Atlantic Stage is looking for talented men and women of all ages and ethnicities to perform in their ninth season. They are focusing on the season opener, but will be considering those who audition for other roles in our season as well.
Auditions will be held in their performance space at the Myrtle Beach Mall between Bath & Body Works and Victoria’s Secret. Auditions will be seen on a first come, first served basis from 6-9 pm on Wednesday, July 20th. They are requesting that you prepare two contrasting monologues totaling no more than four minutes in length.
The show, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike by Christopher Durang (9/29/16 (preview) 10/23/16) is the Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play. It is about middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia who share a home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives. Suddenly their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra, who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha.
Here is the Character Breakdown:
VANYA – Male, 50s – resigned to his life, more or less
SONIA – Female, 50s – his adopted sister, discontent, upset, regretful
MASHA – Female, 50s – his sister, glamorous and successful actress
SPIKE – Male, 29 or younger – sexy, self-absorbed, Masha’s new companion
NINA – Female, 20s – lovely, sincere, would be actress
CASSANDRA – Female, any age – cleaning lady and soothsayer
