Dionysus Theatre Company announces open auditions for their summer production, Proof, under the co-direction of Gabbi Mendelsohn and Bill Prenetta.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, David Auburn’s Proof is a passionate, intelligent story about fathers and daughters, the nature of genius, and the power of love.
Auditions will be held Tuesday June 13th and Wednesday June 14th, from 6:30-8:30pm at the Arts Center East, 709 Hartford Turnpike, Vernon Ct.
Show dates are August 11-13, and 18-19.
Roles to be Cast: Hal (25-35) and Robert (50-65).
- Robert – A recently deceased mathematician praised for his groundbreaking work in his youth, but whose later years were plagued by delusional mental illness; he is seen in Catherine’s imagination and in flashbacks.
- Harold (Hal) Dobbs – One of Robert’s last Ph.D. students during the one year his idol and mentor’s illness went into remission, at least enabling Robert to teach, if not continue his own creative mathematical work.
The first read through is scheduled for Monday June 19th, with regularly scheduled rehearsals starting July 5th. Rehearsals will be held 3 days a week until tech, depending on actors schedule/ availability. Actors should be prepared to read sides from the script – copies will be available for preparation in the lobby before auditioning.
