Auditions: ‘Eye of God’ for Circle Players

Circle Players will hold auditions for the next production of their our 2015-2016 season, “Eye of God”, a haunting dramatic mystery by Tim Blake Nelson, at 7 PM on Sunday December 13th and Tuesday December 15th.
The play is set in a small, dying Oklahoma town, where a young woman finally meets her beau: a just-released convict with whom she’s corresponded for three years. Her story weaves in and out of the memories of a weary detective investigating a grisly case in a nearby lake, and a broken, mute boy who may hold the key to the mystery.
Director Christie Leigh Carver of Bound Brook seeks actors and actresses to fill the following roles:

  • Sam Rogers – 40+ male; sheriff, lead investigator, weary from a long career trying to make sense of and bring order to the chaos humans inflict on each other; it is his memories that guide us through the play
  • Jack – 30′s male; charming and warm, an ex con who has devoted his new life to the bible and to Ainsley
  • Willard Sprague – 40′s male; parole officer, congenial, straight-forward guy trying to do his job while dealing with troubles at home
  • Tom – boy of 12-14; troubled and haunted, trying to find his footing in a life filled with pain and turmoil
  • Les – patrolman, 20′s-30′s male; second under Rogers, keen but inexperienced, hasn’t seen much more than a parking ticket before, nevertheless enjoys the authority of being senior officer
  • Del (also Voice 2 cop)- 20′s-30′s male; sees and hears everything from his vantage point of the convenience store in the center of town
  • Glen (also Voice 1 cop) – 20′s-30′s male; patrolman, green and eager
  • Lee – 40+ male; Ainsley’s boss, owns the luncheonette, curmudgeon
  • Ainsley – 20′s female; not worldly but not as uncomplicated as her naïveté and open manner would suggest
  • Dorothy – late 30′s-40′s; waitress, Tom’s aunt & guardian, strong and kind, somehow manages to maintain faith and keep her head up after all the pain and strife she has weathered
  • Janice – 20′s female; waitress, Ainsley’s coworker, young but tough and more world-wise than her friend
The director asks actors to bring a resume and be prepared to list any schedule conflicts for January-March. Auditions will consist of readings from the script.
