Auditions: Friday, February 11, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Friday, February 11, 2011.

Things have slowed down a bit today, but I know there are lots of projects casting this weekend and next week! Please feel free to share your audition experiences and success stories with the community!

Wondering where the Seattle auditions have disappeared to? I received feedback that it may be helpful to separate the locations since many in the Portland area hope to solely book work here.
Check out my new blog for Seattle area auditions here!

If you are a fan of the blog, please share this with actor friends. If you have any feedback for me on how to improve my blog, share this with me so that I may work on improving the blog.

Welcome to the cabin of Norman and Ethel Thayer. They have returned to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. He is a retired professor, nearing eighty, with heart palpitations and a failing memory- but still as tart-tongued, observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman , delights in all the small things that enrich their long life together. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her fiance', who then go to Europe , leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the "grandchild" the elderly couple have longed for and shows Norman he still has a few things to learn. Join us on the Pond, to glimpse the sometimes choppy waters of facing one's own Autumn beside those we love and still struggle to understand. Contains some adult language and themes.

Rehearsals will begin Sat. March 12th, performances run May 6th-29th.
