"Dearly Departed" Auditions

Theatre in the Grove is auditioning for men and women ages 25-70.

Theatre in the Grove announces auditions for the southern comedy DEARLY DEPARTED, written by David Bottrell and Jessie Jones, and directed by Zachary Centers.

Audition dates are Monday, August 15th at 7:00 p.m. and Tuesday, August 16th at 7:00 p.m., at the Theatre, 2028 Pacific Avenue in Forest Grove. Performance date are Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00pm, and Sunday afternoons at 2:30pm, opening October 7th and running through October 23rd.

This zany show will need men and women ages 25-70. Auditions will consist of reading from the script. All roles are volunteer.

In the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt, the beleaguered Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. Despite their earnest efforts to pull themselves together for their father’s funeral, the Turpin’s other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion: Firstborn Ray-Bud drinks himself silly as the funeral bills mount; Junior, the younger son, is juggling financial ruin, a pack of no-neck monster kids, and a wife who suspects him of infidelity in the family car; their sister, Delightful, copes with death as she does life, by devouring junk food; and all the neighbors add more than two cents. As the situation becomes fraught with mishap, Ray-Bud says to his long-suffering wife, “When I die, don’t tell nobody. Just bury me in the backyard and tell everybody I left you.” Amidst the chaos, the Turpins turn for comfort to their friends and neighbors, an eccentric community of misfits who just manage to pull together and help each other through their hours of need, and finally, the funeral.

Theater Director sought (Portland)

Authored a script that was most recently performed at the Shanghai Repertory Theater. Currently seeking to have the script performed in the Portland.

The script is a short ONE ACT play (10 pages and performance time is about 10 minutes long). It requires TWO ACTORS: one male, one female. Elaborate set designs, props, and wardrobe are unnecessary. In fact, the script demands a minimalist setting. Dialogue is poet & stylized, requiring precise rhythmic timing from the actors. There is some dance-like movement that is also an important componant of the scripted performance.

This one-act would make a great addition to an evening of several short plays being performed, or a festival series of short plays.

If you are currently seeking original work to direct, act, produce, ect. please contact me for more information.
