Production Description

Casting "A Winter's Evening," a comedy about Tony Ferrari, an editor, and his sister Stacey who both find true love. Tony ends up with his sister's best friend Nicole, and Stacey with Randy, a guy from her information technology job. Producer states: "An ensemble is being formed for a fall production. The play takes place one Friday night in a metropolitan area in an apartment and the outside club. It involves the themes: love conquers all, mistaken identity, and the folly of ambition. Most roles will be double cast."

Rehearsal and Production Dates & Locations

Rehearsals begin late July (10-11 consecutive Saturdays); runs this fall (3-6 shows) in NYC. Producer states: "Performs at The Players Theatre in their 199 seat theater (late Oct / early Nov) with two performances per night, one at 7PM and the other at 9PM."

Compensation & Union Contract Details

No pay. $125/month tuition is required (the program lasts three months). Producer states: "The Lombardi Arts Center is a school, and this is a program of study that ends with the performances. The rehearsals are classes, leading up to the show. If cast at callbacks the first tuition payment is due; it will only be collected with the entire cast present. This is not an employment opportunity, but one that is purely educational. Photos and 1080p HD video will be provided from a professional DSLR camera."

About The Lombardi Arts Center

The Lombardi Arts Center is a theater school with the mission to educate about drama in a safe environment, strive for creative originality, promote toleration, and seek to increase awareness.
Our philosophy is that fundamentally acting is storytelling through the portrayal of a character. There are many techniques in acting such as: Classical acting, Stanislavski's system, the Michael Chekhov technique, Method acting, the Meisner technique, and Practical Aesthetics. An actor or actress should use whatever technique they like best, and find helps them portray their character. Acting is an art, and art is fundamentally imitation, referenced from Aristotle's Ancient Greek concept of "mīmēsis" in his book entitled The Poetics. However, an actor or actress should never imitate the way other people have portrayed characters in drama, rather they should originate their own unique interpretation.
