A Classic Theatre Will Hold Auditions For RIPCORD
Auditions for ACT's production of Ripcord by David Lindsay-Abaire will be held on Sunday October 14 at 1pm and Friday October 19 at 6:30 pm in Unit #105 at Portman Plaza, located at 2085 A1A South, St. Augustine Beach.
Actors are requested to bring a photo and resume, and Director Deborah Dickey will have actors read scenes from the script, and actors with prepared monologues are welcome. The production will have six performances at the Lincolnville Museum and Cultural Center on Feb. 22-24 and Mar. 1-3, 2019. A few rehearsals will be scheduled before the holidays, and a full schedule will begin in January.
A Classic Theatre presents this wonderfully, heartfelt production of RIPCORD in its St. Augustine Premiere. It is the tale of two roommates who should not be in the same state, much less the same room!
Pulitzer-prize winning playwright, David Lindsay-Abaire, has created a play of high-stakes hilarity and has said, "Once the play started to take shape, I realized that I was writing something that was harkening back to some of the great comedies about two characters of a certain age really going at it with each other. Those plays are really funny, but what I loved about them was that they were incredibly human. They had big throbbing hearts in the middle of them."
RIPCORD draws you in as each character tries to rip the other to bits, and then invites the audience, and anyone who experiences this story, to embrace the idea of being present and joyful, because life is going to end whether you like it or not.
This ensemble piece requires six versatile actors, some of whom will take on multiple roles including:
Abby Binder: (60's-70's) sarcastic, intelligent, prefers reading, and to be left alone!
Marilyn Dunne: (60's-70's) friendly, active, cheery, prefers Sudoku, and social activity!
Scotty: (30's-40's) a resident aide who keeps the peace
Benjamin: (30's-40's) a long lost relative (multiple roles)
Colleen: (30's-40's) Marilyn's daughter (multiple roles)
Derek: (30's-40's) Marilyn's son-in-law (multiple roles)
