Au­di­tions for ‘Doubt’ at Church Hill Theatre

Record Observer - - Arts & Entertainment -

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.
