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.
