Auditions Announced for Award-Winning ‘Wolf Note’ SLT fundraiser features adult comedy by local playwright Director/playwright Don Redman is seeking to cast four males and two females in a special production of his original adult comedy, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia’s Wolf Note?”
Auditions are Tuesday, Feb. 7th and Wednesday, Feb 8th in the theatre lobby, beginning at 7 p.m. both evenings.
As middle-aged couple Virginia and David ready for the arrival of their friends for their regularly scheduled bridge game, it becomes increasingly obvious that everything is far from normal. Virginia’s life and marriage lack any trace of passion, and she’s on the verge of coming undone. Unfortunately, David hasn’t a clue that anything is wrong, and is concerned solely with the prospect of missing a night of cards. It all comes to a head when Virginia learns that her former college paramour is on his deathbed. With a wink and a nod to playwrights Edward Albee (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) and D.L. Coburn (The Gin Game), Don Redman’s adult comedy details a wild and witty night through middle-age malaise, angst and romance.
Performance dates are March 24, 25, 26, 31 and April 1. March 26, is a 2 p.m. matinee, all other performances begin at 8 p.m..
Cast of Characters (ages are specific to the character, not the actor):
ARTHUR – upper 40s
SUSAN – upper 30s
MARTY – late 20s
Digital copies of “Wolf Note” scripts in pdf format are available upon request, by emailing the producer at firstname.lastname@example.org . Females auditioning for the role of Ginny are strongly encouraged to read the script in advance.
Auditions will include cold readings from the script, but also come prepared to tell two jokes: one short (e.g How do you get holy water? Boil the hell out of it) and one long (beaucoup of which are available on the Internet).
Tentative rehearsal calendars will be distributed at auditions, so please come prepared with your conflicts. As usual for our busy, busy little theatre, there are a lot of demands for rehearsal times and spaces, so our schedule will have to be flexible and may sometimes be held elsewhere other than the theatre.
