Region: Eastern

Seeking:ALBERT EINSTEIN – High Baritone, low G to high F (optional G#). Late 20s/early 30s. The genius in his youth, more at home in his head than in the world. Intensely focused, capable of flights of romantic imagination, idealistic and impassioned in the throes of scientific discovery. Trapped in a job beneath his capabilities, and struggling to make ends meet to support his wife and child, his dreams are a welcome escape. His marriage has grown strained, and this is partly why he is so entranced with the woman who haunts his dreams.  JOSETTE – Soprano with Belt, low A to high G, (optional Bb). Late 20s-late 30s. A mysterious, beguiling woman who appears to Einstein in his dreams over consecutive nights, guiding him in his exploration of the nature of time. She holds the key to his research, but because she is elusive and mercurial, it takes him awhile to fully understand who she is: Time personified.  MICHELE BESSO – Baritone, low G to high Eb. Late 20s/early 30s. Einstein’s closest friend and confidante. A talented physicist in his own right, Besso understands the importance of balancing intellectual pursuits with human relationships, and grounds Einstein in reality. He is quick to deflect with a joke, but his wry sense of humor is a mask for his deeper feelings.  PETER KLAUSEN – Baritone, C to high F. 40s/50s. Einstein’s boss in the patent office. Formal, officious, and emotionally detached, he has no patience for dreamers and frequently claims others’ accomplishments as his own. Doubles in the dream world as an impatient businessman, and Franklin D. Roosevelt.  MARTA / MILEVA – Mezzo-soprano, low G to F. 30s. Marta is the patent office typist. Warm and  maternal, she is infatuated with Einstein, quick to anticipate his needs, and disappointed when he fails to notice her. Doubles in the dream world as a mother, longing to keep her child safe from the progress of time, and as Mileva, Einstein’s wife.  ANNA – Soprano, B to F#. 20s/30s. Besso’s feisty wife. She has known Einstein since they were children. Smart and self-confident, she grasps the basics of relativity before her husband. Doubles in the dreams as a dutiful daughter, and a beleaguered bride.  HILDA – Mezzo/Belt – low B to D. 40s/50s. Klausen’s loyal, long-suffering secretary. She has squandered the best years of her life playing by the rules. She addresses this in one of the dreams, urging Einstein not to wish his life away. Doubles as a comically forgetful woman.  JOHANNES – Tenor, C# to high G. 20s/30s. The newest hire in the patent office. Puppyish and eager to please, he doubles in Einstein’s dreams as a beleaguered groom and a forgetful clerk. A quirky, character tenor.  JOSIE – Alto Belt – low Bb to C. Seeking an actor age 18+ to play age 12. A preternaturally self- possessed and intelligent girl, with a firm grasp of metaphysics. We ultimately discover her identity as Josette’s younger self.

A math nerd who is amazing with numbers, but not people. Serious, shrewd, sensitive. The kid who ate lunch in the library because he was so shy. He grew up in a tough house in a tough part of Utica and scholarshipped his way to where he is now, so grades, status and success are his currency. But becoming a father has changed him. He makes goofy faces now. He stares out of windows during meetings. His sentences end in question marks. All ethnicities. Adrienne: Late 30’s; Mitchell’s wife. Elegant, powerful, aloof and slightly rock n’ roll. Has eyes that are cat-like and assessing. The kind of woman you see climbing out of a dark sedan at JFK headed somewhere more glamorous than you.

"The Thanksgiving Play" Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in Larissa FastHorse’s wickedly funny satire, as a troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists scrambles to create a pageant that somehow manages to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month. A brilliant take on the modern American cultural dilemma. There will be no performance on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 28. Characters: Logan: Female, Caucasian looking, the high school drama teacher that's always pushing the envelope in potentially inappropriate ways. Earnest about theater and proving herself.
