Auditions: Circle Players for “Glengarry Glen Ross”

 

GlengarryLogo

Circle Players will hold auditions for “Glengarry Glen Ross,” a scalding comedy by David Mamet. The play won the 1984 Pulitzer Prize and was nominated for four Tony Awards.

Small-time, cutthroat real estate salesmen try to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their fair share of the American Dream. Here is Mamet at his very best, writing with brutal power about the tough life of tough characters who cajole, connive, wheedle, and wheel and deal for a piece of the action -- where closing a sale can mean a brand new Cadillac but losing one can mean losing it all.

The play will be directed by John Dowgin and produced by Faith Dowgin, both from Spotswood.

Actors are needed for the following roles:

Ricky Roma (age 30-50)
Shelly Levene (age 50-plus)
James Lingk (age 20-60)
John Williamson (age 20-30)
George Aaronow (age 40 plus)
Dave Moss (age 30-50)
Detective Baylen (age 30 plus)

Auditions will be held at Circle Players, 416 Victoria Ave., Piscataway, at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 19 and Tuesday, Jan. 20.

Invited callbacks will be 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 21. Come early to sign up and fill out an audition sheet, and plan to arrive within the first hour of auditions.

Please be familiar with the play and be prepared to read several times if asked. Sides will be provided.

Show dates are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, April 17-May 2, with a 3 p.m. matinee Sunday, May 3.
