Auditions for The Shape of Things and Standing on Ceremony at CDC Theatre


Auditions for Two Productions, Standing on Ceremony and The Shape of Things, at CDC Theatre CDC Theater, New Jersey’s oldest continuously producing community theatre, will hold auditions for two exciting special productions that will take place in the early part of the theatre’s 99th season. The 2017 Short Play Festival featuring Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays, and other short pieces, will hold auditions on May 7 at 7:30pm and May 8 at 7:00pm with performances planned for September 7, 8 and 9. This special event is a non-equity, non-paying production and 50% of the ticket profits will be donated to the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network, or GLSEN. Auditions and performances will take place at CDC Theatre, 78 Winans Ave in Cranford, NJ. Additional information can be found by visiting or the Cranford Dramatic Club Facebook page. In a second special event, director Cynthia Ross and cast will ask the questions: How far would you go for love? For art? What would you be willing to change? What price might you pay? Such are the painful questions explored by Neil LaBute in The Shape of Things. A young student drifts into an ever-changing relationship with an art major while his best friends' engagement crumbles, so unleashing a drama that peels back the skin of two modern-day relationships. Auditions will be held on May 15, 16 at 7:45pm at the theatre’s 78 Winans Ave location, with performances on August 10, 11 and 12 at 8:00pm.
