Auditions coming up for SCP productions

Seneca Community Players holds open auditions for its newest stage production, “The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?,” a unsettling, challenging, outrageously funny play, at 7 p.m., Jan. 13 and 14 at SCP headquarters, Cowing St., canalside, Seneca Falls. Parts are available for three men and one woman. Interested individuals should come ready to read. No additional preparation is required; scripts will be provided. Participants should bring a list of potential rehearsal conflict dates.Edward Albee’s “The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?” tells the story of Martin, a world-class architect with a loving wife, a devoted son, and a secret so extreme it threatens to destroy them all. An award-winning drama that pushes the limits of love past the point of no return, “The Goat” is for mature audiences only and contains adult themes, sexual references and strong language.Actors are needed for the following roles: “Martin” – 50, a successful architect and loving family man; “Stevie” – 40-50, a smart, loving wife and mother; “Billy” – 17, the sensitive gay son of Martin & Stevie; and “Ross” – 50, a documentary film maker and best friend of Martin.”This show is funny, serious, startling and provocative,” stated SCP president Donna Russell. “Its characters are smart, engaging and uncompromising.” Exploring the limits of love and tolerance, “The Goat” is usually the kind of play only performed in large cities. “We’re very excited to be presenting such an audacious theatrical piece. We’re thrilled to be offering our audiences the chance to see and talk about this stunning work.””The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?” will be performed Feb. 27, 28, and March 1, 6 and 7 in the Delavan Theatre on the New York Chiropractic College campus in Seneca Falls at 7 p.m., 2 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $8 in advance; $10 at the door. Starting in February, they may be purchased at WomanMade Products in Seneca Falls, Area Records and Music in Geneva, by calling 315-568-9364, and online at www.SenecaCommunityPlayers.org.
