Audition Details for Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

Characters:
Vanya – 50s, living in Bucks County. Resigned to his life, more or less, at least compared to Sonia.
Sonia – His adopted sister, early 50s, living with him in Bucks County. Discontent, upset, regretful.
Masha – His sister, 50s, glamorous and successful actress who goes gallivanting around the world.
Spike – An aspiring actor, 29 or younger, sexy, self-absorbed, Masha’s new companion.
Nina – Lovely, sincere would be actress, early 20s, visiting her aunt and uncle next door. Star struck and energetic.
**Cassandra – Cleaning lady and soothsayer, any age, any race. PLEASE NOTE:  If you are auditioning for CASSANDRA, be prepared to do some improv.
 
Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is a comedy play written by Christopher Durang. The story revolves around the relationships of three middle-aged single siblings, two of whom live together, and takes place during a visit by the third, Masha, who supports them. They discuss their lives and loves, argue, and Masha threatens to sell the house. Some of the show's elements were derived from works of Anton Chekhov, but it’s a typical deranged Durang play – quirky, funny, touching, biting, filled with truth, laughter, life and love.  Familiarity with Chekov’s work is not a prerequisite. The play's setting is the family ancestral home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, located in a cherry orchard, and the theme is the possible loss of that home.

Sweeney Todd 1

September 21 - October 7, 2018     

One of the darkest musicals ever written, Sweeney Todd: A Musical Thriller is the unsettling tale of a Victorian-era barber who returns home to London after 15 years of exile to take revenge on the corrupt judge who ruined his life. When revenge eludes him, Sweeney swears revenge on the whole human race, murdering as many people as he can, while his business associate, Mrs. Lovett, bakes the bodies into meat pies and sells them to the unsuspecting public.
This is perhaps composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s most perfect score.

November 2 - November 18, 2018

Chekhov is alive and well in Buck’s County PA., where adult siblings Vanya and Sonia reside in their old family home, mourning lost dreams and missed opportunities. When their oft-wrong fortune telling maid warns of impending danger, and their movie star sister, Masha, arrives unexpectedly with young, sexy boy toy, Spike, the family is launched into a rollicking weekend of one-upmanship, exposed nerves and lots of broken mugs. Vanya & Sasha & Masha & Spike blends Chekhov's famous ennui with the modern day toils and troubles of celebrity, social networking and age into a laugh out loud comedy that will tickle your funny bone and stimulate your mind.
