Play It Again, Sam Auditions

Wheaton Drama announce auditions for Play It Again, Sam which will be held at 111 N. Hale Street in Wheaton, July 19 and 20 at 7:00 p.m. Callbacks, if necessary, will be held July 22. Auditions will be by appointment only and auditioners should contact the Director, Randall Knott at: [email protected] for an appointment time.

Auditions will be readings from the script, with a “hired” reader.  All auditioners will have an excellent scene partner with which to work.  Chosen sides will be made public by July 10.

Looking for 5 actors to play the following characters:

Allen Felix (M) – late 20s/early 30s.  Woody Allen wrote this role for himself.  While it is not necessary to be a physical match for Mr. Allen, it helps.  Actor must also be to understand the rhythm in Woody Allen standup.

Bogie (M) – Humphrey Bogart.  Must look and act like Humphrey Bogart.

Linda Christie (F) – Late 20s/early 30s.  Diane Keaton originated the role, which was written by her then-lover.  The wife of Allen’s best friend.  She’s a lot like Diane Keaton.  AT

Dick Christie (M) – Late 20s/early 30s.  Uptight investment real estate guy who doesn’t pay his wife enough attention.  Also Allen’s best friend.

Nancy/Sharon/Sharon Lake/Gina/Vanessa/Go-Go Girl/Intellectual Girl/Barbara (F) – Late 20s/early 30s.  One woman will be playing Nancy (Allen’s ex-wife) and all the other female roles.  The conceit is that every woman Allen tries to date…winds up looking like his ex-wife.  In reality, most of these roles are quite small, and bringing a volunteer in for rehearsals seems counter-productive to that volunteer’s time.   This actor will have a LOT of stage time, and really stretch their abilities, however.  And…they will stretch their ability to change clothes/wigs VERY quickly.  This will be a fun challenge.
