Auditions for Sylvia by A. R. Gurney will be held at Garfield Center for the Arts on Tuesday and Thursday, July 25th and 27th at 6PM, and Saturday, July 29th at 11AM. Directed by Bonnie Hill, the play runs two weekends from October 13 – the 22nd.
Empty nesters Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after raising their family in the suburbs. While at the park, Greg befriends Sylvia, a perky stray dog, and brings her home. A street- smart mixture of lab and poodle, Sylvia becomes a major “bone of contention” between husband and wife. Sylvia is a delightful and delicious comedy that illuminates the complicated relationship between dogs and their human companions.
Casting needs include:
Sylvia – Female playing an active, perky canine – age 18 – 30
Greg – Male, middle-aged businessman
Kate – Female, middle-aged teacher
*Tom, Phyllis, and Leslie – these three characters are played by one actor – age 20- 59
Tom is a male dog owner, who befriends Greg in the park; Phyllis is a friend of Kate’s; and Leslie is a therapist.
Familiarity with the play is beneficial, but not necessary. Scripts will be available at the Garfield. Be prepared to do cold readings from the script. Anyone interested in assisting backstage is also encouraged to come to auditions.
