General Info About OLT Auditions

Auditions are typically held on a Monday and a Tuesday evening, starting at 7:00 p.m. You do not have to attend both nights of auditions, but you are welcome to read both nights of auditions if you’d like. If callbacks are necessary, the director will schedule the date and time. 

Audition appointments are not necessary unless you are unable to attend auditions on the regularly scheduled days and times. In that case, the Director may agree to schedule a separate audition appointment for you. This choice is entirely up to the Director.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. You do not need to have prepared monologues. Copies of the scripts for the current season’s plays are available at the Downtown, Lacey, and Tumwater branches of the Timberland Library. You may ask for a copy of the script at the information desk. Scripts are only available for use at the library and may not be checked out. 

Headshots and resumes are welcome at auditions, but are not necessary.

Rehearsals are typically Monday through Thursday. Additional rehearsals and/or the rehearsal schedule are at the Director’s discretion. Performances are typically Thursday through Sunday; Sunday is the only matinee.

Olympia Little Theatre is a community theater and you need not have any previous experience, just passion and commitment!

Please contact the Director, Toni C. Holm tch@Well.com 360-951-2380 if you are interested or have questions.

Synopsis: The play takes place in a Philadelphia neighborhood bar, opening with Daphne and her patrons’ conversations interrupted by the appearance of 11 year old Ruby, covered in glass, fleeing the police arrest of her family who were living in an apartment upstairs. Adopted by Daphne and watched over by Daphne’s sister, Inez, Inez’s husband Acosta, and bar regulars Rey, Pablo and Jen we see her grow and glimpse the changes in all of their lives and relationships in 5 scenes over appx 1 15 period, ending when Ruby takes over the operation of the bar. Each character is strong and well-delineated and the play is beautifully written. Daphne, Inez, Acosta and Pablo have Puerto Rican roots and Jenn is Asian American.

Director’s Note: The play is about life and family, both the one(s) you inherit and the one(s) you choose. The language and characters are so well written. I’m looking for actors with the ability and motivation to make them fully live on stage. My crew and I will provide the framework and support and the direction as needed to make the play cohesive to the audience.
