Professional Theatre For Maine

AUDITION NOTICE: The Public Theatre is Seeking Actor and Young Actress!

Are you an Actor or Actress? Do you know someone who would like a role in Wait Until Dark?

The Public Theatre, a Professional Equity Theatre in Lewiston is seeking two non-union actors for roles in their upcoming production of Wait Until Dark.

They are looking for a talented 12-14 year old girl for the role of Gloria, an intelligent, lonely and somewhat neglected girl from a troubled family, who desperately wants to belong, yet often rebelliously acts out to get attention.

They are also seeking a male actor in his 30’s to play the role of Sam, a well intentioned husband determined not to coddle his blind wife by challenging her to be more independent. Please note that this play is set in the 1940’s, so a certain style and sensibility is required.

Contract dates are Sept 28th – Oct 25th. Performance dates are Oct 16 - 25. There may be some morning student matinee performances. Rehearsals are generally 11am to 7pm, Tuesday through Sunday; however, these roles will have some flexibility in their rehearsal schedule. All roles are salaried. Some school will probably need to be missed for the young actress.

This is a great opportunity for a local young actress and male actor. Auditions will be held by appointment only in late August. If you are interested in being considered for these roles, please send us a picture and resume ASAP and we will contact you to set up an audition appointment if we are interested.
