GILFORD — Auditions will be held on Wednesday, May 28, for the Streetcar Summer Series. All 6 of the proposed shows are one-act plays. Auditions will be held from 6:30 – 8 p.m., at the Methodist Church in Gilford.
Again this year's performances will be held at Pitman's Freight Room, New Salem Street, in Laconia. Streetcar is scheduled for two Tuesday evenings in August – the 5th and the 19th. Rehearsal schedules and locations will be determined at the discretion of each director.
Shows being performed are "Blind Date" which features one male, one female, ages from mid 20-30. This is being directed by Doug Embree.
There will also be a love story, "The Latest News from the Primordial Ooze", with again one male, one female, 20-30's. The director for this show is Kristine Snow.
Peter Ayer will be directing a scene from "The Importance of Being Earnest". He needs two men, mid-20's – mid 30, and an older woman and a younger woman for his scenes.
"Dinner With the McGuffins" may sound familiar to some of you as it was rained out a few years back. This one features a family. The patriarch could be played by any male between 30 – 50. Mrs. McGuffin should be in the same age group. They have a teenage son, approximately 16 years old. His girlfriend should be the same. Grandpa is in his late 60's and could be played by a male between 50 and 80. There are also 2 FBI agents, who can be portrayed by actors anywhere between 20 and 70. Leigh Webb will be the director for this show.
"Unsinkable" is about the Titanic and requires two males, two females - one older, snooty, rich married couple, one ship's officer of undetermined age, and a maid. Kristine Snow and Doug Embree will be co-directing.
We are also looking for singers, dancers, and other performers to round out the evenings.
SKYT, Streetcar Kids Youth Theater, will also be holding auditions, which will be announced at a later date and will be held separately. They will be performing their one-act play, which is about the four seasons, at one of the performances.
