Open – A Christmas Story – 1445504
08-29-14 – Kansas City, MO>Little Rock, AR – A Christmas Story – Kids Audition

Synopsis:
It’s 1940, in the northern Indiana town of Hohman. 9-year-old Ralph “Ralphie” Parker wants only one thing for Christmas — an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model BB rifle with a compass in the stock. Between his younger brother Randy and having to handle school bully Scut Farkus, Ralphie doesn’t know how he’ll ever survive long enough to get the BB gun for Christmas. When Ralph asks his mother for a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas, she says, “No, you’ll shoot your eye out”. When Mrs. Shields, Ralph’s teacher at Harding Elementary School, assigns the class to write a theme about what they want for Christmas, Ralph sees a golden opportunity to express his desire to have a Red Ryder BB gun. Ralph gets a C+ on the theme, and Mrs. Shields has written “You’ll shoot your eye out” on the theme. Ralph’s next plan is to ask Santa Claus for a Red Ryder BB gun, and how does Santa respond? By saying “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid.” By this time, Ralph has had enough of that. When Scut Farkus and his sidekick Grover Dill start in on Ralph while he’s on his way home from school that day, Ralph knocks Grover Dill to the ground, beats Scut’s face bloody, and then pounds Scut’s head on the snow-covered ground several times. Ralph thinks he’ll never get the BB gun for Christmas now. And all of the other kids are going to be getting what they want for Christmas. But someone may have planned a surprise for Ralph.

Auditions -neil Simons The Odd Couple – 1443843
08-21-14 – St Louis, MO>Kansas City, MO – Affton CenterStage Theatre Company presents Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple (Female Version)

Neil Simon’s famous update of his contemporary classic starts with a group of women friends playing their regular game of Trivial Pursuit. They meet at the apartment of Olive Madison, a divorcee who freely admits to being a slob:”I leave a mess when I read a book.” Late to arrive is Florence Unger, a stickler for detail who would try the patience of a saint, and who has unfortunately just become separated from her husband. As life would have it, the slob and the stickler decide to room together — with hilarious results!

Within days, Florence’s obsessive habits start taking their toll on Olive and their friends. The only remedy Olive can think of (a pair of brothers from Barcelona) disastrously backfires, and the two women are forced to agree on one thing –even the best of friends sometimes make the worst of roommates.

CTI Dr. Jekyll Mr. Hyde Audition – 1443775
08-21-14 – Kansas City, KS>Kansas City, MO – “DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE” by Jeffrey Hatcher
Presented by City Theatre Of Independence
Directed by Dean E. Mehling

AUDITION INFO:
This minimalist play is designed to be performed by six actors; four men and two women. One actor plays “Dr. Jekyll” and no other role, and one actor plays “Elizabeth” and no other role. All four of the other actors – including the other woman – double, with each playing “Hyde” at some point. If deemed appropriate, we may cast more than 6 actors.

This production will rely heavily on very creative acting choices to achieve the appropriate level of tension. The various “Hydes” all represent different desires; all of which are offensive to civilized society. You may be asked to work outside of a normal comfort zone, and there is also a violent murder onstage. There is a fairly intimate moment between Hyde and Elizabeth. This is NOT a children’s fairy-tale. The timid need not audition – we will, however, gladly accept other support from you if you wish to be involved!

Auditions will mostly consist of readings from the script – cuttings will be available on the website one week before. Seeking physicality and versatility by necessity. Please feel free to try various British accents, but we may elect to do none.

PRODUCTION DATES: October 30, 31, November 1, 7, 8, 9, 2014. — Project Type: Live Event
