Olney Theatre Center is in the process of casting Jennifer Hoppe-House's exciting new play, BAD DOG, and are searching for local DC-metro area actors to fill the following roles:
Female, 50-70, Latina.
Walter’s second wife, about 65 years old. Uneducated but defiant in all her opinions, she sorely lacks a warm bone in her body, even when she attempts to nurture. She works hard to look the part of a country club wife (while denying her Latin roots). Her role is to be Walter's wife; she worked hard to get the job and her life is devoted to it. She's uncomfortable around his daughters—they don't get her and she doesn't get them—but she makes awkward attempts at cordialness.
Male, 25-50, Latino or mixed race.
Must be non-Equity.
One versatile actor of color plays 3 dynamic roles (cop, lawyer, and contractor) of varying ethnicity.
National Players is Olney's ten-actor non-equity touring ensemble, performing a repertory of shows and educating audiences around America. We are in the midst of our search for the members of Tour 67! The contract for Tour 67 (A Midsummer Night's Dream, Julius Caesar, and A Tale of Two Cities) runs 11 months, from mid-June 2015 to mid-May 2016.
In classic touring fashion, actors also operate all backstage and offstage elements. While a technical background is not required, the desire to hone one's craft on- and off-stage is an essential component for all Players. Decades of alumni have gone on to successful careers in Hollywood, on Broadway, and throughout America's regional theatre markets, and we're looking forward to working with our next ensemble.
Auditions for Tour 67 will be held in 2015 on the dates listed below. Auditions consist of two Shakespearian monologues, each no more the 90 seconds.
January 25th: Washington, DC, Catholic University of America
February 6th-9th: Memphis, Tennessee, United Professional Theatre Auditions.
February 13th: Chicago, Illinois, DePaul University
