Blue Slipper announces auditions for Alice Invents a Little Game and Alice Always Wins, by award-winning memoirist and poet Nick Flynn. This play will kick off the 2023-24 season at Livingston’s Blue Slipper Theatre. Auditions will take place at the theater located at 113 E. Callender St.
Parts are available for four actors: two women (one who can play a teenager, though actual age is less important, and one 30s – 60s) and two men (20s – 50s). No prepared material is necessary: there will be an opportunity to review excerpts from the script prior to auditioning. The production, directed by Marc Beaudin, will run weekends, Sept. 29 through Oct. 8.
The play features four strangers who meet on a New York City sidewalk during a blackout. Unable to make sense of their predicament, let alone alter it, the four float aimlessly in and out of seeming reality only to find themselves even more lost when the electricity finally comes back on.
Blue Slipper has been bringing a wide-range of community theatre to Livingston since 1964. It can be found online at blueslipper.org. For more information, call 222-7720.
