Auditions slated for WTC's Black Curtain production

| March 25, 2021 12:00 AM

The Whitefish Theatre Co. is holding auditions for its fourth Black Curtain theater production of the 2020-2021 season.

Auditions for “Our Mother’s Brief Affair” will be held on Friday, April 2, at 7:30 p.m. at the O’Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish. Please arrive early to fill out an audition application, fill out a waiver form, and review the script. Please enter at the north side of the building near WTC’s parking lot and conference room. Masks are required when you enter the building but you will be able to remove them during your audition. Please do not attend auditions if you are feeling sick.

On the verge of death for the umpteenth time, Anna makes a shocking confession to her grown children: an affair from her past that just might have resonance beyond the family. But how much of what she says is true? While her children try to separate fact from fiction, Anna fights for a legacy she can be proud of. With razor-sharp wit and extraordinary insight, “Our Mother’s Brief Affair” considers the sweeping, surprising impact of indiscretions both large and small.

The cast is comprised of one man and one woman, ages 60 and up, and one man and one woman, ages 20s to 40s. No experience or preparation is necessary to audition. Pages from the script will be provided. If you would like to familiarize yourself with the script, it is available at local public libraries.

Nick Rapp is the director of this production. As a Black Curtain show, the actors will remain on book during performances and there will be minimal costumes and set. There will be approximately 9 to 10 rehearsals. There are two performances over one weekend on April 23 and 24.
