The Umbrella is proud to announce auditions for its winter production of David Mamet’s GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS
Produced by Brian Boruta
Directed by Nancy Curran Willis
David Mamet's testosterone-fueled 1984 Pulitzer Prize winner. A group of cutthroat Chicago real estate salesmen will go to any lengths — from lies and flattery to bribery and burglary — to unload parcels of land on unsuspecting buyers in an economic market speeding towards disaster in this darkly comic satire of the American Dream.
All those cast will be offered a travel stipend.
When: September 5th and 7th starting at 7 pm, by appointment. Callbacks, by invitation, September 10th at 4 pm.
Where: The Umbrella, 40 Stow St. Concord, MA.
Auditions will consist of prepared sides selected by the director. Sides will be distributed approximately 2 weeks prior to the audition for your preparation.
Performances are scheduled for January 19th – February 4th, 2018. Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, Sundays at 3 pm.
To schedule an appointment or for questions or more information, email Brian@theumbrellaarts.org.
NOTE: ages below are suggested only. Director seeking a diverse range of ages.
Shelly Levene – Male, mid-late 50s, salesman down on his luck, lives on past glories, fears losing his job and is desperate to save his career. Incessant talker, uses a variety of tactics to achieve his ends.
John Williamson – Male, early 40s, manager of the real estate office, a company man in charge of salesmen who are older with more “street” experience; not respected by his team who believe he doesn’t really understand the business.
Dave Moss – Male, 50-60s, angry, aggressive, devious, successful salesman. Sarcastic and explosive under pressure.
George Aronow – Male, 50-60s, timid, meek and mild-mannered. Easily overpowered in conversation, panicky, frustrated, depressed, self-flagellating. Not an original thinker, not up to high pressure, cut-throat real estate world.
Richard Roma – Male, early 40s, Top-of-his-game salesman, smart, charming, quick witted, seductive, ruthless. Preening, easy talker who quickly sizes up his “prey.” Will stop at nothing to make a sale.
