Auditions for BLITHE SPIRIT will be held in the theatre at 7 pm on July 21 & 22
Roles: 2 male, 5 female.
Note: The play is set in England, so all characters should have appropriate accents.
Charles Condomine (male, playable ages 35-49)
40ish gentleman author, precise and more than a bit fussy, but not by any means obnoxious. Can be quite charming and witty when he puts his mind to it. Cares for both of his wives & tries not to hurt either of them, which ends up with him acting rather indecisive.
Ruth Condomine (female, playable ages 30-40)
Charles’ second wife, smart and very sure of herself with an arch sense of humor. More decisive than Charles & apt to take matters into her own hands. Not at all happy when Elvira shows up.
Madame Arcati (female, playable ages 45-65)
The medium who is the catalyst for Elvira’s appearance, she is a hearty English countrywoman, with nothing particularly mystical about her except an eccentric taste in clothes. Treats the whole business with great enthusiasm & matter-of-factness. A rare medium well done.
Elvira Condomine (female, playable ages 25-35)
Charles’ deceased first wife, energetic an emotional, she is thrilled at being called back. More than a bit jealous of Ruth, does her best to get him to herself. Not exactly flighty but very changeable. High-spirited. Pale skin a big plus for the actress playing this part.
Dr. Bradman (male, playable ages 40-69)
The Condomines’ dinner guest for the séance, down-to-earth and good-humored. Takes a rather clinical interest in the world.
Mrs. Bradma (female, playable ages 40-69)Dr. Bradman’s wife, cheerful and a bit fluttery. Finds the séance fascinating

General info about OLT auditions
Our audition procedures are generally as follows, but may vary at the discretion of the Director:
Auditions are typically held on a Monday and a Tuesday evening, starting at 7:00 p.m. You do not have to attend both nights of auditions, but you are welcome to read both nights of auditions if you'd like. If callbacks are necessary, the director will schedule the date and time.
Audition appointments are not necessary unless you are unable to attend auditions on the regularly scheduled days and times. In that case, the Director may agree to schedule a separate audition appointment for you. This choice is entirely up to the Director.
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. You do not need to have prepared monologues. Copies of the scripts for the current season's plays are available at the Downtown, Lacey, and Tumwater branches of the Timberland Library. You may ask for a copy of the script at the information desk. Scripts are only available for use at the library and may not be checked out.
Headshots and resumes are welcome at auditions, but are not necessary.
Rehearsals are typically Monday through Thursday. Additional rehearsals and/or the rehearsal schedule are at the Director's discretion. Performances are typically Thursday through Sunday; Sunday is the only matinee. Special performances are typically on the Tuesday evening after the second weekend of performances.
Olympia Little Theatre is a community theater and you need not have any previous experience, just passion and commitment!
