Ridgefield Theater BarnThe Ridgefield Theater Barn will hold open auditions for Becky’s New Car, a play by Stephen Dietz, on Sunday September 8th at 6pm and Monday September 9th at 7pm, at the Ridgefield Theater Barn, 37 Halpin Lane, Ridgefield, CT.

The production, directed by Sherry Asch and produced by Cheryl Boyd, will be presented Friday and Saturday evenings at 8pm, November 14 through December 7, with Sunday matinees November 24 and December 1 at 2pm.

Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage—with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life…and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn’t dare. Becky’s New Car is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken..

Roles for 3 women and 4 men. Those auditioning should read the play beforehand and will be asked to read from sides provided. For more information, including a cast breakdown, please visit or contact the director at
