Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike Auditions

Open auditions for Stage One Inc.’s production of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike by Christopher Durang, directed by Jim Stewart.

January 11 & 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 to schedule an alternate time

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

The Story: Vanya and Sonia have never left the confines of their childhood home in Bucks County, PA, while their sister Masha has been gallivanting around the world as a successful actress. A surprise visit from Masha and her 20-something boy toy, Spike, throws the normally quiet household into utter upheaval as its residents and visitors get swept up in an intoxicating mixture of lust, rivalry, regret, and the sudden possibility of escape. Some of the show’s elements were derived from works of Anton Chekhov, including several character names, the play’s setting in a cherry orchard, and the theme of the possible loss of an ancestral home.

All 6 roles are available:
Vanya – 40s-50s, living is Bucks County. Resigned to his life, more or less, at least compared to Sonia.
Sonia – (Vanya’s) adopted sister, 40s-50s, living with him in Bucks County. Discontent, upset, regretful.
Masha – Vanya’s sister, 40s-50s, glamorous and successful actress who goes gallivanting around the world.
Spike – An aspiring actor, 20s-30s, sexy, self-absorbed, Masha’s new companion.
Nina – Lovely, sincere would be actress, 20s-30s, visiting her aunt and uncle next door. Star struck energy.
Cassandra – Cleaning lady and soothsayer, any age.

All audition materials will be provided. The rehearsal schedule will be generated following the casting of the show (Usually 24 rehearsals). Actors auditioning must be available on March 7, 8, & 9 (Tech week) for tech & dress rehearsals (6 PM – 10 PM)

Show Dates:
March 10, 11, 12, 18, & 19 at 7:30 PM • 13 & 120 at 2 PM (Presented in JPAC’s Gallery)
