Event Description

CATS Holds Auditions for The Joy Luck Club

 

By Jeannie Wood, Executive Director

 

Community Asian Theatre of the Sierra (CATS) will hold auditions for Amy Tan’s beloved bestseller, The Joy Luck Club, on September 21 and 23 at the Nevada Theatre. Call-backs are on September 28. The play is written by Susan Kim and will be directed by Jeffrey Mason. Show dates are April 9 to May 2, 2020, at the Nevada Theatre, and rehearsals begin in mid-February, 2020. CATS first presented this play almost twenty years ago and are pleased to reprise it as our 2020 play.

 

The Joy Luck Club tells a series of interconnected stories about Chinese mothers, their American daughters, and the people who complicate their lives. The play takes place in China and in America from the early 20th century to 1987. It is an uplifting story of four remarkable friends whose extraordinary lives are filled with joy and heartbreak. Their lifelong friendship reveals a mosaic of startling events and conditions that shape their lives — and how these experiences affect the hopes and dreams they hold for each of their children.

CATS is seeking at least twelve women and five men to play more than thirty-six roles; many actors will double in two to five roles each. Please visit www.catsweb.org for a descriptive cast list.

 

For the first round of auditions, we would like each actor to prepare a monologue chosen from those posted at www.catsweb.org. If time permits, we will arrange some cold readings of dialogue scenes. Call-backs will involve scenes and more monologues.
