Play It Again, Sam Auditions

June 6th, 2015

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: samwdi2015@gmail.com 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.
