Auditions for “Mothers and Sons”

Auditions for “Mothers and Sons” written by Terrance McNally and directed by Sherry Kratzer will be held Monday and Tuesday, October 23 and 24 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Dorset Playhouse in Dorset, VT.  The play revolves around Katharine Gerard who lost her son to AIDS 20 years ago, and now Katherine visits her son’s partner, Cal, who has married Will. The two attempt to reconcile.

There is one female role for a woman who is, or can be made to pass for, 70. The two male roles are for one man around 50 and another around 35 or 40. There is also an important role for a young boy around 6-8 years old. The show runs March 2-4 and March 9-11.

Special arrangements can be made for anyone unable to audition on these dates. Copies of the script and sides are available at the playhouse to check out and read before the auditions. If you can’t make the audition dates but would like to audition or borrow a script, or sides, call Kathy at 802-867-5570. All scripts must be returned by audition dates.
