The Falcon's Eye Theatre at Folsom Lake College calls for FLC students and actors from the community to audition for its fall production of Hot L Baltimore. All skill levels encouraged to audition.

The Falcon's Eye opens its thirteenth season with Lanford Wilson’s tragi-comedy of the unwanted, The Hot L Baltimore. This drama carefully renders a group portrait of dispossessed American souls in a seedy hotel on the eve of its demolition. It portrays everyday encounters of the human comedy. In the resulting mosaic each character emerges clearly defined, and the sum total of what they are becomes a poignant, powerful call to America to recover lost values and to restore itself.


Open Monologue Auditions - Monday, September 9, 2019 from 6:30 to 9:30 pm.  Sign up for an audition time slot. We will be contacting you to confirm your audition appointment in the days leading up to auditions. Please Note: If you have performed in a Falcon's Eye Theatre production in the past, you may skip the required open monologue audition. Please use the same link to make an appointment for callbacks on Tuesday, September 10 from 6:30-9:30pm.


Audition check-in will take place in the Drama Lab (PAC-1170) at the Harris Center for the Arts on the Main Folsom campus of Folsom Lake College, 10 College Parkway (off E. Bidwell St.), Folsom, 95630. On College Parkway, turn left at the stop sign. $2 parking permits are available at kiosks located throughout the parking lots.
