Auditions for Tuck Everlasting

May 19, 2019

Rehearsals begin week of: September 24, 2019
Performance run: October 18-December 1, 2019

SEEKING:

WINNIE FOSTER to play 11; too skeptical for her age, but with an unknown longing for romance and adventure. Must sing very well and be a strong actress with sharp comedic timing. Winnie is the protagonist of the show and drives the story forward, so the actress must have a commanding presence.

JESSE TUCK to play 17; youngest son of the Tuck family, and he embodies the energy and lightness of youth, but the lightness is tempered by an eternal loneliness.
Pop tenor - must sing very well.

MILES TUCK 23 years old; a bitter man whose natural sweetness was shut away when he lost his wife and child. Doomed to live with regret.
Baritenor - must sing well.

MAE TUCK The matriarch; a powerful presence but a gentle mother, whose maternal instincts take over when Winnie enters their world.

ANGUS TUCK The patriarch; struggling with the lifestyle the Tuck's are forced to live, but rejuvenated when he meets Winnie. A warm figure with a presence as big as his heart.

NANA a loopy old woman, but a loving grandmother and mother. A little over protective.

MAN IN YELLOW SUIT the antagonist; creepy and persuasive, a man with an obsession and a secret.

CONSTABLE Hugo's father. Seemingly a buffoon, his simple manner belies a sharp wit and kind heart.

HUGO  to play 17; Junior deputy of Treegap. Painfully shy, awkward, and goofy, but smart and eerily observant. His father (Constable Joe) knows this, and the two of them have a "routine" that fools most of the people all of the time.

Local, non-union only.  All performers paid. 
Performers under the age of 18 y/o will be seen for the role of WINNIE FOSTER only.
Virginia Repertory Theatre is an equal opportunity employer. Performers of all ethnicities, races, gender identities,and (dis)abilities are strongly encouraged to audition.

Auditions for Small Mouth Sounds

June 29, 2019

Cadence Theatre Company and Virginia Repertory Theatre are seeking actors for their upcoming co-production of Bess Wohl's adventurous new play Small Mouth Sounds, directed by Laine Satterfield.

Please direct all questions about this audition to cadencetheatrecasting@gmail.com

Rehearsals begin February 4, 2020 for a March 7, 2020 opening. The show runs through March 29, 2020 at Theatre Gym. Local AEA and non-union actors are welcome. We are unable to provide housing or transportation for actors cast in this production. All actors paid.


Synopsis:
Six strangers escape city life for a silent retreat in the woods to confront their inner demons. But the vows of silence that seemed so attractive to them at the outset become constraints when they recognize the achingly human need to connect. At times wildly funny, at times deeply moving, this "quiet gem of a play" (Charles Isherwood, New York Times) shows how silence can often speak volumes.

Note: This play is almost entirely devoid of dialogue, but there is plenty of communication through body language, movement, and facial expressions.


SEEKING:

THE TEACHER – (any gender, any ethnicity, age range 40+) The leader of the silent yoga retreat, and the guru to whom the other six characters are drawn. The Teacher is only ever heard, never seen, throughout the course of the play, and as such has most of the play's sparse dialogue. While they present a calm, all-knowing persona to their students, it becomes clear that they may not be as in control as they would like. Has an accented way of speaking, which could be affected or foreign. And. Pauses a lot at. Odd moments.

JOAN – (female, any ethnicity, age range 45-55) A therapist and sex educator in colleges, high schools, and with couples in private counseling. Wears a lot of clothing and jewelry from India. An avid practitioner of yoga. Judy's partner.

JUDY – (female, any ethnicity, age range 45-55) Top art department editor at O Magazine. Sleeps very little, sends and receives lots of emails, and likes to be in control. Not very interested in spirituality, but madly in love with her partner Joan. Note: This role requires smoking on stage.

ALICIA – (female, any ethnicity, age range 30-35) From Southern California. Makes a lot of noise even when she is "in silence" by fidgeting, wearing loud jewelry, breathing loudly, etc. Maybe she's just blissfully unaware, maybe she likes to be watched. Very new to spirituality. Note: This role requires partial nudity.

NED – (male, any ethnicity, age range 40-50) A recovering alcoholic who turned to spirituality after a bad luck streak that would rival the Book of Job. He has finally saved up enough money to go on this particular retreat with this particular teacher, whom he greatly admires. Note: This role requires partial nudity.

RODNEY – (male, any ethnicity, age range 30-40) Ageless, fit, gorgeous yoga instructor from the Pacific Northwest who now teaches in New York and the Hamptons. He has a sizable following on YouTube. Wears a lot of man-jewelry, but he's pulling it off. Note: This role requires full nudity.

JAN – (male, caucasian [Scandinavian], age range 50-60) A Lutheran pastor on a one- year sabbatical to study religious life around the world. Sweet, friendly, with a continually curious air about him. Found religion later in life after a personal tragedy. Note: This role requires smoking on stage.


Auditions are by appointment only. To arrange an appointment, contact cadencetheatrecasting@gmail.com, and send a headshot/resume. No phone calls, please. Please bring a hard copy of your headshot and resume to the audition as well. Those auditioning should prepare a contemporary monologue, no longer than one minute in length.

Auditions will be held on Saturday, June 29 from 10 a.m. -1 p.m. at Virginia Rep's Theatre Gym (114 West Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23220). Callbacks will be held on Sunday, June 30 from 10am-1pm at the same location.
