2016 – 2017 Auditions

 Mary and Myra by Catherine Filloux | Directed by Fran Pruyn | Performances: 10/28/16  – 11/12/16

In the summer of 1875, Mary Todd Lincoln (the President’s widow) resides in an insane asylum, sent there by her only living son. Her progressive friend Myra Bradwell (America’s first woman lawyer) arrives to help Mary gain her release by exposing the injustices of her trial. But Myra’s motives and Mary’s sanity are both up for debate, as they grapple with their pasts and their perceptions of freedom and womanhood.

Two roles available:

MARY TODD LINCOLN, age range – 50′s, the widow of President Abraham, Lincoln; Kentucky accent

MYRA BRADWELL age range – 40′s, America’s first woman lawyer; a prominent figure in the “woman suffrage” movement; sterling New England background

Eleemosynary by Lee Blessing | Directed by Jeremy Chase | Performances: 2/24/17 – 3/11/17

Eleemosynary probes into the delicate relationship of three singular women: the grandmother, Dorothea, who has sought to assert her independence through strong-willed eccentricity; her brilliant daughter, Artie (Artemis), who has fled the stifling domination of her mother; and Artie’s daughter, Echo, a child of exceptional intellect—and sensitivity—whom Artie has abandoned to an upbringing by Dorothea.

Three roles available:

DOROTHEA – age range 50′s

ARTIE – age range 30′s

ECHO – teens

Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson | Directed by Mark Fossen | Runs 4/28/17 – 5/13/17

The true story of 19th century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt plays out against a landscape of fierce sisterly love, early feminism, universe-revealing science, and a time when humans were called “computers.”

Five roles available:

HENRIETTA LEAVITT– 30s, brilliant, meticulous, excited

MARGARET LEAVITT – 30s, homebody, creative, sweet, sister

PETER SHAW – 30s, the head astronomer’s apprentice… and the man

ANNIE CANNON – 40s, the leader, terse and sure, grows into a firebrand
