Auditions for Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike 

Tupelo Community Theatre will hold auditions for Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike by Christopher Durang  March 27 at 2 p.m. and March 28 at 7 p.m. at TCT Off Broadway, 213 East Franklin.  This winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play deals with middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia, who  share their deceased parents’ home in Bucks County, PA.  The two bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives when 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 worries the imperious Masha.  The siblings (1 man and 2 women) should be able to play characters between 40 and 65 years of age.  Cassandra can be any age.  Spike’s character is in his 20’s or 30’s and must feel comfortable on stage in a speedo swim suit.  Nina’s character is in her 20’s or 30’s as well.  Lynn Nelson will direct and production dates are May 19-21, 2022 at Off Broadway. For more information contact the director at or contact the TCT office at 662-844-1935.
