I & YOU 

Performance Dates: October 17 - 20

​Anthony​, 17. He is neat, poised, mature for his age. He' s an "A" student, a tema player, a nice guy. He's not really great around girls. He takes his homework very seriously. When he likes something (jazz music) he is all in. Throughout the whole play, he looks at Caroline like he's trying to figure her out. Like he really needs to know who she is.

​Caroline​, 17. She is in comfy clothing, she does not expect company. She is sick, but mainly just looks a little weak and frumpy. She doesn't go out. She is cynical, over it, does not let a stray "feeling" near the surface.

​ANTHONY​ and​ CAROLINE​ must be of different races.
CTL strongly encourages actors of diverse backgrounds to audition for this production.

 

A Delicate Balance

Performance Dates:​ November 14 - 17

Tobias, Agnes, Harry, and Edna are all in their mid-to-late 50’s, are in the country club set (think 1960’s sophistication). The men are a couple of years older than the women.

Agnes is woman in her late 50s, well off, and married to Tobias. Always appears very classic and collected—at times detached or remote, but always in control. (Jessica Tandy, Glenn Close, Katherine Hepburn, and Elaine Stritch have played her.) Tobias is a couple of years older than Agnes. He is a well-to-do, retired businessman--very tolerant and non-judgmental. Never really had a hand in “household matters,” but tries to keep the waters calm. (Hume Cronin, John Lithgow, Paul Scofield) Claire is Agnes's younger sister (early 50’s). She claims that she is not an alcoholic but rather a willful drinker. Of all the characters in the play, whether it is due to the alcohol or not, Claire has the loosest tongue. She speaks her mind and is the least “proper). (Maggie Smith, Lee Remick) Julia is the 36-year-old daughter of Agnes and Tobias. Three times divorced, she has just recently left her fourth husband and has returned home. Her father calls her a whiner, and her mother has little time for her. Immature and irresponsible. (Mary Beth Hurt, Martha Plimpton) Harry is Edna's husband and Tobias's best friend. He prefers to talk around things rather than going at them straight on. He also avoids questions, like when Agnes tries to find out why he and his wife have come to their home. (Joseph Cotton) Edna is Harry's wife. Very like Agnes, but less. She is unsure of herself, but very assuming. (Elisabeth Wilson, Claire Higgins)

Barefoot in the Park

Performance Dates:​ July 9 - 12, 2020

​CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS:

 

Corie Bratter - Actress who can play a woman in her early 20s - any ethnicity. Lots of lines and on stage for whole play. Wide eyed, optimistic and full of hope for the future. She is childlike in her view of the world - seeing only the good in people and in a ratty apartment.

Telephone Repairman - male 40+ any ethnicity. Dry humor, not in great physical shape. 2 small but hilarious scenes.

Paul Bratter - Actor who van play a man in early to mid-20s - any ethnicity. Lots of lines and on stage for most of play. A practical and conscientious man married to a free spirit. Young lawyer - dresses conservatively. 

Mother - Female 45-60 any ethnicity. Supporting role but a good sized part. Tired, run down a bit. The spark is still in her though. She uses self pity for attention but not over the top. 

Victor Velasco - Male 50+ any ethnicity. Eccentric, colorful, big talker. But lovable. Supporting role and the catalyst for how events unfold.

There is also a delivery man with one line.
