A couple of you have noticed my typo on yesterday’s email. Ixion’s picnic and auditions are JULY 29, not June 29 which has already whizzed by….
IXION Potluck Picnic precedes SEASON AUDITIONS July 29
Ixion is holding our first ever potluck picnic to celebrate the community of patrons, performers, writers and technicians that have grown with Ixion. Just like every production, we think things work out best when we all bring a little something to the table. Ixion will provide the protein and sodas, if you'll just bring a dish to pass.
You'll get the chance meet other members of this growing community, while learning about our 2018-2019 season. Sneak a peek behind the scenes as we have sketches for upcoming shows and pieces from past productions. Readings from the three planned scripts and from members of Ixion's Wheel writing group will also be going on in the amphitheater next to the pavilion (or up close and personal in the pavilion if it rains) plus a few more surprises.
Please RSVP via https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2018-19-season-launch-potluck-picnic-tickets-46844208288
We will be holdingAUDITIONSimmediately following the picnic. For more information on auditions follow this link https://www.facebook.com/events/170669026972772/
We look forward to breaking bread with you; telling stories and building community.
Season auditions will be shortly after the potluck if you want to see the process from the beginning.
The one show that is NOT auditioning on JULY 29 is “Hope” a collection of short new scripts on that theme; up to eight winning scripts will be produced next May.
IXION is also Calling all WRITERS! Deadline September 30
Ixion is seeking short plays around the theme "Hope". Whether it's finding it, losing it or maintaining it, we want to see your stories. Whatever hope (or lack thereof) means to you, we look forward to any genre of its exploration.
