The Cow Bay Theatre Company has set Sunday, December 16th 2012 from 2 to 4 PM and Tuesday, December 18, 2012 from 7 to 9 PM for open auditions for its January 24 and 25th production of Pulitzer Prize-winner, A.R. Gurney's hit play, “Love Letters.” Auditions on both dates will be held in the Hagedorn Room of the Port Washington Public Library. There will be an encore performance of “Love Letters” on Saturday, January 26 at a place and time to be announced.
Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, play is focused around the correspondence of Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III. It follows the two characters through their nearly 50-year bittersweet relationship. Since the characters are reading from letters, there will be no need for lengthy memorization. Melissa is a lively, unstable artist and Andrew is a staid, dutiful lawyer. There will be three casts of four persons. Each cast will consist of a young Andy and a young Melissa in the first act to be followed by a more mature Andy and Melissa in the second act.
Those interested in securing an audition time-slot are directed to an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org as promptly as possible. Auditions will be scheduled and seven-minute increments. If anyone who wishes to audition and has a preference for a specific time window, please include that information as well. While the Cow Bay Theatre Company will do its best to accommodate requests; otherwise, individual audition times will be established in the order requests are received.
