Cambrian Players is pleased to announce that open auditions will be held for their upcoming production of VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE written by Christopher Durang and directed by Julie MacCoy.
Auditions will be held on Monday December 6th from 6PM to 9PM and Tuesday December 7th from 6PM to 9PM at the Cambrian Players Theatre at 818 Spring Street.

Vanya and his adopted sister Sonia live a quiet life in the Pennsylvania farmhouse where they grew up, but their peace is disturbed when their movie star sister Masha returns unannounced with her twenty-something boy toy, Spike. A weekend of rivalry, regret, and raucousness begins!

We are looking for actors over the age of 18 to participate in the following roles:

Vanya: male 45-60 – Lives in Bucks County. Resigned to his life, more or less, at least compared to Sonia.

Sonia: female 45-60 – Vanya’s adopted sister, living with him in Bucks County. Discontent, upset, regretful.

Masha: female 45-60 – Vanya’s sister, glamourous and successful actress who goes gallivanting around the world.

Spike: male 20-30 – An aspiring actor, sexy, self-absorbed, Masha’s new companion.

Nina: female 18-25 – Lovely, sincere would-be actress, visiting her aunt and uncle next door. Starstruck and energetic.

Cassandra: female 25-40 – Cleaning lady and soothsayer: kooky and witty

Performance evenings are Wednesday March 2nd to Saturday March 5th and Wednesday March 9th to Saturday March 12th. All performances will take place at the Cambrian Players Theatre.

Materials will be provided for cold readings.
