Doubt Auditions

Audition Notice for
Doubt by John Patrick Shanley

Open auditions for Stage One Inc.’s production of Doubt: A Parable by John Patrick Shanley, directed by Michael Chase.

January 10 at 3 PM & January 12 at 6 PM *If you can’t attend either night and still wish to audition please email producer Mike Stalsberg at Mike@StageOneWi.org

At the Janesville Performing Arts Center • 408 S Main St, Janesville, WI. • JanesvillePAC.org

The Story: This intense drama is set in fictional St. Nicholas Church School in the Bronx during the fall of 1964. Sister Aloysius, the principal at St. Nicholas, begins to doubt the integrity of her parish Priest, Father Flynn, when she learns that he has met privately with one of Sister James’ students. This amazing play inspires us to think deeply about important topics like faith vs. skepticism, traditional vs. progressive education, abuses of power, religious repression, integration in the 1960s, and, of course, the unsettling nature of doubt.

All roles are available:

Sister Aloysius – The head nun and principal of St Nicholas School. In her 50s or 60s, she is watchful, reserved and unsentimental. She’s a no-nonsense, hardened administrator, determined to maintain order and tradition.

Father Flynn – A new priest at St. Nicholas. His background is working class. In his 30s or 40s, he is well-liked and particularly popular with the boys that he coaches in basketball. He’s rather liberal and “modern” in his religious views.

Sister James – A young nun in her 20s who is an enthusiastic but inexperienced eighth grade teacher at St. Nicholas. She is reserved, but cares about her students and wants to think the best of everyone.

Mrs. Muller – The mother of St. Nicholas student Donald Muller. She is an African-American woman, late 30s to 40s, working class, weary and wary of the world. She has learned to accept what she has to accept and work with it.

All audition materials will be provided. The rehearsal schedule is flexible and will be generated following the casting of the show. Actors auditioning must be available on March 9, 10, & 11 (Tech week) for tech & dress rehearsals (6 PM – 10 PM).

Show Dates:
March 12, 13, 14, 20, & 21 at 7:30 PM • 15 & 22 at 2 PM (Presented in JPAC’s Gallery)

Doubt, A Parable: In this brilliant and powerful drama, Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the young Father Flynn of improper relations with one of the male students. “A beautifully balanced drama. Shanley is a writer working at the top of his craft, making the most of a muted but evocative palette in the pursuit of truth’s shadows. Here, for the first time in a long time, is a play that is about something.” —Chicago Tribune. Doubt is the winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award.
