Next Auditions for the Rochester Community Players:
The spring 2016 production of The Irish Players, a program of the Rochester Community Players, will be Conor McPherson’s drama, The Seafarer. Auditions will take place at 6:00 PM (an hour earlier than usual for our auditions) on Sunday November 29 and Monday, Nov. 30. Callbacks, if needed, will be December 2 at 7 PM. The production will be directed by Jean Ryon, and auditions are at the Ryon Studio in Anderson Alley, 250 N. Goodman Street, Suite 217. Directions are found on the Venues page of our website.
The cast calls for five middle aged males. The production will be staged at MuCCC Theater March 18 to 27, 2016. This production will also be staged in Milwaukee at the Acting Irish International Theatre Festival sometime the last week in May.
As described on Wikipedia, “the play centers on James "Sharky" Harkin, an alcoholic who has recently returned to live with his blind, aging brother, Richard Harkin. As Sharky attempts to stay off the bottle during the holidays, he contends with the hard-drinking, irascible Richard and his own haunted conscience.” For further information please call Jean Ryon at 802-9034.
All's Well that Ends Well:
Our April 2016 Shakespeare production will be directed by Cece McFarland. We anticipate auditions in early December. More information will be posted soon.
