A third round of auditions/call backs will be held on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 25 in the afternoon. The final schedule will be posted on our Facebook page (please be sure to check there)!
Those interested in auditioning should:
*prepare a :30 monologue of your choice, if possible (sides will also be available)
*bring a theatre resume listing previous experience, if possible (saves you time from filling out the audition form!)
*plan to hang around for a bit to read with others!
NEXT FALL will be directed by Brandi George. Auditions will be open, and those interested can stop by the space at any time! This play will be ensemble-driven, so auditions will include a lot of group readings. Casting will be based on acting ability and ensemble chemistry.
Rehearsals will be held in the evenings two or three times per week (depending on schedules) through March, April, and May and occasionally on weekends. This spread out schedule means the commitment will be low-moderate for the first month but become incredibly focused by mid-April. Cast members will be required to attend all tech rehearsals (the week prior to performances). This schedule will be made with cast conflicts in mind.
UPDATED: There will be SIX performances:
Thursday, May 18 at 8PM
Friday, May 19 at 8PM
Saturday, May 20 at 8PM
Thursday, May 25 at 8PM
Friday, May 26 at 8PM

"NEXT FALL takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment, and unconditional love. While the play’s central story focuses on the five-year relationship between Adam and Luke, NEXT FALLS goes beyond a typical love story. This timely and compelling new American play forces us all to examine what it means to “believe” and what it might cost us not to."
“The funniest heartbreaker in town! NEXT FALL embodies something theatergoers have been sorely missing, perhaps without knowing it, for years. A smart, sensitive, immensely appealing, and utterly contemporary New York comedy.” – The New York Times
Adam (male; mid-30s - 40’s-ish): a substitute teacher. Gay, out, and comfortable with his sexuality. A little uptight, perhaps a little neurotic, lacks a filter, unafraid to say what’s on his mind or inquire about things he may not understand. He’s not sure what he believes, if anything.
Luke (male; late 20’s or early 30’s…considerably younger than Adam): a cater waiter and an aspiring actor. Gay, semi-closeted, and uncomfortable around his family. The “cute” one. Fun-loving, sincere, and very serious about his belief in God. Originally from Tallahassee but currently lives in NYC.
Holly (female; 30’s): a candle shop owner and a long-time friend of Adam’s. She employed Adam at the candle shop and eventually Luke as well. She may be the epicenter of the friend group. Very sweet. Uses the word ‘hon’ frequently.
Brandon (male; late 20’s or early 30’s): a successful property developer who recently moved from D.C. to New York. A very old friend of Luke’s who may not necessarily approve of Adam.
Arlene (female; 50’s): Luke’s mother. Was married to Butch, but struggled with the responsibilities of being a mother, self-medicated a lot, and eventually left. From Tallahassee.
A southern woman. Rough around the edges but sincere. A reformed eccentric. Unpredictable.
Butch (male; 50’s): Luke’s father. Was married to Arlene but after she took off, he remarried Lynn, a much younger and more put together woman. From Tallahassee. A born again fundamentalist. Traditional. His name says quite a lot.

They wanted to tell us about their appliances. Instead, they told us everything. Conceived by local author, playwright, and director David Parmelee, Toast! is composed entirely of online reviews of products purchased on a popular shopping site. Not a word has been added—only cuts made for brevity. The depth of human experience revealed in 175 short evaluations of toasters, coffee makers, juicers, mousetraps, condoms, and toilet plungers is almost incredible, resulting in a hysterical, pathosfilled look into the modern human condition.

The Pallbearers is a darkly comic take on social growth and decay from Eastern Pennsylvania writer and educator B. Garret Rogan. It is the fourth collaboration between Rogan and director David M. Reynolds.

Next Fall by Geoffrey Nauffts takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment, and unconditional love. While the play's central story focuses on the five year relationship between Adam and Luke, Next Fall goes beyond a typical love story. This timely and compelling new American play, directed by Brandi George, forces us all to examine what it means to "believe" and what it might cost us not to.
