Shasta College Auditions

Audition for Shasta College Fall production: "The Farnsworth Invention"

This October, Shasta College is producing Aaron Sorkin’s fast-paced witty historical drama, The Farnsworth Invention. The play centers on the parallel stories of Philo Farnsworth, a self-trained farm boy turned scientist and inventor, and David Sarnoff, a Machiavellian visionary and founder of both RCA and NBC as the two race time, each other, and the international scientific community to create a new and radical form of mass communication: television. This alternately hilarious and touching story examines the lives of the two brilliant men and questions the ideals and motives of a generation of pioneering inventors in the early 20th century.

Auditions for The Farnsworth Invention will be on 8/28/18 and 8/29/18 in the theatre at Shasta College. Please prepare a one minute monologue and meet in the theatre lobby at 6pm. Characters in the show range from ages ten to seventy—everyone in the community is encouraged to audition!
