About the show

Playwright/director Thomas has just finished a day of auditions for his adaptation of the 19th century erotic novel about masochism, Venus in Furs. He’s unimpressed and bitter about what he sees as the ineptitude and unprofessionalism of the women who auditioned for the lead, Vanda von Dunayev, when one more actress shows up: the appropriately named Vanda Jordan. She’s late, she has no appointment (although she insists she did), she has a sketchy resumé and a huge bag of props – in short, she’s everything Thomas loathes.

But in spite of his attempts to get rid of her, she wheedles an audition out of him, and turns out to be surprisingly perfect in the role of the elegant, cruel Vanda. Too perfect it seems, for as they work through the script, Thomas finds himself in a struggle with this enigmatic woman to decide who will be ultimately be dominant and who submissive.

The show will be performed in the Gaddy-Goodwin Teaching Theatre. You can see more information about the show and order tickets from our Venus in Fur show page.

 

About the roles

Thomas Novachek (Male, 30′s-40′s) is a talented and established playwright who’s directing his first play. While not an actor per se, since there’s no one else there, he’ll read the part of the masochist, Kushemski, opposite Vanda. And while he denies it vigorously, is there some truth to Vanda’s observation that there’s a lot of Kushemski in Thomas?

Vanda Jordan (Female, 20′s-40′s) is a hopeful actress with little experience. She’s apparently crude and unprofessional, but can be very persuasive and seductive when necessary, and ultimately turns out not to be who she says she is. As Vanda von Dunayev, she’s elegant, intelligent, and refined – the complete opposite of her personality as the actress. She can flip between these two roles instantly. Both sides of her personality ooze a natural sexuality that can be called on at will. Some comfort and familiarity with European dialects will be an advantage.

 

About the production team

Rod Rich of Actors Comedy Lab will direct.

 

About the auditions

Auditions will consist of readings from the script. Sides will be available online starting the week before auditions.

About the show

We are excited to present RLT’s Cinderella in its 31st anniversary production. Cinderella is based on the fairy tale by Charles Perrault. Adaptation and lyrics by Jim Eiler. Music by Jim Eiler and Jeanne Bargy with addtional music and lyrics by Haskell Fitz-Simons and Suanne Strickland, and additional dialogue by a generation of actors and artists!

You can see more information about the show and order tickets from our Cinderella show page.

 

About the roles

The characters in Cinderella are in line with the traditional fairy tale, but with some additional characters added, just for fun. Alumni from previous years are encouraged to audition. But new faces are also welcome – we always love to introduce people to how much fun this show can be! All roles are open, so come on out.

CINDERELLA (Female Actress/Singer 16-25) is a smart and interesting young woman who loves to read, loves to dance, adores art and music, and longs to see the world. Note: this part has traditionally been performed in a fairly classical soprano, but this year we’d prefer a more contemporary pop-music or broadway voice.

PRINCE CHARMING (Male Actor/Singer 18-30) is a smart and handsome young man who is lonely, and while he longs to find that “certain someone” to cherish and to share his royal life with him, he’s not terribly happy about having to find her under a deadline.

KING DARLING III (Male Actor/Singer 30-60) He may “rule his land with gentle hand”, but he’s determined that his recalcitrant son WILL marry by his 21st birthday, according to the law. Looking for actor who can perform a Latin-style musical number with comic aplomb.

STEP MAMA (Female Actress/Singer 30-50) just adores her two lovely daughters, but Cinderella? Not so much. She considers herself to be beautiful, refined, and cultured. Not so much. We are looking for an actress with comedy chops, and a lot of attitude!

THE STEP SISTERS, HENRIETTA AND GERTRUDE (Male singers, 20-??) These two scene-stealers have delighted audiences for 30 years, and we don’t expect this year to be any different! Requires two men capable of creating characters with a broad comic style, including some physical comedy. There are minor differences between the two young ladies: HENRIETTA is the oldest and “wisest”, whereas GERTRUDE is the “prettier” and more intensely clueless of the two.

FAIRY GODMOTHER (Female Actress/Singer 30+) is a clever and energetic time-traveling fairy with a sparkly magic wand, mystical incantations, and a few unexpected tricks up her sleeve. She is sympathetic to Cinderella’s situation, and helps with magic and a little bit of motherly advice, in spite of the occasional setback.

HELPERS (male or female singers, teen-35 – prefer a pair who can move well) The Fairy Godmother’s two assistants who help out by screening potential aid recipients, run various tasks around the kingdom for her, and can disguise themselves as mortals when necessary. They also have several funny bits, and a good song-and-dance routine.

PAGES (Teen roles): Two pages assist King Darling and participate in the Latin-style musical number.

MICE/HORSES/TOWN KIDS: (Children roles) Can you sing like a little mouse? Can you sing like a confused horse? Can you sing like a regular kid? Can you trot around the stage like a horse – neighing and shaking your long silky mane?

ENSEMBLE: (Female and male Singers/Dancers). The ensemble will appear in an opening number as townsfolk in the town square, singing and swaying to a rousing Christmas folk tune and having fun. In the ballroom scene, they will appear as proper Lords and Ladies in beautiful outfits, performing traditional ballroom dances that are fun and easy to learn: Polonaise, Waltz, Minuet, and the ever-popular Sneeze Polka. (Hankies provided.)

 

About the production team

Rod and Nancy Rich of Actors Comedy Lab will be co-directors on this production. Julie Florin will be Music Director.

 

About the auditions

Those auditioning are asked to wear comfortable clothing which allows for freedom of movement and shoes suitable for dancing.

Auditions: Please prepare 16 bars of an audition song that showcases your voice, and bring the sheet music in the correct key. An accompanist will be provided. The dance audition will be in the form of a simple and fun warm-up before singing auditions begin. You can learn to do a Polonaise step!

Callbacks are for speaking roles only. The ensemble will be cast based on singing and dancing audition, and will not be required at callbacks. Callbacks will consist of readings from the script. You may also be asked to vocalize or sing a portion of the music from the show.

Perusal copies of the working script will be available for a 48 hour checkout from the RLT business office. The office is located in the rear of our facility and is open from 10:00am-5:00pm, Monday thru Friday. Please call the RLT office at 919-821-4579 to check on availability.

BRYAN, the SCRIPT-WRITER/FATHER of the mysterious DEER GIRL; intellectual, calm, poetic. Insists on speaking with an unidentifiable accent from somewhere in Europe, which doesn’t fit the play, so he ends up having to do his part as a mime.

BELINDA, the ANIMAL-WRANGLER/one of the SISTERS; promotes peace, love, and animal rescue.

MANDY, in charge of POSTERS AND PUBLICITY/front end of CHEVY the HORSE; fun, sense of humor, good sport; constantly on her cell phone.

About the show

It’s Spring, 1906 in Ridgetop, South Carolina. Mirandy is very excited about the Annual Junior Cakewalk dance. The winner gets a triple-decker cake. Suddenly Brother Wind swoops in and makes a mess of things. That’s when Ma Dear tells Mirandy about the Legend of Brother Wind. “Whoever can catch Brother Wind can make him do their bidding.” Mirandy decides that she will catch Brother Wind and make him be her dance partner in the cakewalk. Then she will just have to win since “He can really kick up his heels and shake his tail feathers-the perfect dancer.”

Soon she learns what Grandmama Beasley said, “can’t nobody can put shackles on Brother Wind, chile. He be special, he be free. Through her journey to capture Brother Wind, Mirandy learns about freedom, friendship and kindness. This story blended with lively singing and toe tapping music is a joyful celebration of the rich African American cultural heritage.

Teen rivalry in a small Southern town sets the stage for this dramatic interpretation by Christopher Sergel of the novel by S. E. Hinton.
