AUDITIONS - 2018-2019 SEASON

Mainstage Production

Moon over Buffalo

By Ken Ludwig

Directed By Harriet Mittelberger

In the tradition of madcap comedy, this hilarious, fast-paced farce centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s, who have taken their run-down touring company to Buffalo. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with the company’s young ingénue, the couple receive one last shot at stardom. Everything that could go wrong does as the larger-than-life personalities of their family and supporting cast take center stage.

 

Performances March 1 - March 16

Auditions: Dec 3 & 4 at 7:00 pm, lower level of OTP

Marjorie Prime

By Jordan Harrison

It's the age of artificial intelligence, the year is 2050 and 85 year old Marjorie, a jumble of disparate, fading memories, has a handsome new holographic companion that looks like a younger version of her deceased husband and who's programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. What would we remember and what would we forget, if given the chance? This richly spare, wondrous play explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits - if any - of what technology can replace.
