Directed by Henry Brewer.  Audition Dates: Aug 28 from 7:30-10:30pm (outside doors will be locked at 9pm) at the Levittown Public Library, 1 Bluegrass La, Levittown (off Hempstead Tpke) in the Community Room, Room A/B.  Direct access is from the rear of the Library building.

Performances:  Fri/Sat Evenings, Nov 14, 15, 21, 22.  Sun Matinees on Nov 16 & 23.  Call (516) 884-6025 if accommodations outside scheduled auditions are requested. Character descriptions:  Show is being set in the post-WWII American South. Some characters will have to have Southern accents.
Hortense Daigle: A later-in-life mother for the times. Devastated from the loss of her only child, Claude, she has turned to the bottle to numb the pain.  A working woman (a hairdresser), around Christine Penmark, she is upset and confused and acutely aware of their differences in class and education.
Dwight Daigle: Hortense's husband.  Quiet, suffering just as much by Claude's death, he has to witness his wife's breaking down from the grief.  He remains strong for her and does not allow himself to grieve in public as his wife does.  Is apologetic for Hortense's all-encompassing grief and suffering. Is aware of her drinking and is both protective and embarrassed about it.
Miss Fern: Headmistress of the local exclusive private schoo.  A genteel spinster who, with her sister, runs the school with an iron fist in a velvet glove.  A deceptively steely character, who expects proper behavior from her charges and their parents and sees and comprehends far more than she cares to reveal.
Reginald Tasker: A crime writer with an encyclopedic knowledge of serial killers. Unmarried. Friend of Emory and Christine and an admirer of her father, journalist Richard Bravo.
Leroy Jessup: Breedlove's building's super. Monica's employee. Married with 3 children. A sullen, sly, embittered, cunning man who is not educated, but has an innate sense of what people really are.   Suspects Rhoda is not at all what she seems to be to everyone else and taunts her, creating great tension between them.
Monica Wages Breedlove: The Penmarks' on-site landlady. Garrulous, kindly, good-natured childless middle-aged divorcee who lives with her brother Emery.  She is a no-nonsense can-do type (Eve Arden type) who underwent analysis almost as a fad and is filled with lots of self-humor. Convinced of her own innate analytic ability to see beneath the surface.  She owns the house where the Penmark family are tenants and is an honorary "Aunt" to Rhoda, on whom she dotes.
Emory Wages: A confirmed bachelor who resides with his sister Monica in the same building as the Penmarks.  While Monica talks enough for the two of them, he can hold his own in a conversation and is not as interested in being the center of attention.  A quiet, thoughtful man who has little interest or need to become involved with Rhoda anywhere near to the extent that Monica does.
Rhoda Penmark: Christine's and Kenneth's daughter/ Richard Bravo's granddaughter. [Character is about 8 years old but a petite older child-actress (up to age 13) will be considered.]  Outwardly perfect, sweet and charming to her parents and "Aunt" Monica.  Is always polite and nicely dressed.  Is extremely bright and probably smarter than most of the adults around her, except for Miss Fern and Leroy.  She is calculating but with a child's inexperience.
Col. Kenneth Penmark: Christine's husband /Rhoda's father / Richard Bravo's son-in-law. Straight-arrow military man used to being called away from home on a moment's notice, he misses his beloved wife and "perfect" daughter.
Christine Bravo Penmark: Kenneth's wife/Richard Bravo's daughter/ Rhoda's mother. A gracious, loving wife and mother who suspects her own past is not what her father has let her believe and is torn and devastated when she confirms the truth about Rhoda and her own history.
Richard Bravo: Christine's widowed father/Rhoda's grandfather/Kenneth's father-in-law. Previously a well-known crime writer, then a war correspondent, now a newspaperman. Crusty, irascible but kind-hearted.  Deeply loving and devoted to Christine and to Rhoda.  
Messenger and Radio Announcer: two roles defined by the requirements of these occupations.

Playcrafters of Bellport
How would you like to be part of one of our productions? As theater is such a collaborative art, there are lots of critical tasks necessary to put on a successful show. You could be part of one of our productions.
Below is a list of the positions and a brief description of what they entail. If you are interested in becoming involved, even if you have no experience, give me a call. Let’s talk about it.
PRODUCER: If you are organized and are good at paying attention to details (and what mother or father isn't?), this is the title for you. The Producer coordinates all the other activities and keeps in touch with the director to make sure everything is proceeding smoothly.
COSTUMES: Do you have a sense of fashion and like to put clothes together? You would work with the Director to interpret each character’s role through what they are wearing. Being able to sew is a plus.
SET DESIGN & DECORATION: Do you like interior design and have a good sense of color? Are you an artist? By working with the Director, you would help decide what color the walls are, what kind of furniture is needed and generally create an environment.
SET CONSTRUCTION: Do you like to work with your hands and do "projects?" Do you like to work with wood or paint? We need you, whether you have tools or not.
LIGHTING: Do you want to learn something new? Lighting is the art of “painting” with light to create mood and texture for the play.
SOUND: You would be working with the Director to choose the music and sound effects needed to set the right mood for different parts of the play.
MAKE-UP: You would work with the actors to create the proper “look” they need for their characters.
PROPS: Are you the type of person who likes to go to yard sales or likes to search for odd pieces of “stuff?” You would help to find those perfect things that the actors use to make the play “real.”
STAGE MANAGER: Are you organized and like to work with people? The Stage Manager works closely with the Director and the actors to keep things flowing during rehearsals and the show.
If you are interested in any of these volunteer jobs, you don't have to have any experience. We will teach you by having you work with one of our experienced people. If you are not sure if this is for you, let’s talk. Call me. I can fill you in and answer questions. BOB KAPLAN, Member of the Board 631-929-3042 or mediamanbob1@gmail.com


Lantern Theatre is presenting for Visit to a Small Planet by Gore Vidal on Sat - Nov 1, 8, 15, Sun at 1:30pm – Nov 2, 9, 16, and 30. Add'l performance – Tues night during the run - TBD.  Full rehearsals with Tech on Oct 20-23, 27-30. If you are interested or have questions - contact Director: Kathy Beckerrupeetwo@optonline.net Home phone: 516 785-7340 Work: M-F 9:30am-12:30pm at 516 623-4200. Synopsis: Arriving on Earth from a distant planet in another dimension, Kreton is the "visitor" alluded to in the play's title. Like others who inhabit his home planet, Kreton never needs to eat, is immortal, and never has sex—immortality has negated the need for reproduction, and his culture has eliminated passion (sex for pleasure) as a societal evil. Through the powers of his mind, he is able to read the thoughts of others, create invisible force-fields, and cause objects to levitate. Kreton arrives hoping to witness a Civil War battle, but because of a navigational error, he lands in 1957. He invades the home of Roger Spelding and shows a great interest in the day-to-day lives of earthlings, calling them his "hobby." In order to create some excitement for himself, Kreton plays a prank that, he is sure, will cause a worldwide nuclear war. He sees the earth as a playground and hopes that a war will allow him to see the ways that “primitive'' humans behave.  As this play is filled with special effects (levitating vases and rifles, space ship landings, exploding earth globes, talking cats, to name a few) and 27 sound cues, we will need an extra special stage manager, lighting technician and quick fingered sound engineer and as always, help building the set. I look forward to engaging in a fun, open environment where the cast and crew can create their best work.
