SCRANTON — Actors Circle set auditions for the first play of its 35th season, “The House of Blue Leaves” by John Guare.
Set in Queens on the famous day Pope Paul VI visits NYC in 1965, a Zookeeper dreams of penning ditties in Hollywood with his girlfriend at his side. He must first deal with his schizophrenic, shut-in wife, and his quietly explosive GI son, who went AWOL while headed for Vietnam; add to the mix some crazy nuns and a movie star. This farcical, dark comedy won many awards, including several Tonys for its 1986 revival.
Needed are men and women ages 18 and up, including a middle-aged man who sings. Auditions will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, July 26 and 27 at Providence Playhouse, 1256 Providence Road. Show dates are Sept. 15 through 25. Those wishing to audition should come with a conflict schedule for August through September.
