MARVIN’S ROOM by Scott McPherson
Performance dates: February 10 through March 4, 2012
Directed by Dalene Young

Drama Desk award winner for Best Play. A hilarious and wondrous story of one woman’s commitment to loving her family first and her belief that giving such love has made her life unbelievably rich, even as she faces her own pain and loss

Roles available:
1. Dr. Charlotte – female, 35-50 yrs., assertive, but compassionate psychiatrist, head of mental institution for youth (small part).
2. Retirement Home Director – female, 35-50 yrs., proper, pleasant, and P.C. (small part)
3. Bob – male, 40-50 yrs., brother of Dr. Wally, tries to please, but socially inept (small part)
4. Marvin – male, 60-70 yrs., Bessie and Lee’s aging father, unable to speak except in groans and giggles (small part). (Bob & Marvin will likely be doubled by the same actor.)
5. Other roles (Bessie, Lee, Ruth, Hank, Charlie, Dr. Wally) have been pre-cast.

Performance dates: April 6 through April 29, 2012
Directed by Tim Park

A lighthearted, joyful story of a lovable and zany family with a penchant for taking in all the strays of the world – animals, ducks, and people – whose paths cross theirs. A smart, quick-paced comedy that has been called “a small-cast ‘You Can’t Take It With You’”.

All roles available:
1. Adonis Samaritan – male, 50-65 yrs., quirky, compassionate cab driver, willing to ‘give you the shirt off his back’ (main role)
2. Mina Samaritan – female, 50-65 yrs., bustling, rotund, sharp-tongued ‘Jewish-Armenian-Christian’ mother (main role)
3. Alicia Samaritan – female, 18-30 yrs., frustrated, but loving daughter, embarrassed by her parents’ lifestyle (main role)
4. Alvin – male, 18-30 yrs., off-the-wall folksong writer, with a serious inferiority complex, saved from self-destruction by Adonis (main role)
5. Cousin Lu – female, 40-70 yrs., a family ‘guest’, wisplike, with an exclamatory ‘Oh-h-h’ that the author describes as ‘the sigh of relief from a flatulent butterfly’ (supporting role)
6. Uncle Nemo – male, 60-75 yrs., an amnesiac family ‘guest’, who Adonis accidentally hit with his taxi 30 years before, and has stayed with the family ever since (supporting role)

NOTE: Auditions will be cold readings from the scripts. However, headshots, resumes, and/or monologues are welcome, but not required. (If you have a prepared monologue, you will be given the opportunity to share it as an additional basis for consideration.) All are welcome and no experience is necessary.

We also are recruiting crew positions (Stage Mgr., Asst., Stage Mgr., Lights & Sound technicians, Costumers, Props, Set Builders, Set Painters) for these productions. If interested in these areas, please attend the auditions.

Sandy Actors Theatre provides limited stipends to all cast and crew to cover expenses (travel, etc.)

About the adaptation
We are using the adaptation by Mark Healy.

His adaptation focuses more on the relationship between the sisters than the love interest--but of course that's still there! Most parts are written to be double cast with the exception of Elinor, Marianne and Willoughby. The result is that everyone cast gets a great role. The characters are real, not caricatures.

All week night rehearsals will be 6:30 to 10:00 with the possible exception of tech week 6:00-10:00. All Saturday rehearsals will be from 9:30 to 1:30.

1, 3, 14, 21, 22

Needed: female actor, roughly between ages 40-55 to play a non-singing, supporting role in an original rock opera broadcast on live TV.

The production will premier on Portland public access Sunday 12/4 (studio in Gresham). Full-cast rehearsals in SE Portland to start 11/4. If this goes well, there will be an additional live production in Portland-proper this winter.

Please include a head shot and/or video clip in your email response, if possible.
