The Olympic Theater Arts Center will be hosting auditions for Patrick Hamilton’s play “Gaslight” – known in America as “Angel Street”.
Hearings are set for 4 p.m. on Wednesday, January 5 at OTA, 414 N. Sequim Ave.
“Angel Street” tells the story of a woman slowly driven mad by her malicious husband. Thanks to her own strength and the interaction of others, she is finally free to make her own decisions.
Director Ginny Holladay is looking for actors to play the following roles:
• Mr. Manningham, the husband – charismatic, intelligent and ruthless; being played by a male actor in his 30s and 50s
• Ms. Manningham, the woman – whimsical, imaginative, intelligent; being played by a female actor in their 20s and 40s
• Rough Detective, the detective – turbulent, wise, courageous; being played by a female actor in her 40s and 60s
• Elisabeth, the head maid – shy, caring, fearful; being played by a female actor in her 40s and 60s
• Nance, the maid – carefree, persuasive, naive; being played by a female actor in their twenties and thirties
Recalls – along with auditions for anyone who can’t make the first audition – are scheduled for 11 a.m. on Saturday, January 8 at the OTA.
“I’m especially excited to lead Angel Street,” Holladay said, “with his timeless warnings about how easy it is to destroy someone through mental coercion and the importance of giving power back to those who need it most. “
“Angel Street” runs from February 10 to 17. Rehearsals are scheduled for evenings from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. starting Monday, January 10, but may be subject to change depending on the availability of the actors. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required to participate in this production.
Audition forms and scripts will be available on the day of the auditions.
