AUDITION SIDES NOW AVAILBLE (SCROLL DOWN)
Uptown Players announces auditions for the regional premiere of Harbor, which runs October 9 through October 25, 2015 at the Kalita Humphreys Theater.
While it seems imminent that same-sex marriage will become legal nationally, another issue raises its prickly head. Gay adoption has been around for years, but parenting can still be a dicey subject for gay couples. Is it a genuine desire to raise and love a family? Is it a sense of entitlement or obligation? What happens if couples differ in opinion or change their minds? Harbor, written by Chad Beguelin, is an alternately stinging and touching comedy about the constantly shifting nature of the meaning of family. Ted and Kevin are a handsome, idyllic married couple and the proud owners of a tasteful, expensive house in tasteful, expensive Sag Harbor. Enter the uninvited Donna, Kevin’s homeless, manipulative, foul-mouthed sister and her whip-smart, van-schooled daughter who crash the party and trash the tea-cart. Donna’s seemingly innocent question whether Ted and Kevin want children creates a divisive situation that leads to unexpected consequences. With blistering humor and artful guile, Donna takes no prisoners in her quest to answer the question for Ted and Kevin… proving there are no safe harbors in Harbor.

The following roles are open to both equity and non-equity actors. There is one SPT-3 principle equity contracts available for this production. The production is under the direction of Coy Covington.
Ted: Mid-to-late 30’s, a successful architect, smooth, handsome, confident, charming. The breadwinner.
Kevin: Early-to-mid 30’s, Ted’s husband and would-be author. Funny, impressionable, slightly neurotic. His good nature masks the damage inside.
Donna: Mid-to-late 30’s. Kevin’s profane, manipulative and wily sister. Domineering, delusional, devious, damaged.
Lottie: Donna’s 15-yr old daughter. The real parent in the family. Fiercely smart, street wise beyond her years. Weary of coping with her mother’s bad decisions.
