The show Runs June 10-26.The Gazebo – A writer of TV whodunits and whyzits, always with an eye toward inventing the almost perfect crime, gets into a spot where he has to commit a real do-it-yourself murder. His wife has become the target of blackmail, so the writer has to silence the so-and-so with a six shooter and then find a place to hide the body. Soon the house is crawling with detectives and district attorneys, all looking to point the finger somewhere, thus casting the writer in a role he never expected he’d have to play: the suspect.

Auditions for “The Snow Ball” August 22, 23 6:00-9:00 and August 27 10:00-1:00
The Snow Ball
by A. R. Gurney
Directed by Jerry Gietka
Produced by Jerry Gietka
Auditions for “The Snow Ball” are August 22 and 23 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM and August 27 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. All roles are open and set audition times are not required. Please prepare a monologue of your choosing. You will also be asked to perform a cold read from the script.
Rehearsal times are Sunday 2:00, Monday and Tuesday 7:00-9:00. Make sure you list all conflicts on your audition form. While it is Third Wall policy to work through listed conflicts (within reason) prior to Tech Week, casting an actor with multiple conflicts is at the discretion of the show director. Everyone is required at all Tech Week rehearsals. <span class=”text_exposed_show”>
Cooper Jones is a middle aged realtor whose failing marriage and career have made him nostalgic. Over the objections of his wife, Liz, a pragmatic no-nonsense type, he is persuaded by his old friend Lucy to revive a winter dance which was the high point of their youth. To that end, they plan to invite back Jack Daley and Kitty Price, a dream couple from those bygone times. In flashback, we see Jack and Kitty, young, oblivious to the passage of time as they dance through Cooper’s memory. In other flashbacks we see the characters as their teenage selves.
Gurney grew up in a world which obligated him for at least four years to go to a dancing school, where they were taught by the same man who had instructed their parents, on how to waltz, fox-trot, and rumba. Through dancing school, they learned how to bow to girls, offer them an arm, hold them carefully, and most importantly how to lead them around the dance floor. More than that, they learned how to respect and connect with girls. This play focuses on a young couple – a rich girl and a poor boy – who get very good at dancing, and the attempt, many years later, to bring them back to town so they can dance together one last time.
Cast: 8 Men, 8 women and 13 to 15 young men and women
Even though this is a show about ballroom dancing, the only characters that need to be proficient at dancing are Young Jack and Young Kitty. It would be nice if the others had some skill level but it is not necessary. Actual ages are not important. Most adults should look or be made to look as if older middle aged. The young people should be teenagers or able to look like one. These character descriptions are provided strictly for your use in making some choices when asked to create a character for your audition and for any interactions between actors. Character development will be primarily the creative responsibility of each actor. If you wish to be successful at these auditions, please, make a STRONG choice and carry it out. GO WAY OVER THE TOP!
Cooper Jones, highly stressed in his career and in his marriage. Yearns for the simpler times of his youth. Is on stage for almost every page of the script.
Liz, Cooper’s wife, has raised her family and now it is her time for life and career, leaving Cooper wanting.
Lucy Dunbar, Cooper’s FRIEND. Talks Cooper into helping to hold the Snow Ball (among other things) as a fund raiser to restore the old ballroom where they all learned dance as children.
Older Jack Daley, Cooper’s friend since childhood, now a successful politician.
Older Kitty Price, poor in health, agrees to one last dance.
Young Jack, ambitious, poor, becomes the best dancer in the class.
Young Kitty, rich, lazy, every young man’s dream girl. Together with Jack, dance well enough to be considered for touring professionals.
Multiple Speaking Parts:
Mr. Van Dam, the dance instructor and Baldwin Hall, Kitty’s husband.
Joan Daley (Jack’s wife), Barbara (ball guest) and Rhoda Radner (Saul’s wife).
Saul Radner (Cooper’s friend), Workman, Fritzi (adult guest at the ball).
Ginny Waters (ball guest) and TV Interviewer
Billy Wickwire (ball guest) , Cameraman, and Waiter
Calvin Potter (ball guest) , Musician and Waiter
Heather Healy (ball guest) and Waitress
Brewster Dunn (ball guest), Mr. Smithers and Workman
Mary (ball guest) and Others
Young Men and women in dance class, all have some lines.
Featured young people include:
