A THOUSAND CLOWNS

Dir.: Kyle Fabel

Author: Herb Gardner

Mainstage:$760/week plus housing and trans

1stRehearsal: 6/25;Open: 7/16;Close: 7/28


SEEKING:


Nick Burns:12. Smart, funny, and deeply neurotic just below the surface. Abandoned by his parents at a young age, he has spent his childhood growing up in New York's West Village in his Uncle Murray's apartment. Comic timing is essential.


Arnold:40s-early 50s. Murray's older brother. A talent agent. He shares Murray's sardonic wit, but only up to a point. He is the kinder, gentler, wiser brother. He cares very deeply for Murray and his support is key to Murray's salvation.



THE PUPPETMASTER OF LODZ

Dir: Brian Roff

Author: Gilles Segal

Unicorn Theatre:$600/week plus housing and trans

1stRehearse:5/28/12.Open: 6/21.Close: 7/7.Re-rehearse: 9/10.Open: 9/13.Close: 9/30


SEEKING:


Finkelbaum:40s, he carries the weight of his experience during the war and in the camps in ways both obvious and subtle. He is clearly broken and survives only by the playfulness of his imagination. He is in many ways the archetypal sad clown, and the slapstick is just as important and as the darkness underneath. There may not be joy for him, but there is definitely fun and amusement. He should be the kind of actor that is fascinating to watch doing the most mundane of things. Puppet skills helpful.


Popov/ Spencer/ Weissfeld/Weissmann:

30s-40s, character actor to play four roles. He should be charming, sharp and articulate, a bit of a villain. He is fueled by his quest for justice and will get it at all cost.. Takes himself very seriously.


The Concierge:

40s-50s, female, she should be sympathetic and on the simple side. She really means well but definitely has no idea how to connect with Finkelbaum.


Schwartzkopf:

40s, has also been through the camps, but came out much more grounded than Finkelbaum. He’s incredibly compassionate, and we should like him and trust him instantly.



HOMESTEAD CROSSING

Dir.: Kyle Fabel

Author: William Donnelly

Co-production with Merrimack Rep and Portland Stage

$600/week plus housing and trans

Rehearse: (Berkshires): 7/16.Open: 8/7.Close: 9/1

Rehearse: (Merrimack): 9/4.Open: 9/6.Close: 9/30

Rehearse (Portland):10/22.Open: 10/30.Close: 11/18


SEEKING:


Claudia:20s. Smart, but not necessarily book-smart. She's volatile and somewhat unrefined, and her flashes of intellect are jarring. Grew up in foster homes. A natural sex appeal. Language skills and smart comic timing are vital, as she drives much of the play's action.


Tobin:20s. Cool. Sexy. Pot-smoker. Somewhat adrift and ineffectual, but means well. Not dumb, but not Claudia's equal intellectually.
