Auditions in Jackson for Death of a Salesman
by Off Square Theatre Company
February 15, 2005
Have you always wanted to be in a stage performance? The Off Square Theatre Company in Jackson will be holding auditions for Arthur Miller’s classic American drama, Death of a Salesman on February 27 & 28th.
Considered by many to be the greatest American play ever written, Death of a Salesman explores the twilight of Willy Loman: salesman, father, husband and dreamer as he confronts the scattered remains of a lifetime of failures, both personal and professional.
Auditions will take place at Off Square Theatre Company, upstairs at the Pink Garter in Jackson, on Sunday, February 27 and Monday, February 28, at 7 pm. Guest Director, Peter Lesnick, will direct Death of a Salesman. He is currently Executive Director of the Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beach, California.
Death of a Salesman explores the dark side of the "American Dream". The play has a number of riveting characters (eight men and five women), including Willy’s long-suffering wife, Linda, and his sons Happy and Biff. The role of Willy Loman will be played by Off Square’s Artistic Director, Bob Berky. All other roles are open for casting. Actors are invited to read the play before auditions. Off Square has scripts that may be signed out with a $10 deposit.
The Off Square Theatre Company is a year-round professional theatre producing and presenting quality theatre and theatre education for Jackson Hole and surrounding communities.
