Auditions for Leading Ladies at the Adobe Theater

The Adobe Theater
Ken Ludwig’s “LEADING LADIES”
Directed by Lewis Hauser

Cast Breakdown

FEMALE CHARACTERS:

Meg Snider: (Early 30’s) She’s vivacious, with enormous warmth and a great sense of humor. She also has the fresh, unstudied, beauty that most women would kill for. She knows there’s a big world outside of York, PA but she hasn’t seen much of it yet.

Audrey: (20’s) She is extremely sweet and good-natured. The typical “girl-next-door”, cute but approachable. Likes to roller skate.

Florence: (70’s) Very old, extremely crusty, and her eyesight is terrible. Always on the verge of death’s door, but keeping him at bay.

MALE CHARACTERS:

Leo Clark: (Early 40’s) (Accent: Standard British) Leading man type, good looking, easy with a smile(and the ladies!) Shakespearian trained, but working the Moose Lodge circuit to make ends meet.

Jack Gable:(Late 30’s to early 40’s) (Accent: Standard British) Jack is Leo’s best friend and partner. They’ve been working the Moose Lodge circuit for so long, he’s ready to pack it in and settle down.

Duncan Wooley: (50’s) Local minister and substantially older then Meg (they are engaged). He’s a good man at heart, but rather fussy, set in his ways, a bit scatterbrained, and lives in his own world.

Doc Myers: (50’s) Doc is a crusty, likeable curmudgeon; a country doctor who takes no gruff from anybody.

Butch Myers (20’s) Butch is a little slow on the uptake, but earnest and sincere, with a good heart. He played football in high school-pretty much his claim to fame. (Son of Doc, in love with Audrey).

The play takes place in and around York, PA. The year is 1952.

The Rover

The Rover by Aphra Behn
Directed by David Richard Jones

Audition times:
Saturday, October 19, 2019 1-5pm
Sunday, October 20, 2019 5-8pm

Synopsis:
The Rover is an unrestrained comedy about sexual exploration, set during Carnival in Naples, Italy. Masks, cross-dressing, mistaken identities, prostitutes, Spanish grandees, and English dolts—the play has a wide variety of characters who engage in fast-paced physical comedy.

Playwright Aphra Behn is the first woman to be a professional writer in England, possibly in the world. Her 19 plays made her the second-most produced playwright during the Restoration (1660–1700), a period famous for women on stage, sexual liberty, and extravagant dress. Virginia Woolf said all women should let flowers fall upon her tomb "for it was she who earned them the right to speak their minds."

Looking for:
Seeking men, women, and gender nonconforming actors ages 15-50. This production is open to, and encourages, ethnically diverse actors.
Location:
The Vortex Theatre, 2900 Carlisle Blvd. NE, Albuquerque, NM 87110

The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams

The Glass Menagerie will open at the Aux Dog Theatre Nob Hill on February 20, 2020 and run for four or possibly five weeks.

CASTING BREAKDOWN:

Amanda - early 50’s to early 60’s a determined and charming woman whose children are foremost in her life.

Laura – early 20’s to late 20’s, like a piece of fine glass, delicate and easily broken. Extremely vulnerable.

Gentleman Caller – mid 20’s to late 20’s – A former high school hero who has currently lost his luster.

Violinist – Any age or gender capable of improvisational playing.

The role of Tom has been cast and will be played by the director, Mr. Ponzlov, the director of the memory.

Auditions will be in the afternoons of Friday, October 11th and Saturday, October 12th at Ponzlov Acting Studio, 304 Washington Ave. SE. Callbacks will be at the Aux Dog Theatre Nob Hill.

Susan and God

Susan and God is a dramatic comedy that follows Susan, a magnetic socialite, just returned from a trip abroad and on a quest to evangelize her high society friends. Her new religious fervor is mostly scoffed at until her friends start taking her claims personally. Meanwhile, her estranged husband Barrie and daughter Blossom cannot help but hope that Susan's new take on life might just be their ticket back into hers. The play was written in the 1930's by Rachel Crothers, an often overlooked American playwright and theatre director of the early 20th century.

Please prepare a 1 to 2 minute comedic monologue. If you don't have one, sides will be available to read at the audition. Please go to www.vortexabq.org to make an audition appointment.

Callbacks will be Sunday September 15 from 7 to 9pm.

This production is open to ethnically diverse casting.

Auditions for An Adobe Christmas at the Adobe Theater

Auditions will be held for the Adobe Theaters upcoming presentation of An Adobe Christmas Carol, adapted and directed by Pete Parkin on Saturday, September 14 from 1:30 pm to 6:00 pm and on Sunday, September 15, from 6:00 pm to 10:30 pm. Auditions are by appointment only.

To make an appointment for an audition email Rebecca Johnstone, Stage Manager, realjohnstone7@gmail.com

Yes it’s A Christmas Carol, but with a different twist.

In this adaptation of Dickens’ classic tale, a group of homeless people break into an abandoned theatre on Christmas Eve to escape the cold. Looking around in hopes of finding some food or perhaps an old costume for warmth, one of them comes across a copy of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. To take their minds off the cold and their dreary circumstances they decide to “act out” the story. Using things they find lying about the stage (an old door becomes Scrooge’s bed set upon some milk crates and the same door set on garbage cans becomes the Cratchit’s Christmas dinner table) they set about to tell this story. This is an ensemble piece of about 12-14 with only the actor playing Scrooge not playing more than one character.
Because of the concept of the play, there are no set genders, ages or ethnicity for any of the roles. Those wishing to audition are asked to prepare a one-minute monologue they feel would work for the part they are most interested in for the following characters:

Scrooge, Marley, Christmas Past, Christmas Present, Christmas Future, Fezziwig, Bob Cratchit, Ms. Cratchit, Tiny Tim, Peter Cratchit - son, Belinda Cratchit - daughter, Martha Cratchit - daughter, Old Joe, Undertaker, Laundress, Charwoman, Young Scrooge, Belle, Fred- Scrooges - nephew (20s), Henrietta, Fan.

There will be various one-liner parts throughout the play. Once actors are on stage they will remain there for the duration of the show.

An Adobe Christmas Carol opens Friday, November 22 through Sunday, December 22 at The Adobe Theater.

AUDITIONS FOR Staged Reading Festival: Lost Posadas

Auditions at VSA N. 4th, 4904 N. 4th St. NW. Brian Hansen, Director. No prepared audition material is required. For further information, please call the director, Brian Hansen, at (805) 637-4032.
Seeking actors (male and female) for a staged reading of a new, bilingual play set in Northern New Mexico. Lost Posadas has been selected for a single performance at the Adobe Theatre on May 17th as part of their Third Annual ATG Playwright’s Circle Staged Reading Festival.. Rehearsals will be limited (a total of 9 hours spread over 3 rehearsals) and the actors will be carrying scripts. Thus, a staged reading of a new play is a great opportunity for actors to hone their reading skills while developing fully realized characters. Because the play is bilingual in parts, special attention will be given to Latina actors, especially those who speak Spanish.
Lost Posadas deals with a village rediscovering its roots by re-staging the folk play Las Posadas; the fact that most of the village has never even seen the play and that their opening night will be live on national television only heightens the pressure.
Outstanding roles are available, including:
The hard driving (female) mayor of the town;
Three Hispanic young women who figure centrally in the action;
Two young Hispanic Men, one of whom ends up playing the devil;
One Hispanic male who heads up a garage band (and preferably plays the guitar);
The female, take-charge producer of a television production company.

Monty Python's Spamalot

Landmark Musicals

If you're familiar with Monty Python movies and television episodes, you know that the sketches and plots are crazy and most of the characters are nuts. So you must act accordingly. Note, too, that most actors, by design and not because we're cheap (which we are) play multiple roles. All the more fun. Of course, everybody plays it straight.
