The Racine Theatre Guild will be holding open auditions for “Lombardi” on Monday, August 20 and Tuesday, August 21 at 7 p.m.

Five-time NFL champion and two-time Super Bowl champion, Vince Lombardi is the man behind every Green Bay Packers’ legend. Driven by ultimate perfection, this play follows reporter Michael McCormick through a week of the Packers’ 1965 season. He discovers Lombardi’s passions and relationships on and off the field with his players, the press, and his wife, Marie.

Roles for:
1 WOMAN
– Marie Lombardi: (40s – early 60s) a wife of a certain time that loved and supported her husband above all else. She is the only person who could really challenge Lombardi.

5 MEN
– Vince Lombardi: (40s – early 60s) a hard-nosed coach for the Green Bay Packers from 1959 – 1967 who became an American icon. He is never satisfied with himself and constantly strives to push himself and those around him to be better.
– Michael McCormick: (20s – mid 30s) the narrator of the play. Ambitious, relentless, enthusiastic and inquisitive reporter on his first major assignment.
– Paul Hornung: (20s – mid 30s, athletic build) the “Golden Boy” Hall of Famer who played for the Green Bay Packers from 1957 – 1966. A trouble-maker off the field.
– Dave Robinson: (20s – mid 30s, athletic build, African-American) a linebacker for the Green Bay Packers from 1963 – 1972; he had a difficult but respectful relationship with Lombardi. Embodies pride and work ethic.
– Jim Taylor: (20s – mid 30s, athletic build) fullback for the Green Bay Packers from 1958 – 1966. Soft spoken, but dominate and unstoppable on the field. Known for punishing hits and sloughing off injuries.

No appointments necessary. Auditions consist of a cold reading from the script. Individuals with all levels of experience are invited to audition.

Scripts may be checked out in advance from the box office. The show will go into rehearsal in August and will be performed weekends October 19 – November 4.

R&J.2

The Classical Company Class presents Romeo and Juliet, this Friday and Saturday, August 10th and 11th at the Milwaukee Youth Arts Center, 325 W. Walnut Street.  Showtime is 7:00, and the price…

Nada.

Zilch.

Nothing.

I’ve worked with a bunch of these young actors for many years and I couldn’t be more impressed with their work.  Come see a Romeo and Juliet where the actors are actually the age of the title roles they are playing.

I mean not exactly.  We’re not sure of their exact birth dates…

…except for Juliet.  She was born on Lamas Eve at night fourteen years ago…

…that’s actually surprisingly exact.

But I digress.  Come see free theatre supporting some really wonderful people.

Oh, and Jennie Babisch who plays Romeo designed the program cover.  Here’s another for your viewing pleasure.

First Stage Theater Academy’s Classical Company Class Presents:
The Merchant of Venice
By William Shakespeare

Jim Fletcher, Director
Ro Spice-Kopischke, Assistant Director

What must one risk for love? For fortune? For friendship? And what is the cost of risking such things? Set in the highly polarized world of sixteenth century Venice, Shakespeare gives us no easy answers. How does one find justice in such a world where everyone is culpable? The questions Shakespeare posed four hundred years ago, are sadly ones we still face today.

Performance Dates:

Friday, August 12 at 7:00 p.m.
Saturday, August 13 at 7:00 p.m.

Admission is free! Come out to support the hard work of these incredible young performers!

Our writers are already hard at work to create tomorrow evening’s shows.  They’ve picked their subjects and locations and they’ve got about 12 hours to write a play over night.  The actors and directors get another 12 hours to stage these new plays and then we put them up in front of a live audience. After the show is over we do it again…with less time.  That’s insane!
