AUDITIONS John Cariani’s new, unusual love story Last Gas will be held on Sunday, May 22 at 2:30 or Monday, May 23 at 6:30 in the VK Garage Theater.
Director Jeffrey Brown and Stage Manager Emery Dorman will be looking for four men and two women to play the complex characters in this bittersweet comedy.
Nat Paradis (say Parody): (plays late 30’s – early 40’s) a seemingly harmless man, perhaps a bit boyish. A charming loser who is good at seeming happy. Nat is a passionate Red Sox fan.
Troy Paradis-Pulcifer: (plays late teens) Nat’s son. A substantial, impressive young man, bigger and stronger than his dad.
Dwight Paradis: (plays 60’s) Nat’s father. A “larger-than-life” kind of guy, a bit rough around the edges, who loves a good time.
Guy Gagnon: (plays same age as Nat) Nat’s best friend. Loyal, stoic, overweight.
Cherry-Tracy Pulcifer: (plays 40’s) Troy’s mother, a smart, ambitious, perhaps officious, but substantial woman.
Lurene Legassey Soloway: (plays 40’s) a former neighbor, once a love interest of Nat’s, now a visitor.
In Last Gas, we meet Red Sox loving single dad Nat Paradis, manager of “Paradis’ Last Convenient Store,” the last place to buy gas (or anything else) before leaving rural northern Maine and entering into Canada. When an old flame returns to town, Nat must choose between new love and old.
Performances of Last Gas will be in The VK Garage Theater from Friday, July 15 to Sunday, July 31. Get full details HERE.
