‘Elm Circle’ auditions set in Cobleskill

Auditions for Theater Project of Schoharie’s “Elm Circle” will be Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 25 and 26, at 1 p.m. at Teen Town at Golding Park in Cobleskill.

“Elm Circle” is the story of a runaway teen’s struggle with reality, set in 1977 with Elvis’ funeral in the background. Janny, a teenage girl, seeks fame and fortune by running off to New York City with her brother. “Elm Circle” is a blend of nostalgia and modern writing and directing that will appeal to a wide range of people, according to a media release.

There are five speaking roles, two female and three male. One of the female actresses and two of the male actors play two characters; the third male character plays three characters. The remaining female character is a teenage runaway. Virtually the entire play takes place in her head and she is almost always on stage. 

Roles include a married couple ages 38 to 40, their two children 15 and 18, and a boyfriend ages 23. The husband’s other two roles are a truck driver and an older hippy.

There are also four non-speaking roles: two female youths and two male youths. They will be doing bits between scenes that introduce the next scene. They will be moving/rearranging scenery. These roles may be non-speaking but they are significant and require acting skills.
