Dynamic Opportunities for DC Actors

There are many dynamic opportunities for actors this summer!
There are many dynamic opportunities for actors this summer!

We're in the middle of the Summer of 2014, my loyal readers, and the production of stage shows and films this fall is approaching. There's a fantastic Web series class being offered by Lisa Wassel, Co-Artistic Director of the John Pallotta Studio. Students must audition and interview to land a role in a Web series called Dirty Laundry, and they'll get to learn from a different director each week the series shoots.

Some theater companies need casting help, for instance, Prince George's Little Theatre (PGLT) opens its season with Neil Simon’s Brighton Beach Memoirs in six weeks on Friday, August 29, and needs to fill the role of Blanche, pronto!

There's more: Greenbelt Arts Center just opened a stage play, a drama, set during the Second World War, and Montgomery Playhouse just opened its One Act Festival.

Don't let these opportunities pass you by, folks. Read on and take action!

During the first week of class, actors will be cast in their own respective webisodes; scenes will contain two or three characters. These individual webisodes will result in the first-ever WebSeries to emerge from an acting class.

The first 5 weeks of class, actors will rehearse their webisodes The last month of class, actors will move from the rehearsal process in the theater to the on-set location and shooting process, with each webisode being shot by a professional DP and crew with TV/Film quality equipment.

PGLT opens its season with Neil Simon’s Brighton Beach Memoirs in six weeks on Friday, August 29. Unfortunately, the actress cast for the role of Blanche is moving and needs to be replaced. The director, Ken Kienas, is looking for an immediate replacement.

Brighton Beach Memoirs is a hilarious, touching narrative seen through eyes of fifteen-year-old Eugene as he negotiates the challenges of the Jewish family life in Brooklyn during the height of the Depression (1937). His Aunt Blanche and her two daughters, 16 and 14, live with the Eugene’s family. Blanche needs to look late 30s to 40s. She is recently widowed, indecisive, and lives with the Jeromes out of necessity. She wants to have a life for herself and her daughters, but she does not know how or where to begin.

Please contact Ken at or call 301-464-5399 to discuss coming in on Monday, July 21st for an audition at the New Carrollton Municipal Building at 6016 Princess Garden Parkway, New Carrollton, MD. The audition will be readings from the script with selected cast members.

Our next Blanche will need to be available for rehearsals for approximately three week nights per week and have (or be able to acquire) a Brooklyn accent.

The show runs three weekends from Friday, August 29 (Labor Day weekend) to September 13, and is performed at the Bowie Playhouse.

*** And if you know someone who might be right for this role, please forward this message.

Many thanks,

The Production Team of PGLT's Brighton Beach Memoirs

Guest production from The Seventh Street Playhouse

Seventy years ago, American forces liberated Rome from Nazi occupation. This fact-based, two-act drama deals with that tragic period in Italy during the Holocaust when fifteen hundred Jews were sent to their deaths at Auschwitz . The drama touches on the role of the Church and the Holocaust, and examines forgiveness amidst three conversions. Rome 's aloof and scholarly Chief Rabbi Israel Zolli loses faith following the apparent slaughter of his Polish family. He receives asylum in the Vatican , where he comes to appreciate Jesus as God suffering for humanity. The Rabbi rediscovers faith and converts to Roman Catholicism. This is seen as a betrayal of his spiritual duty and a defection to the age-old enemy. Was his conversion one of conviction or merely gratitude? What does he demand at his baptism that eventually removes a major symbol of discrimination?
