Eventide Theatre Company and director, Steve Ross, invite you to attend open auditions for their production of “Educating Rita”, running May 4 – 26.
Auditions will be held Sunday March 12, 5 – 7 pm and Monday March 13, 6 – 8 pm at the Gertrude Lawrence stage at Eventide Theatre Company and will primarily consist of reading sides from the script.
“Educating Rita” is two-person comedy, 1 male/1 female, set in a lecturer’s first floor office in a university in England, that became a hit film starring Michael Caine and Julie Walters. The character descriptions are as follows;
Frank, 50’s – early 60’s, is a university lecturer and English tutor whose disillusioned outlook on life drives him to drink. He has a dry wit and is very hesitant to take on Rita as a student.
Rita, 20’s – early 30’s, a forthright, plain-spoken hairdresser who is eager to expand her intellectual horizons. She cajoles Frank and slowly wins him over with her innate insight and her refusal to take no for an answer.
Their relationship as teacher and student blossoms giving Frank a new sense of self and Rita the knowledge she so craves.
