CastingInfo

OLD GEEZER – 65 and upwards. Slightly insane and mischievous, fun to hang out with if you’re not trying to get something done. Irritating to serious people. GIRL – looks 15-20, but must be 18 or older by January since this part requires nudity. Soulful, distant, quietly playful, this character discovers herself during her brief marriage. BLIND GIRL – looks 15-20, but must be 18 or older by January since this part requires nudity. The blind girl rarely speaks but brims with constantly shifting emotions, and can dissolve into tears without warning. During the course of the story this character moves from being dismissed and underestimated, to being an object of fascination and finally, to being a source of dread and suspicion for other characters. Her characterization must encompass all these possibilities while remaining consistent and complex. YOUNG GUY - 20-25 yo. Although at first arrogant and impatient, this character develops genuine feelings of responsibility and concern through a position of authority. In the last part of the story he is terrorized and must be able to portray intense fear. Nudity will be required. PRISSY BEAUROCRAT - m., 30-45 yo. He takes the rules pretty seriously, but then undergoes a change when his concentration is addled and he attains light-heartedness. WOMAN - 30s-40s. An emotionally accessible, nervy lady who has lost her young sons and finds herself lost, angry and exhausted. We want criers! BOY – between 12 and 15 years old. Overconfident, precocious, this elfish character exists in the twilight between childhood and adulthood and is often wiser and more penetrating than his elders. GUY ON A HORSE – requires horse riding, nastiness. 30 – 50 yo. BIG STRONG GUY – 30–50 yo. Muscled, quiet, kind, very dry sense of humor. WOMAN - 40s. Cheerful, sympathetic mother to one of the main characters. CHILDREN - A variety of parts available for under 13's, one scene each. We will only audition using monologues and not cold readings from the script. OTHER PEOPLE – We require people of every age, including children, for small speaking and non-speaking parts. Please prepare an audition piece although we will not go through a cold reading with you.

In order to avoid having to wait for an undetermined length of time, sign up for a one-hour slot by sending an email with your preferred hour to dohill@oaklandcc.edu, leaving a phone message (248.522-3636), or signing up on the theatre’s bulletin board across from the studio café. Auditions will be composed of readings from the script. See description of playlets below. You can find this script in most bookstores and libraries. If you like, you can bring in a scene partner and audition with one of the scenes of your choice. Otherwise, a reading and an audition partner will be chosen for you. In addition, if you have a comic monologue that you would like to show, mention it at the auditions, and that will be seen prior to being assigned a reading from the script. About the Show: It takes special skill to translate the oddball sensibility of Gary Larson's "The Far Side" cartoons into live performance, but that's exactly the feel of David Ives' All in the Timing. This lively and clever series of playlets is at once enchanting and perplexing, incisively intelligent and side-splittingly funny. Time Magazine declared it "Theatre that aerobicizes the brain and tickles the heart." The Plays: Sure Thing is a classic of contemporary comedy: two people meet in a cafe and find their way through a conversational minefield as a bell interrupts their false starts, gaffes and faux pas on the way to falling in love. (Cast: Bill and Betty, both in their late 20’s) Words, Words, Words recalls the philosophical adage that three monkeys typing into infinity will sooner or later produce Hamlet, and asks: what would the monkeys talk about at their typewriters? (Cast: Swift, Kafka and Miltion, 2M and 1F, any age--they're monkeys) The Universal Language brings together Dawn, a young woman with a stutter, and Don, the creator and teacher of Unamunda, a wild comic language. Their lesson sends them off into a dazzling display of hilarious verbal pyrotechnics - and, of course, true love. (Cast: Don—30’s or older, Dawn—20’s, Young Man—one-liner at end of scene.) Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread is a parodic musical vignette in trademark Glassian style, with the celebrated composer having a moment of existential crisis in a bakery. (Cast: 2 Males, 2 Females any age but all need a strong sense of rhythm) The Philadelphia presents a young man in a restaurant who has fallen into a "Philadelphia", a Twilight Zone-like state in which he cannot get anything he asks for. His only way out is to ask for the opposite of what he wants. (Cast: Al--California cool, 20's or older, Mark--20's or 30's, Waitress--weary, as you will) Variations on the Death of Trotsky shows the Russian revolutionary on the day of his demise, desperately trying to cope with the mountain-climber's axe he's discovered in his head. (Cast: Trotsky, Mrs. Trotsky--grandmotherly and sweet, Ramon--young and handsome) Community members welcome. You do not have to be a student to participate.

Auditions for Core Cast (3 men, 3 women). Auditions will include an actor-selected song and director-selected readings. We want to design a show that highlights the high points of our 75 year performance history. To do that, we need to have a capable Core Cast who is able to perform in a variety of scenes and songs, in a variety of styles. 

We wanted to write a script featuring the best scenes/songs from our history and, where possible, have the original performers  reprise their roles.  However we knew that it would be impossible to find all of the original performers, and that made it impossible to write a script.  Our answer was the Core Cast.  The Core Cast will be an ensemble that we will utilize to fill all parts not being played by the original performers.  In point of fact the Core Cast will probably perform most of the show, and then we will have the original performers appear as a guest stars.  However, the Core Cast needs to go into this project knowing that it's fluid and that they may be asked to step down to make room for an original performer reprising their role.  This could happen at any time, so the Core Cast needs to be flexible about it.  The benefit of this plan, of course, is that the Core Cast also gets to appear on stage in great roles with some of the living legends of our theatre.  Core Cast would also participate in group numbers, and most of the scenes representing 1929-1950. 5 weeks of moderate rehearsals during April, 2004. Tech rehearsals in May, 2004

Dance: You will be taught a short dance routine. Dress comfortably and bring shoes you can dance in. Acting: You may be asked to read a poem or read songs as dialogue Character Breakdown: Looking to cast strong singers/actors who move well. These are the character's ages, not the ages of the actors. Gordon Schwinn: Tenor /Mid-thirties. The musical's hero. A neurotic, frustrated, struggling composer. He hates his job and boss. When Gordon is faced with his severe illness he realizes all the things he regrets about his life. He will miss those close to him should he die, but his biggest fear is that he may not live to complete his work, to honor his talent, and write all the songs that are in his heart. Mimi Schwinn: Mezzo-Alto/ Fifties plus. Gordon's mother. She is outspoken, sophisticated, overbearing, and oh yes a Jewish mother. She knows how to put up a good front when faced with bad news, however she can only take so much until she snaps, and falls apart and finally breaks down. Roger Delli-Bovi: Lyric Tenor /Late twenties-early forties. Gordon¹s lover. Very lay back, romantic, passionate. He loves Gordon very much and takes his idiosyncrasies with a grain of salt. Roger's passion is sailing and sometimes he uses it as an escape from reality. Rhoda: Mezzo/Late thirties-early forties. Gordon's best friend, confidant, advisor and shoulder to cry on, but a bit neurotic herself. Although she seems to have it all together, she falls to pieces when faced with Gordon's illness. Mr. Bungee: Baritone/ Thirties-Fifties. The dancing, singing frog of the idiotic children's television show Gordon composes for. He's hyper, conceited, obnoxious and a loud mouth tyrant. Lisa: Mezzo with very strong belt/twenties-forties. A homeless lady. She could care less whether you like her or treat her nice; all she wants is your change. She makes many commentaries about the world around her and tells it like it is. She gives therapy for free. Richard: Baritone/thirties-fifties. The nice nurse, overweight and hates his job. He is empathetic, caring and a good listener. Nancy/Waitress: Soprano/Twenties. The thin nurse and is not so nice. She is all business when it comes to her job and her bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired. She doubles as the overly, perky waitress in the first scene. Dr. Jafar Berensteiner: Baritone/Thirties-Fifties. He is Gordon's neurologist. He's no nonsense and a matter of fact man. He doesn't sugar coat anything and his people skills needs some fine-tuning. The Minister: Tenor/Twenties-Forties. The Hospital Chaplin. He is a compassionate, understanding and good guy. He welcomes all into the Christian faith whether you are Jewish or not. Audition Workshop: Saturday, May 8 at 1:00 PM, at the Theatre, this not mandatory, but will help in learning about the show, the production concept and the music for Call Backs.

Looking for two women of any age, must be/look at least 20 but older is preferred, and must both be aproximatly the same age The film is based on Alice Gerstenberg’s Overtones, a comedic thought provoking play about two seemingly happy, and civilized, women and their not so happy inner selves. The extent of the changes to the script will be based on a number of factors including the age, accent, and ethnicity of those cast so although the concept will be the same as that of the play some of the specifics have not yet been decided and the cast will have the opportunity to add their input to this part of the process.

Pig by Tammy Ryan Pig is not a night-on-the-town show. It's a gut-wrenching, teeth-clenching drama about a family no politician will want to hold up as an example of family values. The setting is in one of those New York City working class sections in Queens that have come to symbolize urban rednecks living in cramped aluminum sided houses with handkerchief-sized lawns. The time is Labor Day 1990, four months before the Gulf War, with the return of a long-absent son the catalyst for airing the always simmering but never discussed tensions. Instead of having a dark secret buried in the backyard, the son comes to the annual Robinson family barbecue to bury his own secret, a mysterious pig in a black garbage bag. We are looking for 2 women for the roles below: Jeanann Robinson (age 15) the youngest daughter. Wants to be a pilot. Bernice O’Connor (age 35-45) Irene’s sister. Married to George. Sort of a “Avon Lady” type.

DAVE – playing age late 20s. Dave is a reticent salesman enduring a pretty bad day. This is the leading role but has the fewest lines, so I need someone who can carry the weight of the story without overdoing the reliance on facial expression only.

ACTOR – male, playing age mid-30s to mid-50s. At first we meet the actor playing the role of a very angry, intense man. Then he steps out of character to reveal himself as a considerate, slightly timid professional actor.

DIRECTOR – male or female, playing age mid-30s to mid-50s. Loud, hurried, slightly unthinking. Priority is to move the show along rather than think it out.

GIRL – playing age late teens. No lines. We see her walk past in her bra. Not that great a part acting wise, but an important part of the film nevertheless because she stresses out the main character. We’ll try to make it fun.

WOMAN – playing age mid-40s to late 50s. Polite but dumbfounded customer, who becomes increasingly stressed and brittle as a vacuum salesman destroys her carpet. Must be ok with smoking. Patricia Clarkson, where are you?

EXTRAS – you saints who can give up a morning or an afternoon to mill around in the background and eat donuts and sandwiches. You make everything so much more believable. Everyone who contacts me about extra-ing is automatically enlisted for the evening of February 22nd.

David Auburn has written a wonderfully compassionate and knowing play about a young woman, Catherine who, on the death of her father, must sort out and deal with a number of long denied feelings and fears. Catherine’s father; Robert, was a brilliant mathematician who crossed the thin line from genius to insanity several years earlier, leaving Catherine as his sole care giver for all her adult life. Now she must adjust not only to his death, but come to grips with her fear that his mathematical genius, which she has inherited, comes with a dreadful price, that she may be fated to the same mental degeneration and insanity as her father.

The cast includes two women in their 20's or 30's, one man in his 20's or 30's and one man in his 40's or 50's.

This film focuses on an ensemble cast in their mid-20's to mid-30's. For one reason or another, they are all in the dating scene. Some have never left and are very comfortable with this situation, but others are coming into it after a long relationship. The comedy in this film highlights that this is very different for people in their 30's than for people in their 20's and also contrasts the differences between how men and women approach this situation. On a deeper level, these people are all discovering something about themselves through this process.

URGENT NEED - Unfortunately, one of our actors had to drop out due to an unavoidable conflict, so we have an urgent need to fill one of our main ensemble roles:

Lindy - mid 20's, attractive, tom-boyish but also very girl-next-door. She is free-spirited, nurturing, fun-loving. She is the one person in the film that really knows who she is and doesn't go through a major change during the course of the film. However, she also tends to play the counselor to her friends and helps them pick up the pieces when they are struggling with their own situations.

We will be holding auditions on the Eastern Michigan campus at McKenny Hall, BY APPOINTMENT. Auditions will be held the evenings of Monday, 9/20, and Tuesday, 9/30.

We begin shooting this Sunday (10/5), hence the urgency in casting. If you are interested in auditioning and can be available most Sundays and Wednesdays during the months of October and November, please submit your headshot (or other photo) and resume to tonuab@yahoo.com.

We have a very specific look in mind for Lindy, so we won't schedule an audition until we have received a headshot.

This film focuses on an ensemble cast in their mid-20's to mid-30's. On the surface, the story focues on their success, or lack thereof, in dating; but it is also about each of them discovering themselves.

Auditions can be arranged by contacting the producers.

Shooting will begin at the beginning of Octoberand run approximately through the end of November. Please contact the producers for more details.

All of the major roles have been cast, but we are still seeking a few smaller roles:

Michael: Early to mid 30's; nice guy. Fairly attractive, non-threatening, has "nice" written all over him. One look at this guy and you KNOW he's a nice guy.

Boss: Female, mid 40's; sexually aggressive boss of two of the main characters. Somewhat attractive, fit, dresses seductively. Oozes sexual confidence.

Girl: Early 20's (18 or older); attractive and fit; barely looks old enough to get into a bar.

Troy: Early to mid-30's; also a player; also attractive; a little too slick.

CastingInfo

Community members as well as students are welcome. Also seeking volunteers to work on the show, and we welcome all levels of experience in set construction, costumes, properties and acting. CAST LIST: Marion and Walter Hollander--very large comic roles to play in their fifties; Axel Magee, a pleasant,somewhat bumbling young man who takes over for his Ambassador father but everything always goes wrong for him--very large role to play in twenties; Susan Hollander,their pretty and off-beat daughter--large role to play in her twenties; Father Drobney, a bit of an eccentric who has been hiding in the embassey for 6 yrs--large role to play 30's to 60's; and several medium sized and smaller roles including Kilroy, a "punctilious rat;" the Sultan of Bashir; Krojack, the name says it all; the Ambassador; a flighty chef, etc. Written by Woody Allen in his earlier writing years, there's basically a laugh every third line...at least. A movie was made in the 60's starring Walter Matthau and Estelle Parsons. The remake was a made-for-TV movie starring Woody Allen himself, Julie Kavner and Michael J. Fox--perhaps not a great movie, but you get an idea of the plot. Email Dr. Diane Hill for more information and to sign up for an hour audition slot on either Mon. 9/22 or Tues. 9/23.

Habra Productions, LLC is currently accepting applications to star in an upcoming short film, "Assumed".

Written by Award Winning Entrepreneur, Jacques Habra, "Assumed" asks and answers the difficult questions surrounding losing one's virginity.

While the subject matter compares to such contemporary classics as Porky's and American Pie, "Assumed" takes an intellectual approach to the emotions before during and after this once in a lifetime physical and mental experience.

Nudity is NOT required. A sense of humor is.

Available roles are as follows:

Alex K. (lead male) 16 Year Old typical male. Tremendously more intelligent and capable than most his age. Alex looks at life challenges and problems like math equations-- he determines the variables, applies a formula, and produces an answer. Alex is an innocent, anxious young man who simply wants to lose his virginity.

Tim (supporting male) 16 Year male who equates success in life with sexual achievement. Very intelligent, but often crude in delivery and style. Tim is also a virgin and knows how to change that. An existential character with a Machivellian approach to life. A great friend to Alex; and while he would never admit it, a great friend to Mike.

Mike (supporting male) Alex's best friend. Different than Alex and Tim as Mike considers the morality of sex, the rules written and unwritten, the consequences. One could call Mike the voice of reason, but it is a much deeper voice than just reason, it is a voice demanding that we overcome physical tendencies in the spirit of evolution. Mike is complex from start to finish and never holds back from vocalizing caution and concern. A virgin of course.

Madeline (supporting female) A 16 year old girl with the security and confidence of a 30 year old. Madeline suprises even herself at times as she goes after what she wants. It isn't completely clear. But, Madeline makes the story come together as she flows with any manipulation sent her way. Could she be manipulating the situation herself? She is looking for the right guy, the right situation, for her first time.

Joseph K. (supporting male) Alex's father. A man of experience who loves life and his wife through and through. The respect Joseph has for his wife makes it difficult for Alex to simply 'get laid'. Joseph says more with one glance than all his lines combined.

Marianne K. (supporting female) A loving mother and wife. She loves her only son and sees a 2 year old whenever he's around. She can't even concieve of him as an adult, and if she could, she wouldn't want to. Is any girl good enough for Alex?

Julian (supporting male, African American) College student with all his ducks in a row. The only non-virgin who discusses sex with Alex. While others theorize, Julian knows and he keeps it simple and to the point. Julian's compassion and thoughtfulness is genuine in every dialogue. He cares for his friend Alex and would do or give anything to help.

Extras include:

* 15 - 22 year old high school and college students who represent today's affected youth. * Madeline's parents who make a short appearance. * A test moderator (in their 20s)

We have compiled our crew for this project, but are welcoming assistance and interest in the following areas:

* Director of Photography * Assistant Director * Assistant Producer * Cinematographer * Editing Specialist

This film will shoot in late June 2003 in and around Ann Arbor over a 12 day period. Meals and on-site expenses are comped.

Sorry, only screen credit compensation.

This film will be marketed to 4 independent film festivals Nationally as well as featured on-line at several undisclosed movie database sites.

Auditions will be held for what is arguably one of the greatest comedies in the English language on Monday and Tuesday, April 14th and 15th at 7:30 p.m., registration starts at 7:00 p.m. Callbacks are Thursday, April 17th. Performances dates are June 5-8 at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theater. There are roles for 5-8 men and 3-4 women ages 16-80. The auditions will consist of readings from the script and a credible British accent is required.

This classic comedy of manners is set in 1895 England and revolves around “manufactured” mistaken identity. We will be doing the rarely performed 4-act version of the script. Hopefully, it will be the same script performed up at Stratford in 2000. I will be reading both women and men for the role of Lady Brancaster (aka Bracknell). The memorable characters are as follows:

John Worthing (25-45) a gentleman who was adopted after being found in a handbag as a baby. He is in love with Gwendolen and is guardian to Cecily. He is Jack in the country and Ernest in town.

Algernon Montford (25-45) a gentleman who likes to eat. He is Lady Brancaster’s nephew and Gwendolen’s cousin.

Rev. Canon Chasuble (40-80) Rector of Woolton. He has a soft spot for Miss Prism.

Mr. Gribsby (30-80) a solicitor from London. A one scene role. He comes seeking payment.

Merriman/Lane/Moulton (25-80) servants in the households of the piece. Lane has a particularly wonderful scene. May be played by one actor.

Lady Brancaster (Bracknell) (40-80) a dominating figure. She is Gwendolen’s mother and Algy’s aunt. When I first saw the play, William Hutt played the role and I will read men for the role as well as women.

Gwendolen Fairfax (20-40) fancies herself a modern woman. In love with Jack.

Cecily Cardew (16-30) a young romantic with her feet on the ground. Ward to Jack. Fantasizes about her guardian’s mysterious brother Ernest.

Miss Prism (40-80) a closet romantic. Governess to Cecily. Has a soft spot for Rev. Chasuble.

The classic Agatha Christie whodunit that has been playing continuously in London since November 25, 1952 -- for fully 50 years! Eight classic characters (5m, 3w) with something to hide are isolated by a blizzard. Each is a potential suspect...and a potential victim. Stunning revelations and clever misdirections eventually reveal the real killer to be...

You didn't think I was going to give it away, did you?

Characters: Mollie Ralston, tall pretty woman with an ingenious air (20s or early 30s); Giles Ralston, rather arrogant but attractive young man (20s or early 30s); Christopher Wren, a rather wild-looking, neurotic young man (20s or 30s); Mrs. Boyle, a large, imposing woman in a very bad temper (50s or older); Major Metcalf, a middle-aged, square-shouldered man of military manner and bearing (40s or older); Miss Casewell, a young woman of a 'manly type' (20s or 30s); Mr. Paravicini, foreign and dark and elderly (not necessarily too elderly - 40s and older); Detective Sergeant Trotter, a cheerful, commonplace young man with a slight cockney accent (20s or 30s).

In addition to Sgt. Trotter's cockney, I hope to use a variety of appropriate dialects. Fear not, though; accommodations can be made for the dialect impaired. Show will be done appropriate to the period in which it was originally written (late 1940s). Producer for this show is Clara Smith. Chelsea Area Players is a community theater group based in Chelsea Michigan that has been producing quality theater since 1972, or since the time "The Mousetrap" had only been running for 20 years. Evening shows include dinner that will be served soon after the doors open at 6:30 p.m. Sunday matinee includes dessert, served promptly after the doors open at 1:00 p.m. Clanking glasses and silverware will be cleared before the performance, to avoid obscuring important dialogue or irritating the actors.

Very large cast is needed. Auditioners should bring a prepared musical theatre song (16 measures or 1 verse) and wear shoes/clothes to move in.

Auditions will be 5/6 through 5/9, call backs if needed 5/10. Auditions are in five-minute timeslots, sign up at the mass meeting or call after 5/5 for times. Audition location TBD.

Can a guy get married without knowing it, and what then becomes of the two other girls he's engaged to? Set in Victorian England, 10 characters: Cheviot Hill, 20-30ish, male, upper middle class; Mr. Belvawney, 20-30ish, male, upper middle class; Miss Treherne, 20-30ish, female, upper middle class; Minnie Symperson, 20-30ish, female, upper middle class; Mr. Symperson, (Minnie's father), male, upper middle class; Angus Mcalister, 20-30ish, male, Scottish peasant lad (with Scottish accent); Maggie Macfarlane, 20-30ish, female, Scottish peasant lassie (with Scottish accent); Mrs. Macfarlane, (Maggie's mother), female, Scottish peasant widow (with Scottish accent), Major McGillicuddy, adult, male, English Military type; Parker, adult, female, Minnie's chamber maid. Audition dialog texts available on the UMGASS website at www.umgass.org, at auditions, and at the mass meeting. Semi-prepared reading (of the scenes provided) - doesn't need to be memorized - we'll have copies in the audition. Please look over a Scottish character (Angus, Maggie, or Mrs. Macfarlane) unless you wouldn't take the role if offered, so that we can judge your ability to try on a Scottish accent.  Please be prepared to list all your schedule conflicts on your audition form.

A note on accents:  I need the Scottish characters to sound Scottish but be understood.  This is tricky, but please give it a shot.  I suggest following the pronunciations written out by Gilbert (to get the right sort of vowel color and placement), and then shading them back to the English words.  Fiona Richie (from NPR's Thistle and Shamrock), Sean Connery and Mike Meyers' Shrek are good examples if you need to get it in your ear. The rest of the characters should have mild English accents, or at least "singing" diction rather than a broad Mid-Western accent.  Don't let the accents keep you from auditioning; they don't have to be perfect, and I am willing to coach them for the right actors.


CastingInfo

Please call to set up an appointment time. Don't forget to bring a headshot & resume to the audition.

AUDITIONS OPEN TO ALL*!!! Large cast with roles for many ages.

Children are welcome! Children under 14 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian; ages 14-17 we recommend a parent or guardian attend, but it's not absolutely required.

Of all the scores he created, CAROUSEL was Rodgers' favorite. Set in a Maine coastal village toward the end of the 19th century, the swaggering, carefree carnival barker Billy Bigelow captivates and marries naive millworker Julie Jordan. Billy loses his job just as he learns that Julie is pregnant. Desperately intent upon providing a decent life for his family, he is coerced into being an accomplice to a robbery. Caught in the act and facing the certainty of prison, he takes his own life and is sent "up there". Billy is allowed to return to earth for one day and time being what it is "up there", fifteen years have passed. He now encounters the teenage daughter he never knew. She is a lovely, friendless child, her father's reputation as a thief and bully having haunted her throughout her young life. How Billy gives both his child and her mother a sense of hope and dignity is a dramatic testimony to the power of love. Includes the musical highlights "The Carousel Waltz," "If I Loved You," "June Is Bustin' Out All Over" and "You'll Never Walk Alone".

*Again, the auditions are open to all, however, casting preference will be given to continuing WCC students. Those cast must enroll in a one credit musical theatre course at WCC based on their involvement in the show. Approx. cost $70. Four Comp. tickets will be given to each cast member. C:O)

ShowTitle: The Lucky Spot

CastingInfo

This relatively unknown Beth Henley play is set in an Old Victorian/Plantation Home in Pigeon, Louisiana which is located about 60 miles west of New Orleans. The time is Christmas Eve 1934. Reed Hooker has won the place in a card game and intends to open a dance hall in this remote locale. Along for the ride are Reed's trusty, but slow-witted handyman Turnip and Cassidy Smith, a teenage girl that Reed had previously won in a card game. The group's plans to open the Lucky Spot Dance Hall are threatened when the pregnant Cassidy invites Reed's estranged wife for Christmas in hopes that Reed will ask her for a divorce. Sue Jack Reed is available for Christmas because she has just been released from Angola prison after serving a three year sentance for throwing a woman she finds in bed with Reed over a balcony. A former taxi-dancer and card player, the mere possibility that Sue Jack will show up at the Lucky Spot scares the dancers Reed has hired back to New Orleans. They are all too aware of Sue Jack's reputation as a mean and jealous drunk. Into the fray appears Whit Carmichael, the brother of the woman Sue Jack attacked, with claims on the ownership of the Lucky Spot. Is he bent on revenge? Will The Lucky Spot open on time? The action is fast with moments of true tenderness in this Henley dramady populated with the quirky and memorable characters for which she is known.

Reed Hooker (35-55)- charming card sharp and owner of The Lucky Spot. Sue Jack Hooker (30-45) - estranged wife of Reed. Has changed since she's been in prison. Cassidy Smith (should pass for 15-18)- waif won by Reed in a card game, pregnant. Thinks she's in love with Reed. Turnip Moss (18-25)- slow-witted side kick of Reed's. In love with Cassidy. Lacey Rollins (30-50) - has been working as a "taxi dancer" for a long time. Overly perky. Falls down a lot. Whit Carmichael (30-60) - villian of the piece. Must not be a caricature. A difficult role. Sam (55-75) - the first patron of the Lucky Spot. Has recently lost his wife. Auditions will consist of readings from the script. Familiarity with the script is suggested.

The play offers roles for anywhere from eight to twelve women. Depending on the results of auditions, some roles may be double cast. In addition to the roles mentioned in the play itself, members of the cast will recite selections from Lorca's poetry before each act and at the end of the play. There will be one non-speaking male role, which will be Pepe el Romano, who will appear in silhouette or through scrim at certain moments in the production. His role does not appear in the published texts.

The ages of the characters should be understood in terms of their relationships, not in absolute chronological age. Adela, the youngest, is just old enough to marry. Her sister Martirio is closest to her age, next comes Amelia, then Magdalena, then Angustias. Angustias is definitely old enough to be considered an old maid. Their mother, Bernarda, is old enough to have five adult daughters. Maria Josefa, in turn, is old enough to be the mother of Bernarda.

There are two servants in the house: the maid, who has no name of her own, and La Poncia, Bernarda's housekeeper. A friend of Bernarda's, Prudencia, visits the family in the second act.

Casting preference will be given to WCC students. Non-students may audition. All members of the cast will be required to register for a particular one-credit course at WCC and to pay the required fees.

5 Men & 3 Women In the middle of a howling snowstorm, a bus pulls up for a night at a cheerful roadside diner where Cherie (played by Marilyn Monroe in the movie), a nightclub chanteuse who's being pursued by a twenty-one year old cowboy with the romantic methods of a headstrong bull and his sidekick - a guitar playing cowboy, look for respite from the storm. As a counterpoint to the main romance, the proprietor of the cafe and the bus driver at last find time to develop a friendship of their own; a middle aged scholar comes to terms with himself; the sheriff helps keep the peace and a young girl who works in the cafe also gets her first taste of romance.

Children should report to the lobby of Meadow Brook Theatre on the campus of Oakland University. They will be auditioning on the stage reading from the script in groups.

If anyone is not available for "Carol" due to holidays or other commitments but is interested in "Cat," they should still come to this audition day but state their "Carol" conflict. Rehearsals begin Tuesday, 2/20; performances begin Wednesday, 3/26 and end Sunday, 4/14. Rehearsals are everyday except Monday and perfromances are everyday except Monday & Tuesday.

Anyone aged 16 and up. Tilt is a comedy improv group that will have its debut performance on June 16th. The auditions will split the group into a "performance" level and a "workshop" level; the workshop group will be taught by members of the performance group, and they generally will perform brief opening sets. No one who wants to perform will be refused. The performance format is designed to allow an eclectic mix of improv styles. The "artistic director" (me, Steve) performed ComedySportz in high school, training with CSz originator Dick Chudnow. Since then I've studied the Lecoq style of improv with Jane Nichols (then at the Harvard Intitute / ART, now at the Actors Center in New York) and with local group Walk and Squawk. I've also studied with Keith Johnstone in Calgary for some time, and my own style is highly influenced by him.
