The Riverfront Playhouse, 11-13 S. Water St. Mall, Aurora, IL, will hold auditions for its next production,“Daddies,” a play by Douglas Gower, on Sunday, October 13 and Tuesday, October 15 at 7pm.
Performance dates will be November 15, 16, 22, 23, 29 & 30 with an 8:00pm curtain.
The cast consists of two men, both of whom should appear to be in their late 30s or early 40s.
“Daddies” is described by director Gary Puckett as a “comic drama” which takes place during the Christmas season. The story revolves around George, who has been living with a woman who is divorced with two small children and Carl, the biological father of the children. The play takes place during the Christmas season. “Both of these men are struggling to be the best father that they can be,” says Puckett. “In addition, the play deals, in a comical way, with the struggles of fathers everywhere during the holidays. The play demonstrates the truth of the old gag – that Christmas is once again ‘at our throats.’ ”
The auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. No headshots or resumes are necessary. For more information, visit the Riverfront Playhouse’s website at riverfrontplayhouse.com. or call 630-897-9496.
