Auditions for an evening of One-Act Plays.  Roles available for actors ages 15 and older.  Auditions will consist of cold readings assigned by the directors.

One-Acts include "The Dancers" by Horton Foote and ‘Variations on the Death of Trotsky’ by David Ives., a short farcical one act in the style of a Monty Python sketch. 

About "The Dancers"  Horace, a boy of sixteen, is visiting his sister who has arranged a date for him with Emily Crews, the prettiest and most popular girl in town. Horace discovers that Emily is being forced by her mother to go to the dance with him; and in great humiliation he leaves. He finds himself in a soda fountain where he meets Mary Catherine,. The two lonely young people are drawn to each other.

A Coupla Bimbos Sittin' Around Talkin'

Monday, January 13 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM.  Performances in March. 

Roles for 4 women.  Please prepare a monologue.

 Linda, B.B. and Nancy are sunning themselves in their backyard in Queens waiting for their boyfriends to take them away for a four-day holiday. They're going to fix up a fourth male with Nancy's cousin, Tess, a conservative "college girl." When Tess arrives, she's repulsed by the Barbie doll hairdos and tight outfits the girls from Queens are wearing. However, Tess is given a lesson when she finds out that the three girls are anything but ill-informed. As the stunned Tess is transformed by Linda, B.B. and Nancy into their look-alike, she listens to them debate the Hundred Years War, the poll tax, the Franco-Prussian War, the Battle of Waterloo and Napoleon—their usual conversation when they're away from their insecure men! Tess gains immeasurable respect for the three girls and hopes that she doesn't come off too dumb, since she doesn't know who won the Franco-Prussian War. But more important, she stops making judgments based on superficial evidence.
