Auditions

The Carriage House Players are pleased to announce auditions for our 2019 Spring Season and Summer Shakespeare Festival!

Bachelorette by Leslye Headland

AUDITIONS HELD MARCH 16th FROM 10 AM TO 1 PM

Ten years out of high school, Regan, Gena and Katie convene in the luxurious bridal suite of their old friend, Becky, the night before her wedding in New York City. Fueled by jealousy and resentment, the girls embark on a night of debauchery that goes from playfully wasted to devastatingly destructive. Their old fears, unfulfilled desires and deep bonds with each other transform a prenuptial bender into a night they’ll never forget. A wicked black comedy about female friendship and growing up in an age of excess.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN
*Note: Calling performers of all races, ages, genders, and backgrounds. ALL ROLES ARE OPEN.

PROSPERO – The deposed Duke of Milan and wizard extraordinaire. He lives out his life in exile on the island with his daughter, Miranda, commanding the natural forces with his mastery of magic.

MIRANDA – Prospero’s daughter. Though she has some vague memories of her time at court when she was a toddler, in the main she has no recollection of a life other than being isolated on an island with no company but her father and Caliban. She quickly falls in love with Ferdinand when he arrives. Miranda’s perceptions of other people tend to be naïve and non-judgmental. She is compassionate, generous, and loyal to her father.

ARIEL – An airy spirit bound in service to Prospero and impatient for their release. Mischievous and ubiquitous, able to traverse the length of the island in an instant and to change shapes at will. They carries out virtually every task that Prospero needs accomplished in the play.

CALIBAN – The savage son of the witch Sycorax, native to the island. His speech and behavior is sometimes coarse and brutal – and sometimes eloquent and sensitive.

FERDINAND – The Prince of Naples. Alonso’s son. Cast up on his own on the island after the wreck, he is convinced that his father has drowned, not least by Ariel’s songs. He quickly falls in love with Miranda.

ANTONIO – Antonio is Prospero’s scheming brother. Power hungry and foolish. He usurped the throne of Milan from his brother with Alonso’s help, willingly abandoning the sovereignty of the Dukedom to Naples.

ALONSO – The King of Naples. An enemy of Prospero’s, he accepted Antonio’s proposition to help the latter usurp Prospero’s throne in return for Antonio’s swearing Milan’s fealty to Naples. A reflective man, he ultimately regrets his role in the usurping of Prospero.

SEBASTIAN – The brother of Alonso and comrade of Antonio. Like Antonio, he is both aggressive and cowardly.

GONZALO – A wise older man, and an honest counselor of King Alonso’s. Gonzalo’s speeches provide an important commentary on the events of the play

STEPHANO – Alonso’s comical butler. He has something of a taste for liquor, and is well-served when he is cast upon the shore with a butt of wine that he held onto to avoid drowning.

TRINCULO – Alonso’s jester. He is a coward and is delighted to have Caliban subservient to him. He has a taste for finery as well as for liquor, and plans to help Stefano become king of the island.

FRANCISCO – A lord in Alonso’s suite. He attempts to comfort the King with the hope that Ferdinand may be alive, but is unsuccessful. He is intrigued by the vanishing of the spirits at the feast. This actor doubles as other supporting roles in the play.

ADRIAN – A lord in Alonso’s suite. He appreciates the climate of the island where they have landed, and questions Gonzalo’s scholarship. This actor doubles as other supporting roles in the play.

SUPPORTING ROLES, including: BOATSWAIN, MASTER, and MARINERS. SPIRITS of the island, including IRIS, CERES, and JUNO.
