Seeking 1 Man, 3 Women

Father Brendan Flynn
Priest of St. Nicholas Church. Charismatic, forward-thinking, from a working class background.

Sister Aloysius Beauvier
A nun of the order of Sisters of Charity.
Reserved, unsentimental. A woman of deep conviction and personal strength. She’s a no-nonsense, hardened administrator, determined to maintain order and tradition.

  Sister James
Eighth-grade teacher of Donald Muller, she is a member of the Sisters of Charity. "There's a bit of sunshine in her heart but she's reserved as well." Wants to do well for her students and the church--both her strength and her weakness.

Mrs. Muller
32-45 (African-American)
Working class, weary and wary of the world, mother of Donald Muller, the boy at the center of the play’s controversy. Dressed in her Sunday best for church, on red alert, fiercely protective of her son yet deferential to the power of the church.

Old Wicked Songs

By Jon Marans. Directed by Alex Levy
April 10, 2015 through May 3, 2015.
Performances: Fridays; 8pm. Saturdays; 2pm & 8pm. Sundays 2pm & 7pm.
Rehearsals will begin approximately 1 month prior to opening.

Auditions will be held:
October 28,2014: 7pm to 10pm
October 30, 2014: 10am to 5pm


All roles are paid.

Seeking 2 AEA or Non –Union men with local housing.

Professor Joseph Mashkan: Viennese voice teacher, 50+ years old. Eccentric, gregarious and passionate.

Stephen Hoffman: American Piano player in his 20s. Shy, awkward and arrogant. A prodigy and a loner.

Old Wicked Songs tells the story of Stephen Hoffman, an arrogant, American concert pianist, whose artistic crisis has caused him to quit his performance career. He travels to Vienna to study with a passionate, elderly professor. Through the exploration of "Dichterliebe," they rediscover their love of music.

This epiphany is achieved in the context of Austro-German history. In visiting the site of a Nazi death camp, Hoffman develops an appreciation of the holocaust's effects on the lives of his professor's generation. The action takes place in 1986, while Austrian President Kurt Waldheim is seeking reelection. Revelations regarding Waldheim's Nazi past add immediacy to this exploration of identity.

Both roles call for high-level piano skills and moderate singing ability. Please be prepared to play a short classical piece and sing 16 bars of anything that reveals your vocal, and pitch ability. Sides will be sent upon scheduling an audition appointment.

To secure an appointment please indicate what day and time you are available. Please include your photo and resume and your best telephone number in your audition request. Send your request with OWS in the subject line to Jane at:
