SEX WITH STRANGERS
By: Laura Eason
DIRECTOR: Stephen Nachamie
DATES: starts rehearsals: 8/29/17 – closing performance: 10/15/17
Olivia is a novelist with writer’s block looking for solace and inspiration at a mountain B&B. There, she meets the very lively – and hunky -- Ethan and as the snow flies so do the sparks. Snowbound with no Internet access and no TV, what are two attractive, highly charged people to do but get it on? In the morning, Olivia discovers that Ethan is a blogger with very different ideas about privacy, publishing and her past work. As time passes, the two wrestle with the consequences of their wild weekend and when they meet again, they confront their conflicting worldviews and reckon with their fate.
SEEKING

OLIVIA
(late 30s-early 40s female) Any Ethnicity. Intelligent, literary, serious and skeptical with a dry sense of humor. Very attractive but her self-confidence and libido are asleep. Once awakened, she’s a force. Sexy. Fun. To play this conflicted woman, the actress has to have depth, charm, anger all while being at home in comedy, her sexuality and body. Brief nudity.
ETHAN
(mid 20s male) Any Ethnicity. High energy, charismatic, physically buff. An extrovert who turns out to have surprising depth (but it’s not apparent immediately). Funny. Sexually charged. Wicked smart. Completely comfortable in his body. Lives in a physical universe. Thinks and talks fast – he’s a blogger and it suits him. Always in the moment. Brief nudity.

To make matters more complicated, both are each other’s secret pen pal, but don’t know it. When George discovers that Amalia is his literary soulmate, he begins to see her in a new way – which paves the way for true love to triumph. This Tony Award winning musical has been called, “one of the most charming musicals of the American theatre” for its lovely score and wonderfully developed characters. (The story served as inspiration for movies, The Shop Around the Corner and You Got Mail).
Note: the role of Arpad Laszlo is cast.
SEEKING
AMALIA BALASH
(25-30 female) C4-B5 – Attractive, bright, nervous and charming. Strong-willed but prone to worry. Love literature and looks forward to finding a love who shares her love of books and ice cream.
ILONA RITTER
(25-early 30s female) Latina. F#3-E5 – Sexy, charming, good natured young working woman. Well put –together, flirtatious, she has a history of bad relationships and wants to find someone who really cares about her. Must have strong dance skills.
LADISLAV SIPOS
(40s-50s male) African American. A2-E4 – Affable, huggable fatherly clerk in the store. George’s best friend and confidante. He’s too nice to ever rock the boat, but he’s dedicated and a good friend.
STEVEN KODALY
(30s-early 40s male) B2-A4 – Dapper and good at his job, Kodaly is really a cad: a wolf in sheep’s clothing. A peacock and womanizer who can be extremely charming and persuasive. Successful salesman but vain. This is a fun, showy part that requires movement dexterity.
GEORGE NOWACK
(late 20s-mid 30s male) B2-F4 – Hopelessly romantic and winning, George is a good guy that can get by-passed by showier types like Kodaly. George is intelligent, responsible, practical – and a bit of a dreamer. In other words: the kind of guy that makes a great life partner. He’s shy in all things romance but is capable of deep feeling and love.
MR. MARACZCK
(50s-60s male) B2-C4 – A rather commanding presence, he’s the owner and proprietor of the shop. Hard-working. Natty. Kind, but overwrought. Fatherly, but his suspicion and jealousy make him irrational. He is a faithful, loving husband who knows his wife, whom he adores, is having an affair. Blinded to the truth, he gets the specifics all wrong and wreaks havoc on the shop and his own health.
HEADWAITER (50s) – Baritone or Tenor (will double as Customer and Caroler – on Chorus contract with Principal added) Imperious. Impeccable comedian. Dry. This is a scene-stealing part for the right comic actor/singer.

BLITHE SPIRIT
By Noel Coward
DIRECTOR: Maggie Mancinelli-Cahill
DATES: starts rehearsal March 13, 2018 – closing performance April 29, 2018.
Synopsis:
The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic from the playwright of Private Lives offers up fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting "happy medium", one Madame Arcati. Despite Charles’ best efforts, he cannot get rid of Elvira, who continues to cause mischief and mayhem, ensuring that this ill-fated triangle remains together for eternity.
Note: The role of Madam Arcadi is cast.
Seeking:

EDITH
(20s-30s female) – The Condomine household maid. Mild-mannered, Shy, Unassuming and incredibly funny. Requires impeccable comic timing. She sees everything and we experience the “haunting” through her as she is overtaken by the spirit world. English country accent.
RUTH
(40s female) Charles' current wife. Attractive. Smart, but not worldly. A wonderfully capable and charming wife and hostess. She dotes on Charles, making his world comfortable and pleasant. A gardener with the tastes perfect for an English cottage and quiet life. English accent.
ELVIRA
(40s female)- Charles' late wife. Glamorous. Selfish. Wickedly attractive and seductive. The center of every party. Sophisticated and flirtatious, incapable of fidelity – but very fun. Utterly judgmental and lavish in all aspects of her tastes. High English accent.
CHARLES
(50s male)- husband to Ruth and, before her passing, to Elvira. Handsome, successful writer. Urbane. He newly minted calm demeanor has developed since his marriage to the practical and loving Ruth. During his first marriage to Elvira, he was a nervous wreck – made even worse now that she’s a spirit popping up everywhere. Actor needs to have great comic timing and experience with physical comedy in the vein of 30s movie comedies. His reserved exterior gives way to a host of near debacles at the hand of the ghost, Elvira, that require physical dexterity with a sense of great fun. High British accent.
