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)

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.

Auditions set for “Sleuth”

Posted on

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are unable to perform “Lend Me a Tenor” this season. We have instead decided to perform a show that has never been done before at Little Theater.
We will be holding auditions for “Sleuth” this coming Tuesday, August 1 at 7:00 pm. The show is a very small cast of 3 men, aged 21-60+, all with rather large roles. If interested, you can likely find the 1972 movie version with Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine.
We need to get the word out about these auditions so please like and share this with your friends!
Thanks, and we hope to see you there!

Auditions Announced for “The Curious Savage”

Posted on Updated on

Little Theatre of Bedford is pleased to announce auditions for its production of “The Curious Savage,” the final production of the 2015-16 season.  Auditions will be held at the theatre at 1704 Brian Lane Way on Monday and Tuesday March 7 and 8 at 7:00 p.m. The cast of eleven calls for 6 females and 5 males, aged 16 and older. Most parts are for adults aged 25-50, with a few roles that could be made slightly younger or older.  Those auditioning should need only attend one evening, according to the play’s director Josh Landers.

 

The play, set in the 1950s,  tells the story of the widowed Mrs. Ethel Savage, and her attempt to keep her deceased husband’s money from her greedy children. In doing so, she finds herself placed in a sanatorium where she meets a cast of characters who at first glance might seem crazy, but are eventually revealed to be the fools of good heart.

 

“The Curious Savage” will be presented at Bedford Little Theatre for five performances on May 6, 7, 13, 14, 15, 2016.  For more information you can email ltbboxoffice@gmail.com or call the ltb box office at 812-279-3009.
