MARINETTE — Theatre on the Bay at UW-Green Bay, Marinette Campus will host open auditions for “Waiting for the Parade” from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday for an all-female cast.
To learn more and reserve an audition slot, people can visit the Theatre on the Bay web page. Rehearsals for the performance will begin in February. Performances are March 28-31.
In John Murrell’s “Waiting for the Parade,” five Canadian women deal with their anxieties about World War II through courage, tension, humor and a little music. Marta, a German immigrant, combats prejudice and social isolation; Eve, a young school teacher, is unsettled by those who champion war (including her husband); Margaret, a God-fearing mother, is afraid she has lost her boys to war in more ways than one; Catherine, a young woman new to the workforce, struggles with the uncertainty of her husband’s fate; and Janet, the bossy organizer, is obsessed with volunteering for the war effort activities. Follow these women while they endlessly wait for their men to return and discover their inner strength in the process.
“Waiting for the Parade” is a story of uncommon courage by a leading Canadian playwright that has been positively reviewed by critics:
“An honest play that captures precisely the texture of ordinary hopes and despair.” — The London Guardian
“A small masterpiece.” — The Ottawa Citizen
Auditions will take place in the Theatre on the Bay Choir Room T-117 at the Herbert L. Williams Theatre on the UW-Green Bay, Marinette campus.
