Additional Auditions for Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

Tupelo Community Theatre will hold an additional audition for Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike by Christopher Durang  March 31st 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 lynn_nelson@hotmail.com or contact the TCT office at 662-844-1935.

Tickets for Deathtrap

TCT is excited to announce tickets for the murder mystery Deathtrap are available for you to purchase.  

Comfortably ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a dry spell which has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college—a thriller that Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway smash. Sidney’s plan, devised with his wife’s help, is to offer collaboration to the student for co-credit. Or is it? DEATHTRAP provides twists and turns of devilish cleverness, and offers hilariously sudden shocks in such abundance that audiences will be spellbound until the very last moment.

Production dates for the show are January 27-29 at 7:30 p.m. and the 29th at 2 p.m. at the Lyric.  Tickets  are $20 for adults and $10 for students and younger.  To reserve your seats for the performance, call the TCT office at 662-844-1935 Monday-Friday 9 a.m.– 3 p.m.  See you at the Lyric soon!
