Cast­ing call for “A Del­i­cate Bal­ance”

Record Observer - - Community -

CH­ESTER­TOWN — Au­di­tions for the Garfield Cen­ter for the Arts’ Oc­to­ber pro­duc­tion of “A Del­i­cate Bal­ance” will be held at 6 p.m. Tues­day, July 19, and Thurs­day, July 21; and at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 23.

Agnes and To­bias, an older mar­ried cou­ple, are seem­ingly con­tent with their up­per class sub­ur­ban life­style. Agnes’ al­co­holic sis­ter Claire lives with them and, ex­cept for an oc­ca­sional out­burst, the three of them main­tain a com­fort­able bal­ance in the home.

Over the course of a week­end, their com­pla­cency is shat­tered when a bit­ter adult daugh­ter re­turns to the “nest” af­ter the col­lapse of her fourth mar­riage, and their long-time friends ar­rive on the scene with no in­ten­tions of leav­ing.

Direc­tor Bon­nie Hill is seek­ing a cast of four women, ages 3070; and two men, ages 55-75. Fa­mil­iar­ity with the play is help­ful, but not nec­es­sary. Ac­tors should come pre­pared to do cold read­ings from the script.

Per­for­mances are sched­uled for two week­ends: Oc­to­ber 14-16, and Oc­to­ber 21-23, at 8 p.m. Fri­days and Satur­days, and at 3 p.m. Sun­days.
