What to Know:

Audition Details

Mysterium Theater will be holding auditions for their upcoming production of Clare Booth Luce's THE WOMEN. Dir: Dyan Hobday. 

"Filled with strong, colorful, comedic characters, a snappy supporting cast of many, and an abundance of witty dialogue, Clare Boothe Luce's THE WOMEN is juicy, wicked, and full of guilty fun. Both a scathing commentary on the life of the superficial, selfish socialite and a knowing, heartfelt depiction of romantic rivalry, toxic friendships, and the thousands of supporting roles women play in offices, salons, and their own lives."

Auditions will be Sunday December 9th from 10am-2pm and Monday December 10th from 7pm-10pm. Sides will be made available at auditions. 

Performances will be Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from February 15th to March 3rd. 

Casting the following:

Mary Haines (Lead) 30s, a well-off woman, the envy of her friends, boasting a wholesome, happy marriage, adorable children and a comfortable home. Strong and proud even when betrayed by her husband and her friends.

Sylvia Fowler (Lead) 30s, tactless, gossip- hungry, elegant, feline, overbearing, overconfident, judgemental, disloyal.

Crystal Allen (Lead) 30s, sultry, gold-digging man- eater, manipulative, attractive mistress of Mr. Steven Haines

Edith Potter (Supporting) 30s, expensively dressed yet sloppy. Materialistic, gluttonous and somewhat lazy. Indifferent to everything but self. Incapable of deliberate maliciousness or spontaneous generosity.

Peggy Day (Supporting) 20s, pretty, sweet. Has not, and never will quite "jell" with her older peers. Troubled, anxious and impressionable.

Nancy Blake (Supporting) 30s, writer, cynic, intelligent, worldly adventurous yet remains a virginal spinster

Little Mary (Supporting) 11-13 Mary's daughter. Thoughtful, emotional, smart. Physically well developed for her age

Mrs. Morehead (Supporting) 50s, Mary's widowed mother. Bourgeois aristocrat, dignified, opinionated, but loving and supportive.

Countess Flora de Lage (Supporting) Late 40s - Early 50s, robust woman, grandiose and romantic. Countess only by marriage to her fourth husband. 

Miriam Aarons (Supporting) Late 20s - Early 30s, Broadway star. Sensible, seductive and practical.

Jane (Featured) 20s, the Haines' Maid. Helpful, loyal, emotional and often times dramatic.

12-15 ensemble women to play multuple speaking roles throughout. 

This show is an ensemble piece to its core, and we are seeking strong comedic personalities to introduce the audience to "an artificial society that consists of vain show, comedy, tragedy, hope and disappointment."  (Dramatists Play Service, Inc)
