Auditions for UVI Theatre’s 2014-15 Season Debut of ‘Angels in the Snow’ Begin Sept. 15

Auditions will be held beginning Monday, Sept. 15, for UVI Theatre’s season opening production of the powerful, internationally acclaimed musical “Angels in the Snow: The Berlin Wall Musical Drama.” The play, written and directed by UVI Playwright-in-Residence Dr. Doug Larche, will open in mid-November. It was composed by Larche, with his late son, Jason, and Susan Elliott. It tells the passionate, inter-generational story of three couples separated by the Berlin Wall, and the bloody crises they face as they try to reach out to each other and survive. Performances are scheduled for Nov. 14-16, and Nov. 21-23, at the UVI Little Theatre in the CA Building on the St. Thomas Campus.

Auditions are open to all members of the UVI family, the greater Saint Thomas/St John community and local high school students. Auditions are slated at the UVI Little Theatre at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 15, and Wednesday, Sept. 17; at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 16, and Thursday, Sept. 18; at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 21; and by appointment by calling (340) 626-8815. Rehearsals will be flexible. Roles will include eight principals, ranging in age from teenagers to senior citizens. Supporting roles include a large and active chorus, and “People at the Wall.” Cast size in previous productions has ranged from 38 to over 100. Those interested should come prepared to sing any holiday carol and to read a one-minute monologue from any play or novel of their choice. Those auditioning will also be asked to perform very simple rhythmic movement and a few simple relational, reading and improvisational exercises.

Several back-stage positions are also open, including builders, painters, lighting and sound technicians, hair and make-up artist, publicist and general crew members. For details, call (340) 693-1341 or send e-mail to
