Breakdown
The Seagull– the familiar ensemble story, with doubling and some gender shifts.

For these plays we are seeking versatile actors with solid training who can embody the spirit and style of these roles. Open to a larger age range than would apply in more traditional casting, as well as outside-the-box interpretations of beauty, sexiness, strength, etc. All roles require a sense of humor risk-taking, and collaborative spirit. Please see role breakdowns below.

Seeking:

Konstantin Gavrilovich Treplev
One of the play’s four protagonists, Treplev is Arkadina’s only son. He struggles to find his voice as a writer in the shadow of his successful actress mother and her lover, the writer Trigorin, both of whom are members of the elite Russian intelligensia and artistic community. Treplev is impatient, self- defeating and childish. His need for love and approval torments him. He attempts to createnew forms in dramatic writing and literature that reflect the new wave of symbolist writing that emerged in Russia during Chekhov’s time. His writing parodies Chekhov’s own work. Treplev is a dreamer and a compassionate soul who fills the void of affection in his life with self-doubt.

Irina Nikolayevna Arkadina
Arkadina, a protagonist of The Seagull is a renowned Russian actress who stars in grand, melodramatic plays. She is the mother of Treplev, the lover of Trigorin, and the sister of Sorin. Her arrival at Sorin’s country estate is the highlight of the year for the workers there and her family. She is a member of the intelligensia and artistic community in Russia to which her son, Treplev longs to belong. Stubborn, vain, stingy, and beautiful, Arkadina is a selfish mother and doting lover. She loves attention and is not afraid to ask for it. Her competitive spirit selfishly discourages Treplev’s creative spirit and contirbutes to her obsession with looking and feeling young.

Nina Mikhailovna Zarechnaya
Nina is a nineteen-year-old neighbor of Sorin’s estate who grew up in an estate bordering the same lake that acts as a backdrop for the play. She is one of the four protagonists of the play. Nina’s mother died when she was young and left her fortune to her husband, Nina’s father, without leaving any inheritance for Nina. Her father remarried and put all of the money in her stepmother’s name, contributing to Nina’s insecure future. The play characters talk about how cruel Nina’s father is to her and how Nina can only be in the company of Sorin’s family when her father and stepmother do not know she is in their company. Nina is in love with Treplev or perhaps in love with the idea that Treplev can bring her close to his mother, an actress, which is what Nina wants to become. Naïve, smart, idealistic, and willing to take risks, Nina is a hopeless romantic who longs for a stage career. Her pursuit of Trigorin’s heart reveals her overestimated innocence by those around her and her ambitious side.

Boris Alexeyevich Trigorin
Arkadina’s lover, Trigorin, one of the four protagonists, is an esteemed Russian writer of fiction stories and novels. Like Arkadina, Trigorin is a member of the the elite Russian intelligensia and artistic community. He begins as a dutiful lover to Arkadina but becomes tempted by the youthful beauty, optimism, and flattery of Nina. Trigorin’s favorite hobby is fishing. He is an obsessive- compulsive writer and somewhat aloof to the family and friends on the estate, preferring to observe the surroundings for details for his stories or fishing in the lake than gossiping, bragging, philosophizing, or playing parlor games. Trigorin feels that he lost out on his youth and on youthful romantic experiences because he was so busy trying to seek out a writing career for himself in those days. He uses this as an excuse for having the affair with Nina. Trigorin is not directly competitive with the jealous Treplev, but does not encourage him either. Trigorin often seems like a reluctant but acquiescing member of the clan.

Sorin
Sorin is the sixty-year-old landowner of the estate where the play takes place. He spent his life working for a government office and retired to his country farm. Sorin is the brother of Arkadina and the uncle to Treplev. His health deteriorates during the course of the play. Sorin is a patient listener, a confidant, and a compassionate admirer of both his nephew and sister’s talents. He is disappointed with his life’s decisions its outcome; he once wished to find love and be a successful writer and never acquired either wish. Sorin sees himself in the young Treplev and asks his sister Arkadina to be easier on Treplev’s vulnerable confidence. Sorin can be wistful, nostalgic and wise.

Yevgeny Sergeyevich Dorn
Dorn is a local doctor who was once a popular and handsome ladies’ man. Dorn often provides an outsider’s perspective to the play for he functions almost as an audience member on stage. He is less vital to the desires and distresses on stage, but he is important as a fluid observer and commentator, confidant, and witness to the events. He has known Arkadina, Sorin, and the rest for many years. Dorn has affections for Paulina but does not seem to be in love with her. Like Sorin, Dorn is a compassionate presence who respects Treplev’s talent and attempts to soften the blow of Arkadina’s ego on her depressed son, Treplev’s, spirit.

Masha
Masha is the daughter of Paulina and Shamrayev, the managers of Sorin’s farm. She wears all black all of the time because she is depressed and hates her life. A heavy drinker and snuff addict, Masha’s repressed, unrequited feelings for Treplev torment her. She is pursued by the poor schoolteacher, Medvedenko, who has a mediocre, obsequious personality, which complicates the situation. Masha is critical and unsympathetic to her admirer, Medvedenko even though she herself is in his same, unrequited position in her love triangle with Treplev. She feels sorry for herself and her undramatic life. Masha marries Medvedenko but keeps her love for Treplev burning strong. Like many Chekhovian characters, Masha gives in to the disappointments in life and accepts them, surviving the unfulfilled dreams with the hope of change and renewal in moving and forgetting.

Ilya Afanasyevich Shamrayev
Shamrayev is father to Masha and husband to Paulina. He acts as the manager of Sorin’s farm and household year round. Shamrayev adores Arkadina’s fame and fortune and close ties to Russian artists. He flatters her and attentively listens to her boasts and the details of her life in the theatre. But when it comes to the horses and running the farm, Shamrayev is argumentative about his control. He is cruel and unsympathetic to his daughter’s admirer and later, husband, Medvedenko, and unattentive and embarrsassing to his wife, Paulina.

Semyon Semyonovich Medvedenko
Medvedenko is a local schoolteacher who is poor and must support his family at home while later supporting his new family with Masha. He is a boring conversationalist because he spends most of his time complaining about his poverty. Medvedenko pursues the melancholy Masha, eventually winning her hand in marriage, out of convenience and a hope of change, not love.

Paulina Andryevna
Paulina is the mother of Masha and the wife of Shamrayev, who mages Sorin’s estate. Unhappy in her loveless marriage, she is often embarrassed by Shamrayev’s arguments with the Arkadina, their employer’s famous sister. She loves Dorn but is jealous and unsatisfied by his aloof affection for her. Paulina sees her own misery in her daughter, Masha’s unrequited love for Treplev and compromising marriage to Medvedenko, that she encourages Treplev to pay attention to Masha out of pity.

A hired workman.

The Cook
A worker on Sorin’s estate.

SEEKING POTENTIAL FUTURE REPLACEMENTS FOR THE FOLLOWING:

Miss Trunchbull (Male actor 30’s – Early 40’s) **MUST be 6 foot plus** Headmistress of Crunchem Hall Primary School. Once a famous athlete, she is described as a ”Gigantic Holy terror,” a ”fierce tyrannical monster” who ”marches like a storm trooper with long arms swinging” with an ”aura of menace.” Must be high baritone with a strong top F sharp. Must be physically fit and agile- able to convincingly play a ”woman.” This is NOT a drag role.

Miss Honey (Female 20’s – Early 30’s) A mild, quiet person who never raises her voice and seldom seems to smile, yet possesses the rare gift of being adored by every child under her care. She should have a curious warmth that should be almost tangible. Physically should be ”slim and fragile that if she fell over she would smash into a thousand pieces like a porcelain figure.” Vocally needs a sweet, melodic, and pure sounding voice. Could even have a slightly folksy quality. Soprano up to Bb, with a strong and solid belt up to D.

Mrs. Wormwood (Female Late 20’s – Early 30’s) Mother of Michael and Matilda, and wife of Mr. Wormwood. She is obsessed with her amateur Ballroom dancing and her looks. Like her husband she thinks very little of Matilda’s unique abilities and often berates her. She is as loud in her makeup and dress sense as she is in her voice – MUST have strong comedy. Needs a really strong belt voice, with matching vocal stamina. The number ”Loud” is a hard sing, and requires a very strong tone, up to top F/G – with higher ad libs. Should have strong dance-Latin a particular advantage.

Mr. Wormwood (Male Late 20’s –30’s) Matilda’s father. A dealer in second-hand cars, ”a mean crooked crook” with a penchant for wearing jackets with large, brightly colored checks. Physically should have a weaselly or ratty essence. Should ideally be a clown with an ex-punk rocker vocal. Needs to be agile, with precise enunciation and have a firm rhythmic sense.

Mrs. Phelps (Female 30’s – 40’s) Seeking an African American actress who is comfortable with a Caribbean or African accent. Warm and nurturing local librarian who encourages Matilda’s love of reading.

ROSEMARY

Breakdown

In the late 16th century. Miguel de Cervantes (a tax collector, soldier, and author) and his assistant, Sancho, foreclose on a church that failed to pay its taxes. The two men are thrown into prison by the Spanish Inquisition. The prisoners steal Cervantes’s possessions. However, he convinces them to allow him to win back a package of seemingly worthless papers in a mock trial. Cervantes reenacts the story of Don Quixote of La Mancha, the passionate and poignant tale of a noble knight who lives and loves in a romantic world where he battles all evil and can right all wrongs. He cannot see that chivalry has died. Moved by his story, the prisoners return Cervantes’ manuscript (which turns out to be his unfinished novel about Don Quixote) just before he is called before the Inquisition.

SEEKING

DON QUIXOTE/CERVANTES
50s. Baritone to F. an actor, playwright, would-be knight. The errant knight, who only sees the good in life. Refuses to see the evil in the world. He’s either crazy or the sanest of all. ROLE CAST.

SANCHO
40s-50s. Tenor – Middle C to G. Very loyal. He has served Quixote/Cervantes for many years and is devoted to him, even with all his vagaries. He is able to see the humor in situations, even in the midst of all of the travail they face. (Does not have to be short and squat, more interested in casting a warm, loving, funny man.)

The following are all prisoners but take on the following roles in acting out Don Quixote’s play. The prisoners also play various Guards and Men of the Inquisition.

ALDONZA/DULCINEA
mid-30s-40s. Soprano Ab to Ab with Belt. Raw, gutsy and sexy. The kitchen wench/prostitute who Don Quixote falls in love with and tries to make a lady. She almost believes him, until she is brutally attacked by other prisoners (muleteers).

INNKEEPER/GOVENOR
40s-60s. Bass -Low G to C# A large and powerful man, he is kind as the Innkeeper, but as the Governor, he is the powerful but fair leader of the inmate society in the prison. ROLE CAST.

DR. CORRASCO/DUKE/KNIGHT OF THE MIRRORS
30s-40s. Baritone Middle C up to Db. Antonia’s fiancé. Loves money, power and prestige. He thinks Don Quixote is a madman and insists that he comes home for treatment. As the character of the Duke, he is second in command in the inmate society.

PADRE
40s- 50s. Tenor – up to G. Kindly, sympathetic cleric. Also plays the CAPTAIN OF THE INQUISITION, a large, imposing and cruel man.

HOUSEKEEPER
40s 50s. Mezzo F to F. Strong of body and religious/moral convictions. Loves Quixote and worries about him and his state of mind.
