Auditions for Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons”

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by not posting these corrected dates sooner.

All My Sons will be our 3rd production of the season and will be directed by Bob DeMarco.  It’s written by Arthur Miller (Death of a Salesman, The Crucible) and requires 6 men and 4 women.

SYNOPSIS:
(Drama) This play received the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play.

During the war Joe Keller and Herbert Deever ran a machine shop which made airplane parts. Deever was sent to prison because the firm turned out defective parts, causing the deaths of many men. Keller went free and made a lot of money. The twin shadows of this catastrophe and the fact that the young Keller son was reported missing during the war dominate the action. The love affair of Chris Keller and Ann Deever, the bitterness of George Deever returned from the war to find his father in prison and his father’s partner free, are all set in a structure of almost unbearable power. The climax showing the reaction of a son to his guilty father is fitting conclusion to a play electrifying in its intensity.

CREW MEMBERS & NEWBIES:

Audition nights are a perfect time to come out, meet the director, and express your interest in helping out backstage, be it in the role of a stage manager, lights & sound operator, concessions, or whatever else you might like to do.

They’re also GREAT for first-timers to come out and observe how things are done, maybe express interest in being a helper, or read for a part! You never know what can happen.
