Auditions for ‘I Hate Hamlet’ scheduled for Feb. 24, 25


Guest director Victor Pisauro will hold open auditions for Aloha Performing Arts Company’s production of “I Hate Hamlet,” a comedy by Paul Rudnick. Six volunteer actors will be cast: three women and three men. Auditions, which consist primarily of readings from the script, will be conducted at 6 p.m. Feb. 24 and 25 at the Aloha Theatre in Kainaliu. A call-back audition may be held Feb. 26, if necessary.

The cast consists of: Andrew Rally, a young and popular soap opera actor; Felicia Dantine, Andrew’s real estate broker, who claims she can speak to the dead; Dierdre McDavey, Andrew’s emotional girlfriend; Gary Peter Lefkowitz, a pompous television producer who gave Andrew his first big break; John Barrymore, the ghost of the legendary actor; and Lillian Troy, Andrew’s agent, in her early 70s, who remembers an affair she had with Barrymore in the apartment in which Andrew currently resides.

APAC’s production will be performed April 12 to 27 at the Aloha Theatre. Pisauro has worked with APAC over the years, most recently appearing as Ricky Roma in David Mamet’s “Glengarry Glen Ross.” In 1997, he directed the comedy “Knock Knock” by Jules Pfeiffer for APAC.

No experience is required, and newcomers are encouraged to audition. Scripts are available for on-site perusal by arrangement with Suzanne Murdock. Many crew positions for the production are also available.
