat 6/11 and Sat 6/18, 5p-9 at 2925 Bolivar Dr, in Berkeley (SE corner of Aquatic Park).
The reading, which will be invite-only and recorded for the intent of finding producers for a fully-staged production, will happen at 7pm on 6/18.
This is unpaid, but a fun time with a magnificent piece of literature.
"Some love is fire: some love is rust:
But the fiercest, cleanest love is lust.
And their lust was tremendous. It had the feel
Of hammers clanging; and stone; and steel:
And torches of the savage, roaring kind
That rip through iron and strike men blind:
Of long trains crashing through caverns under
Grey trembling streets, like angry thunder:
Of engines throbbing; and hoarse steam spouting;
And feet tramping; and great crowds shouting.
A lust so savage, they could have wrenched
The flesh from bone, and not have blenched."
