Announcing Springboro Community Theatre Auditions for ALMOST, MAINE by John Cariani.
7pm on Monday, January 13, 2020 and Tuesday, January 14, 2020.
Director: Sara Bortz
Assistant Director: Scott Madden
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script (available upon request). Resumes and headshots are appreciated, but not required. Auditioners do not need to be there for both nights of auditions, but are welcome to come to both.
Please provide a list of all known conflicts between January 13th and March 8th, including weekends. Rehearsals will be 3-4 days a week M-Th from 7-9:30pm, with possible extended hours and a 5th day if needed in the last 2 weeks of rehearsal. Set build will take place on the weekends, and all actors are encouraged to help.
ALMOST, MAINE is a sweet romantic comedy that inventively explores the mysteries of the human heart. On one deeply cold and magical Midwinter night, the citizens of Almost — not organized enough for a town, too populated for a wilderness — experience the life-altering power of the human heart. Relationships begin, end, or change beyond recognition, as strangers become friends, friends become lovers, and lovers turn into strangers. Propelled by the mystical energy of the aurora borealis and populated with characters who are humorous, plain-spoken, thoughtful, and sincere, Almost, Maine is a series of loosely connected tales about love, each with a compelling couple at its center, each with its own touch of sorcery.
Available roles include:
Male: Pete, East, Jimmy, Steve, Lendall, Randy, Chad, Phil, Man & Dave
Female: Ginette, Glory, Sandrine, Waitress, Marvalyn, Gayle, Marci, Hope & Rhonda
A diverse cast is desired and encouraged to audition. We are looking for actors who can play ages 18-50, with most characters appearing between 25 and 40. This show will utilize double casting, with 4-7 actors playing multiple roles. This is a great chance to showcase your range of emotions and comedic timing.
Show dates are February 28, 29, March 6, 7 at 8PM, March 1 and 8 at 2PM.
