“Much Ado About Nothing” is one of William Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. It continues to charm modern audiences with its wit, humor, and social commentary on loyalty, love, gender roles, and power.

This production will use Shakespeare\'s original, classic language, but will be set in 1980’s Wall Street, New York City, where the town of Messina becomes Messina, Inc.

Inspired by the workplace films of the era like “Working Girl,” “Wall Street,” “9 to 5,” “Baby Boom,” and as the 1980s were responsible for a seismic shift for women in the workplace, setting the play in this period underscores Shakespeare’s existing themes in the play text for a fresh, exciting, and modern production of “Much Ado About Nothing”.
*

Performances will be held Oct. 20 - 22 & 27 - 29, 2017 at the Clarkston Campus
Rehearsals will begin after Labor Day and run Sun. - Thurs. Details at auditions

Dickens Christmas Carol http://www.atlantaperforms.biz/auditions.php?auid=2999 Category: Actors

ACT1 Theater announces auditions for our holiday production:
Dickens Christmas Carol: A Traveling Travesty in Two Tumultuous Acts
Auditions: Monday, August 21st starting at 7:00 pm or Tuesday, August 22nd starting at 7:00 pm, audition slots by appointment only: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080c4da4aa29a3f49-audition1

Callback auditions will be on Thursday, August 24th at 7:00 pm.
AUDITION INSTRUCTIONS
We’ll have you sign in and fill out an audition form to tell us about yourself. Don’t worry if you’ve never done this before – experience is not required. If you have a headshot, bring it along. If not, we’ll take a picture to help us remember who’s who after you’re gone. If an auditioner is under the age of 18, they must have a parent present and have that parent sign minor participation forms.
We also understand that rehearsals may overlap with the end of current productions for some actors. We ask that you provide us with details of conflicts and impacts at your audition.
Everyone auditioning will check in and report to one room, and fill out forms – though we suggest that you fill in those forms in advance. You will be called in appointment order to perform a one-minute prepared comedic monologue and cold reading for the Director and Stage Manager in a separate room. If you are called back for the Thursday callbacks, you’ll be asked to read scenes from the play with other auditioners. The Director and Stage Manager will run the auditions. We’re all friendly and promise that it won’t be intimidating! You may be asked to read a part that you’re obviously not suited for, or that you have no interest in. It doesn’t mean you’re being considered for that part but rather helps us gauge your flexibility and range.
No parts are pre-cast, and everyone who gets a part will have auditioned at one of the 2 originally scheduled times, unless special arrangements are made in advance.
If invited back for the callbacks on August 24th, 2 PM – 5 PM, you will be reading with other actors from the script.

SHOW DESCRIPTION
From the author of the popular Faith County and An Evening of Culture - Faith County II comes a completely different adaptation of the holiday classic, A Christmas Carol. From the bonny shores of England comes the Styckes-Upon-Thump Repertory Theatre Company, a stuffy old travelling troupe embarking on their fifteenth annual farewell tour of the Dickens\' tale. The company includes Sir Selsdon Piddock, the consummate actor, in the role of Ebenezer Scrooge, with Mrs. Bettina Salisbury, Dame Rowena Middleton-Lewis, Mrs. Cordelia ffoliet-ffolkes ffortescue Woods, Teddy Shub and Elyot Crummels in multiple supporting roles. Sweet Cynthia Imbry, the general understudy, suddenly finds herself thrust onstage to perform a role she\'s ill-prepared for! Bettina, the company diva, pretends to be ill, certain the production will be cancelled. However, much to her shock and rage, the show does go on without her! Roles are shuffled at the last minute and poor Cynthia finds herself center stage. The play begins but mid-way through the theatre doors open and in rushes Bettina, determined to reclaim her roles. Mayhem ensues as this professional company scrambles to keep the show going and everything that could possibly go wrong does, to hilarious, ridiculous results!

CHARACTERS: DESCRIPTIONS

Synopsis and Character Breakdown:

“A Little Room at the Inn” is a lighthearted Christmas play for adults.

Bill Grenawalt has reached the top of the corporate ladder by being protective of his reputation as a solitary leader.  This regard is tested when Bill, who is nearing retirement, and his much younger protégé, Julie Shaffer get caught in an unexpected snowstorm two days before Christmas.  Desperate for shelter, Bill and Julie find refuge in the last room available at the Wake Robin Inn, a roadside motel that operates by its own set of standards. 

CHARACTERS
*We are casting four actors, for five roles.

BILL GRENAWALT: Bill is approaching retirement. He is the CEO of a major company that has several division of home products. He is a hard worker, conscientious. Conservative, and distant. In many respects, his life has reached a standstill, but he is ready for one last effort to re-take dominion over the world.

JULIE SHAFFER: Julie is a younger executive. On the rise. A true business prodigy. Confident beyond her years, with still a touch of youthful vulnerability. Ambitious, independent, and attractive. Forward thinking. Pragmatic. Problem solver. Doesn’t defer to cultural norms, but isn’t quite as free as she’d like to be. Her father was Mr. Grenawalt's mentor.

THE DESK CLERK aka DEACON SIMON: He is young. This is his first job. Today he is the only employee at the Wake Robin Inn who could get to work during a driving snow storm. Self-gratifying, he is eager to get good customer reviews and earn a promotion. Aims to give people what they want – or at least what he perceives they want.

THE TRUCK MAN aka MR. TRUETT: Grizzled. Spends the life on the road with his wife. Self-righteous and unafraid to impose his self-righteousness on others. A vigilante for human decency. Prurient. Dogmatic. Committed to the overthrow of any worldly entitlement, except as it applies to him.

FAITH GRENAWALT, the WIFE OF BILL GRENAWALT: Played by the same actor as the truck driver…It will be clear to the audience (but not necessarily to the characters) that Bill’s wife is the same actor as the Truck Driver. Her name is Faith, and she is peeved. Looks for acknowledgement and companionship.

Show description: Inspired by Simon’s early experience as a junior writer for “Your Show of Shows”, the play focuses on Sid Caesar-like Max Prince—the star of a weekly comedy/variety show circa 1953 and his writing staff. Max has an ongoing battle with NBC executives who fear his humor is too sophisticated for Middle America. The play also reflects on political and social climates of the time such as the rise of Joseph McCarthy, censorship, and attitudes towards women. Seen through the eyes of Simon’s alter-ego Lucas Brickman, this is a laugh-a-minute comedy with characters loosely based on real life counterparts.

Characters:
Lucas Brickman is Neil Simon’s alter-ego and serves as the narrator of the play. A junior writer in the mid-20’s, he is at the start of his writing career and working to make a name for himself while experiencing the competition of the comedy writing world.

Milt Fields is a writer in the group. Aged 30’s-40’s. He considers himself the least talented of the group, although he is probably the wittiest of them. When it comes to humor, he values quantity over quality.

Max Prince is the host of the Max Prince Show at NBC. He is described as someone who is just “funny” without trying. He is like a general in the writing room. He exudes great strength, coming more from his anger than his physique. He is often monosyllabic—using a word or two to convey his thoughts. Although intimidating, there is a part of Max that genuinely and deeply cares about his staff.

Val Skolsky is the senior writer in charge of the group. Originally from Russia, he immigrated to the United States as a young boy, but never managed to shake his thick accent. He is easily the most politically aware of the writers.

Brian Doyle is the only ‘gentile’ writer of the group. He is Irish, in his 20’s-early 30’s, and a heavy smoker, cougher, and drinker. He has a biting sense of humor as caustic as his outlook on life.

Kenny Franks is easily the most sophisticated of the writers group. Now in late 20s-early 30’s, he is described as the “boy genius” who was writing jokes professionally when he was only fourteen.

Carol Wyman is the only woman writer in the group. She is late 20’s-early 30’s. Being the only woman, she has a strong and quick defense system to her personality. She is very mindful of the fact she is the only female writer, but is determined to be viewed as an equal among her peers when it comes to writing comedy.

Ira Stone is a hypochondriac. He is all energy with a touch of brilliant madness. He may be the most talented of the group, but is also the most frustrating to the rest. He is extremely self-centered, and possesses the ability to command the attention in a room the moment he enters.

Helen is the attractive young secretary (young-mid 20’s.) Eager to please and help the writers. She has writing aspirations herself, but has a lot to learn about the basics of humor.
