Whitefish Theatre Co. holding auditions for “A Behanding In Spokane”

Print Article

The Whitefish Theatre Co. is holding auditions for a Black Curtain theatre production of “A Behanding In Spokane” on Tuesday, March 6 at 6 p.m. the O’Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish.

The north door at the back of the O’Shaughnessy Center will open at 5:45 p.m. for those wanting to fill out an audition application early and review the audition selections.

In this darkly comical work, the mysterious gun-toting Carmichael has been searching for his missing left hand for decades. Enter two bickering lovebirds with a hand to sell and a hotel clerk with an aversion to gunfire, and soon life and death are up for grabs. Called “perfect, demented, ecstatic, sadistic and imaginative” by the New York Times, “A Behanding in Spokane” reveals the gritty underbelly of American daily existence, exposing the obsessions, prejudices, madness, horrors, and above all the absurdities that crawl beneath it. This is black comedy at its funniest, thanks to the “wildly entertaining” and “truly explosive” script by award-winning playwright Martin McDonagh (“Pillowman,” “In Bruges”).

The cast will be composed of three men (ages 18 to early 60s), including one African-American role, and one woman (ages 18 to early 40s). No experience or preparation is necessary to audition. Pages from the script will be provided at the audition. Copies of the entire script can be previewed at all local public libraries.

Renee Frances Conn is the director for this production. As a Black Curtain show, actors will remain on book during performances and there will be minimal costumes and set. There will be maximum of nine rehearsals and one tech night on March 23. There are two performances over one weekend on March 24 and 25.

For more information, call the Whitefish Theatre Company at 862-5371.
