LORT 2014 SEASON
By Carey Crim
Contract Dates: May 5-June 15, 2014
A former English teacher, 40's. Married to Leigh. Handsome, bright, charismatic and a little cocky. We see him first as a joyous and brilliant family man and then, after he is convicted of having an inappropriate relationship with one of his students, as a man who is haunted by doubt, need, and pain and who wants desperately to find a way to get his old life back.
A nurse, 40's. Married to Tom. Warm, smart, attractive, quietly strong. She struggles as her belief in her husband, and ultimately all the choices of her life come into question. Her strong exterior masks deep doubt and pain underneath.
A History teacher, 40s. A man’s man. Married to Jayne. A failed writer. Teaching is his fallback career. He wants to be a good friend to Tom, and tries to find ways to make life seem “normal” after Tom’s conviction.
Owns a yoga studio and organic shop. 40's. Married to Bruce. A good mother who means well. But underneath her caring exterior is a judgmental and suspicious streak.
Tom and Leigh's son, 16. Angry, tortured and full of angst. Experimenting with drugs. He’s lived his whole high school life in the shadow of his disgraced father. But he has a sweet soul, if only given the chance to show it.
By Tom Stoppard
Contract Dates June 2-July 23, 2014
Charismatic Leading man with highly developed classical and comedic skills. 45-50, and also appears as his 80 year old self Tall, Urbane, Witty – a Stoppardian version of Algernon in Importance of Being Earnest. A very long and complex part – Wildean / Shakespearean level language complexity. Low comedy too.
The perfect Butler - even more perfect since he is working in the British Consulate. 50-60 Flawless (high) dialect, manners, and poise. Extremely skillful with high comedy and elegant language, but equally important - slapstick and eccentric dancing a plus.
Extremely charismatic. Charming, boyish, genius. 30-40. An artist of radical sensibilities, passionately political. Also he is very much in the elegant world of Importance of Being Earnest when required. Dancing and Singing and low comedy required. He uses a "funny Romanian dialect" at first, but mostly - high British.
Irish, Brilliant, a Genius. Censorious. 35-45 . Extreme facility with language. Also with crazy comedy. Dancing and some experience with easy magic tricks, a plus
25-35 (match with Tzara) A version of the Oscar Wilde GWEN from Importance of Being Earnest – but also a very engaged and passionate free-thinker. Attractive, Smart, Elegant - but also capable of Carnality and Lustfulness. Partial Nudity required. Extremely expert with language and highly developed comedic skills
30 (also appears as her 80 year old self) No nonsense, very political. Extremely attractive. Passionate socialist. Gifted amateur level strip-tease. Partial nudity required (she briefly bares her breasts), and Victoria’s Secret type underwear for one sequence). Elegant. Extremely expert with language and highly developed comedic skills.
47 years old. Stern, Magnetic, Russian dialect. Also a clown
Lenin's wife - late 40s. Tall, brilliant, sympathetic and sweet natured. Russian dialect
MY LIFE IS A MUSICAL
Book, Music and Lyrics by Adam Overett
Marlo Hunter —Director/Choreographer
Music Director TBA
Contract Dates June 30-August 31 2014
Male, 30. A shy and bookish accountant, the earnest straight man constantly surrounded by a wacky musical comedy. He has always kept his feelings to himself, but throughout the show learns to open up in a big way. Ability with physical comedy a plus. Tenor/bari-tenor (to high Bb).
Female, late 20s - early 30s. The manager of an indie folk-rock group. Outgoing, feisty, determined and tough, but also a vulnerable, passionate idealist. Believes very deeply in this group and will do anything to help them succeed. Thinks she’s a terrible singer herself, but is actually (from Parker’s point of view) incredible. Soprano with very strong belt/mix (to high D).
Male, 20s. The lead singer of the group. Very sexy in a cool, indie-rock way, he wants to be the tortured artist, but is not as deep as he’d like you to think he is. A poser, but utterly likable. High rock tenor (to C).
Male, 40s-50s. A music journalist who thinks he’s a film noir detective. Takes his job very seriously. Must be great with deadpan – think Leslie Nielsen in Naked Gun. Baritone/bari-tenor (to G).
