Attention aspiring thespians! Dayton Theatre Guild will be holding auditions for the play Shining City from Nov. 30 to Dec. 1.
Directed by Ralph Dennler, the production opens Jan. 15 and will run for three weeks.
A recent review of the play:
In contemporary Dublin, Ireland, a man claiming to have seen the ghost of his recently deceased wife seeks help from a therapist. What begins as an unusual encounter becomes a struggle between the living and the dead in a game that will define both men for the rest of their lives. I was blown away…Conor McPherson’s new play is haunting, inspired and absolutely glorious.” Ben Brantley, The New York Times.
The production is looking for actors for these parts:
- John – 50’s – Haunted by his dead wife, struggling to get back to his normal life.
- Ian – 40’s – A novice therapist trying to help others while dealing with his own demons.
- Neasa – 30’s – Blue collar woman trying desperately to save a relationship and protect her new child.
- Laurance – 20’s – A male prostitute.
Four week, evening rehearsals are required, with a break for the holidays. Be prepared to give readings from the script.
