auditions

We know that there are some amazingly talented people out there and we want you! We are always looking for new stars to perform at Doncaster Little Theatre alongside our incredible cast and crew!

THE BOOR by Anton Chekhov
This is a one act play for three actors which is thirteen pages long and will take about half an hour to perform – if we get the pace right!
It will be one of our Black Box productions in order to keep the set as simple as possible.

It is a farce about mannered society of the 1880’s and deals with the fickle nature of human emotions and commitment.
Characters:

  • Helena Ivanova Popov – a youngish and attractive widow – about 30ish – who has been in deep mourning since her husband died seven months before. She has determined to remain incarcerated in her home until she dies in order to prove her faithfulness to her unfaithful husband.
  • Grigori Stepanovitch Smirnov – a landowner and country gentleman – 30-40ish – he has little time for the wiles of the female whom he sees as untrustworthy and not very bright.
  • Luka – the older retainer (40+) of Mrs Popov who wishes to persuade his mistress to embrace life again before she loses her beauty.

Audition Pieces:

Mrs Popov – pages 6 – 8 from, ‘Sir, in my solitude . . .’ to ‘I won’t give you the money.’
Smirnov – pages 6 – 8 from, ‘Lord, How angry I am! . . . ’ to ‘Pay me my money, and I’ll leave.’
Luka – pages 1 – 2 from, ‘It isn’t right, ma’am. . . .’ to bottom of page 2.

I would like to have the first read through on Monday October 12th at 7.00 pm at the theatre and then two rehearsals per week possibly on Wednesdays and Thursdays if this suits the actors but this can be changed to accommodate other commitments.
