Auditions for Waterworks Players’ production of Yalta are being delayed one week. The auditions were due to take place on September 1st, but they will now take place one week later on Sunday September 8th and 9th. In addition, Yalta will open one week later on October 18th.
It’s almost the end of World War II and the Allied leaders of the United States, Great Britain, and the Soviet Union meet at the resort city of Yalta to plan the final defeat of Nazi Germany.
This new play by Hampden-Sydney professor Dirk Johnson has had two readings in New York and will be debuted in a full production at Waterworks. Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin are meeting for a “now what” discussion. It’s also the inception of the United Nations. This inside look at their suggestions, likes, and dislikes, makes for an intriguing personal look at what makes “famous men” tick.
Dudley Sauve will direct the production.
We are seeking 12 male and 3 female actors of various ages.
Auditions will be held at 7:30 pm on Sunday and Monday, September 8 & 9 at the Waterworks Theater. There will be cold readings from the script. In addition, we need a number of stage hands to assist during technical week rehearsals and the four public performances.
The show runs October 18, 19, 25, 26 at 8pm. There is also a matinee on October 20 at 2pm.
