"The one Act Play that Goes Wrong"
ITR Theatre is holding auditions for our spring play.
"The One Act Play that Goes Wrong" will be directed by Len Tremblay and in spite of the name, will be staged in two acts. Anticipated show dates are the first two weekends in May 2023.
The story of “The One-Act Play That Goes Wrong” — if it can be considered to have a story — is structured as a play within a play, with the actors portraying members of the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society putting on a production of the fictional play “Murder at Haversham Manor.” Because of the 'ensemble' nature of the show, there aren't really firm ages for the characters - it is more that the relationships between the characters should be believable. Auditions will consist of a cold read - you may read for more than one character.
The roles are as follows:
Annie - 'Stage Manager'
Trevor - 'Lighting and Sound' - can be any gender
Chris - Head of the drama society, director of the play and plays 'Inspector Carter'
Jonathan - Plays 'Charles Haversham'
Robert - Plays 'Thomas Colleymore', Charles' old school friend
Dennis - Plays ‘Perkin's - can be any gender
Max - Plays 'Cecil Haversham', Charles' brother
Sandra - Plays 'Florence Colleymore', Charles' fiancée and Thomas' sister
Auditions are taking place on Tuesday, December 6th from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and on Sunday, December 11th from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The location of the auditions is at the hall across the street from St.John's the Evangelist Church in Enniskerry - 2547 Stagecoach Rd. If you are coming from Snake Island Rd, the hall is white and is on the right side of the road and comes up quite suddenly after turning onto Stagecoach Rd.
If necessary, call backs will be held on Tuesday, December 13th.
