Auditions for the Garfield Center for the Arts’ June production of “Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike”” will be held on Sunday, March 15 at 2pm, Tuesday, March 17 at 7pm and Thursday, March 19 at 7pm.
According to the Associated Press, Vanya and Sonia and Masha, and Spike is “utterly refreshing and witty with a huge pop culture appetite ….Durang’s genius is the ability to write highbrow and lowbrow at the same time.”
Director Bonnie Hill is seeking a cast of four Women – ages 20 – 60; and two Men – ages 21 – 60. Familiarity with the play is helpful, but not necessary. Come prepared to do cold readings from the script.
Performances are scheduled for two weekends: June 19, 20 & 21 + June 26, 27 & 28

VANYA & SONIA & MASHA & SPIKE
Written by Christopher Durang
Directed by Bonnie Hill
Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play, this delicious comedy revolves around the relationships of three middle-aged siblings, two of whom live together. An unannounced visit by their sister Masha, with her twentysomething boy toy, Spike, sets up a lively chain of events. They discuss their lives and loves, argue, and Masha threatens to sell the house. Some of the show’s elements are derived from the works of Anton Chekhov, including several of the character names, the play’s setting at a country house, and the theme of possible loss of the ancestral home.
