Impossible Marriage
by Playhouse 2000

Apr. 22 - Apr. 23

Twenty years ago, just about the same time as Doug and Susan Balentine were founding Playhouse 2000, Texas native and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Beth Henley premiered a modern take on drawing room comedy – the type made famous by Wilde and Coward. The result is a 21st-century comedy of manners that explores of the foibles of modern marriage among the polite class. It’s sophisticated comedy for a smart audience.

 


 

Director Jeffrey Brown will be looking for a group of 3 women and 4 men of varying ages at auditions on Sunday and Monday, April 22 and 23.  Times are 2:30 and 6:30, location the VK Garage Theater.

We will read from a provided script - no advance preparation is necessary.  Perusal copies are available for a three-day check out at the Cailloux Box Office or the P2K Office inside the VK Garage Theater.

Roles available include:

  • Kandall Kingsley, 50's or so, the somewhat proper Mother of the bride,
  • Floral Whitman, 30's, the pragmatic, pregnant Sister of the bride,
  • Pandora Kingsley, 20's, the flighty, flirty bride,
  • Jonsey Whitman, 30's, Floral's too-attentive husband
  • Reverend Jonathan Larence, almost any age, the officiant at the wedding, and other complicating factors
  • Edvard Lunt, 50's, the groom
  • Sidney Lunt, 20's, the groom's disapproving son.

The entire play takes place in Kandall's garden on her country estate near Savannah - or maybe Austin - and will be "played in the round."  

Auditions for Playhouse 2000 shows are roughly 8-12 weeks prior to the opening weekend of the show. Everyone is invited to audition, but we do our best to work very professionally. Actors should expect approximately 6 weeks of rehearsals. A full rehearsal schedule is typically available after auditions.  Auditioners for each show are only expected to attend one audition session unless specially informed about call-backs.

Fill out the form on the Playhouse 2000 website for any P2K show you are interested in auditioning for.  Thanks.
