COMING UP NEXT - THE DROWSY CHAPERONE
AUDITIONS FOR Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
AUDITIONS: Feb 26 @ 3:00 and Feb 27 @ 6:30
Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
Set in the present, in a lovely farm house in Bucks County, Pennsylvania where adult siblings Vanya and Sonia reside in their old family home, mourning their lost dreams and missed opportunities. When their often-wrong, fortune-telling maid warns of impending dangers, 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 a lot of broken mugs. With wit and absurdity, Christopher Durang’s Vanya and Sonia and Masha and 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.
Vanya*: adult male 40’s-60’s
Resigned to his life, more or less, at least compared to Sonia, although somewhat disappointed with it.
Sonia*: adult female 40’s-60’s
His adopted sister living with him at the family homestead. Discontent, upset, regretful, insecure especially about her looks.
Masha*: adult female 40’s-60’s
Their sister—a glamorous and successful self-involved actress who goes gallivanting around the world and is used to getting her way!
Spike: male 20-30’s
An aspiring actor, sexy, self-absorbed, Masha’s new companion. Extremely comfortable with his body and does not mind showing it off!
Cassandra: female, any age or race
Cleaning lady and soothsayer. Some comedic timing and specific delivery of lines required.
Nina: younger female, late 20’s-30’s
Lovely, sincere would be actress, visiting her aunt and uncle next door. Star struck and energetic with a truly good soul.
