Auditions set for ‘Streetcar’
Judy Dean, president of Possum Point Players, announced today that audition dates for Tennessee Williams’ classic play, “Streetcar Named Desire,” have been scheduled. “So many of us are excited about producing Tennessee Williams’ most recognizable story. It had a very long run on Broadway, and many rank this tale as one of the greatest in American Theatre.” Dean continued, “We are also pleased that Jim DeBastiani has agreed to direct the play and add his insight into the characters. DeBastiani is one of the best directors at Possums, and his works are often heralded as great successes. The theatre community is still talking about DeBastiani’s ‘No Exit,’ as well as his interpretation of the works of Joyce Carol Oates.”
DeBastiani is looking for a cast of adults, 6 men, 6 women, including one Hispanic woman, one Hispanic man, and one African American woman, plus four walk ons. In addition, “we are looking for a few jazz musicians… someone who can come in and help us set the tone for New Orleans… people who are interested in jamming with us,” said DeBastiani.
Auditions are set for July 7, at 2 p.m.; July 8, at 7 p.m., and July 9, at 7 p.m.According to DeBastiani, “actors, be prepared for cold readings of the script, musician’s be prepared to jam…”
The performances for “Streetcar” are scheduled for Sept. 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21 and 22. Those interested in volunteering for non-acting roles in the play (set construction, costumes, props, make-up or hair) are also invited to attend auditions.
