Auditions for Saturn Returns by Noah Haidle at Theatre Southwest
Directed by John Mitsakis

An astrological phenomenon presupposes that when the planet Saturn completes its cycle every thirty years of a human's life, that life is affected by deep trauma and change. The play follows Gustin, a radiologist living in Grand Rapids Michigan at the ages of 88, 58 and 28. He is inextricably bound to the women in his life. At 88 his nurse, Suzanne; at 58 his daughter, Zephyr; and at 28, his wife, Loretta. Gustin endures as the women come and go, live and die.

Sunday, July 24 at 7 pm
Monday, July 25 at 7 pm

3M, 1F

Gustin - To be played by three actors representing Gustin throughout his life at ages 28, 58, and 88.

Suzzane/Zephyr/Loretta - To be played by one actress, these are the women in Gustin's life throughout the years. His nurse at 88, his daughter at 58, and his wife at 28.

OPEN AUDITIONS FOR ISLAND ETC’S NEXT PRODUCTION

Island ETC (East-End Theatre Company) is pleased to announce open auditions for all roles in our upcoming production of DOG SEES GOD: CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BLOCKHEAD. Auditions will be held on Sunday and Monday, July 24th and 25th. Auditions will be held at ETC, 2317 Mechanic Street, Galveston and will begin at 7:00pm both evenings.

DOG SEES GOD: CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BLOCKHEAD, an ‘unauthorized parody’ by Bert V. Royal, imagine characters from the popular comic strip Peanuts as teenagers. When CB’s dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation; his sister has gone Goth; his ex-girlfriend has recently been institutionalized; and his other friends are too inebriated to give him any sort of solace. A chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of the group’s bullying offers CB a peace of mind and sets a friendship in motion that will push teen angst to the very limits.

Rehearsals for DOG SEES GOD are scheduled to begin on Monday, August 8th. Rehearsals are held Sunday through Thursdays from 7:00pm to 10:00pm. Performances are September 9th through October 1st. Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 8:00pm. There will be one Sunday matinee on September 18th at 2:30 pm.

All roles are open and available. All ethnicities are urged to audition. Age range for all characters is late-teens to 30, must be able to look and convincingly play a high schooler. All actors at ETC are paid a production stipend at the end of the run. Those auditioning are asked to bring a current headshot and resume. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.

Roles: (4 men, 4 women)

CB: (Male)- He is intensely saddened over the death of his dog and is forced to question
both his sexuality and his social status when he befriends his classmate Beethoven.

CB’s Sister: (Female)- She has gone Goth, at least for a portion of the play. It is mentioned that, like her character basis, she changes her philosophy on life often. Her other personas during the course of the play are scripted as ‘gansta-bitch’ and hippie.

Van: (Male)- As a child, he was always a philosopher, but as a teen he is now a pothead
with a worldview to match. He repeatedly attempts to pursue a sexual relationship with CB’s Sister.

Matt: (Male)- Matt is a pathological germaphobe whose dirtiness has been internalized. He is sex-obsessed and homophobic. He is a football player and CB’s best friend. He terrorizes Beethoven mercilessly.

Beethoven: (Male)- Beethoven became the school outcast prior to the events in the play. A bit of a recluse, he takes solace in playing the piano, but when he and CB become involved, his world is turned upside down.

Tricia: (Female)- Tricia is a ‘party-girl’ who professes herself to be ‘’pretty’ and ‘popular,’ but she is always drunk. She is Marcy’s best friend, though they are neither honest nor loyal to one another. Tricia makes fun of Frieda constantly.

Marcy: (Female)- Marcy is another ‘party girl.’ She has a crush on CB but goes after Matt
instead. She is Tricia's best friend, though they are not honest with or loyal to each other.

Van’s Sister:(Female) – Van’s Sister is in the mental institution after setting fire to the little red-headed girl’s hair. She is proud of CB for daring to be different instead of always being so predictable. She helps CB find himself and his inner courage.

For additional information, please visit our website at www.islandetc.org or give us a call at the theatre at
409-762-3556. Email questions may be sent to Kim Mytelka at kimdmy@aol.com. Please put Auditions in
the subject line.

Intermersive Movies
, in collaboration with BETA Theater and Dinolion, is seeking actors, improvisers and fans of the movie Rushmore for an upcoming interactive performance based on the film in Houston, TX

Auditions will be held FRIDAY, JULY 8 between 10:00 A.M. and 7:00 P.M. and will consist of sides from the film script and/or brief character improvisations. Please contact us at to schedule an appointment. (While we prefer to audition talent in person, we will accept video submissions.)

Rehearsals will be held August 6-11. Performances are scheduled for August 12 & 13.

We are looking for talent to fill the following principal roles. Resemblance to the characters in the film is a plus, though all are welcome to audition. Age and sex designations are merely a guideline. All actors will need basic skills in improvisation. All talent WILL BE PAID a stipend for the week.

MAX FISHER, male, 15 - A playwright prodigy at Rushmore Academy on scholarship. A poor student, but an ambitious organizer of extra-curricular activities. Precocious, self-assured, but not emotionally mature. Portrayed by Jason Schwartzman in the film.

HERMAN BLUME, male, 40s-50s - A wealthy businessman and benefactor of Rushmore, but utterly disaffected by what his success has brought him. Possibly manic depressive, with a childish streak that feeds his friendship/rivalry with Max. Portrayed by Bill Murray in the film.

DIRK CALLOWAY, male, 10 - Max's best friend and protégé. Portrayed by Mason Gamble in the film.

DR. GUGGENHEIM, male, 60s - Dr. Guggenheim is the Headmaster of Rushmore Academy, eternally frustrated by Max’s schemes but he respects Max’s tenacity. Portrayed by Brian Cox in the film.

IN ADDITION TO THESE PRINCIPAL ROLES, we are seeking a number of additional performers to portray supporting charactes, including but not limited to Max's girlfriend MARGARET YANG, the Scottish bully MAGNUS BUCHAN, and the mysterious South Asian groundskeeper MR. LITTLEJEANS, as well as student characters not necessarily appearing in the film - SO ALL ARE INVITED TO APPLY. These supporting roles WILL BE PAID a stipend for each performance. Send us an email at to be considered for these roles.
