AUDITIONS FOR PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE

The Willits Community Theatre will hold auditions for Steve Martin’s wild and crazy comedy Picasso at the Lapin Agile at two locations, and on two dates, both of which are coming soon.
In Willits, auditions will be held at the Willits Community Theatre Playhouse, 37 West Van Lane, on Saturday May 13, beginning at 1 P.M. and continuing to 3 P.M.
In Ukiah, auditions will be held Friday, May 12 in Room 106 at the Ukiah Methodist Church, 270 North Pine Street, in Ukiah, beginning at 7 P.M. and lasting until 9 P.M.
Picasso at the Lapin Agile is Steve Martin’s hilarious rumination on what might have happened had world-historical revolutionary artist Pablo Picasso met world-historical revolutionary physicist Albert Einstein, in a small, out of the way Parisian café in 1904.
In the play, both characters discuss their main fields of interest – art and physics – and both ruminate on the unknown source of the ideas that, each feels, is about to turn the world inside out and upside down. As the play draws to its close, the twin titans of art and science are joined by a third character, who visits them from the future: a rock ‘n’ roll singer from the United States who looks and sounds a whole lot like Elvis Presley.
The result is an evening that is both a serious contemplation of genius and a unique comedy that asks, Do we really know anything at all?, and, if not, Why did Einstein and Picasso make it and Charles Dabernow Schmendiman (forgotten inventor of Schmendimite) not make it, when he was obviously better than both of them put together?
Directed by Jim Mastin, Picasso at the Lapin Agile promises to be a delightful experience for cast members and the audience alike.
The call is for 4 men, 20 to 30; 2 women, 20 to 30; 1 man, 30 to 40; 2 women, 30 to 40 and 2 men, 40 to 60. The special casting need for this show is for at least 3 dynamic young male actors to play Einstein, Picasso and Presley. The show runs in Willits from September 8 through Sept. 24.
Copies of the script will be available at the Willits Library beginning on April 21. For more information about the play please call the director, Jim Mastin, at 621-0021 or email him at jwmastin@pacific.net.
