Auditions Announced at THE BOOK CLUB PLAY at Lebanon Theatre Company

LTC_logoTHE BOOK CLUB PLAY by Karen Zacarias

We will be holding auditions at our theatre on 10 S. Mechanic St., on:

  • Monday, February 27 at 7pm
  • Tuesday, February 28 at 7pm

All roles (unless stated) are in their 30s and 40s, but these are guidelines only. The ensemble fit/chemistry of the 5 friends is more important. Pace and flow are vital for this comedy. Lily is written as black, but all ethnicities for all roles are options.

  • Ana – Beautiful. Charming. Smart. Accomplished. Organized. A columnist for a daily paper. The “Mother Bee.” Her grace masks a need to control.
  • Robert – Ana’s golden-boy; handsome, charismatic, underachiever husband who is starting to search for meaning. Met in college. Upper-crust background.
  • William – Rob’s conservative, well-read, well-dressed, disciplined college roommate. Ana’s former boyfriend. History buff. Unmarried.
  • Jen – Ana’s friend. Pretty. Shy. Smart. Tends to burst out with awkward truthful comments. Despite some lack of self-confidence, she is the grounding centre of the group. Unorganized and oblivious to her own attractiveness. Unmarried.
  • Lily (black, 20s) – A go-getter. Former debate captain who is on the cusp of all current trends and yet can still put her foot in her mouth on social occasions. Laughs at appropriate and inappropriate times. A great lover of books and Ana’s protégé at the paper.
  • Alex – The new guy. A very smart, well-read academic who has lost his moorings and is searching for a real connection. Professor of comparative literature.
  • Pundit (either 1 or several actors, any age/gender): playing five characters: Sam, Wal-Mart guy; Frank, Secret Service agent; Elsa, jaded literary agent; Mrs Simpson, skydiver; Carl, an inmate book dealer.

Production dates: April 28-May 7

LEND ME A TENOR Runs Feb. 24-March 5

Lebanon Theatre Company
Feb. 24-March 5

Directed by Abby Kinnebrew-Smith

Cast: Evan Smith as Max, Darien Hewett as Maggie, Michael Schumacher as Saunders, Scott Mussari as Tito, Jessica Armour as Maria, Michael Cline as Bellhop, Tina Green as Diana & Karla Meeker as Julia

Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to welcome world-famous singer Tito Merelli, known as Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as the star of the opera. Tito arrives late, and through a hilarious series of mishaps, he is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max believe he’s dead – and in a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into Merelli’s costume and fool the audience into thinking he’s Il Stupendo. Max succeeds and lives up to his idol, but Merelli regains consciousness and gets into the identical costume, ready to perform. Now two opera singers are running around in the same costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo.

PLAID TIDINGS Runs Dec. 8-12

LTC_Plaid Tidings logoPLAID TIDINGS
Lebanon Theatre Company
Dec. 8-12

Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who discovered that they shared a love for music and then got together to become their idols – The Four Freshman, The Hi-Lo’s and The Crew Cuts. Rehearsing in the basement of Smudge’s family’s plumbing supply company, they became “Forever Plaid”. On the way to their first big gig, the “Plaids” are broadsided by a school bus and killed instantly. It is at the moment when their careers and lives end that the story of Forever Plaid begins and leads to posthumous performance.

A short time after, Francis, Jinx, Smudge and Sparky aren’t sure why they’ve returned to Earth for ANOTHER posthumous performance. However, a phone call from the heavenly Rosemary Clooney lets them know that they’re needed to put a little harmony into a discordant world. Sprinkled among the Christmas offerings are audience favorites, like their riotous three-minute-and-eleven-second version of The Ed Sullivan Show – this time, featuring the Rockettes, the Chipmunks and The Vienna Boys Choir, as well as a Plaid Caribbean Christmas that puts the “Day-O” in Excelsis!

  • Thu-Sat, Dec. 8-10 at 7:30pm
  • Sun, Dec. 11 at 2pm & 7pm
