Isadoora Theatre Production - Meaty Vehicle for Actresses

An October production of Talking With, produced by Isadoora Theatre Company, will allow eleven of Door County’s finest actresses to take center stage and “dialogue” with the audience details of the passion and obsessions of their characters’ lives. Character actresses too often long for an opportunity to play an ingénue role. I suspect that ingénue actresses actually wish they could get the dynamic character roles. Once we have had those terrific three-dimensional characters to sink our teeth into, the romantic roles and the pretty costumes seem rather insignificant. Few plays provide the diverse acting opportunities for character actresses found in Jane Martin’s Talking With. This monologue play for eleven actresses creates a vibrant venue for exploring and developing dynamic characters. It offers immense opportunity for risk-taking, just what every real actor desires

Auditions for the roles in Talking With will be held from 6:00-8:00 pm on July 27th at Third Avenue Playhouse, August 1st at the Sturgeon Bay Library, August 2nd at Ephraim Village Hall, or by calling Director, Gayle Johnson. Ten of the diverse roles are available; the role of Snake Handler has been pre-cast. The casting call is open to females from 17 to 70 years old. Actresses will be asked to read from the script. Scripts for perusal are available at the Sturgeon Bay Library, Sweetbriar B&B in Sister Bay, and from the Director. Several crew positions are also available  

Hilarious, shocking, uncomfortable, and provocative stories will fill the theatres at TAP and the Ephraim Village Hall, challenging audiences to rethink assumptions created by exterior illusions and first impressions. What is behind the beautiful woman who chooses to abundantly tattoo her delicate skin, or the homeless woman digging in the garbage only for food from Mc Donalds? Why does a Pentecostal snake handler continue to handle when her loved ones have died from the poisonous venom? We can only imagine; Jane Martin shares the secret stories behind the facades.
