Casting Requirements:

  • Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.
  • A résumé and headshot are not required but are appreciated.
  • Please provide a list of all known conflicts.

Character breakdowns:

  • Sharon — 54 year-old woman (race/ethnicity open)
    Sharon is not naive but she has lived a stereotypical, normal, Midwestern, middle-class life with little sense of adventure. She’s still a little wounded and disillusioned by her recent divorce. Her craving for adventure is awoken by the introduction of Robyn into her life.
  • Robyn — 56 year-old woman (race/ethnicity open)
    Robyn is a more worldly woman with a darker past who is trying to turn over a new leaf. She has a tinge of cynicism coming from hard knocks.

*(actors need to be able to play these ages rather than actually *be* these ages)

Rehearsal are on the following overall schedule of Apr 19-May 26*
(usually Mon-Thu)
Sat, May 29 will be the Tech rehearsal
Performance will be shot June 1-4 (Tue-Fri)
*First two weeks on Zoom

Performances Cancelled Until August 2021 at Dayton Theatre Guild

DTG_See You in August logoWe regret that due to the on-going coronavirus pandemic we are postponing our live performances until August of 2021, when we plan to kick off our 2021/2022 season.

Your health and safety, and that of our volunteers, casts, and production crews is of the utmost concern. We have come to this difficult decision as so many of our fellow arts organizations, both local and around the world, have done.

We look forward to offering you a robust season when we open. Please stay tuned for information on upcoming productions and ticket information.

During the pandemic, and as we approach the end of the year, the Dayton Theatre Guild would appreciate any monetary donation, in any amount you are able to make. All donations will be used to help keep the Guild viable until we are able to reopen to the public.

We have been fortunate to have your loyal patronage for all these years, and we are impatient to get back to the business of “Giving You Good Theatre, Done Well!”

Be well and stay safe!

Remainder of 2019-2020 Season Cancelled at Dayton Theatre Guild

DTGDear Patrons,

The Dayton Theatre Guild regrets to announce that due to the Covid-19 virus, we will be cancelling the remainder of our season. Looking at the social distancing that is occurring overseas, we anticipate the US will alter its social distancing requirements two or three month after other nations that have been dealing with this longer alter their requirements. With that expectation, we are likely seeing a return to normal sometime in the Summer or Fall.

As you might expect, there was a lot of time, money, and effort already invested in Mornings at Seven by Paul Osborn. We purchased the rights for the show, scripts, actors spent weeks preparing, our set builder had nearly finished building the entire set, and our costumers had completed sewing all the costumes and were just about to tailor them for each actor. Our loss for The Old Man and the Old Moon will be less. Fortunately, we were able to cancel auditions before they occurred. We do however, have the lost revenue from not being able to present both productions along with requested refunds. Therefore, we would like to extend the option for you to help support the Dayton Theatre Guild by changing your ticket purchase into a donation. If you would like to help by changing your ticket purchase into a donation, we would be happy to send you a donation letter. However, we will also offer a refund if you purchased tickets and would prefer a refund. Our email is contactus@daytontheatreguild.org and our phone number is 937-278-5993. We hope that most will take us up on the offer to change your purchase into a donation. Therefore, we will assume you would like to change your ticket purchase into a donation if we DO NOT hear from you. You only need to contact us with a message indicting you would like a refund.

Thank you for your continued patronage and we wish you all good health.

As a public venue we are acutely aware of the elevated risk of public gatherings. At this time we intend on presenting all performances as scheduled. While we are taking the extra precaution of extra cleaning we need to ask for your help as well.

MORNING’S AT SEVEN by Paul Osborn opens a week from this Friday (March 20, 2020). We ask that if you are showing any symptoms or have been exposed to someone showing symptoms of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) or any other illness, we ask you to postpone your attendance to a later performance in the run. The production runs for three weekends (March 20 – April 5, 2020). If you’re unable to attend Mornings at Seven by Paul Osborn due to illness, we will gladly change your tickets to a future performance this season. Simply call us at 937-278-5993 and leave a message as to the date of your current tickets and the new date you wish to attend and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

If at a later time the situation changes and we need to adjust or cancel performances, we will post information to our website as well as send out an email to those on our mailing list and/or reach out to those without email addresses. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
