Langley Players holding auditions for Bus Stop
Langley Players will hold auditions later this month for their upcoming production Bus Stop.
Written by William Inge and directed by Helen Embury, the play is set in a road-side diner during a snowstorm and follows the experiences of people struggling to connect.
The unlikely ensemble of characters in the comedy is faced with making serious decisions in their lives. Bus Stop was first staged in 1955 – a year perched on the edge between the perceived age of innocence and the new world of the ‘60s which was about to unfold.
Auditions will be held Oct. 27 and 28, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Callbacks, if necessary, will happen on Oct. 30, from 7 p.m. to 10 .m.
Actors are asked to bring along a resume and a headshot.
Anyone who will be arriving at the audition later than 8:30 p.m. is asked to advise the producer, at email@example.com.
Roles include: Elma, a waitress aged 16 to 18; Grace, a restaurant owner aged 35 to 45; Will, a sheriff aged 45-plus; Cherie, a singer in her early 20s; Dr Lyman, professor aged 50 to 55; Carl, a bus driver aged 40 to 50; Virgil, a ranch hand in his 50s and Bo, a young cowboy in his early 20s.
Several of the roles require special skills including singing and playing guitar.
The play will run from Jan. 23 to Feb. 22. Auditions begin Nov. 3.
