4th Wall Theatre, Inc.
Theatre on the Edge
4th Wall Theatre will hold OPEN AUDITIONS for the leading role of LUKE in Geoffrey Nauffts’ NEXT FALL. (An actor has had to leave the cast suddenly due to a film project.) The play was a 2010 Tony Award and Drama Desk Nominee. Next Fall will be directed by Gwen Ricks-Spencer. The show will be presented at The Westminster Arts Center in Bloomfield, NJ, where the company is in residence, as well as the Irvington Town Hall Theatre in Irvington, New York. Non-union, no pay.

Rehearsals will begin IMMEDIATELY, as early as Saturday, January 31, 2015. They will take place on weekday evenings and weekend days in Bloomfield or Montclair.

Performances are scheduled for March 7 and 8 in Irvington, NY, and March 13, 14, 15 in New Jersey.

Geoffrey Nauffts' NEXT FALL takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment and unconditional love. While the play's central story focuses on the five-year relationship between Adam, a confirmed atheist, and LUKE, a devout Christian, it goes beyond the typical love story. Following a serious accident, Adam must reassess his views and seek support from Luke’s family and friends. Next Fall is a timely and compelling new American play that forces us all to examine what it means to "believe" and what it might cost us not to.

Auditions are scheduled for Thursday, January 29, at Montclair Operetta Club's studio (494 Valley Road, Upper Montclair, NJ). Auditions will begin at 7:00pm. Sign-in will start at 6:30 and end at 8:00pm.

One man for the role of LUKE. Non-traditional casting will be strongly considered. Prepare a short monologue from contemporary theatre. Sides from the script will be available at the auditions and are available for download in the right-hand column of this page. Also bring a headshot and resume stapled together, and be prepared to provide all potential conflicts for evening and weekend rehearsals beginning immediately. 

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN (Ages are flexible)

LUKE (late20s/ early 30s) Born-again gay Christian, attractive, innocent, aspiring NY actor. Luke just wants Adam to believe in God (so he won’t go to hell).
