Auburn Area Community Theatre Announces Open Auditions for “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike”!

This Tony award-winning comedy revolves around the relationship between three single middle-aged siblings. Vanya and adopted Sonia, share a home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives. Unexpectedly their movie-star sister, Masha, owner of the house, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra, who believes she can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina. Nina’s prettiness worries the imperious Masha. At a fancy dress party, everyone’s lives begin to change.

AACT is looking to fill the roles of 2 men and 4 women. Auditions will be held March 2nd and 3rd from 6-8pm at the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center, 222 E Drake Ave., Auburn, AL. Anyone wanting to audition should plan to attend one of these sessions for the entire allotted time. This will consist of cold readings from script or sides available closer to audition dates.
