The Drama Book Shop Stage Casting is Sponsored by

(NEW) Charles Dickens’s Great Expectations - Non-Union
Wednesday, August 5, and Friday, August 7, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at the Brundage Park Playhouse theater, 70 Carrell Road, Randolph, NJ. Cold readings will be provided from the script. Please bring a headshot or snapshot and resume to the audition.

Brundage Park Playhouse is holding auditions for its October production of Charles Dickens's GREAT EXPECTATIONS, adapted by Robert Johanson. One of the greatest novels in the English language, GREAT EXPECTATIONS is a story of pride and ambition blinding a soul to the true values of life. There are many memorable characters: Young Pip, the blacksmith's apprentice, whose secret benefactor gives him his great expectations of becoming a London gentleman; the mad Miss Havisham who shut herself up in her gloomy, haunted mansion when she was jilted on her wedding day; her adopted daughter, Estella, whom she has trained to break men's hearts; the gentle blacksmith, Joe, and his shrewish wife; the escaped convict, Magwitch, and the scarred man who is stalking him; the bumbling Herbert Pocket; the pompous Uncle Pumblechook; the austere lawyer, Jaggers, with his whimsical clerk, Wemmick; the murderous Orlick; kindly Biddy; arrogant Drummle; and a vast array of wonderfully actable roles. Gripping drama, delightful humor and a true Dickensian flavor all the while. Performance dates are October 9, 10, 16, 17, 23 and 24 at 8:00 PM and October 18 and 25 at 2:00 PM. For further information please check the theater website at www.brundageparkplayhouse.org or call the theater at 973-989-7092.
