AUDITIONS FOR NIGHT WATCH - a great thriller! Reading Tuesday 27 August 7.45 pm, Auditions Tuesday 2 and Wednesday 3 September at 7.30 pm. Director Yvette Owen.07/08/19
Please read the central panel above to find out more about the play. Here are the characters we'll be auditioning for:
Elaine Wheeler – Leading Role (30s-50s) A beautiful, married heiress with a troubled past. Elaine is strong-willed, yet, given recent events, on the edge of sanity with what she sees and struggles with whom she can trust. Often frantic and full of fear, this actress must be able to drive the true suspense and mystery of this story.
John Wheeler – Leading Role – Elaine’s second husband. Very dominating and in control. He is concerned, yet exasperated, by Elaine’s visions. The audience will come to have mixed feelings about his responses to her plight.
Helga – Nosy and bold. Works as a maid for the Wheeler family. Must have a German accent.
Blanche Cook – Beautiful young nurse. Elaine’s best friend. Sympathetic and seemingly truly concerned, Blanche must gain the audience’s trust, if not Elaine’s!
Vanelli – A handsome, young Italian cop with an interest in art.
Lieutenant Walker – Assigned to investigate Elaine’s claims. Grows increasingly frustrated and believes Elaine has no evidence to warrant what she has seen.
Curtis Appleby – Nosy neighbour that lives in the apartment across the way. Elaine is suspicious of his activity. Very flamboyant and somewhat creepy.
Dr. Tracey Lake – Dr. Tracey comes to evaluate Elaine. Oddly, calls Elaine, who is 10 years her senior, “child”. She is calm, professional and somewhat cool.
Sam Hoke – Local business owner, famous for his potato salad. Sam is very infuriated by Elaine’s claims, as it is severely affecting his business. This character must make a splash!
Director Yvette Owen - recently director of The Laramie Project and The Lieutenant of Inishmore
