Broadway Auditions ” The Championship Season” starring Keifer Sutherland

11/03/2010

“The Championship Season” will be revived on Broadway. Keifer Sutherland has been cast for one of the lead roles.

The production is about a sports team and coach who come together to relive winning moments. The five-man ensemble is comprised of the Coach and four members of a small-town Pennsylvania basketball team that won the state championship decades ago. The play takes place on the night of their annual reunion.

The former champs will include comedian Gaffigan (“Flight of the Concords”) as George Sikowski, Golden Globe nominee Noth (“Sex and the City,” Farragut North) as Phil Romano, Patric (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, “The Lost Boys”) as Tom Daley and Golden Globe Award winner Sutherland in his Broadway debut as James Daley.

An open call is scheduled to cast the understudies

That Championship Season – Understudies

Broadway Production Contract understudies only, all other roles have already been cast

Coach Understudy:

Onstage role is cast. Seeking Understudy only. 60s. Caucasian. Huge man of Old Testament temperament. Man of immense and powerful contradictions. The most influential person in these men’s lives.

George Sitkowski Understudy:

Onstage role is cast. Seeking Understudy only. Polish American, 40s. Likable, appealing yet inept. The town’s mayor. Paunchy. A bit foolish, he has no real ideas of his own, and does mostly what everyone else tells him to. Blustery and slightly desperate.

James Daley Understudy:

Onstage role is cast. Seeking Understudy only. Irish American, 40s. Principal of the junior high school and George’s campaign manager. Loyal and responsible, he deeply resents that he is not as successful, powerful or respected as he thinks he should be. Flailing in his own mediocrity.

Tom Daley Understudy:

Onstage role is cast. Seeking Understudy only. Irish American, 40s. James’s younger brother, a witty but despairing alcoholic. Bitter, unsuccessful and cynical, he is the only one who is not sentimental about their past; comments on the other men’s foolishness throughout the night. Attractive. Intense and restless, he can’t help but be sardonic.

Phil Romano Understudy:

Onstage role is cast. Seeking Understudy only. Italian American, 40s. Arrogant and opinionated. Money, influence, fast cars and women are the center of his life. The primary investor in George’s mayoral elections, he is wavering in his financial support for this particular campaign
