Anyone interested in performing on stage at Theatre Charlotte is welcome to audition. For musicals, generally you will be required to prepare a song and bring the sheet music to the audition and come dressed to move. For non-musicals you will most likely be asked to read scenes from the script. Perusal copies of scripts are often available for those interested in auditioning. Rehearsals are usually held Sunday through Thursday evenings. Theatre Charlotte is committed to diversity on our stage and in our audience. We strongly encourage actors of color to audition.
The Odd Couple
Theatre Charlotte will hold auditions for The Odd Couple on December 8 and 9 at 7:00pm. Readings will be from the script. Headshots and resumes helpful, but not required. Need only attend one of the audition dates.
All roles are open. Age range of all cast is between 35-55. This production will be directed by Jill Bloede, with public performances January 31 — February 16 (12 performances.)
- Oscar (the sloppy one): Oscar Madison, a carefree, good-natured, divorced sportswriter who lives alone in a messy eight-room New York apartment. He is completely oblivious to dirt, clutter, and the overdue child-support payments about which his wife telephones weekly. He has his male cronies in for a weekly poker game with refreshments that invite food poisoning.
- Felix (the neat one): Felix Ungar, a fussy man who knows that he is difficult to live with but cannot—or will not—make any concessions or compromises. His wife, unwilling to continue their marriage, asks him to leave the family despite his suicide threat, and he then moves in with Oscar.
- Speed: A man of simple tastes who enjoys the male camaraderie of the weekly poker sessions. He is disgusted when Felix turns their poker nights into "tea parties."
- Murray: An atypical New York policeman, a good-natured clod who will never become a detective.
- Roy: Oscar's accountant. Somewhat critical of Oscar's behavior, Roy routinely loans him money to "stay in the game."
- Vinnie: A cheapskate who goes to Florida in midsummer to take advantage of low rates and who leaves the poker game when he is ahead.
- Gwendolyn Pigeon & Cecily Pigeon: English sisters who live in the apartment building. Attractive, intellectually lightweight, and somewhat flirtatious.
