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.

See below for a breakdown of this year's Grand Guignol Scripts:
Grand Guignol is a French style of theatre also known as "the theatre of terror." It is a theatrical style that was the basis of modern day horror, and has been being produced by Third Eye Theatre for the past three seasons. Third Eye Theatre's Grand Guignol is always composed of at least four one-act vignettes, and one notable M.C. in what might be best described as live, horror, cabaret. So, come join our M.C. Monsieur Guignol for a roller-coaster ride of comedy and horror in our new play, modern Grand Guignol series.

Grand Guignol 4: Psychosis is composed of four world premiere one-acts. The Faith Healer by Matt Hanf is a comedy about two women and their quest to heal what ails them. Bedford's Sty by Daniel Guyton is a thriller about what happens when Bedford, a disabled man, and his caregiver, when Bedford realizes the past while cleaning his room. Operation Midnight Climax by Ron Burch is a dark comedy about the war inside one man's head when he is drugged against his will. The Mistaken Lover by Martha Patterson, is a classic Grand Guignol horror about what happens when one man suspects his wife of cheating.
