The Dayton Playhouse is pleased to announce auditions for the comedy of manners, The Women to be held on Monday and Tuesday, January 23 & 24, 2017. Auditions will be at 7 pm each evening at the Dayton Playhouse, 1301 E. Siebenthaler Ave, Dayton, Ohio 45414. The director of this production will be Robb Willoughby. The play is written by Clare Boothe Luce. Performances will be March 10-19, 2017.
The Women is a 1936 American play. It is an acerbic commentary on the pampered lives and power struggles of various wealthy Manhattan socialites and up-and-comers and the gossip that propels and damages their relationships. While men frequently are the subject of their lively discussions and play an important role in the action on-stage, they are strictly characters mentioned but never seen.
The director will be casting 20 Women ages 20’s-60’s (good actresses of all shapes, colors and sizes, ten of these actresses will play “multiple parts”) and 1 Young Girl age 10-12. Those auditioning will be asked to read from the script. If possible, bring a resume and definitely be prepared to list all conflicts between January 23 and March 19. Questions should be sent to Robb Willoughby Willobee2000@aol.com.
