AUDITIONS FOR David Auburn’s PROOF
The Delta Xi Cast of Alpha Psi Omega, the National Theater Honor Fraternity
at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, will hold auditions for David Auburn’s
Proof on Monday and Tuesday, June 16 and 17, 2008 at 7:30 p.m. in the RPI
Playhouse, 15th Street (South of Sage Avenue), Troy, NY. Registration for
auditions begins at 7:00 p.m. each night. No monologues. We will read directly
from the script. Auditions are open to all.
Synopsis: On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine, a troubled
young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father
Robert, once a renowned mathematician. Now, following his death, she must deal
with the aftermath, including the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire, as
well as the attentions of Hal, a former student of Robert's who hopes to find
valuable work in the 103 notebooks that he left behind. Over the long weekend
that follows, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook
draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: how much of her
father's genius -- or madness -- will she inherit?
Catherine (25) - An emotionally volatile woman who for five years has acted
as sole caregiver to an ailing father. Though intellectually dynamic, she has
allowed herself to withdraw, her tart demeanor masking an apprehension
regarding interpersonal relationships and the possibilities of life.
Robert (50s) - A widowed college professor whose mathematical skills brought
him world prominence. He is stern and precise by nature but also warm and
Hal (28) - A former graduate student of Robert's, he is interested in both
investigating the work his professor left behind and pursuing his affections
Claire (29) - Stylish and attractive, she is a bright and successful
businesswoman who nevertheless has long held an adversarial relationship with her
sister Catherine. The geographic absence from her father's immediate world
brings some guilt and a renewed desire to lend help.
Proof will be directed by John Birchler, who previously directed ‘ART’ for
the Delta Xi Cast of Alpha Psi Omega. Production dates are September 12, 13
and 18-20, 2008. For more information, contact the director at 347-2372.
