Auditions Announced for ANDRE’S MOTHER and MOTHER AND SONS at Middletown Lyric Theatre

MLT_logoAuditions for ANDRE’S MOTHER and MOTHER AND SONS by Terrence McNally

Middletown, Ohio 45044
513-425-7140

Directed by Charley Shafor
cshafor@middletownlyric.org

AUDITIONS
August 5, 6 & 7 @ 7pm – 8:30pm
Cold readings from script

PRODUCTION DATES
November 1, 2, 8 & 9 – there is a matinee on the second Saturday

ANDRE’S MOTHER
At Andre Gerard’s memorial, his lover Cal Porter tries one last time to get through to André’s mother, an imposing figure in Andre’s life. Not realizing her hidden emotions, he tells her everything he can before leaving her alone to deal with her own sense of grief and loneliness. Also attending are Cal’s father Arthur and his sister Penny. This small group of mourners let us see into the AIDS health crisis and how it can affect society’s outlook on acceptance.

MOTHERS AND SONS
It’s now twenty years since Andre Gerard’s funeral and his mother Katherine has decided to pay an unexpected visit to her late son’s partner Cal, who is now married to another man and has a young son. Challenged to face how society has changed around her, generations collide as she revisits the past and begins to see the life her son might have led. A multi-generation look at the AIDS crisis, gay marriage, survivor guilt, homophobia and fear are revealed through humor, anxiety, regret and longing and possibly a lesson that any problem can be solved with Oreos and milk.

CHARACTERS: All ethnicities considered. If you feel you look the age than please audition. Two of the characters in ANDRE’S MOTHER, Arthur Ogden and Penny Ogden have been cast

KATHERINE GERARD – This character plays herself at two different ages somewhere between her mid-to late 40’s to her 60’s. She has recently widowed and still angry and bitter over losing her only child to HIV. Katherine needs to show a wide range of emotion from humor to fear to abject sorrow.

CAL OGDAN – This character plays himself at two different ages ranging from his mid to late 20’s to his 40’s. He is a financial advisor. He was Andre’s partner and perhaps like other widows and widowers, still has deep feelings for a deceased partner that they will carry forever. Now married to Will, Cal is only too aware of how they live in a safer more accepting world

WILL PORTER—Will is in his late 20’s early 30’s and carries a physical confidence that gay men are now living in a more inclusive world and can marry the one they love. He is a writer who is very aware of what Andre meant to Cal but has accepted that Cal is in love with him until Katherine’s arrival.

BUD OGDAN-PORTER—Bud, son of Cal and Will, is a precocious 6-year-old boy who brings an innocence and love to an otherwise tense situation. We are looking for a boy between the age of 6 to 10 who can pass for a 6-8-year-old.
