Call For Actors/Crew/Job Postings


Upcoming Auditions:

Wayward Actors Company will be holding auditions for Craig Lucas' PRELUDE TO A KISS on Sunday February 1st at 7:00 pm in the basement community room of the Christian Health Center, 920 S 4th Street, in Louisville. The show will be performed March 27 – April 5, 2015 at the Mex Theater in the Kentucky Center for the Arts.
Plot:
Peter and Rita are two young, happy lovers who are getting married. On their wedding day, after their nuptial kiss, an old man comes up to kiss the bride. During this kiss, their souls exchange, and the young, beautiful woman Peter just married now houses the soul of a dying, old man. On their honeymoon, Peter starts to notice that something’s not quite right. When he discovers the truth, he confronts the old man, who now holds Rita’s soul. Peter struggles with the notion that this is his young bride, and he works feverishly to put the souls back in their original bodies. At the same time, he realizes that he loves who Rita is, no matter how she is packaged. Craig Lucas’ play, first performed in 1990, was considered a metaphor for the AIDS epidemic, in which a man could find himself in a relationship with someone who was suddenly old and sick before his time.

The play is presented as a "modern fairy tale" and auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.

Synopsis of this musical play:

YANK!    (Musical Serio-Comedy) 
Music by Joseph Zellnick, Book & Lyrics by David Zellnick
May 14 - 24, 2015 ||
Directed by Michael J. Drury
Musical direction by Gayle King
Choreography by Christopher Gilbert

Yank! is a love song to Hollywood's "it takes one of every kind" platoon flicks and to 1940's Broadway.  It's the kind of old-fashioned musical that makes you feel as if you're watching an amalgam of World War II movies and listening to some old long playing records of swing music by the Glenn Miller band and the Andrew sisters. Thus, if all the characters seem a little like stereotypes of the G.I. Joes who were thrown together in a war fought by an across-the-board draft rather than a volunteer service corps, that's part of this show's charm and intent. It's a memory piece triggered by a diary found in a junk shop.  It's a typically bittersweet wartime love story, except that it's Stu and not a girl who falls in love with Mitch who epitomizes the tall, dark and handsome leading men of this period. 

Rehearses:                  Early April to early May
Load In:                        May 10

Little Colonel Players:
Feb 15 and 16

Our Town
by Thornton Wilder
Directed by Sharon Sommermeyer

Described by Edward Albee as "...the greatest American play ever written," the story follows the small town of Grover's Corners through three acts: "Daily Life", "Love and Marriage", and "Death and Etermity".  Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually - in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre - die. Thornton Wilder's final word on how he wanted this play performed is an invaluable addition to the American stage and to the libraries of theatre lovers internationally.
