Making God Laugh

Auditions for Making God Laugh will be September 18 & 20, 2018 at 6:00 PM. Call backs will be held on September 21, 2018 at 6:00 PM. This evening will also be available for those who cannot attend either previous auditions. Please send a Facebook message to the theater if none of these days work for you and you would like to schedule a private audition. The cast calls for two women and three men who age as the play progresses. Ruthie, the bossy but well-meaning mother and Bill, the easy-going father start out in their 40’s and age into their 70’s. Their children are Richard, (late 20’s to 50’s) the stylish entrepreneur; Maddie (mid-20’s to 50’s) the strong-willed artist; and Thomas, (early 20’s-50’s) the even-tempered good son. This play is written by Sean Grennan. It will be directed by Angela Sanford. It is presented with permissions by Playscripts, Inc. The performances will be December 7-9, 2018 and December 14-16, 2018. All shows are 7:30 PM except for December 9 & 16 which are 2:00 PM matinees.

Making God Laugh follows one typical American family over the course of 30 years' worth of holidays. Starting in 1980, Ruthie and Bill's grown children—a priest, an aspiring actress and a former football star—all return home where we learn of their plans and dreams as they embark on their adult lives. The empty-nester parents contend with their own changes too as old family rituals are trotted out and ancient tensions flare up. As time passes, the family discovers that despite what we may have in mind, we often arrive at unexpected destinations.

Come Play with Us!
