CLO Cabaret

What: Auditions for THE 39 STEPS
Director: Guy Stroman
Adapted by: Patrick Barlow
Principals must be available May 2-August 28


Where: CLO Academy - 130 CLO Academy Way


When: Sunday, February 7 from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Callbacks will take place Monday, February 8, Time TBD


Character Descriptions:
Seeking a company of four actors who play all of the roles in THE 39 STEPS. All actors must be superb technicians who can create many different characters and utilize many different accents.

Richard Hannay: Mid 30s/early 40s Male. An attractive, world-traveled and world-weary Englishman in the manner of Ronald Coleman/Robert Donat. An everyman caught up, by circumstance, in mystery, murder and espionage.

Annabella Schmidt/Margaret/Pamela: Mid 20s/mid 30s Female. Will portray a mysterious and seductive European spy, a simple Scottish farmer's wife and a plucky, resourceful and intrepid young English woman. 

Clowns 1 and 2: Two versatile actors capable of playing a variety of specific roles with a variety of British accents, all grounded in reality and honesty. They are not "clowns" in the circus sense, but in the style of the English Music Hall/Vaudeville "quick change" acts, with split-second timing and inventiveness.
