Season 71 (2018-2019)

Audition Date/Time: September 29 & 30, 2018, 2pm
Location: BLT Green Room

Needed:
Characters:
Mary Bennet:
22. Finally coming into her own, she is no longer the plain, boring girl she once was. She has a fire in her now. She is intelligent, curious, and lively, but her family only sees her as a future spinster. She does not suffer fools. She wants to live. British dialect.

Arthur de Bourgh:
25, a studious, unsociable only child who has never been around women or large families. He is a loner who prefers books to people. He has recently inherited a large estate and has no idea what to do next. British dialect.

Elizabeth Darcy:
24, married to Mr. Darcy. Confident, charming, and witty. She makes a fun and surprising lady of the house. She is best friends with her sister Jane. British dialect.

Fitzwilliam Darcy:
30; a loving, generous, and smart (if slightly stiff) husband. He is quiet and vigilant and thus sees what others often miss. He knows what being lovelorn is like. British dialect.

Jane Bingley:
24, married to Mr. Bingley. She is seven months pregnant with her first child and is sweet and optimistic as ever. The kindest heart in the house. British dialect.

Charles Bingley: 25; gracious, happy, and ever focused on the love of his life, Jane. A good friend and always ready with a smile. British dialect.

Lydia Wickham:
17, flirtatious, youthful, self-centered. Her marriage to Mr. Wickham is a sham but she will not admit this. She is the person you want to have at your party: energetic, engaging, unstoppable. British dialect.

Anne de Bourgh: 25; the only daughter of the late Lady Catherine de Bourgh. Lived in her mother’s very large shadow,
never having to ask for anything or speak for herself her entire life. Judgmental and impatient, just like
her mother. British dialect.

He finds himself surrounded by retired Military Veterans who frequent the shop every weekend to talk about the good old days. As he enjoys his Boston Crème and coffee in comfort, two boys show up and attempt to commit an armed robbery. What follows is a surprising turn of events which serves to remind us all that age should not be mistaken for vulnerability. And sweetness does not always come with cream and sugar.

The Story: When a complaint is filed against one of the 70,000 teachers in New York’s public schools, they’re sent to a Reassignment Center, one of a series of empty offices in the Department of Education Building. There, they sit and wait for their case to be reviewed. Usually for months. Sometimes for over a year. A claim of improper behavior by a failing student lands Evelyn Reid in “the rubber room,” where she encounters a group of teachers, some guilty, some not, who have long since lost any hope of returning to a classroom. Over the course of the school year, these colleagues form an unlikely alliance, reminding each other of forgotten passions, emerging to face life outside in unexpected new directions. They also learn French and workshop a screenplay.

The Story: It's 1942, and two of Hollywood's biggest divas have descended upon the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel -- assistants, luggage, and legendary feud with one another in tow. Everything seems to be in order for their wartime performance...that is, until they are somehow assigned to the same suite. Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and a lap dog named Mr. Boodles round out this hilarious riot of a love note to the classic farces of the 30s and 40s.
