Auditions for ‘ART’

Auditions for ‘ART’

By Yasmina Reza

Translated by Christopher Hampton

Directed by Derek Baxter (

The Carrollwood Cultural Center and director Derek Baxter are looking to cast three male-identifying actors for the play ART by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton.

How much are you willing to pay for a painting? This simple question creates a slowly growing bonfire in Yasmina Reza’s Tony and Olivier-Award-winning intellectual comedy about the lives of three long-time friends, the meaning of art and life, and the lengths we go to protect those we care about.

  • Monday, November 15, 2021 / 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Character Breakdown:

MARC: A practical and down-to-earth man in his 30 or 40s, not a fan of modern art.

SERGE: A man who has found peace in modern art where the old rules are thrown out and acceptance and instinct governs what is valuable. Also in his 30 or 40s

YVAN: A man in his 20s or 30’s who is moved by the painting and finds himself in the middle of his friends’ feud.

Please prepare a one-minute monologue and there will also be cold readings from the script.
