Rehearsals will begin in late February, and will generally occur on weeknights.

All roles are non-Equity, non-paid.  Headshots & resumes are not required, but are gladly accepted.  No appointments are necessary.  No monologues are necessary.  Auditioners will be given time to study and then read a brief scene from the play.

Character breakdown: Age ranges are for the look of the character, not necessarily the age of the actor.  Actors auditioning need to be able to convincingly portray that age range.  Casting for the following roles:

Spike: (20s)  An extremely attractive, sexy would-be actor who is Masha's current boy-toy.  Spike is very sweet, friendly, comfortable with his body (he loves having people look at him and is never happier than when he can strip to a Speedo).  Spike is not terribly bright, and also a very bad actor.

Cassandra: (30s - 50s)  Vanya and Sonia's housekeeper.  Cassandra is very opinionated, energetic, and happens to have flashes where she sees into the future.  She is an avid practitioner of voodoo and uses her skills to help Vanya and Sonia hold on to their family home.

Nina: (20s)  An attractive aspiring young actress who is in awe when she meets Masha, a famous movie-star.  Like Spike, Nina is very sweet and nave, but unlike Spike she is rather intelligent.

The roles of Vanya, Sonia, and Masha have been cast.

Actors will be given time to study and then read a brief scene from the play.
