Auditions will consist of readings from the script.  Sides will be available before the audition and can be emailed to auditioners upon request. If you have any questions contact the Producer Donnie Baillargeon: dkbaillar@gmail.com

Performance Dates:  March 22, 23, 29, 30, 31 and April 5 and 6.

Character Breakdown:

Katharine Gerard – Just this side of 70.  Brittle and caustic woman, mink-clad and defiant, but inwardly sad — and terrified that her son will be forgotten by:

Cal Porter – In the neighborhood of 50.  Andre’s former life-partner, who has moved on to a new and happy life.  He is now married to:

Will Ogden  – 30s.  Cal’s younger and handsome husband.  Not, however, a boy-toy or appendage of Cal.  This is a strong man in his own right, and a very good father to:

Bud Ogden-Porter – 6 going on 40.  A precocious, but thankfully not precious little boy.  Full of questions and demanding of straight answers.   (Regarding this character’s age:  the actor may be older than 6, as long as it is believable that he is younger).

The Story:

After 20 years, Katharine Gerard, the mother of Cal Porter’s deceased lover, Andre, shows up uninvited and unexpected at Cal Porter’s Manhattan high-rise.  Cal is now married to a writer, Will, and they have a young son, Bud.

The visit is ostensibly to bring Cal a diary that Andre kept.  Soon, though, it becomes apparent that Katharine is in reality looking for something…. Closure?  An apology?  Revenge?  Terrence McNally explores these themes and more in his magnificent script.

Terra Nova

 

An extraordinary story and an inventive play written by Ted Tally

Directed by Michele Aguillon

JANUARY 25, 26 and FEBRUARY 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 2019

Featuring: Shayne Doherty as Scott, Bill Stambaugh as Amundsen, Gordon Ellis as Wilson, Jason Myatt as Evans, Adam Heroux as Bowers, Andy Boncoddo as Oates and Christina Petrillo as Kathleen

The play takes us to the ill-fated Antarctic expedition of Robert Falcon Scott, blending in flashbacks of Scott and the young wife he left behind in England, as well as glimpses of his Norwegian rival Ronald Amundsen, whose party beat Scott to the South Pole. It is an incredible story drawn from his journals and letters that capture the chilling intensity of the bravery and heroism of Scott and his men.

Tickets are $22 or $20 for Seniors/Students and can be purchased on-line through PayPal.  There is a transaction fee for on-line purchases.  For reservations call the QP Box Office.  Only checks and cash are accepted at performances.
