Audition Notice

PROOF BY David Auburn
Directed by Sarah Mitteldorf

Auditions for Proof will be held on Saturday, June 13 from 6:30 - 9:30 and Sunday, June 14 from 6:30 - 9:30.

We are looking for three additional actors to play:
Hal, male, 28
Claire, female, 29
Robert, retired professor

After her father, Robert's, death, Catherine finds herself facing Hal, a graduate student, who is intent on sifting through her father's notebooks, Claire, a sister she never really liked, and depression. When they find a revolutionary mathematical proof locked in a drawer, Catherine, Hal, and Claire must face evidence of Robert's transition from brilliant mathematician to graphomaniac, questions of heredity and trust, and their own fears and assumptions about Catherine's brilliant and possibly fragile mind.

Rehearsals begin mid - July, and will be held mostly in evenings and on weekends.
Opening September: 25
Dates of production: Sept. 25, 26, 27 Oct. 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11
Directed by Sarah Mitteldorf
There is a small honorarium available, which will be augmented with a generous cookie policy.

To Audition:
Please bring a prepared monologue of any style that just makes you happy to perform and a copy of your resume.
