2 mins read

Coastal Stage Productions is hosting auditions for its 2020 Theatre Season opener, Doubt: A Parable, the winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award.

The play is written by John Patrick Shanley and directed locally by Luke Cleveland.

Auditions are being held at 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 9 and Tuesday, Dec. 10 at the CSP Workshop at 1013 Charles Street.

The show dates are weekends from Jan. 24 to Feb. 2, 2020 at Coastal Stage at AMVETS in Port Royal. Rehearsals are held weekly in Beaufort.

In this drama, Sister Aloysius, a Bronx Catholic school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects the young Father Flynn of improper relations with one of the male students. The action takes place during the fall of 1964.

Characters

Actors must be able to portray suggested ages. All ages are up for consideration.

Sister Aloysius Beauvier – Age 50-60. The head nun and principal of St Nicholas School. Driven by a high sense of duty, but rigid and conservative.

Father Brendan Flynn – Age 35-50. A middle aged priest. Articulate and personable. Perhaps he has a secret to hide.

Sister James – Age 18-30. A young, impressionable nun. Enthusiastic but inexperienced teacher. Eager to please.

Mrs. Muller – Age 35-45. The mother of Donald Muller, the school’s first African American student. She suspects the abuse. (Must be played by a black actress)

Actors should prepare a 1-2 minute dramatic monologue and be prepared to read sides. The director may request that you attend Monday and Tuesday’s auditions.
