Are your preparing for an audition? Do you open this week? Are you taking a break and catching up on your reading?

I'm in rehearsal for 'Three Men on a Horse'. We open in a month. I play Mabel, the small-time mobster's girlfriend. I have an audition for 'Greetings' at another theater in a week, but I am afraid there will be too many conflicts between the two plays for me to be cast. There is only one roll I'm right for, but I don't know how big it is (haven't seen the script yet). We'll see!

I don't know that play, or Greetings. Who are they by? As I said in the other post I just got back from Maine. I was there for a month doing 'The Nerd', 2 weeks rehearsal, 2 week run, great fun. When I got back I rehearsed for 2 weeks to do a short play in a short play festival down on the New Jersey shore. I belong to a small Equity company there called New Jersey Repertory Co.. Other that that I've been submitting for jobs and reading the plays I've submitted for if I haven't already read them (perhaps this post belongs in the other topic) I'm reading 'The Price' which is being done in NJ and then I plan to read David Edgar's Pentecost which is being done down your way I think, Burning Coal Co.?

Our upcoming school season looks fantastic: the college is producing "All In the Timing" and "The Pillowman," both very exciting, and there'll be one student-directed production of "Frozen." I'm auditioning for "Pillowman" and "Frozen," and I hope to get a stage manageing position for "All In the Timing"

They're doing Frozen at The Warehouse Theater here in Greenville. I hear it's great and can't wait to see it.

I have an audition for Dial M for Murder next month, otherwise it's been really slow for women's roles around here. So much stuff is pre-cast lately.

This is my first post on this really wonderful website.

I am an actor and a theatre administrator. My library consists of hundreds of plays. I used to (literally) read a play or two a night.

The theatre I work for is currently producing A. R. Gurney's THE FOURTH WALL. It's wonderful.

I will promise to look at this group daily. What fun!

I just got back after recovering from a 24-hour play project; It was the funnest thing I think I have ever done! I was cast for a two-man show that lasted about twenty minutes. I seriously recommend experiences like this to every actor! I made great connections and had a wonderfully exhausting time!

I'm new here too!

I'm in between projects at the moment, I just finished a run of Charlotte's Web and I'm coming up on (I hope), a 7-month run of interactive improv/historical portrayal in conjuction with a massive Titanic exhibit that's coming to my area in two months..

But it's nice to have a break once and a while ...it hasn't been a long enough break for me to start pining or worrying just yet.

I just finished a run of THE MOUSETRAP, and am about to begin a Dostoevsky adaptation in short order. Trying to enjoy the busy - it won't last! :)

I just started rehearsal for "Dial 'M' for Murder". I LOVE this role! I still can't believe I beat out the best actress in town for it and I still can't believe it's MINE!!!

It's kind of quiet out here on the West Coast, both for theatre and film right now. But I have a summer of Shakespeare to look forward to in Eastern Ontario, with Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night's Dream playing in rep.

I'm new to this site and I think it's fabulous. I'm spending way too many hours inputting my books, cursing the fact that I own so many old ones without ISBN numbers! (But secretly love how many books I have that NO ONE else on here has got... at least not yet!)

Rats, rats, rats, rats, rats!!!

I just found out that I DID NOT get Rosalind in As You Like It in the Upstate Shakespeare Festival. I got Celia, which is still a great role, so I'm just being a baby about it. I will finish pouting by the time we start rehearsals.

On the up (or more up) side, opening night for Dial 'M' for Murder went wonderfully. We got a great review ( http://www.greenvilleonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2007704140341 ) and we've had full houses all weekend.

Bookishbunny,
Celia is my favorite role in AYLI - she gets to be wry and sarcastic, and also heartbreaking. Her speech to Rosalind about banishment? Makes me cry every time.

I'm playing Phebe this fall, and though I'm really happy to be cast in such a funny role, part of me wishes I could have been Celia...

Actually, I just started studying my role, and I do like it better! I'm really excited about the project now. I'm hoping to get a little dance solo out of it, too! I don't know where it's would go, but I have a crazy director.

Actually, my latest project is my baby daughter. I've been too busy being a stay home dad to audition for anything.

I've been more focused on my jewelry and dance, lately. But there is an audition coming up in a few months that has sparked my interest. It's for The 13th of Paris.

I am working on new audio book project
IT'S TIME by Pavel Kostin

ISBN 9781907832215

Set on the shores of the Baltic Sea, on rooftops lit with mesmerizing orange sunset and in the darkest corners of urban night. We find real characters there with depth and ideas searching for direction in their fragile lives and learning to express their ideas through art.

The projects you two mention sound interesting, and, like most creative endeavors, engrossing as well.

I turned down two recent calls for theater auditions (one for a chestnut holiday musical that is a throwback to radio and the 1940s, and the other for Death of a Salesman) to get three of my own plays finished. They are all musical theater pieces, so they are extremely intricate and involved. But . . . I'm determined to get these works-in-progress finished. The other project lies in an altogether different field (psychology), but involves a pioneering figure whose work is truly groundbreaking and without parallel.

Strangely, however, the two projects don't conflict -- but end up adding a refreshing contrast and even energy to each other.
