Auditions scheduled for "Silence"

by NCTC Drama | Nov 25, 2014 <p> </p>

The North Central Texas College Drama Department in Flower Mound announces auditions for Silence by Moira Buffini will be held on Dec. 1 and Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m., on the NCTC Flower Mound campus.

Silence is a comedy set in the Dark Ages of England. It tells the story of Ymma, a bitter Norman noblewoman banished to England and forced to marry a 14-year-old lordling, Silence, who is more than he seems. After an unexpected standoff with the despotic King Ethelred, the two newlyweds - joined by Ymma's servant Agnes, Roger a hapless priest, and Eadric, a soldier with an eye for seeing saints - embark on a journey through power, identity, gender, and desire that will change their lives forever.

"I was attracted to the story for a number of reasons, but the most important one is that the play ultimately is about finding your own destiny and then being willing to seize it," said NCTC's Thom Talbott who will direct the play. "Silence is the tale of six people that are thrown together not entirely of their own will, but they are all at a place they're not necessarily sure that they want to be. They're all looking for who they are, where they are, and what to do to change (or rule) their world."

Three men and three women are needed for this play. The auditions are open to all NCTC students on any of our campuses. The auditions will be held on the NCTC Flower Mound Campus at Parker Square in Room 206 on Dec. 1 and Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m.

Rehearsals will be held at the Flower Mound campus and the performances will be held Feb. 21-22 at 8 p.m., at the MCL Grand Black Box in Lewisville.
