Auditions for Glengarry Glen Ross
CAST is holding AUDITIONS for the Staged Reading of our 2012-2013 season, Glengarry Glen Ross, by David Mamet, winner of the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
About the Play
This scalding comedy, which was adapted into a film in 1992 and revived on Broadway in 2006, presents parts of two days in the lives of four desperate Chicago real estate agents who are prepared to engage in any number of unethical, illegal acts—from lies and flattery to bribery, threats, intimidation, and burglary—to sell undesirable real estate to unwilling prospective buyers, in a never-ending scramble for their share of the American dream.
Warning: This is a David Mamet play; expect strong language. CAST theatre located at 215 Cascade Ave in beautiful downtown Hood River.
Auditions will be held Aug. 20th and 21st at 6:00 p.m. at CAST theatre.
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Actors are encouraged to read the script in advance, if possible. There will also be various scenes available to borrow and return at the Gallery desk at Columbia Arts.
This is an open audition, no one has been pre-cast.
There will be up to 20 rehearsals for this show.
Directed by Judie Hanel. Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French.
The cast consists of seven adult men of various ages.
- Rick Roma - A big shot real estate salesman. Roma is the top name on the board at the office and most successful currently.
- Shelly Levene - Sinking desperately in tragic quicksand. Shelly “The Machine” Levene was successful years ago in real estate; now in danger of being fired.
- John Williamson – Sales Manager. Oversees the operations in the office and assigns the salesmen their leads. He is a ‘company man’.
- Dave Moss - Tough, crude, and too bitter to play well the hand he’s been dealt. George Aronow - Frustrated and meek, depressed but accepting, he is needy – but still has common sense. Also in danger of being fired.
- James Lingk – Customer. We meet him drinking alone. Sensitive, malleable to others and deeply flawed.
- Detective Baylen - Experienced, no-nonsense cop.
- Mitch and Murray – The two bosses who never appear in the play but whose dark cloud reigns over the office. Staged readings are performed using the script. Each actor will be required to know his part extremely well but not required to memorize it.
