Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a math professor at The University of Chicago. Following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father’s, who hopes to find valuable work in the notebooks he left behind. In the ensuing struggles, a mysterious notebook surfaces to draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father’s madness – or genius – will she inherit?

Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play, PROOF is a compelling drama with elements of mystery, romance, and old-fashioned storytelling.

Live Auditions for trueCAMP at trueTHEATRE

TRUE_logoEveryone has a story to tell and we want to hear yours! Come join us Wednesday, June 19th from 7-10pm, at the Northside Tavern to share a 5 minute version of your story idea for possible inclusion in our Season 9 finale, trueCAMP (which will be on Thursday, July 25th, at Memorial Hall).

OR JUST COME WATCH THE FUN! IT’S FREE! The stories will be shared in an open-mic fashion and the bar will be open. It’s like its own show… AND IT’S FREE TO COME WATCH!

For those of you pitching a story, you can sign up to pitch when you get there, but to guarantee your spot, contact us at https://www.truetheatre.com/true-pitch/ or pitch by phone at (513) 463-TRUE.

To prepare your pitch, think of the true, personal, camp-themed story you would want to tell at the show, and dwindle it down to 4 – 5 minutes of captivating storytelling and blow us away! If you’re chosen, you will then work with our Story Team to expand on your story for the 10-12 minute version you will eventually tell at trueCAMP!

Pitching a story at this event is not the only way you can be invited to be in the show, but it is the FIRST way and those who hesitate risk missing out on the limited spots!

We’ve compiled some answers to frequently asked questions about pitch nights here: https://www.truetheatre.com/pitch-nights, but one additional one you’ll need to know for this: we are not looking for campING stories, but CAMP stories (if there was a counselor or activity director, then you’re on the right track). We’ll gladly listen to any story you want to tell (for 5 minutes) at the Pitch Night, but for trueCAMP, we’re looking for camp-themed stories. If in doubt, just ask us!

Auditions Announced for GREETINGS! at Sunset Players

SSP_logoSunset Players will hold open auditions for GREETINGS! on Wednesday, May 29 and Thursday, May 30 from 7-9 pm at The Art Center at Dunham at 1945 Dunham Way, Cincinnati, OH 45238.

Written by Tom Dudzick and produced by special arrangements with Samuel French, Andy has a sweet Catholic mother, a sour Catholic father and an intellectually disabled younger brother named Mickey. When he brings his Jewish atheist fiancé to meet the folks on Christmas Eve, his worst fears about family blow-ups are realized. But when Mickey, whose entire vocabulary has been limited to “oh boy” and “wow” suddenly spouts the word “Greetings!”, the entire family’s belief system is turned upside down. For it seems an ancient, wise and witty spirit who is set upon healing the family’s wounds has borrowed Mickey’s body.

Directed by Dennis Murphy, show dates for GREETINGS! are September 20, 21, 27, 28, 29, October 3, 4 and 5, 2019.The cast consists of:

  • Two men playing 30s
  • One woman playing 30s
  • One man playing 60s
  • One woman playing 50s to 60s

Auditions will involve cold readings from the script. If you cannot make the audition dates and are interested in a role, contact Dennis Murphy at durfsworld@yahoo.com to schedule an alternate audition.

Sunset Players, Inc. is a community theater group located on the west side of Cincinnati. Founded in 1979, the group performs at the Arts Center at Dunham and has produced more than 120 plays. Its mission is to bring a smile, and its plays include comedies, farces, dramatic comedies and musical comedies—as long as there is some “comedy” in the performance somewhere.
