Play On Auditions

Posted on

The Little Theatre of Bedford will be holding auditions for it’s next production the hilarious comedy Play On! by Rick Abbott and produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

Audition Dates: December 10 and 11
from 6-8 @ Little Theatre of Bedford

Play On! is a ‘play within a play’ story of a small theatre group trying to put on a murder mystery in spite of mishaps, malaprops, and maddening interference from the amateur author. Directed by Rachel Fishback, Play On! Normally, it’s in bad taste to openly laugh at such an unfortunate performance, but for Play On!, it’s highly encouraged!

Show Dates: March 1, 2, 3 and March 8, 9, 10 2019

Roles available for Actors and Actresses ages 16-75.

Characters
Aggie Manville – stage manager M/F (18-70)
Gerry Dunbar – director M/F (20-75)
Henry Benish – Actor M (30-55)
Polly Benish – Actress F (30-55)
Smitty – High schooler Actress F (16-18)
Saul Watson – Actor M (30-55)
Billy Carewe – Actor M (20-35)
Violet Imbry – Acteress F (20-35)
Louise – Sound tech M/F (18-70)

Directed By: Rachel Fishback

Once on this Island Auditions

Posted on Updated on

AUDITION ANNOUNCEMENT! Auditions for our first show of the year, the musical “Once On This Island,” will be held on July 24, 2018. To audition, you MUST complete the linked google form, as well as the doodle poll within the form that will allow you to sign up for a specific audition slot. If you are unable to make the 24th, please contact the director, Wendy Miller, at wrtruebl@iu.edu to set up an alternate audition time. All information needed to audition is contained in the Google form. The majority of parts available are for older teens (age 16+) and adults, though there is one role each for a young girl and boy, age 7-10.

“Once On This Island,” written by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, is based upon the novel “My Love, My Love” by Rosa Guy, and represents a tropical and tragic retelling of the story “The Little Mermaid.” The story takes place on an island, on which people are separated by class–the rich and the poor. Ti Moune, a peasant girl on the poor side of the island, saves the life of a rich boy, Daniel, who lives on the wealthy side of the island. The power of the love between Ti Moune and Daniel brings together people of different social classes.

NOTE: Once On This Island was written to be performed by a diverse cast, in which race (dark skin versus light skin) provided the tension between the two sides of the island, but its authors also provide alterations to the script to change the tension to poverty versus wealth, in the event of a non-diverse cast. People of all ethnic backgrounds are encouraged to audition, and we will use the authors’ script alterations in the event of a non-diverse cast.
