Audition Description

A Streetcar Named Desire: Based on the play by Tennessee Williams, this renowned drama follows troubled former schoolteacher Blanche DuBois as she leaves small-town Mississippi and moves in with her sister, Stella Kowalski, and her husband, Stanley, in New Orleans. Blanche's flirtatious Southern-belle presence causes problems for Stella and Stanley, who already have a volatile relationship, leading to even greater conflict in the Kowalski household.

Rabbit Hole: Eight months after the accidental death of their 4-year-old son, Howie and Becca are trying to overcome their grief. He wants to hold on to everything that reminds him of Danny, while she would rather sell their home and make a fresh start. Cracks begin to appear in the relationship as Howie bonds with a member of his therapy group and Becca reaches out to a teenage boy with telling facial scars. Based on the play by David Lindsay-Abaire.

Hand to God: Shy, inquisitive student Jason finds an outlet for his burgeoning creativity at the Christian Puppet Ministry in the devoutly religious, relatively quiet small town of Cypress, Texas, until his hand puppet Tyrone — once soft-spoken — takes on a shocking and dangerously irreverent personality all its own.

* EMC and Non-Equity actors are welcome and encouraged to participate.

  • Role #1 - Blanche

    A Streetcar Named Desire: Stella\'s older sister. Charming, clever, well-educated, demanding. Blanche constructs alternative realities and she never stops fighting to get her sister on her side— to adopt her worldview. Almost every aspect of Blanche\'s life has unraveled, but she refuses to break—a cross between extravagant hope and relentless denial. Despite the horrors of her actual circumstances, Blanche continues to identify as a woman of wealth and dignity—projecting an identity she can live with. She spins ornate falsehoods about herself and her history, forcing others to see her the way she\'d like to be seen. Desiring magic not realism, Blanche lies obsessively to make the world into a place more beautiful than it is, a place that could love and accept her. When she arrives at her sister Stella\'s home, she struggles to make the apartment her own, invading her sister\'s life and forcing her and her husband to accept her as the person she wishes she were. Like any gifted storyteller, she is charismatic; like any committed liar, she is running as fast as she can from reality; and like many who have suffered deeply, she is propelled by a chasm of pain that threatens to swallow her whole. A fighter, a survivor, and a woman of contradictions. Piano skills a plus.

  • Role #2 - Stella

    A Streetcar Named Desire: Blanche's younger sister by five years. When her father died, Stella knew intuitively that her old life as a rich aristocrat was over. Rather than waiting for the remains to crumble, Stella struck out on her own as a teenager to make her own way. Upbeat and resourceful, we meet Stella as a wife and expecting mother, much poorer than she used to be, but she doesn't have any complaints. But just like her sister, Stella too lives a life of illusions and lies. While her marriage seems cheerful enough on the surface, her husband drinks too much and beats her. Stella refuses to acknowledge her dire circumstances and insists instead that life with Stanley is safe and acceptable—better, even, than what she left behind in her father's house. When Blanche arrives, Stella must overcome Blanche's disapproval of her marriage. Stella strives to contain Blanche and her extravagant stories about their shared past. With both her sister and her husband under one roof, Stella must choose between these incompatible forces. Over and over, she chooses her husband. She is passionate, quick to forgive, obliging. Although Blanche finds Stella's living conditions intolerable and unsafe, Stella would sooner have coke, find a silver lining, and get over it, than change her life. Piano skills a plus.

  • Role #3 - Stanley

    A Streetcar Named Desire: Stella's husband. Clever, observant, attentive, passionate. Leader in the army, leader in the bowling alley, leader at the poker table. A boss with an appetite: for work, for sport, for love, for friendship. Stanley will protect his territories at all costs. His apartment, his wife, his friends, his poker game—all hard-won possessions that he has wrought with his bare hands from a resistant world. When Blanche arrives, Stanley rapidly recognizes the threat she poses: a remnant of Stella's old life, a symbol of her class superiority, someone who may take her away from him. Acting to safeguard his territory—a wife that he loves passionately, an apartment he sweats for—Stanley struggles to out Blanche as the liar she is. Trained to defuse landmines, Stanley is a thorough, relentless, and shrewd investigator. He works carefully and methodically to uncover Blanche's secrets, expose her, and expel her from his home. He has a primal, physical connection to his territory, and sometimes he explodes with rage, but in general his anger is a tool, something to be deployed with precision. He wants to protect his wife and restore stability to his household. Child, man, and god all at once, Stanley uses his hands, his intellect, and his gut to carry out the mission. Any instrument skills a plus.

  • A Streetcar Named Desire: Tall, around 200 pounds. Stanley's age. Mitch and Stanley served in the army together, and now they work at the same factory. Mitch is lonely, and he has a deep capacity for pain and for love. He seeks communion with others. He thinks a lot about his body and trying to improve himself. He needs his friends and he loves the hell out of his dying mother. Like Blanche, Mitch is looking for a savior. He and Blanche are mutually dependent on each other. But Mitch—like every character—is a complicated figure: he can be gentle, vulnerable, and sweet, but as the play unfolds, he reveals violent, angry, confrontational traits. Stanley exerts substantial influence over Mitch. Any instrument skills a plus.

    A Streetcar Named Desire: Married to Steve. Stella's friend, landlady, and upstairs neighbor. Eunice is sociable, spirited, curious, and loyal. When it comes to Stella and Blanche, Eunice is on team Stella. Eunice, like Stanley, is territorial. Though gentler than Stanley, she too sniffs out Blanche as a potential threat. Eunice and Steve's relationship (passion with a side of violence) mirrors Stella's relationship with Stanley. Any instrument skills a plus.
