Please join fellow FBWEV members for a back-stage tour of Arena Stage on Monday, July 23rd at 11:00 a.m. Victor Vasquez, the Casting Director of the new play Dave, will talk to the group about working in Artistic Development and specifically about the process of casting Dave which is based on the successful Paramount Pictures movie. The follow-up discussion will include, for example, how Arena approached play development and its partnership with one of the film industry’s movie power houses.  

Following is a brief description of the musical play as seen on the Arena Stage website:

“From a Tony and Pulitzer Prize award-winning creative team, comes the world-premiere musical comedy Dave, adapted from the Oscar-nominated film. Dave tells the story of high school teacher (and presidential lookalike) Dave Kovic, who is hired by the Secret Service as a stand-in for the Commander-in-Chief. When the President falls ill under less than “presidential” circumstances, Dave is thrust into the Oval Office to avoid a national scandal and must find a way to gain the trust and love of the American people … and the First Lady.”

The tour is limited to 15 people.

This one hour + presentation will be followed by lunch at 12:30 at Station 4 located two blocks from the theater for those who wish to participate.

Note: Transportation to Arena Stage is each participant’s responsibility. Arena Stage is accessible by Metro. The Waterfront Station, on the Green line, is located one block East of Arena at 4th and M Streets.

Cost: The Backstage Tour is free. Each participant will pay for his/her own lunch.

Accessibility: Arena Stage is accessible.

Members only. Registration is required.
