Auditions for The Elephant Man

Stage Right announces auditions for The Elephant Man on Jan 21-22, 2018 at the historic Crighton Theatre (7 PM). Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Performances will be on Apr. 13-29, 2018.

The Elephant Man is based on the life of John Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century. A horribly deformed young man, victim of rare skin and bone diseases, he has become the star freak attraction in traveling side shows. Found abandoned and helpless, he is admitted to London's prestigious Whitechapel hospital. Under the care of celebrated young physician Frederick Treves, Merrick is introduced to London society and slowly evolves from an object of pity to an urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati only to be denied his ultimate dream, to become a man like any other.
