Circle Theatre announces auditions for...
Don't Talk to the Actors

by Tom Dudzick

Directed by Harry Parker

Performance dates are June 16 - July 16, 2016 

(Rehearsals begin May 23, 2016)



The season’s third play is Tom Dudzick’s backstage comedy, Don’t Talk to the Actors. A budding playwright’s dreams are swept away into a theatrical nightmare when his play is optioned for Broadway. Mr. Dudzick’s semi-autobiographical tale is bound to be another fan favorite at Circle, like his previous productions: Over the Tavern (2005); The Last Mass at St. Casimir's (2007); Hail Mary! (2009); and Miracle on South Division Street (2013). 


Sunday, March 6th - Beginning at 1pm


Monday, March 7th - Beginning at 6pm


Equity and Non-Equity roles are available.

Circle Theatre is a member of the Equity Membership Candidacy program.

Housing and transportation are not provided for out of town hires.


Character Descriptions:

NOTE:  All characters -- strong on comedy!

JERRY PRZPEZNIAK, 30-ish.  Small-time Buffalo playwright suddenly hurled into the whirlwind of Broadway!  Likeable and sweet, but assertive when pushed too far.  

ARLENE WYNIARSKI, late 20’s.  Fiance of playwright.  Small-town girl suddenly thrust into New York theatre scene.  Starstruck by big Broadway actors.  Naive, impulsive.  

MIKE POLICZEK, 50’s.  Chicago theatrical director.  In NYC directing new play as favor to old friend producer.  Blessed with an easy going nature.  Handles crises with ease and grace.  Friendly and laid back, but thoroughly competent and professional.

CURT LOGAN, 60-ish.  Former TV star, desperately seeking vehicle to put him back in spotlight.  Large, handsome, well-preserved, bombastic, over-bearing.  Goes through life playing to the back of the house.

BEATRICE POMEROY, 60-ish.  Former night club entertainer/belter of songs, with adult humor her specialty.  Cast opposite Curt Logan in 80’s TV sitcom.  Now back to the old stand as bawdy chanteusse, picking up time in small dives.  Thrilled to be cast in Broadway play opposite Logan.  Though loud, brassy and bawdy, she’s a sweet, gentle soul down under.

LUCINDA SHAW, 30-ish.  Stage manager for new Broadway play. British.  Physically a total mess.  Hair wild and unmanaged.  Thrift shop clothing thrown on with no sense of ensemble.  But in rehearsal management her type-A personality comes to the fore and she is impeccable.  Her fastidiousness and lust for detail have made her one of NY’s most sought after stage managers.  Comes off a cold automaton, but there’s a warm heart underneath. (Note: role may also be played by a male. He becomes Louis Shaw. Gay Brit with boyfriend. Line changes are in Appendix of script.)
