Director Applications Sought for 2020-2021 Season at Mariemont Players Inc.

MPI_logoDirector Applications being accepted for Mariemont Players 2020-2021 Season

Mariemont Players is currently accepting applications for directing for the MPI 2020-2021 Season. To receive an application and additional information please contact Dee Anne Bryll at bryllcohen@gmail.com.

Mareimont Players hope to present theatre that make our audience think and feel about what they see on our stage. We want our patrons to be entertained but just as importantly we want them to feel an emotional connection to the material.

Our season slots are September, November, January, March, May, and July. The committee is looking for comedies that can make an audience laugh, a drama that makes them cry, or best of all a show that can do both. It could be a mystery that keeps them guessing until the end or a musical that has them singing in their seats. It could be a favorite classic with a fresh production or an exciting new show.

In addition, we want to provide opportunities for local actors, designers, and technicians to continue to grow and develop as artists.

Deadline for applications is July 15, 2019.

Auditions Announced for BROADWAY BOUND at Mariemont Players

MPI_logoShow Title: BROADWAY BOUND by Neil Simon

Director: Jerry Wiesenhahn

Synopsis: Part three of Neil Simon’s acclaimed semi-autobiographical trilogy finds Eugene Jerome and his older brother Stanley trying to break into the world of show business as professional comedy writers while coping with family tensions, parental pressures, and maybe even…love? When their material is broadcast on the radio for the first time, some things about the family portrayed in the sketch seem very familiar…

Audition: Sunday, July 14th and Monday, July 15th both 7:00pm – 9:00pm by appointment on the half hour. Please reserve your time via this link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090D44AFAB2FA2FE3-broadway

Audition Requirements: Bring headshot and resume. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.

Rehearsal times: Rehearsals will begin on Tuesday, October 1st from 7-9:30pm and will occur every Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday (unless there are cast conflicts) until tech week.

Production Dates: Friday, November 8th-8pm, Saturday, November 9th-8pm, Sunday, November 10th-2pm, Thursday, November 14th, 8pm, Friday, November 15th, 8pm, Saturday, November 16th, 8pm, Sunday, November 17th, 2pm and 7pm, Thursday, November 21st, 8pm, Friday, November 22nd, 8pm, Saturday, November 23rd, 3pm and 8pm, Sunday, November 24th 2pm

Description of Characters:

Eugene Morris Jerome – The play’s narrator and the focal character of the Eugene trilogy. Carefree, witty to a fault, and quick to joke, he is 23 years old and working in the stock room of a music company before his brother and writing partner, Stanley, helps them both to break into the world of showbiz. While he maintains his affable and seemingly care-free nature, Eugene cares deeply about everyone in his family, especially for his parents. Neil Simon wrote Eugene as his own self, the playwright’s semi-autobiographical analogue in the work.

Stanley Jerome – Eugene’s older brother. At 28 years old, he is neurotic, high-strung, and constantly obsessing and worrying over the details. He brokers the first opportunity for he and his brother to show their material to NBC Studios and co-writes the sketch with his brother; the two constantly bicker and play as they attempt to write their first big comedy sketch.

Ben Epstein (mide-late 70s/early 80s) – Father of Kate, grandfather to Stanley and Eugene. A born socialist and ardent follower of Trotsky, he lives with his daughter and her family in Brighton Beach. Stan and Eugene find Grandpa, in his age, to be one of their greatest goldmines for accidental comedy. He cares deeply for his daughters and their families, but due to his upbringing and beliefs is not an affectionate man.

Kate Jerome (early-mid 50s) – A strong woman through and through, Eugene and Stanley’s mother has done her best to take care of her father, Ben, while raising her boys and keeping a wary eye on her husband. She values family, and familial experiences – such as the simple act of sitting down and eating together as a family. She knows her boys are grown men, but will never not see them as her babies.

Jack Jerome (mid-late 50s)– The father to Eugene and Stanley, he’s a tough nut for certain. Having worked as a clothier for many years, making ladies raincoats, he’s become a bit numb to the monotony of life. Like Ben, he is not an affectionate man, masked by his exhaustion and his own self-provided frustrations.

Blanche Morton (early 50s) – Kate’s (now) well-to-do sister. She has remarried, and her second husband built himself up to afford a home on Park Avenue and the finer things in life. Ben is at odds with Blanche when she comes to visit – he can only focus on Blanche’s giving in to capitalist society.

Cast Announced for IS HE DEAD? at Mariemont Players

MPI_logoMARIEMONT (OH) – Mariemont Players, Inc. announces the cast for the first production of its 2019-2020 season, IS HE DEAD? Michele Mascari makes her MPI directorial debut with the comedy by Mark Twain adapted by David Ives.

The cast includes:

  • Nick Young – Francois Millet/Daisy Tillou
  • Ryan Bowron – Chicago
  • Jimmy Jackson – O’Shaugnessy
  • Darren Lee – Dutchy
  • Katie Jensen – Marie
  • Cat Cook – Cecile/Lefaux
  • Roscoe Mlinek – Papa Leroux
  • Petrina Barresi – Mme. Bathilde
  • Tara Pettit – Mme. Caron
  • Ray Lebowski – Andre Bastien
  • Danny Davies – Charlie, Basil, Claude, King of France, policeman

The (silent) roles of the Sultan of Turkey and the Emperor of Russia will be played by a series of special guests who will vary through the run.

“I’m excited to work with this cast,” Mascari said. “We have a nice mix of people I’ve worked with before and people I’m just meeting. We have some Mariemont stalwarts and some people these audiences will be seeing for the first time.

“I know we will laugh a lot while putting this show on its feet. You can’t help laughing with this material. Comedy is difficult, but we are up to the challenge and will have audiences laughing with us in September.”

Is He Dead? presents a fictional version of the great French painter Jean-François Millet as an impoverished artist in Barbizon, France. He stages his own death with the help of his colleagues to increase the value of his paintings, then dresses as a woman – ostensibly his sister, the Widow Daisy Tillou – to keep his secret safe. Is He Dead? combines elements of burlesquefarce, and social satire; it features devices like cross-dressing, mistaken identities and romantic deceptions to tell a story that raises questions about fame, greed and the value of art.

Is He Dead? opens Sept. 13 in the historic Walton Creek Theater (4101 Walton Creek Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45227) and runs through Sept. 29.

Tickets are $20 general admission and $15 for students and are available online at www.mariemontplayers.com or by phone at 513-684-1236.
