Actresses For Classic Comedy Play
Location: Falmouth, MA
Ethnicity: All ethnicities
Auditions: Blithe Spirit.
We invite you to come out and audition for Blithe Spirit, a classic British comedy with sparkling dialogue, exciting special effects, and some great acting opportunities. There are 7 roles, all for adults of any age - we will figure out characters' ages when we have a chance to see who comes out to audition, who works well with whom, and who has LOTS of free time during the period December 2 - early February.
Important information for auditioners:
The show will be in production for two weekends, January 27-Feb 6, with three shows per weekend. Snow days will be the weekend of February 12.
If you come on the 12th, try to hold the evening of the 13th open; we will not have official "callbacks," but instead will ask some individuals who come on Saturday to join us toward the end of the auditions on Sunday. If you can't come back, it's not a "make or break," but do let us know. Similarly, let us know if neither of those dates/times are possible for you, but you ARE available during the rehearsal period.
"Sides" (pages of script) will shortly be online at website (please follow the link). Please do take a look at all the scenes and all the roles that are available for folks of your gender; we will have everyone read more than one role. If you are auditioning for the super-fun role of Madame Arcati, be prepared to move: I want to know that you are able to fall on the floor, leap up, etc. As Angela Lansbury just played the role on Broadway at age 83, I'm thinking that age is NOT a factor - though mobility is!
Because we won't have use of the theater until White Christmas is up and running, we will have only a few table-top rehearsals prior to December 2. We WILL, however, begin rehearsing as soon as possible in the theater, and we will have a very intense rehearsal schedule (working around Christmas) through January. Be sure your calendar is relatively clear during that time, as we have a short window available for a complex show.
Characters are all adults, and can be of almost any age. Elvira should be relatively young (as she was glamorous when she died 7 years ago) - but glamor can be young or middle aged!
