April 16-19
In-person auditions for roles for women and men in Hamilton-Gibson’s production of “Dead Man’s Cell Phone” are being scheduled for this Friday night, April 16 beginning at 7 p.m., Saturday afternoon, April 17 at 4 p.m. and Monday night, April 19 at 7 p.m. in the Warehouse Theatre at 3 Central Avenue in Wellsboro.
All “Dead Man’s Cell Phone” auditions are by appointment only. To schedule a time to audition on April 16, 17 or 19 or to arrange a different day and time to audition, contact Hamilton-Gibson Productions by calling 570-724-2079 or emailing Social distancing and wearing a mask are required.
“All ages, races and types are heartily welcome to audition,” said Gabe Hakvaag who is directing the play.
Four to six actors will portray the following characters: Jean, a woman; Gordon, a dead man; Mrs. Gottlieb, Gordon’s mother; Hermia, Gordon’s widow; Dwight, Gordon’s brother; and The Other Woman, a stranger.
“Dead Man’s Cell Phone” tells the story of a woman, Jean, who is bothered by a cell phone that keeps ringing, although the man seated at the table doesn’t seem to notice. Eventually, she storms over, picks up the phone and answers several calls, pretending to speak for the man named Gordon, before realizing he is dead.
This modern fable, written by highly respected American playwright, Sarah Ruhl, explores the paradox of modern technology’s ability to both unite and isolate people in the digital age. “Ruhl prefers to capture everyday actions within a mythic framework, telling stories the way fables are told: this thing happened, then this and then this. The results are stories that are both delicate and hilariously funny, simply charming but with teeth that bite,” Hakvaag said.
“Ruhl’s productions are intentionally highly imaginative and collaborative, and cast members are expected to bring creative problem solving along with acting skills to the production,” said Hakvaag. He has directed many HG productions, such as “Miss Holmes,” “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest”, and “Fools In Love” as well as selections for Tune In To Radio HG, Hamilton-Gibson’s annual radio play festival.
