Theatre West is issuing an audition call for their production of Jake’s Women, a comedy by Neil Simon. The director is Bonnie Ross. Bonnie has both acted and directed at Theatre West. She made a memorable appearance in Rose’s Dilemma in 2013.
Auditions will be held at the theatre located at 3536 HWY 101 in Lincoln City on Sunday and Monday, August 7 and 8 at 7:00 P.M.
The play will run from October 20 through November 12, 2016. It will be presented on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 P.M. with call at 6:30 P.M. There will be a Sunday matinee at 2:00 P.M. on a date to be determined after the play is cast.
The cast consists of one male (age indeterminate) and seven females, ages 12-ish to 60s and beyond. The role of Jake is huge and wonderful, and he never leaves the stage. The role was originally played on Broadway by Alan Alda.
This first play of the Theatre West season celebrating Neil Simon is the story of Jake, a novelist who is more successful with fiction than with life. He faces a crisis through conversations – some imaginary and some real -- with the women in his life. They include a revered first wife who was killed years earlier in an accident, his daughter who is recalled as a child but is now a young woman, his boisterous and bossy sister, an opinionated analyst, his current wife who is planning to leave Jake, and Jake’s current lady friend.
