Auditions for the play "Rank," by Robert Massey, are today and Tuesday, 6-8 p.m., at Cité des Arts in downtown Lafayette.
Auditions consist of a cold read from the script.
Rank needs two male actors ages 50's and male actors ages 28-35. Performances are Aug. 10-12, 17-19. Loren Farmer is the director.
Rank is a terse, darkly comic thriller exploring the boundaries of loyalty, trust and friendship in a cynical world of avarice and betrayal. The action of the play unfolds when one desperate taxi-man takes on a job he should have the sense the refuse. Rank examines the lure of addiction in all its forms as two gamblers struggle to resist one last throw of the dice.
Frank’s Casing Crew, now doing business as Frank’s International, will make its final appearance on ABiz’s list of the Top 50 Privately Held Companies in Acadiana this year, and once again, it will likely be at the top with more than $1 billion in annual revenues. The 75-year-old company specializing in tubular fabrication and installation services to the oil and gas industry plans to go public this year.
