Theatre West is issuing an audition call for their production of The Dinner Party, a comedy by Neil Simon. The director is Wes Ryan. He played the ghost of John Barrymore in I Hate Hamlet and directed Blame It On Beckett last season.
Auditions will be held at the theatre located at 3536 HWY 101 in Lincoln City on Sunday and Monday, December 18 and 19 at 7:00 P.M.
The play will run from March 2 through March 25, 2017. It will be presented on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 P.M. with call at 6:30 P.M. There will be a Sunday matinee at 2:00 P.M. on a date to be determined after the play is cast.
The cast consists of three women and three men.
This is the third play of the Theatre West season celebrating Neil Simon. Here is a decidedly French dinner party served up in a chaotic mode that only a master of comedy could create. Five people are invited to dine at a first rate restaurant in Paris. They do not know who the other guests will be or why they have been invited. Tossed together in a private dining room, they have a sneaking suspicion that this unorthodox dinner party will forever change their lives. John Ritter and Henry Winkler starred in the wildly successful Kennedy Center production and on Broadway.
