Pegasus Theatre Project is the new resident theatre company at the West Windsor Arts Council. This new and exciting collaboration will provide a vibrant, unique, and accessible venue for the community to experience all

Pegasus Theatre Project is an independent, professional theatre company co-founded by three local theatre veterans, Peter Bisgaier, Jennifer Nasta Zefutie, and Judi Parrish. Together, they have over 85 years of experience
in all aspects of theatre production and will serve as Co-Producing Artistic Directors. Born of the desire to produce intimate productions that are interesting and challenging, Pegasus offers engaging 
entertainment that is both compelling and fun.

ABOUT THE AUDITIONS: All those auditioning are asked to memorize the monologue(s) provided for the character for which you are auditioning. The required monologues and sides to be used for auditions are available on the Pegasus website: http://pegasustheatrenj.org

ABOUT REHEARSALS: The first read thru will be scheduled the week of July 18th. The majority of rehearsals will be held in Cranbury, NJ, and primarily in the evenings during the week.

ROLES: We will be casting 3 roles: Catherine, Hal, and Robert. The role of Claire has been cast. All actors will receive a stipend.

Catherine: a young woman who inherited at least some of her father's mathematical genius, and, she fears, his "instability" as well; she gave up her life and schooling to take care of his father until his recent
death (female/age range 21-28)

Harold “Hal” Dobbs: one of Robert’s last PhD students during the one year his idol and mentor’s illness was in remission; he is an unremarkable mathematician, and he knows it (male/age range 21-30)

Robert: a recently deceased mathematician who did brilliant work in his youth, but whose later years were plagued by delusional mental illness; he is seen in Catherine’s imagination and in flashbacks (male/age range 50+ -
old enough to have 2 grown daughters, but too young to die)
