ART by Yasmina Reza


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. 

Audition Dates: 

  • Sunday, November 14, 2021 / 6 pm to 8 pm
  • Monday, November 15, 2021 / 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm


Show runs 1 weekend – February 4, 5, and 6 (Fri/Sat @ 8pm, Sun @ 2pm)

Production Details:

Tech week begins Sunday Jan. 30th

Rehearsals are 12/5, 6, 7, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 1/2, 3, 10, 12, 13, 17, 20, 23, 25, 27

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 govern 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.

Masks are required in the Center at all times.
