Catherine: THIS ROLE IS CAST.
Claire (30-37): Catherine’s older sister. Hard working, manipulative, focused. A “put together”, no-nonsense, “take charge” kind of gal–she has been financially supporting her sister and father while he was sick and has taken on the responsibilities of her father’s estate and is spearheading his funeral arrangements. She left her father and sister behind in Chicago to make a new life in New York City complicating her relationship with Catherine.
Robert (approx. 60 years old): The recently deceased father of Catherine and Claire. He was a University of Chicago professor and mathematician who did groundbreaking work throughout a distinguished career but whose latter years were plagued by mental illness. Charming, stubborn and disillusioned. He has a very strong connection with and admiration for Catherine, her aspirations and the common traits that they share and is seen throughout the play in flashback and as part of her imagination.
Harold/Hal (25-32): One of Robert’s last Ph.D. students during the one year his mentor’s illness went into remission enabling Robert to teach. Quirky, witty, conflicted and bright. Hal believes that somewhere in the gibberish that Robert wrote in his latter years, there might be additional evidence of his mathematical genius and spends time at the family home going through his notebooks when he falls for Catherine. Their relationship becomes complicated over questions regarding the authorship of a mathematical proof that he believes to be brilliant.
The Gallery Players, Brooklyn’s premier, award-winning Off-Off Broadway theater, is seeking Designers and Staff for their 48th Season which includes: next to normal (Sept 13-Oct 5), Proof (Oct 25-Nov 9), Jerry’s Girls (Dec 6-Dec 21), Run For Your Wife Jan17-Feb 1), The Baker’s Wife (Mar 7-Mar 29), Evita (Apr 25-May 17) and the 18th Annual Black Box New Play Festival (May 28-June 21). We are seeking talented and resourceful Designers for Set, Costumes, Lighting, Props and Sound. We are also accepting resumes from capable Producers, Assoc. Producers, Stage Managers and Asst. Stage Managers for all shows. Interested Designers must be capable of executing their design with help from a volunteer staff and Gallery’s resources. There is a small stipend for all positions. Send materials ASAP to email@example.com.
We are seeking enthusiastic, hard-working, talented, self-starting people who are willing and able to work in an Off-Off Broadway setting. The Gallery Players operates under the Equity NYC Showcase code.
Producers will be expected to supervise a production from the choosing of a director through opening night, making sure that each show meets our high standards and comes in within budget.
Designers: Though Gallery does have Volunteers to help with everything from building and hanging to ushering and concessions, it is ultimately the designer’s job to make sure the design is executed.
Stage Managers and Assistant Stage Managers can be either Equity or Non-Equity.
Please indicate which shows particularly interest you.
Taught by professional theater artists, The Peanut Gallery is devoted to Musical Theater. Children will learn to sing and dance, and will create and perform their own original show with songs from Broadway musicals!
