Auditions in San Diego for “84 Charing Cross Road”

By | April 14, 2015

84 Charing Cross Road

Location: San Diego, CA

Type: Theater

84 Charing Cross Road by James Roose Evans, Directed by Steve Murdock.

This wonderful show is a dramatization of business letters between a young struggling writer in New York and an antiquarian book store in London. In a sense, these are also love letters. They are about the love of good literature. The play takes place over a twenty year period, beginning in 1949 when Helene Hanff first writes Marks & Co. and ends in 1969 with the death of Frank Doel, the delightfully dusty supplier of so many old volumes to Helen who has shown her gratitude through the years by sending “care packages” to the staff of Marks & Co.

Auditions will be cold readings from the script. Prepared audition pieces are welcome, but not required. Please bring a current headshot and theatrical resume with you to the auditions.
