Portal Players Dramatic Society is casting roles now for the play Looking, a comedy by Canada’s Norm Foster. Directed by Jacqollyne Keath and produced by Peter Wienold, Looking will be on stage at The Capitol Theatre in February and March of 2019.
3rd Set of Auditions:
- Tuesday, October 23, 2018
- 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at The Capitol Theatre
2 Male and 2 Female who can play mid 40s-mid 50s:
- Val (45-55) is an O.R. nurse;
- Andy (45-55) is in the storage business;
- Nina(45-55) is a police officer;
- Matt (45-55) host of a morning radio show.
Matt and Andy have shared a friendship for years. Unfortunately, they have also shared the same relationship status for years (single), and so now they reluctantly share their emotional baggage and problems whenever they get together. Val and Nina are also long-time friends; they are similarly questioning their lives. All four are ‘looking’ for more in life, looking for someone to fill the void that was left after their failed marriages. So Andy, in desperation, puts an ad in the personals column, Val in desperation reads the ad and sees some potential. With the help of their friends as buffers, they agree to a double date, meeting at a downtown pub named The Private Dick. Classic situational comedy ensues as male-female agendas meet amid first-date insecurities.
It’s a fabulously funny script full of lightning-quick dialogue and loaded with original sexual innuendos. For all of its adult frivolity, there are some tender and serious moments in this play that make for poignant and emotionally wrought acting.
