Auditions for Season Two, 2019 at Melville Theatre.

Sense and Sensibility

Written by Kate Hamil

Directed by Vanessa Jensen

A fast, fun and frenetic adaption of the classic Jane Austen novel.

Seeking a cast of 10 people*, 5 male and 5 female and a mix of ages. *potentially one or two more

Elinor Dashwood – The elder Dashwood sister; sensible.
Marianne Dashwood – The middle Dashwood sister; sensitive

All other roles will be played by the ensemble (and not necessarily the same person every time). Cross-dressing may or may not be included! The Gossips; a chorus of high society creatures keep the story moving and add to the originality of this adaptation. The Gossips double as other characters.

Cast will move the set and create some of the scenery and sound effects in full view of the audience.
