UPCOMING AUDITIONS: BEYOND THERAPY and NUNSENSE

BEYOND THERAPY
Playwright: Christopher Durang
Director: John Atkin

Auditions: December 16 & 17, approximately 7pm to 9pm

Performances: March 5 through 15. 2020
(Plus one week hold for potential extension through March 22.)

Bruce meets Prudence at a restaurant. It is their first date, and they are both nervous. They shake hands. Bruce gestures her to her seat, and sits down across from her. He looks into her eyes. They share a moment. “You have beautiful breasts,” he says, and the worst date in human history is on its way. Beyond Therapy is likely Christopher Durang’s best play, and we’re thrilled to bring it back to Curtain Call after nearly 30 years! Prudence is alone in a jungle of naked ids, including her lascivious therapist Stuart , Bruce, Bruce’s lover Bob and Bruce’s therapist Mrs. Wallace, whose aphasic loopiness masks a profound hostility to her patients and to…to everyone, really. (Note: contains Adult Themes and language.)

Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of Grease. Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. Featuring star turns, tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon. With more than 5000 productions worldwide, it has been translated into 21 languages.
