Lemon Bay Playhouse to Hold Auditions for “Crimes of the Heart” and “Fleming”
Published: October 19, 2017
In keeping with its new policy of “cluster” auditioning, the Lemon Bay Playhouse will hold open auditions for two upcoming productions on Sunday, November 19 and Monday, November 20 at 7:00pm at the Playhouse, 96 W. Dearborn St., Englewood. The two plays are: “Crimes of the Heart” by Beth Henley and “Fleming” by Sam Bobrick.
“Crimes of the Heart” will be directed by Ron Bupp and run from January 17 through February 11, 2018. It calls for a cast of four female and two male actors, and tells this compelling story:
The three McGrath sisters are back together in their southern hometown for the first time in a decade. Lenny, the eldest, never left Hazelhurst ̶ she is the caretaker of the sisters’ cantankerous Old Granddaddy. Meg, the middle sister, left home to pursue stardom as a singer in Los Angeles, but has, so far, only found happiness at the bottom of a bottle. And Babe, the youngest, has just been arrested for the murder of her abusive husband. Under the scorching heat of the Mississippi Sun, past resentments bubble to the surface and each sister must come to terms with the consequences of her own “crimes of the heart.”
“Fleming” will be directed by Bob LaSalle and run from March 7 through April 1, 2018. It calls for a cast of three female and four male actors. A comedy/mystery it unfolds as follows: Bored by his privileged, but mundane life, Henry Fleming sells his lucrative brokerage firm to become a detective. On his very first case, and to the horror of his wife, Karen, and his two crazy neighbors, Suzy and Stan, the Flemming living room begins to fill up with dead bodies. Karen is further annoyed when one of them turns out to be her father. Even though Henry keeps showing up at home every day more disheveled and beaten up, he couldn’t be happier. Henry is convinced he’s found his life’s work and Westport, Connecticut is safer for it.
