The Man Who Came to Dinner
Call for Auditions
Friday, June 21, 2019 at 7 pm

DESCRIPTION

Open auditions will be held on June 21st & 24th to cast all roles in a radio-play adaptation of the classic 1942 film "The Man Who Came to Dinner." It will be performed on stage at the Jeanne Rimsky Theater in Port Washington before a live audience on Oct. 6th, 2019, and recorded for online streaming and possible later broadcast.

This "old-time radio" production will include period-style station breaks and songs between acts,
performed by members of the cast, so singing as well as non-singing actors will be cast.
Versatile actors are needed who can deliver distinctive voices for multiple characters. Actors
will be cast based on how they sound; there is no need to "look the part."

Sides will be provided. An accompanist will be available for singing auditions; please bring sheet
music with you. Descriptions of the characters are available on request; email
landmarkradiotheater@gmail.com .

When and Where
Friday evening, June 21, 7 p.m. - 10 p.m.
Monday evening, June 24, 8 p.m. - 10 p.m.
at The Jeanne Rimsky Theater at Landmark on Main Street, 232 Main Street, Port Washington, N.Y.

If you cannot appear in person on either date, you may submit a digital recording (.mp3 file) of
your voice for consideration. Write to landmarkradiotheater@gmail.com for additional details,
and be sure to submit your materials by June 23.

About the Story
"The Man Who Came to Dinner" is a satirical comedy about an acid-tongued cultural critic on a
lecture tour who condescends to dine with a prominent local family in small-town Ohio, only to
slip on the front steps and break his hip. Forced to stay indefinitely to recuperate, he takes over
the household and meddles in everyone's lives, while scheming to keep his own from being
upended when his trusted secretary falls for a local newspaper reporter.

About the Production
This is a volunteer community theater production; performers are unpaid. The format will be
similar to a staged reading of a play, with actors working to microphones with script in hand. The
script is based on the Lux Radio Theater coast-to-coast radio broadcast of March 27, 1950. The
show will rehearse in September and early October, with a performance on Sunday, Oct. 6.


Landmark Radio Theater is a co-production of Expressive Elocution and Landmark on Main Street.
