Auditions for the Phoenix Theatre's production of “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 10 and Wednesday, Jan. 11 from 6-8 p.m. at the Sheldon Theatre.

Prepare a one minute monologue for the audition.  The cast is two men and four women, directed by Julie Martin. Performance dates of the show are March 23-26.

Winner of the 2013 Tony Award, “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike”, written by Christopher Durang, is a comedy play. Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia share a house in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives.  Suddenly, their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house.  Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra, who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha.
