Circle Theatre announces auditions for...

Rasheeda Speaking 

by Joel Drake Johnson


Directed by Krista Scott


Performance dates are April 27 - May 20, 2017

(Rehearsals begin April 3, 2017)

 

ABOUT THE PLAY: Rasheeda Speaking, Joel Drake Johnson’s psychological thriller, pits two co-workers against each other, when one receives a promotion to monitor the other. Office politics, fueled by racial contention, creates a battle to control the workplace. This chilling, dark comedy blends the realities of racism, superiority, and friendship, and will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.


AUDITION APPOINTMENT TIMES: Sunday, January 29th - Beginning at 1pm


CALLBACKS: Sunday, February 5th - Beginning at 1pm

 

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS:


Dr. David Williams-- Caucasian, 40s-50s. He has his own internal medicine clinic within a larger medical center. Some might see him as a shrewd business manager, others as a manipulative chauvinist, and still others as the epitome of narcissistic white male privilege.  He sees himself as a successful doctor doing what's best for his patients and his practice.


Ileen Van Meter-- Caucasian, 40s-50s. She is a competent, if somewhat unorganized, clinic receptionist. Some might say she's empathetic and supportive of everyone she meets, others might say she's easily manipulated by stronger personalities, and still others might say she's acts solely out of self-preservation.  She would say that she's just trying to turn lemons into lemonade.


Jaclyn Spaulding--African-American, 30s-40s.  She is a clinic receptionist who is a bit of a hypochondriac, often suspicious of others' intentions.  Some would say she's refreshingly frank in her communication, others might say she's rude and off-putting, still others might say she looks for a fight. She would say she's an activist for equal treatment, opportunity and respect.


Mrs. Rose Saunders--Caucasian, 70s, patient of Dr. Williams. Everyone would say she's a typically dotty elderly woman a few decades behind the times in cultural politics.

Circle Theatre announces auditions for...


King O' The Moon

by Tom Dudzick


Directed by Harry Parker


Performance dates are June 15 - July 15, 2017

(Rehearsals begin May 22, 2017)

 

ABOUT THE PLAY: The Pazinski family returns to Circle’s stage in King O’ the Moon by Tom Dudzick, the second play in a trilogy inspired by the author’s childhood. Circle produced Dudzick’s Over the Tavern in 2005 and The Last Mass at St. Casimir’s in 2007.  Ten years after Over the Tavern, this sequel takes place during the rebellious ‘60’s as Apollo 11 is on its voyage to the moon. The Pazinski’s come together as their lives seem to fall apart. Prior knowledge of this working-class family is not a prerequisite to appreciate the hilarious and heartfelt end to the three part series at Circle.


AUDITION APPOINTMENT TIMES: Sunday, February 19th - Beginning at 1pm


CALLBACKS: Monday, February 20th - Beginning at 6pm

 

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS:

(DIRECTOR’S NOTE: The play is set in the backyard of the 

Pazinski tavern/apartment in Buffalo, NY -  July, 1969.)


ELLEN PAZINSKI: Early 50’s.  She is the widowed matriarch of the Pazinski clan, still living “over the tavern” that is the family business.  (This role has been pre-cast)


RUDY PAZINSKI: 22 years old.  Ellen’s Son. He is impassioned, devout, and confused, but in the wrappings of a comedian, the class clown, the smart-ass little brother. Quick and witty. Currently attending a Catholic seminary in preparation to become a priest, he cares deeply about his family and about the anti-war movement. 


GEORGIE PAZINSKI: 23 years old.  Ellen’s Son. A developmentally challenged man-child with the mental and emotional age of about 5 years old.  A sweet young man in generally good spirits, he communicates with noises and gestures and a precious few garbled words.  He has a determined single focus on the things he cares about. (Those auditioning for Georgie, select either Rudy or Eddie’s monologue. Please mark on your audition form if you would like to be considered for this role.)


EDDIE PAZINSKI: 25 years old.  Ellen’s Son. Eddie got drafted, and into the Army and is happy to serve.  He’s home right now with his pregnant wife Maureen.  He is tough, the older brother-bully of the family.  Eddie is not as smart or thoughtful as Rudy, nor as funny and quick-witted.  But he wants to do what is right, and he is unfailingly loyal.


ANNIE PAZINSKI: 26 years old.  Ellen’s Daughter. She has a smart, sarcastic tone, and she typically has spent a lot of energy feeling sorry for herself.  Now that she is in a failing marriage, she has real reason to do so.  She feels trapped, and doesn’t know whether or not her family can help her.


MAUREEN PAZINSKI: 26 years old.  ELLEN’s daughter-in-law. Eddie’s wife who is about halfway through her pregnancy. She is attractive, sexual, and a blue-collar diner waitress.  Maureen is as coarse and foul-mouthed and tough as her husband Eddie, but she loves him. 


WALTER FRONZAK: Late 50’s.  ELLEN’s employee/suitor. A friendly man who works at the family tavern and has been around the family for many years.  Walter is low-key, but determined.  He’s genuinely kind and thoughtful.  Now, he has fallen for Ellen and wants to marry her.
