Impatient with what she sees as Bertie’s spinelessness and unwillingness to settle down.

Gertrude Winklesworth-Bode
20s-30s. Agatha’s top pick for Bertie’s future wife. A strong woman within the social structure of the time. An intellect and self proclaimed “Molder” of men. Recognizes the potential of Bertie as husband material.

Thalian Association Community Theatre will hold auditions for “The Addams Family”

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015

thalianThe Thalian Association Community Theatre, the Official Community Theater of North Carolina, will hold auditions for the new macabre musical comedy THE ADDAMS FAMILY. Auditions will be held Monday, August 10 at 7pm and Tuesday, August 11 at 7pm at the Community Arts Center, 120 S. 2nd Street in downtown Wilmington. Please prepare a traditional Broadway song to sing a cappella and be prepared to dance (no sandals or flip flops). The production, directed by Mike Thompson and choreographed by Laura Primavera with music direction by Amanda Hunter, runs Sept. 24-27 & Oct. 1-4 at Thalian Hall.

Available roles:

That lovable family of creepy kooks is alive and well and living in their super-spooky mansion in Central Park. The Addams family, led by the elegantly gaunt and seemingly undead Morticia and her ever-devoted husband Gomez, is in turmoil. Their daughter Wednesday, now 18, finds herself falling in love—a sensation that is unsettling for both her and her family of endearing misfits. When the teen invites her new boyfriend, Lucas Beineke, over with his “normal” family to get better acquainted with the Addams household, comic chaos (including everything from an amorous giant squid to mixed-up potions to a scorching tango) ensues.

Established in 1788, Thalian Association Community Theatre is a non-profit, membership organization dedicated to enhancing the Cape Fear region through live community theatre and arts education.

About the show

Captain Jack Absolute is visiting the resort town of Bath to court rich heiress Lydia Languish. Although he’s almost as rich, he’s pretending to be an impoverished ensign named Beverley to fit Lydia’s notion of a romantic love affair, as gleaned from the trashy novels she reads.

Unknown to the lovers, however, her maid Lucy has sold them out to her aunt, Mrs. Malaprop, so Lydia is forbidden to leave the house, while Mrs. Malaprop hunts for more appropriate suitors than “Beverley” for a young heiress. Bob Acres, a clueless country gentleman, was one possibility, but Lydia can’t stand him, so Mrs. Malaprop arranges an engagement with the wealthy Sir Anthony Absolute for his son: Jack Absolute.

Not knowing that Jack and Beverley are the same person, Lydia refuses to meet her beloved Beverley’s rival, and when Sir Anthony springs the news of his impending betrothal on Jack (carelessly neglecting to mention the identity of the bride-to-be), Jack is equally reluctant to give up Lydia.

Throw in Jack’s neurotic friend Faulkland and his long-suffering fiancée Julia, a combative Irish duel enthusiast who’s also hot for Lydia, plus a swirl of mistakes, misunderstandings, and a duel where Jack is slated to fight as both himself and Beverley, and you have a comedy with timeless charm.

The show will be performed in the Gaddy-Goodwin Teaching Theatre.

For more information, see the The Rivals show page.

About the production

Rather than the classic late 1700’s period costumes and sets, we’ll take a more playful, deconstructed approach, with anachronistic props and a more conceptual approach to the art direction. We’ll use light English and Irish dialects in the performances.

About the roles

Jack Absolute (20’s-30’s): charming, debonair, and way too clever for his own good. He can be generous, witty and self-confident one minute, and crabby, humorless and combative when his plans go awry. He has a good time playing his two roles against each other – until everything starts to collapse, especially when Lydia figures out who “Beverley” really is.

Lydia Languish (20’s): Lydia likes to see herself as a beautiful, wan, afflicted heroine in a romantic novel, but this persona is more affected than real – she has a sharp temper when frustrated. She’s witty, articulate, and observant, and a good friend to Julia. But you do not want to piss her off.

Mrs. Malaprop (40’s-50’s): one of THE classic comic characters of all time. Mrs. M takes pride in her prodigious vocabulary, except she doesn’t seem to know what most of the words actually mean. She frequently uses a word that sounds somewhat like the word she means to say, resulting in utter nonsense. Example: “she’s as headstrong as an allegory on the banks of the Nile.” Mrs. Malaprop sees herself as articulate and clever. Alas, she is neither.

Sir Anthony Absolute (40’s-60’s): Jack’s father. Sir Anthony is an aristocrat who’s pretty sure that teaching women to read was a huge mistake. He’s emotionally volatile: quick-tempered and explosive when thwarted, but as warm in forgiveness as he is in rage. He just doesn’t understand why everybody can’t be as calm and reasonable as he is.

Faulkland (20’s-30’s): Jack’s friend is an insecure idealist whose ideas of love come from questionable sources. Faulkland is constantly fighting doubts whether his fiancée, Julia, truly loves him in the right way, and finds confirmation of his neurotic suspicions in trivial slights. For example, convinced that lovers parted should be ostentatiously and theatrically miserable (like him!), he’s outraged and crabby when Julia seems to have suffered insufficiently the few days they couldn’t see each other. Will he push Julia too far?

Julia Melville (20’s): Lucy’s best friend and confidante, as well as Faulkland’s long-suffering fiancée. She’s generous, warm, kind, and understanding, even of her emotional mess of a lover whom she can’t seem to rid of his inane doubts. Julia embodies the spirit of the romantic heroine far more than the others, in her perceptiveness, her generosity, her emotional honesty – and ultimately her strength.

Bob Acres (20’s-30’s): a clueless country “gentleman” who doesn’t have a lot of experience with big-city types. Whether he’s driving Faulkland nuts with well-meant assurances that Julia had a super good time without him, or enthusiastically embracing Lucius’ suggestion of a duel to the death with Beverley (the whole “death” thing takes a while to sink in), his puppyish eagerness and naiveté lead him to make decisions he regrets. Lydia sees him as a hick, and maybe he is, but he’s a good guy at heart. A great part for a character actor with comic chops! (Rural English accent)

Sir Lucius O’Trigger (40’s-60’s): a proud-if-impoverished Irish gentleman, who thinks he’s wooing Lydia with notes he passes through Lucy, who gives them to Mrs. Malaprop instead, leading Mrs. M to think she’s the one being wooed. While he’s proud enough to challenge Jack to a duel over Lydia, he’s not too proud to hit on Lucy when he thinks nobody’s watching. Sir Lucius isn’t a villain, he just has his own code of conduct, and accepts his eventual loss gracefully and with good humor. (Light Irish accent)

THE SERVANTS:

Lucy (20’s-30’s): a clever servant who pretends to be dumb to con all her employers and play each one against the other for cash. Like all the other smart characters in this play, she isn’t as smart as she thinks.

Fag (20’s-40’s): Jack’s servant. Fag can be condescending to other servants, whom he sees as his inferiors, and represents himself to Jack as diabolically clever – even though he has to lie about it. Like Lucy, he’s happy to lie to others, but unlike Lucy, he’s loyal to his employer.

David (played by the same actor who plays Lucy): Acres’ servant. David is absolutely and utterly devoted to Acres, but can be a pessimist and a worrywart. When he finds out about the duel Acres has committed himself to, David goes full-on drama queen about the probable consequences.

The other servants will be played by members of the cast.

About the Auditions

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

Hickory Community TheatreAuditions are open to everyone! Ethnic diversity is strongly encouraged,  and is part of the theatre’s vision.

HOW AUDITIONS WORK:

Auditionees will be reading from the script. Scripts may be checked out for 48 hours with a $10 refundable deposit. Come upstairs to the HCT office to pick one up. It is highly recommended that auditionees read the script before auditioning.

For musicals, prepare a song you feel confident in singing. Try to select a song that is the same style as the show for which you are auditioning. (Melodic songs like show tunes, church music, folk songs, etc. are better than jazzy pop songs.) Bring sheet music if possible; no recorded accompaniment.

Please dress in clothes you can move in.

Please, no flip-flops.

Please look carefully at the rehearsal schedule and performance dates. Being in a show at Hickory Community Theatre requires a great time commitment. If you will only take a larger or smaller role because of your own time concerns, or if you are auditioning for just the experience, WELCOME!–but please let the director know your intentions.

RugBugs Information

RugBug Theatre @ HCT is an opportunity for young people to perform for our youngest audiences. RugBug actors’ ages range from 6-17 years old. Actors rehearse, learn lines and blocking, wear costumes and perform on our RugBug stage. There is no cost to the actor. All actors must be at all performances. Auditions are open to everyone! Ethnic diversity is strongly encouraged, and is part of the theatre’s vision. No experience is necessary. The best way to prepare for auditions is to practice reading out loud from any book, speaking loudly and clearly. For auditions, actors will be reading from the script, and doing lots of improvisation (so wear clothes you can roll around in).

Actors need only attend one audition date. All actors must be AT LEAST at first grade reading level. Email pam@hickorytheatre.org for further information.

murder-mystery-logo-finalHiring Full/Part-Time Actors for work year round! Lots of Perks!

We currently have openings in our Charlotte Troupe for new MALE and FEMALE Talent!
Ages 18+ non-union work. 

YOU MUST BE LOCAL TO THE CHARLOTTE AREA TO QUALIFY

This is a fantastic opportunity that will provide the following:

Each of our actors has the opportunity to act in up to 300 shows per year, with no show minimum required. This means that they may participate in as few or as many shows as they desire, an excellent arrangement for actors with separate non-industry employment or those interested in taking on additional projects. The Murder Mystery Company also pays a base $75/per performance and pays via direct deposit. We also reimburse gas and pay for travel expenses. If you choose to travel to a non-local performance we will handle flights and lodging.

The Murder Mystery Company has been active in the national theater community for over ten years and is third in record ticket sales in the US. Our shows run year round with a multitude of fun themes changing periodically to give our repeat customers something new to look forward to.

Auditions will be held Tuesday, June 30th.

These are scheduled auditions. 

Please either respond to this post or submit your head shot and theatrical resume with the subject heading “Charlotte Auditions” to murdermysterylisa@gmail.com to be considered.

Twin City Stage announces auditions for “Is He Dead?”

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

twin city stageTwin City Stage will hold auditions for the first show of its 81st Season, Is He Dead?, at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 7 at the Arts Council Theatre, 610 Coliseum Drive, Winston-Salem.  No appointment is necessary.

In this madcap farce, a young Parisian painter realizes that only dead painters achieve fame and fortune.  With the help of his friends, he fakes his death and prospers, all while passing himself off as his own twin sister.  Now, all he has to do is find a way out of the dress, return to life, and marry the girl of his dreams.

Is He Dead? is a farce written by Mark Twain in 1898 and adapted by David Ives for its inaugural Broadway performance in 2007.  While the comedy’s main character, Jean François Millet, is a historical French painter, the situation is entirely fictionalized.  The Wall Street Journal called Is He Dead? “shriekingly funny.”

Joshua Waterstone will direct Is He Dead?.  There are roles available for 7-12 men (ages 20-80) and 4-6 women (ages 20-80).  Actors should be prepared for cold readings, although short (1-2 minute) prepared monologues will also be welcome.  If those auditioning play an instrument or sing, they should bring the instrument and come prepared to play a short song.

Is He Dead? performance dates will be September 18-20 & 24-27, 2015.  All performances will be held at the Arts Council Theatre.  For more information, please call Twin City Stage at (336) 748-0857 x209 or visit the website at www.twincitystage.org.
