They are looking for men and women, ages 20 to 70 and one female teenager who can play 14 years old, to fill roles for six one-act plays. Actors may read from sides available at the auditions or they may present a monologue.

Presented Pieces are:

· The Buffer by Mike Allegra – Sarah has convinced Bill to go out with her best friend and her friend’s annoying, unemployed husband.

Directed by Paul Bettys

· Ping by Mary Jane Walsh – A one-woman play that depicts, in a riveting fashion, a mother’s unwavering love for her grown child. Need: Actress is a very composed woman in her 60’s-70’s, must have great emotional depth and restraint. Directed by Arnold Buchiane

· The Portrait Gallery by Gary Shaffer – An older gentleman sits quietly on a bench viewing paintings at a museum gallery, while a younger woman sits quietly on the floor sketching one the hanging portraits. Another man enters the gallery, disrupting their world and learns there is indeed more there than meets the eye. Need: Two males (20-60’s) and one female (20-30’s). Directed by Stephen Catron

· Children of September by Eric Alter – Sometimes wanting to believe is all we have … and all we need. Need: One female teenager (14 years old), female (late 40’s) and one male (30-40’s). Directed by Frank Briamonte

· The Incident Report by E.M. Lewis – When a passenger ends up dead on a plane, an aviation safety investigator attempts to discover the truth of what happened. Need: one female (20-40’s) and four males (30-60’s). Directed By Chris Messineo
