OHMPAA - Community Theater in the Hills

Jekyll & Hyde poster

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

by Christopher Durang

June 20-23 and 27-30 at the Norway Grange

directed by Lenore Grunko


Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia share a home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives. Suddenly, their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra, who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha.


Auditions

WHEN: Monday, April 22 and Tuesday, April 23, at 6:30 p.m. Call backs, if necessary, on Thursday, April 25.

WHERE: In our theater on the second floor of the Norway Grange, 15 Whitman Street, Norway, Maine.

WHO: Open to all ethnicities and genders. Five of the six characters have specific age range requirements; the sixth is flexible.

  • VANYA - 50s, living in Bucks County. Resigned to his life, more or less, at least compared to Sonia.
  • SONIA - Vanya's adopted sister, early 50s, living with him in Bucks County. Discontent, upset, regretful with a dark-sided sense of humor.
  • MASHA - Vanya's sister, 50s, glamorous and successful actress who goes gallivanting around the world. Narcissistic. Dramatic.
  • SPIKE - An aspiring actor, 20s, sexy, self-absorbed. Boy toy with boyish looks. Frequently takes off a lot of his clothes to show off his body.
  • CASSANDRA - Ageless. Housekeeper and soothsayer. She is wacky and loves making incantations to keep everyone on their toes.
  • NINA - Lovely, sincere, naive would-be actress. Early 20s. She is visiting her aunt and uncle who live next door to Vanya and Sonia. Starstruck and energetic. Oozes innocence.

Perusal scripts will be available at the Norway and Paris libraries in April.
