About the event
Auditions for Neil Simon’s Brighton Beach Memoirs, the first show of Stage Crafters’ 52nd season and directed by Don Goodrum, will be held on January 8 and 9, 2024 at the Stage Crafters’ rehearsal hall at 40 Robinwood Dr. in Fort Walton Beach. Script perusal begins at 6pm and auditions begin at 6:30pm. You do not have to attend both nights of auditions to be considered. Brighton Beach Memoirs is the first play of Simon’s autobiographical “Eugene Trilogy” and is considered one of his finest works. The script calls for 3 men (one around the age of 20 and another around the age of 15) and four women (one around the age of 17 and another around the age of twelve). The 15-year old male role is considered to be the lead role of the show. As such, both adults and experienced younger actors between the ages of 12 and 23 are strongly encouraged to audition. For questions or other information, you may contact the director at email@example.com.
About "Brighton Beach Memoirs":
Here is part one of Neil Simon's autobiographical trilogy: a portrait of the writer as a young teen in 1937 living with his family in a crowded, lower middle-class Brooklyn walk-up. Eugene Jerome, standing in for the author, is the narrator and central character. Dreaming of baseball and girls, Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life in Brooklyn: a formidable mother, an overworked father, and his worldly older brother, Stanley. Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche, her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters, and you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style. This bittersweet memoir evocatively captures the life of a struggling Jewish household where, as his father states, "if you didn't have a problem, you wouldn't be living here."
