Auditions Announced for ALMOST, MAINE at Stagecrafters

SC_logoStagecrafters is pleased to announce auditions on June 24th and 25th, 2018 for ALMOST, MAINE by John Cariani, directed by Mike Morehead.

Performance dates are October 27 & 28 and Nov. 2, 3 & 4, 2018.

Auditions will be held at 5779 Bomark Court in Blue Ash, OH 45242 beginning at 7:00 p.m. Auditions will consist of cold reads from the script.

Produced through special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

There are 17 roles played by either 8 or 11 actors

Please bring Resume and Head shot. If no head shot is available, a picture may be taken.

Please be prepared to provide conflicts from August 25 through November 4, 2018.

Rehearsals will be by scene, so only the persons called for that scene will need to be at that rehearsal, until mid October. There are 11 short scenes: the Prologue (which continues in the Interlogue and Epilogue), Her Heart, Sad and Glad, This Hurts, Getting It Back, They Fell, Where It Went, Story of Hope, and Seeing the Thing. Besides a few references to characters in other scenes, the stories do not intertwine.

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

Directions:: I-71 to exit 15 (Pfeiffer Rd Exit) (the exit between Ronald Reagan and I-275)
If you are heading north on I-71, turn left on Pfeiffer
If you are heading south on I-71, turn right on Pfeiffer
Turn right at the first major street (Kenwood Rd.)
Turn right at the first street (Kenridge Dr.) in 0.7 miles
Turn left on the first street (Bomark Ct.)
If you count the house on the corner, Arny’s is the 4th house on the left

May 5-13
Sharonville Cultural Arts Center

Directed by Michael L. Morehead

Cast: Jessica Faye, Clare Graff, Beth Marthaler-Griffin, Liz Koch, Darren Lee, Kaitrin McCoy, Ilana Milberg & Lauren Woodiwiss

Jake, a novelist who is more successful with fiction than with life, faces a marital crisis by daydreaming about the women in his life. The wildly comic and sometimes moving flashbacks played in his mind are interrupted by visitations from actual females. Jake’s women include a revered first wife who was killed years earlier in an accident, his daughter who is recalled as a child but is now a young woman, his boisterous and bossy sister, an opinionated analyst, his current wife who is leaving Jake for another man, and a prospective third wife.

Stagecrafters
Feb. 10-18
Sharonville Cultural Arts Center

Directed by Darren Lee

Cast: Jamie Ball, Sharon Cardona, Dana Davis, Brandon Dunphy, Jessica Faye, Lora Pateras, Kent Smith & Cathy Woodruff

Set in a small Texas town in anytime, U.S.A., Daddy’s Dyin’ concerns the reunion of a family gathered to await the imminent death of their patriarch, who has recently suffered a physically, as well as mentally, disabling stroke. In essence, however, it is not the story of the impending demise of the father or the drafting of his will, but of a rebirth of the spirit of the family unit.
