North River Theater is excited to announce we will be holding auditions for Norm Foster's Opening Night, directed by Will Candler on September 16th and 17th from 7-9pm.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.

Performance dates: November 16th, 17th, 23rd & 24th at 8pm, and November 18th & 25th at 2pm.

During the opening night of a new play, the action is all in the audience and backstage. A funny, gentle look at human relationships.

The madcap antics start as Jack and Ruth Tisdale celebrate their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary with an evening at the theatre. It's a dream come true for Ruth and an imposition for Jack who would rather be at home watching the World Series. However, after the events both on and off the stage that fateful night, their lives and those of all of those involved are irreparably altered.

Jack Tisdale, a varnish salesman.
Ruth Tisdale, an accountant and Jack's wife.
Richard Hyde-Finch, a director.
Cilla Fraser, Richard's girlfriend.
Michael Craig, and actor.
Clayton Fry, an actor.
Libby Husniak, an igenue.
Tom Delaney, a waiter and aspiring actor.
