CALIFORNIA SUITE: A COMEDY BY NEIL SIMON

Auditions: December 3 and 4, 2018 | (2 Men / 3 Women)
Neil Simon (America’s most successful comic playwright) was at the peak of his career when he wrote this collection of four one-act plays, all recounting different stories taking place in a suite at the legendary Beverly Hills Hotel. The characters range from an estranged couple (one an easy going Southern Californian, the other a dyed-in-the-wool New Yorker); a married man with an unexplainable girl in his bed; an Oscar-nominated actress and her gay husband; and two couples whose friendships begin to disintegrate under the strain of vacationing together.

 

SHOWTUNE: A CELEBRATION OF THE WORDS & MUSIC OF JERRY HERMAN

Auditions: December 5 and 6, 2018 | (3 Men / 3 Women)
No single composer in the American Musical Theatre has given Broadway audiences more pleasure in the past 60 years than Jerry Herman. If you can sing and dance, SHOWTUNE provides a gold-mine of musical treasures to perform, including songs from MILK AND HONEY, HELLO DOLLY!, MAME, MACK AND MABEL and LA CAGE AUX FOLLES. It’s not surprising that Alan Jay Lerner dubbed Jerry Herman “The Irving Berlin of our generation!” For performers who sing and dance, this show is a gift!

 

GOD OF CARNAGE

Auditions: March 25 and 26, 2019 | (2 Men / 2 Women)
This powerful play by Yasmina Reza earned both the Olivier Award in London and the Tony Award in New York as “The Best Play of the Year.” Two couples are brought together when their children have a violent encounter on a school playground. Hoping to avoid legal action, the two couples agree to meet and resolve the matter in a civilized manner. We soon see just how thin the veneer of “civilization” can be as the couples find themselves in an emotionally charged battle to justify and defend (first) their children’s behavior and (then) their own. [Note: These couples each have an eleven-year- old-son.]
