New Audition Dates for Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

Auditions for Valley Players’ production of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike by Christopher Durang will be held on Thursday, November 16 and Monday, November 20 at 6:30 pm on stage at the Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater in Yountville.  Directed by Carla Spindt, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike will play the first weekend in February, 2018 at the Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater.

Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play! Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia share a home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives. Suddenly, their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra, who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha.

Thursday and Monday, November  16 & 20 at 6:30 pm.

4 women, 2 men. Resume and headshot requested, but not mandatory. Cold reading. No pay, non-AEA. Rehearsals will take place in Napa. Please bring a list of any dates you are unavailable for rehearsal between 11/30/17 and 2/4/18.
