The Actors Theater of Orcas Island will have auditions for its winter play at the Grange. The final decision on which play to produce will be made after auditions (to fit the play to the available actors rather than the other way around). Under consideration are two plays by Neil Simon, including “Barefoot In The Park” as well as comedies and farces by a number of well-known playwrights. Together these plays have characters from their late teens to their 80s with casts of two to eight or more actors.
The auditions will be readings from the various plays under consideration. Copies of some of the plays are available at the Orcas Library. They are seeking seasoned as well as new or inexperienced actors. They also want to hear from people interested in building and painting sets, helping with costumes and props, assisting with lighting and sound and being on the running crew (lights, sound and stage crew).
Rehearsals will begin in early December with seven performances on the last two weekends in February and the first weekend in March. Auditions will be held on Thursday, Nov. 30 and Dec. 3 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Grange. If you cannot make either of these dates contact Doug Bechtel at 360-317-5601 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
