What do lightsabers, a courtroom drama,
velociraptors, and a barbershop quartet have in common? They are
all part of Hole in the Wall Theater’s 2015 season finale -
ENRON. Auditions will be held
5/17 & 18 @ Hole in the Wall
Theater, 116 Main St., 7pm–10pm. Possible callbacks will be
5/20. Hailed as a thrilling corporate Macbeth, Lucy Prebble’s
smash London hit, ENRON, follows the rise and fall of the
ill-fated Texas energy giant as told through the lens of some of
its most infamous players. Inspired by real-life events and
using music, dance and video, ENRON explores one of the most
infamous scandals in financial history, reviewing the tumultuous
1990s and casting a new light on the financial turmoil in which
the world currently finds itself. With sharp dialogue, intense
courtroom drama, dark humor, vaudevillian theatrics, and a trio
of velociraptors, ENRON is more than a case study, it is a
cautionary tale of greed, power, corporate sociopathy, human
nature, and the dangers of blindly following “the smartest men
in the room.” Actors will be asked to read from the script.
Although this is NOT a musical, there is some light singing.
Actors interested in singing roles will be asked to sing up to
16 bars a cappella. Actors with skills in puppetry, juggling,
and other unusual talents are strongly encouraged. Actors are
also asked to come in “business attire” if possible. A Note On
This Script: Although there are a few “Principal” Roles, this
script comes alive through its ensemble. Actors will be
challenged to portray multiple roles and characters with
meaningful scene work and significant stage time. The vibrant
and involved ensemble creates the world of chaos in which the
story unfolds. They are Stock Analysts, Traders, Reporters,
Lawyers, Lehman Brothers, Arthur Anderson, Ramsey & Hewitt,
Congresswomen, Senators, Federal Marshalls, and just about
everything else under the sun. For additional questions, please
e-mail the director, Emily Trudeau at
SHOW DATES: July 17-Aug 8. Rehearsals will be somewhat flexible.
Please let the director know your conflicts at the time of
auditions, as most can be accommodated.

The Fox on the Fairway, a tribute from
Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) to the great
English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, The Fox On the Fairway
takes audiences on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug out from
underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled
with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top
romantic shenanigans, it's a furiously paced comedy that recalls
the Marx Brothers' classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about
love, life, and man's eternal love affair with... golf. This
show is directed by Becky Rush, assisted by Aimee Baker.
Auditions will be held at The Majestic Theatre’s rehearsal
studios at 922 Elm Street Suite 315. The Majestic Theatre will
