Audition call for Snapshots
Princess Theatre is pleased and proud to announce the world premiere
of Snapshots, written by long-time Prosser resident SueEllen Davis. SueEllen will direct her one-act play and will conduct auditions for
the 11 roles in mid-April.
Of her play, SueEllen says, “In short vignettes, the audience will see communication working and not working. The play has varied settings, including a funeral home, a job fair, and a first date. The ‘snapshots’
have a bit of comedy, a bit of drama, and a lot of real life.”
Auditions will be Sunday and Monday, April 16 and 17 in The Green Room; doors will open at 6 PM. They will include cold readings from the script and acting exercises. Scripts are available until April 10 for a
three-day checkout, on a first-come basis, from Mid-Columbia Libraries Prosser Branch, 902 7th Street.
The characters are:
Mr. Asher: 50+, big bombastic, and used to getting what he wants when he wants
Ms. Flint: 30s-40s, plain-ish, no nonsense
Casey Fortus: 20-30, pretty, desperately looking for a job
Kate: 20-40, pretty and wholesome looking
Mr. Largesse: Think of him as a used car salesman stereotype, who happens to be in the coffin business
Man: 30-40, thinks he’s a nice guy, everybody’s friend
Emily Meadows: 70+, frail; walks with help of a cane or walker
Mick: 20-40, Abercrombie meets REI, sincere
Harry Johnson: If Largesse had a sleazier cousin, this would be him
Waiter/Roommate: waiter - bit of a snob, but efficient; roommate - casual, loyal, upbeat; male or female
Woman: 30-40, tightly strung and slightly paranoid.
Rehearsals will be Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings, with an occasional Wednesday or weekend if needed. Performances will be one weekend only: June 2 and 3, at 7:30 PM.
