Auditions for the Possum Point Players' production of the 2013 Tony Award-winning comedy “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike" on March 7 and 8.
Possum Point Players is accepting video auditions of its spring music revue “Broadway Springs Back” through Feb. 26.

Possum Point Players will host auditions for its upcoming original music revue “Broadway Springs Back” and, for those with trouble carrying a tune, the 2013 Tony Award-winning comedy “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.”  

Audition videos for “Broadway Springs Back” will be accepted until Feb. 26. Created and directed by Steven Dow and Stacey Hartman, this full-length stage production will feature up to 10 singers and two to three nonsinging performers. All songs are from Broadway productions and, as Dow said, “In keeping with our lives and the world in general these days, the theme is hope and happiness — or the lack thereof. Whichever, Broadway, and all of us, will spring back.”  

Auditions for “Broadway Springs Back” are strictly by video submission. Videos should be uploaded via the Audition Form, available at bit.ly/2NyywEp; if videos can’t be uploaded, they can be emailed to broadwayspringsback@gmail.com. Videos submitted by singers should be up to two minutes of a Broadway song; those submitted by nonsinging actors should include a reading of a monologue listed on possumpointplayers.org. Questions can be sent to broadwayspringsback@gmail.com. 

Performance dates for “Broadway Springs Back” are April 16-18, with April 23-25 reserved as a rain or reservation overflow weekend. This music revue is scheduled to be performed on the newly constructed outdoor stage at Possum Hall. 

Auditions for the Christopher Durang comedy “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” are scheduled for 2 p.m. March 7 and 6 p.m. March 8. in Possum Hall, 441 Old Laurel Road, Georgetown. If necessary, callbacks will be at 6 p.m. March 9. Director Peter Cuesta will cast two men, one in his 50s and one in his 20s, and four women, two in their 50s, one in her 20s and one of flexible age range. 

Auditions for “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” will consist of selected cold readings from the script. Those auditioning should be prepared for interpretation of their desired character. Character descriptions and a brief overview of the show are included at possumpointplayers.org.
