AUDITION NOTICE:

Announcing Auditions for Highland City Arts Council’s production of the Pulitzer, Tony, and Olivier Prize winning play, Dancing at Lughnasa to run October 26, 28-30, November 2 at the Highland Community Center Directed by M. Chase and Brooke Hess Grant.

Brooke is currently finishing her Theater degree from Utah Valley University, and will pursue a career in secondary education as a Drama teacher. Brooke most recently directed an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Nights Dream that performed at the Dell in Stratford-Upon-Avon, England at the request of the Royal Shakespeare Company.  Chase recently graduated with his M.F.A. in Staging Shakespeare from the University of Exeter in the UK. While in England Chase had the opportunity to train and perform at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London. Brooke and Chase have directed several shows together in the last decade, and are excited to begin this new project!

Auditions will be held Tuesday September 1st and Friday September 4th from 7:30-10:00 p.m. at the Highland Community Center at 5378 W 10400 N in Highland by Mtn. Ridge Jr. High with Callback at the same location at 12:00 on Saturday, September 5th.

Please direct all questions to jordan.michael.long@gmail.com

All roles are open.

Kate Mundy (30-40) F
Kate is the eldest of the Mundy sisters and behaves as a Mother figure as a result.

Maggie Mundy (25-35) F
In place of a career, Maggie acts as the chief family homemaker. Throughout the play she is revealed as serving a deeper purpose as the “joker” of the family, defusing tensions as they arise.

Christina Mundy (20-30) F
At 26 years old, Chris is the youngest of the Mundy sisters, and, like Maggie, has no paid job. Gerry Evans fathered her son, Michael, seven years ago and is seen as walking in and out of their lives as he chooses.

Rose Mundy (25-35) F
Rose is 32, but behaves much younger than her years, due to a developmental disability.

Agnes Mundy (25-35) F
Agnes is quiet and contemplative, knitting gloves with Rose whilst also helping to keep the house in order; along with Maggie.

Michael Evans (6-12) M
Michael does not appear onstage as an adult, but his presence is alluded to by the other characters, while the adult Michael speaks his lines from the side of the stage. As a child, Michael is seen as being surrounded by love, since all five of the sisters dote on him. Michael also acts as a narrator, not only dictating the action as it goes on, but revealing the futures of the other characters in the play.

Gerry Evans (25-40) M
Gerry Evans is initially portrayed as an intensely negative character, particularly by Kate, for having left Chris after fathering her illegitimate son, Michael.

Father Jack (45+) M
Jack is in his late fifties. He had left home as a young man to work as a missionary in a leper colony in Uganda.

Dancing is set in Ireland’s County Donegal in August 1936, around the festival of Lughnasa, the Celtic harvest festival, in the fictional town of Ballybeg. It is a Memory play told from the point of view of the adult Michael Evans, the narrator. He recounts the summer in his aunts’ cottage when he was seven years old. The play depicts the late summer days when love briefly seems possible for three of the Mundy sisters (Chris, Rose, and Kate) and the family welcomes home the frail elder brother, who has returned from a life as a missionary in Africa. However, as the summer ends, the family foresees the sadness and economic privations under which they will suffer as all hopes fade. The play takes place in early August, around the festival of Lughnasa, the Celtic harvest festival.
