Pilgrim Productions is part of the heart of Auckland's wonderful theatre scene and ministry of theatre! We would like people to audition for two wonderful productions this year - our main production called "Harvey" and our 2013 touring play "Canon and Fugue for Four Voices".

Auditions will be held for Harvey on Sunday 19 May at 2pm at Theatre Pitt, 78 Pitt Street, Auckland City.

HARVEY

Elwood P. Dowd is an affable man who claims to have an unseen (and presumably imaginary) friend Harvey — whom Elwood describes as a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch tall pooka resembling an anthropomorphic rabbit. Elwood introduces Harvey to everyone he meets. His social-climbing sister, Veta, increasingly finds his eccentric behavior embarrassing. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare her and her daughter Myrtle Mae from future embarrassment.

The characters are:

Myrtle Mae Simmons : 20ish. A social climber. Easily embarrassed.
Veta Louise Simmons: 40-50ish. Myrtle's mother. A social climber, but ultimately a good person
Elwood P Dowd: 30-40ish. Kind, friendly. Perhaps a dreamer
Mrs. Chauvanet: 50+. Old Money
Nurse Kelly: 20s. Sweet, but easily baffled.
Duane Wilson: 20-40. Hospital orderly and strong-arm. Very loyal.
Dr. Sanderson; 30s. Professional, but a little too quick to jump to conclusions.
Dr. Chumley: 50+ Director of a sanitarium. As friendly as his name would suggest.
Mrs. Chumley: 40+. Understanding and patient.
Judge Gaffney: 50+. No nonsense upholder of The Law.
E.J. Loffgren: 30-50ish. Straight-shooting New York cabbie.

2013 TOURING PLAY: Canon & Fugue for Four Voices

We are planning to tour around Auckland churches in August a one act play called Canon & Fugue for Four Voices by Bruce Weston. This is an exciting play about the parallel worlds of Hiroshima and the Transfiguration. Four actors (male or female) are required. People wishing to audition for this play should attend auditions at the Theatre Pitt on the same day as the Harvey auditions.
