Daphne’s Dive Auditions were held Sunday March 10 12:30 – 3:30 pm and Monday March 11 6:30-8:30pm at the Olympia Little Theater ANNEX (behind the Theatre building) at 1925 Miller Ave SE, Olympia, WA. There are still roles available; please see audition listing below. 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.
