Sturgis Area Arts Council - Event Details

Auditions for "Everybody Loves Opal"
Sunday, January 7
Sturgis Williams Middle School band room

Director June Dill has set auditions for Sunday, January 7th, from 6:30-8:30pm in the Williams Middle School band room. June, a veteran director who has recently retired from the Sturgis Brown High School, is now ready to lend her directing skills to the Sturgis Area Arts Council's productions. She is very familiar with the play having previously directed it. She agrees with the New York Post's description of the play as "shamelessly entertaining".

The cast, which includes 2 women and 4 men, is as follows:

Principal Roles:

Opal - A middle-aged recluse living in a tumbledown mansion at the edge of the municipal dump. She is an optimist full of unfailing kindness and an abiding faith in the goodness of human nature.

Gloria Gulock - On the lam from the authorities, she has designer-like wardrobe, and Hollywood dreams makes her the perfect naive front woman. She has a brashness that compensates for her insecurity. She seems hardened.

Bradford Winter "Professor" - On the lam from the authorities, the real brains behind the operation, with his high-end vocabulary, college professor ensemble, and sarcastic sense of humor.

Solomon Bozo - Also on the lam from the authorities, he is the big bossman in his fancy fur and authoritative air who talks a big, mob-boss-like game, but there?s something hiding beneath the boisterousness. He is shabby, fat, bald and bug-eyed. He is in an extreme state of agitation.

Minor roles:

Doctor - Middle-aged. Rather cantankerous.

Officer Joe Jankie - A handsome young policeman.

No advance preparation is needed. Performances will be February 23rd - 26th.
