“Dinner with Friends” Auditions Announced

by Donald Margulies
Directed by Tina Thronson

This Pulitzer Prize winning play is a bittersweet look at the marriages of two couples who have been friends for years. The play shifts back and forth over almost fifteen years as we meet the characters at the beginning of their relationships and later as we see the impact on both couples when one of those marriages goes sour.

PLEASE RSVP to providenceplayers@cox.net to let us know you are coming and on which dates.  

HOW WE WORK: As space allows, you will be able to watch all the auditions. You may be asked to go into the hallway with audition partners and work a bit on a scene. We will do our best to get you up multiple times reading for parts you are interested in. You will also be asked to read for other parts you may not be auditioning for. The Providence Players strives to make our productions open to interested and engaged actors & actresses, regardless of their level of experience. We try and make our auditions as relaxing and fun as possible.

AUDITION PROCESS: Auditions will consist of readings from the script – No monologue required. I would recommend that auditioners have a familiarity with the script and, if possible, have an audition partner with whom they have practiced.  [If unable to bring an audition partner – no problem – I will be mixing and matching as well.]

AUDITION SIDES: Sides for the audition process will be supplied each evening.

AUDITION FORM: Resumes and headshots will be accepted, but are not required.  Each auditioner will be asked to fill out a form for consideration.

MEMBERSHIP: The Providence Players of Fairfax is a membership organization. Membership is not required to audition. If cast, actors in addition to production team members will be asked to become members of the Providence Players ($10) for the season (if they are not already).

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION:  I am looking for the way actors convey who their character is and how actors relate to other “friend[s]” onstage.  I remain open to the age range I will choose for the cast – which is dependent upon who auditions and what combinations work best to serve the script.  I look forward to meeting you and seeing some of your work.
