Auditions at RTG for Whimsical Romantic Comedy
RACINE, WI—October 16, 2013—Open auditions are being held at the Racine Theatre Guild on November 4 and 5 for “Almost, Maine” by John Cariani, a funny, warm and whimsical romantic comedy set in a small, mythical community. “Almost, Maine” plays at the RTG, 2519 Northwestern Avenue (Highway 38) in Racine, on three weekends, from January 17-February 2, 2014.
“Almost, Maine” is filled with comic and poignant tales that take place on a cold, clear winter night, while the Northern Lights hover above a tiny, remote town. As the evening progresses, nine couples experience the joys and perils of romance: the first spark, heartbreak, falling in love, breaking up, discovering you’re soul-mates, or that it just wasn’t meant to be. But the bruises heal and hearts mend—almost—in this magical, touching, funny and hopeful midwinter night’s dream.
The cast will consist of four to six adults, ranging in age from 20s to 40s. All of the actors play multiple roles. Every role is open. Kate Kowbel is the director. In addition to actors, production crew volunteers, with or without experience, are always needed.
To audition, simply report at 7 p.m. on either Monday, November 4, or Tuesday, November 5, to the lobby of the Racine Theatre Guild, a nonprofit community (amateur) theatre located at 2519 Northwestern Avenue. Appointments are not being taken. Auditions consist of cold readings from the script. Scripts are available in advance and may be checked out of the box office with payment of a refundable deposit.
For further information, call the box office at 262-633-4218, go to the website (www.racinetheatre.org), or visit the RTG any weekday between noon and 6 p.m.
