AUDITIONS for ALMOST, MAINE – 11/17 & 11/18 at 7pm

Almost Maine
by John Cariani
Directed by Kit Colbourn
Audition Date: Sunday November 17 & Monday November 18 at 7pm

It’s midwinter in the not-really-organized town of Almost, Maine, and the average temperature is minus 3° but we find warmth in the cold, under the glow of the northern lights. This very human play takes a look at love, connection, and disconnection in a genuine, funny, and sometimes awkward way. And isn’t that just like love in all its forms?

 

Audition Info:

A short contemporary monologue is encouraged and will be heard, but not required.

Callbacks, if necessary, will take place on Monday the 18th. Everyone will be informed of results afterwards individually.

Please direct any questions to the director at kitcolbourn@gmail.com.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Fred Wolinsky
NOVEMBER 8, 9, 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, 2019

Tennessee Williams’ twentieth century masterpiece. On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gathers at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real—and which will win out?
