Auditions for “The Weir” July 18th, 20th, and 22nd

The Hard Bargain Players are pleased to announce auditions for “The Weir”, our fall 2017 show.  The players have a tradition of putting on a “spooky” show in October, and this year is no exception!

Show Synopsis: In a bar in rural Ireland, the local men swap spooky stories in an attempt to impress a young woman from Dublin who recently moved into a nearby “haunted” house. However, the tables are soon turned when she spins a yarn of her own.

Audition Dates and Times: Tuesday, July 18th and Thursday, July 20th at 7 pm, and Saturday, July 22nd at 10 am (this date/time will also be used as callbacks if needed).

Audition Location: Hard Bargain Amphitheater, 2001 Bryan Point Road, Accokeek, Maryland.  Please note, July 20th and July 22nd auditions will be held at the top of the hill. July 18th auditions will be held on the amphitheater stage.

Cast Needed:
4 males, 1 female

Jack – ages 50-60
Brendan – ages late 20s- mid 30s
Jim – ages late 30s-50
Finbar – ages 40-50
Valerie – ages late 20s- mid 30s

*Please note that you do not have to fit exactly into the age groupings but must be able to play these ages convincingly.*

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Irish accents will be used for this show but are not necessary for auditions. (However, feel free to prepare your accent for auditions if you wish!)

Show dates are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm from October 6 – 21, 2017. Be prepared to list conflict dates leading up to the show. Rehearsals will be determined based on actor availability.
