Center Stage Theatre director Gary Scarpa has announced the theatre will hold auditions for the Tony Award winning play, “Doubt”, on Tuesday, February 13th, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Scarpa said, “We are seeking adult actors, and all roles are open.”
“Doubt” is set in the fictional St. Nicholas Church School, in the Bronx, during the fall of 1964 in the midst of political and social change. A progressive young priest’s conduct comes under question by Sister Aloysius Beauvier, the school principal, whose beliefs are deeply rooted in tradition. As the actions and motivations of each are scrutinized and suspicion mounts, the two are drawn into a battle of wills that threatens irrevocable consequences for all involved. The play won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play. The play was turned into an Academy Award-nominated film starring Philip Seymour Hoffman as Father Flynn and Meryl Streep as Sister Aloysius.
“We are excited about bringing this topical and suspense filled play to our stage, ” said Scarpa. “I anticipate that it will create a great deal of thought provoking discussion among our patrons.”
