AUDITIONS TO COME LATER IN 2019
Gaslight (Angel Street) - Thriller
Gaslight tells the story of the Manninghams, who live on Angel Street in 19th century London. All appears to be the essence of Victorian tranquility. It is soon apparent, however, that Mr. Manningham, a suavely handsome man, is slowly driving his gentle, devoted wife, Bella, to the brink of insanity with an insinuating kindness that masks more sinister motives. While he is out, Mrs. Manningham has an unexpected caller: amiable, paternal Inspector Rough from Scotland Yard. Rough is convinced that Mr. Manningham is a homicidal maniac wanted for a murder committed fifteen years earlier in this very house. Gradually, the inspector restores Bella’s confidence in herself and, as the evidence against Manningham unfolds, the author has built and sustained some of the most brilliant, suspenseful sequences in modern theatre.

A Christmas Story - Play, Comedy
This year, there’s a gift that Ralphie wants more than anything in the world – a Red Ryder 200-Shot Carbine Action Range Model Air Rifle – but his parents don’t seem to think it’s such a good idea. His mother warns him, “You’ll shoot your eye out,” and his father is too busy tinkering with the family’s furnace and evading the dogs from next door to pay much attention. As Christmas draws closer, Ralphie gets increasingly anxious about what surprises (either good or bad) the holiday season will bring.
If we are unable to find child actors for the production, adult actors will be chosen to play children and the play will end up being more of a parody of the movie rather than a version of it. Child/young actors must have on stage acting experience. We’re looking for kids who are confident, who are good storytellers, and who appear to be at ease in the company of adults.
Ralphie Parker - 10 - 13 - The young protagonist. Equal parts dreamer and schemer, Ralphie doesn’t just covet an air rifle, he also knows (or thinks he knows) exactly how to persuade the adults around him that his cause is a righteous one.
Ralph Parker - 30 - 60 - Ralphie’s older, wiser alter ego, functions as the story’s narrator and assumes the roles of the various townspeople who populate the landscape of the play.
Ralphie's Mother - 35 - 50 - a patient parent with firm convictions – in particular, the conviction that her son should not own an air rifle. It takes a lot to ruffle her feathers, but the provocative leg lamp that Ralphie’s father wins in a send-away contest does seem to do the trick.
The Old Man, 40 - 60 - the Parker family’s beleaguered patriarch, is a grumpy, good-hearted father with a penchant for highly original (and to the audience’s ears profanity-free) invective and a deeply held desire to be a winner.
Randy, 8 - 10 - Ralphie's little brother, sure is cute, but getting him to eat his breakfast or don his snowsuit can be a serious headache.
Flick - 10 - 13 - one of Ralphie's friends. He is the unfortunate guinea pig in the infamous frozen-flagpolelicking experiment,. Wise cracking.
Schwartz - 1- - 13 - another of Ralphie's friends. He becomes the scapegoat when Ralphie accidentally utters an unspeakable word.
Scott Farkas - 14 - 20 is the schoolyard bully who routinely torments Ralphie and his friends. He has yellow eyes!
Miss Shields - 30 - 60 is Ralphie’s teacher. She’s also an integral component of his campaign for the perfect Christmas gift.
Esther Jane - 10 - 13 - One of Raplhie's classmates. Has an interest in Raphie. - Already cast from previous auditions.
Helen - 10 -13 - another of Ralphie's friends. Helen is something of a child prodigy
Department Store Santa - 35 - 65 - The "Anti-Santa." Cold, tired of his job. Hates kids.
