Auditions for “The Dining Room” to Be Held at The Acting Company

Feb 06, 2024 03:47PM ● By The Acting Company News Release

YUBA CITY, CA (MPG) - The Acting Company continues its 40th Anniversary Year of bringing live theater to the Yuba-Sutter community with auditions for THE DINING ROOM directed by David Wheeler. Auditions will be held at The Acting Company, 815 B Street, Yuba City at 7:00pm on Monday, and Tuesday, February 19 and 20. Auditions will be cold readings. Six actors are needed for the roles—two men, two women, one teenaged boy  and one teenaged girl—in this banquet of theatrical riches. Rehearsals will be Monday through Thursday,  February 26 through March 28, 7:00-9:00 pm at The Acting Company.

The Dining Room is a brilliantly conceived and richly humorous theatrical tour de force in which six per formers portray a wide array of diverse characters as they delineate the dying lifestyle of wealthy WASPdom,  and the now neglected room which was once a vital center of family life.

The play, written by American playwright A. R. Gurney, is set in the dining room of a typical well-to-do  household, the place where the family assembled daily for breakfast and dinner and for any and all special  occasions. The action is comprised of a mosaic of interrelated scenes—some funny, some touching, some  rueful—which, taken together, create an in-depth portrait of a vanishing species: the upper-middle-class  WASP. The actors change roles, personalities and ages with virtuoso skill as they portray a wide variety of  characters, from little boys to stern grandfathers, and from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids. Each  vignette introduces a new set of people and events. The scenes coalesce, ultimately, into a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor and abundant humanity. 

Established in 1984, The Acting Company is a non-profit organization who engages, inspires, entertains and  challenges audiences with theatrical productions that range from the classics to new works. Our productions train and support our existing actors and provide a venue for the next generation of theater artists. We provide youth acting programs that promote life-long learning to a diverse community. 

The Dining Room will be performed Friday, Saturday and Sunday beginning March 29 through April 21 at The Acting Company 815 B Street, Yuba City.
