Auditions for Brazosport Center Stages’ “The More Things Change…” set for January 29 & 30

Join Brazosport Center Stages for open auditions for The More Things Change… at 7:00 PM on Monday, January 29 and Tuesday, January 30 at The Center. Show dates are March 15-17 & 22-24.


ABOUT THE SHOW: For the past year, BCS volunteers have been creating an Original Documentary theatre piece entitled “The More Things Change…,”based on the stories, lived experiences and actual words of people from our community. Told through the lens of the group of artists who created the work, the play seeks to learn about change (both big and small, personal and societal), and how those changes impact the lives of everyday people.


CAST NEEDS: Facilitator Bobby Britton Jr. is seeking to cast a diverse ensemble of actors who will each play multiple roles. Dynamic performers age 16 and up are encouraged to audition. Cuttings from the script will be provided at auditions.


Special Note: Due to the structure of this script, the rehearsal schedule may be flexible depending on availability. If you have considered auditioning in the past but have been worried about scheduling, this may be the show for you! More scheduling information will be available at auditions.

Brazosport Center Stages is excited to launch its first-ever Original Documentary Project! Come join us for one of our information sessions to learn more! Sessions are Sunday, Tuesday, & Wednesday, September 11, 13, & 14, at 7:00 PM.

What is Documentary Theatre?

Broadly conceived, documentary theatre is fact-based performance composed using archival materials such as trial transcripts, official or government documents, iconic visual images or video footage, newspaper reporting, historical writing and recorded interviews. Documentary performances often emerge in response to social or political crises; documentary playwrights offer their audiences a theatrical presentation of real events to inspire critical questions about history, memory and justice as well as provoke social action to change the world outside the theater walls.

What are the casting needs?

Director Bobby Britton Jr. is looking to cast 12-16 diverse and dynamic storytellers. Using the techniques of Documentary Theatre, participants will spend the 2022-2023 season creating a performance piece that will be presented as part of the 2023-2024 season.

What are the requirements?

Participants must be at least 14 years of age and commit to bi-weekly meetings. Please come to the information session with a device that can capture voice recordings (most cellular phones can do this) and wear comfortable shoes and clothes.
