The Merlin Players is excited to announce auditions for their upcoming production of Neil Simon’s "Brighton Beach Memoirs" and seeks actors able to play the following ages: girls aged 12-20, boys aged 14-20, women aged 30-50, and a man aged 30-50. Actors of all ethnicities, backgrounds, and experience levels are encouraged to audition.
The story of "Brighton Beach Memoirs" follows almost-15-year-old Eugene Jerome as he grows up in 1937. Dreaming of baseball and girls, Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life in Brooklyn: formidable mother, overworked father, and his worldly older brother Stanley. Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche and her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters and you have a recipe for heartfelt hilarity. Neil Simon plays require a balance of comedy and drama, with actors that are thoroughly knowledgeable of the text in order to execute. Memorization skills and willingness to play are needed.
