We are pleased to announce the selection of
The Collegiate Sisterhood of Lake Pawtuckaway
by Peter Ullian,
one of three plays written by him for the Forward Phoenix New Play Project, as our final show of the 2014 – 2015 season.
Over the Fourth of July weekend, a group of college friends gather at a secluded lake house. On the weekend that would have marked their first anniversary, Honoré has invited her friends to be with her as she mourns the loss of her spouse, Sammie, whose mysterious disappearance was believed to be a swimming accident at the lake house. Delia is writing a screenplay and cajoling her friends to play parts written for them in a movie she hopes to record and edit on her iPhone. Lindsey can’t understand why the others are upset that she has brought her boyfriend, who happens to make great sandwiches.
The very nature of reality is brought into question when Honore experiences a supernatural encounter and unexpected visitors bring startling revelations. A comedy/drama about identity and the nature of love, The Collegiate Sisterhood of Lake Pawtuckaway asks if love can transcend not only mortality, but reality itself.
Auditions for Lake Pawtuckaway will take place on Wednesday, February 4th from 5 – 8 pm. The director has asked each auditioner to come with a 1 – 2 minute dramatic or comedic monologue from a contemporary play. It is preferred that this monologue be memorized and prepared for the audition. If absolutely necessary, you may carry the script in your hand. Actors will sign up for a five minute time slot. Callbacks will take place on Thursday February 5th from 5 – 8 pm and Friday February 6th from 3:30 – 6:30 pm.
At these auditions, actors will also be considered and cast for staged readings of two additional plays written by Peter Ullian for the Forward Phoenix New Play Project: Fair City and Pan American.
Peter has requested that anyone auditioning for Lake Pawtuckaway read the script prior to auditions. In order to make that as easy as possible, all majors and minors have been emailed a link to a dropbox folder where they can view the script online. Anyone who is not a Theatre major or minor who would like to audition and/or read the script should contact the Theatre Chair, Kaoime Malloy at firstname.lastname@example.org for the link to the dropbox.
Signup sheets and additional information will be posted Monday, 1/26 both here and on the Theatre Department Callboard outside the Scene Shop.
