Lemon Bay Playhouse to Hold Auditions for “The Tin Woman” and “Sylvia”
Published: February 7, 2018
In keeping with its new policy of “cluster” auditioning, the Lemon Bay Playhouse will hold open auditions for two upcoming productions on Sunday, February 25 and Monday, February 26, 2018 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm at the Playhouse, 96 W. Dearborn St., Englewood. The two plays are: “The Tin Woman” by Sean Grennan and “Sylvia” by A.R. Gurney.
The first show, “The Tin Woman”, will be directed by Will Horton and runs from April 25 through May 13, 2018. It calls for a cast of four female and two male actors. Instead of relishing life after her heart transplant, Joy enters a downward spiral, unsure whether she truly deserves a second chance. Meanwhile, Alice and Hank mourn the loss of their son Jack, whose heart was used to save Joy. At a friend’s urging, Joy tracks down Jack’s family to find closure. But are Alice, Hank, and their daughter Sammy ready to accept Jack’s death? Based on a true story, “The Tin Woman” uses humor and pathos to explore loss, family, and what it means to be given new life.
The second show, “Sylvia”, will be directed by Murray Hudson and runs from June 6 through June 24, 2018. It calls for a cast of three female and two male actors. Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg’s career as a financial trader is winding down, while Kate’s career, as a public-school English teacher, is beginning to offer her more opportunities. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name “Sylvia.” Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.
