DIRT DOGS THEATRE Co.

COMEDY/DRAMA AUDITION

Non-Equity


Glengarry Glen Ross

By David Mamet

Directed by Malinda L. Beckham


Needed:

7 Male Actors (30’s-60’s)


About the show:

Winner of the 1984 Pulitzer Prize, David Mamet's scalding comedy is about small-time, cutthroat real estate salesmen trying to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their fair share of the American dream.


Here is Mamet at his very best, writing with brutal power about the tough life of tough characters who cajole, connive, wheedle, and wheel and deal for a piece of the action -- where closing a sale can mean a brand new Cadillac, but losing one can mean losing it all.


Glengarry Glen Ross opens at The MATCH – Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston on Friday, March 10, 2017 and will run for 6 performances (March 10, 11, 17, &18 @ 8:00pm; March 12 @ 2:00pm; March 16 @ 7:30pm). Rehearsals start in early January, 2017 and will be held in the evenings, Monday through Thursday, and on weekends during daytime hours.


Auditions: Sunday, December 4th @ 6pm

Callbacks: Tuesday, December 6th @ 7pm

The MATCH – 3400 Main Street, Houston 77002

Email info@DirtDogsTheatre.org for an appointment. You will be assigned an audition time.

Come prepared with a 1 - 1 1/2 minute contemporary monologue.

Bring a headshot, resume, and schedule/conflicts for January-March, 2017 to the audition.

TSW will hold auditions Oct. 30th and Nov. 1st at 7 pm for "A Thousand Clowns" (a classic comedy by Herb Gardner), directed by David Hymel.
This benchmark of Broadway comedy produced one of theatre's most beloved roles: Unconventional Murray, uncle to precocious nephew, Nick. Tired of writing cheap comedy gags for "Chipper the Chipmunk", Murray finds himself unemployed with plenty of free time to pursue his...pursuits. Hounded by "the system", Murray is paid a visit by bickering, uptight social workers, Sandra and Albert, and finds himself solving their problems, as well as most of his own.
Show opens New Years' Eve and runs Fridays & Saturdays, Dec. 31 through Jan. 21 at 8 pm, with 2 Sunday Matinees (Jan 8 & 15) at 3 pm.

Cast (5 males/1 female) includes Murray Burns (30-45 M); Nick Burns (age 12-14 M); Albert Amundson (25-39 M); Sandra Markowitz (25-35 F); Arnold Burns (35-49 M); Leo Herman (40-49 M)

Auditions will be held at TSW, 8944-A Clarkcrest in Houston and will consist of cold readings from the script. Please bring a résumé and headshot. Actors are encouraged to attend both nights of auditions.
Rehearsals begin first week of Nov. and are held evenings Sundays-Thursdays.
