ENCHANTED APRIL by Matthew Barber
Runs: September 25 – October 11, 2015
Thursdays - Sundays
Keshet Center for the Arts
Directed by William R. Stafford
Matthew Barber ‘s 2003 Tony Award-nominated stage adaptation of the novel by Elizabeth von Arnim's tells of four dissimilar women in 1920s England who leave their rainy, grey environments to go on holiday in Italy. Mrs. Wilton and Mrs Arnott, who belong to the same ladies' club but have never spoken, become acquainted after reading a newspaper advertisement for a small castle on the shores of Italy to be let furnished for the month of April. They find some common ground in that both are struggling to make the best of unsatisfying marriages. Having decided to seek other ladies to help share expenses, they reluctantly take on the cantankerous, elderly Mrs. Graves and the stunning but aloof Lady Caroline. The four women come together at the castle and find rejuvenation in the tranquil beauty of their surroundings, rediscovering hope and love.
The cast requires five women and three men:
• Lotty, age 25 to 35+, is the driving force of the play and has endless energy. Shocked by her own daring at planning this adventure as well as the extravagance of it. Finds the Italian setting wildly, ridiculously, divinely beautiful.
• Rose, 30 to 40, is a proper English housewife with strong morals. Gives every penny to the poor to make up for her husband's evil books.
• Mrs. Graves, 65 to 85, is a feisty dowager, stately and dignified with an unmistakable air of grandeur, but not without humor. Aggressive, widowed
• Costanza, 50 to 70, with an Italian accent, is the housekeeper of the Italian villa with a "tongue in cheek" humor.
• Melleresh, 30 to 40, is a frugal, somewhat stuffy English solicitor and the demanding husband of Lotty.
• Frederick, 35 to 50, is a novelist enjoying his climb up the social ladder.
• Wilding, 25 to 35, is the owner of the Italian villa and a likable, handsome gentleman who knows how to charm the ladies. An Artist. Smitten with Rose, ends up with Lady Caroline
*Lady Caroline (precast)
Auditions will be from the script.
Attempts at English accents are encouraged.

Out of the violence a silence, then a song. A German Soldier stepped in No Man’s Land singing “Stille Nacht” (Silent Night) This show is about an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music and peace. It’s a true story told in the words and songs of the men who lived it.
The musical is written for acapella male voices. We will be casting 9-12 men. 3-5 will be the primary actors. Must
demonstrate facility with multiple accents (Standard British, Lower Class British, Upper Class British, German, Irish, French and Scottish).
