Moon Theatre Company presents

VANYA and SONIA and MASHA and SPIKE!
By Christopher Durang

Directed by Andrew Quirk

Christopher Durang’s Tony award winning play about family dysfunction revolves around Vanya and his adopted sister Sonia, who live a quiet life in the Pennsylvania farmhouse where they grew up. Their peace, however, is disturbed when their movie star sister Masha returns unannounced with her new much younger boy toy, Spike, leading to a weekend of rivalry, regret, anger, drama and hilarity.

Auditions will be held Sunday, July 12 at 6:00 p.m. at the Berthoud Re/Max TOWN & COUNTRY offices, 340 Mountain Ave, Berthoud, CO 80513. Callbacks will be July 13 if necessary.

No appointment is necessary. There will be cold readings from the script. Monologues are encouraged, but not required.

Characters:
VANYA: 50’s, living in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Openly gay and resigned to his life situation when compared to his sisters.

SONIA: Vanya’s adopted sister currently living with him. Also in her 50’s. She is very discontent, upset, regretful, prone to fits and possibly bipolar.

MASHA: Vanya’s biological sister. Also in 50’s. Glamorous and successful actress whose career has started to flounder. Pays for the house that Vanya and Sonia live in. Spends all her time gallivanting around the world. Usually with much younger men. This year’s model is called:

SPIKE: 20’s. Good looking. Has no problem being an underwear model. Very self-absorbed.

NINA: Lovely, sincere, would be actress. 20’s. Sweet, somewhat naïve. Innocent. She is visiting her aunt and uncle who live next door.

CASSANDRA: Cleaning lady, ageless, soothsayer. Kind of crazy.

The 2014-2015 Season Is Announced!

by Robert Bolt
Directed by Kathleen Gruman

A Man for All Seasons is based on the true story of Sir Thomas More, the 16th-century Chancellor of England, who refuses to endorse or denounce the king’s wish to divorce his aging wife so that he can marry his mistress and produce a male heir to the throne. The King, Henry VIII of England, is supported by everyone on this request except the highly devout Sir Thomas More. When Cardinal Wolsey, Chancellor of England, names More as his successor, it becomes important for Henry to get More’s support, but More cannot be swayed. Henry demands the clergy renounce the Pope and to name him Head of the Church of England. Oliver Cromwell frames More, forcing him to resign as Chancellor. Eventually More is brought to trial for treason.

This play asks the question, “How far would you go to stay true to your conscience?”

I Hate Hamlet – May 22 – 31

​by Paul Rudnick

Director TBA

A young and successful television actor relocates to New York, where he rents a marvelous, gothic apartment. With his television career in limbo, the actor is offered the opportunity to play Hamlet onstage, but there’s one problem: He hates Hamlet. His dilemma deepens with the entrance of John Barrymore’s ghost, who arrives intoxicated and in full costume to the apartment that once was his. The contrast between the two actors, the towering, dissipated Barrymore whose Hamlet was the greatest of his time, and Andrew Rally, hot young television star, leads to a wildly funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television, and yes, the apartment. “…fast-mouthed and funny…It has the old-fashioned Broadway virtues of brightness without pretensions and sentimentality without morals.” —Village Voice. “…unapologetically silly and at times hilarious…affectionately amusing about the theatre…” —NY Times.
