Auditions for ‘Doubt’ at Church Hill Theatre
CHURCH HILL — Church Hill Theatre will hold auditions for “Doubt, a Parable” on from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 24, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, June 26 and from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 28.
Directed by Michael Whitehill, “Doubt” opens on Sept. 9 and will run for three weekends.
“Doubt, a Parable,” written by John Patrick Shanley, won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for drama. The film version starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Meryl Streep was nominated for several Academy Awards.
Set in 1964 at a Church School in the Bronx, the play examines faith and how far one is willing to go in the name of truth. Director Whitehill said, it is a life lesson for the pious and a warning against unfounded moral certainty.
The roles and approximate ages in “Doubt” are: Father Brendan Flynn, late 30s. Sister Aloysius Beauvier, 50s or 60s. Sister James, 20s. Mrs. Muller, African American, mid 30s.
Whitehill will ask actors to do cold readings from the script, take some direction and practice movement exercises.
CHT invites both experienced and new actors to audition, and also encourages volunteers interested in production and back-stage positions to attend.
Whitehill is currently seeking a stage manager, an assistant to the director and a dramaturg.
