Tanghalang Pilipino holds auditions for Stanley Kowalski role

Tanghalang Pilipino is looking for an actor to play the role of Stanley Kowalski, opposite Irma Adlawan-Marasigan’s Blanche Dubois, for the staging of “Flores Para Los Muertos,” Orlando Nadres’ translation of Tennessee William’s “A Streetcar Named Desire.”

Auditions will be held on April 26, 2009 (Sunday) at the Bulwagang Amado Hernandez, Tanghalang Pambansa, CCP Complex, Roxas Blvd., Pasay City, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Stanley Kowalski was made famous by Marlon Brando in the film version of “Streetcar.” Locally, the part was played by Philip Salvador under the direction of the late Lino Brocka.

The role calls for a strong actor in his early 20s to mid-30s, with previous theater or acting experience and is ready to read scenes from the script. Interested actors should submit a resume with two photos (a 2”x2” head shot and a 3”x5” full body shot).

Applicants must be available for the production schedule, with rehearsals running for six weeks prior to the opening on October 2, 2009, and weekend performances at the Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (CCP Little Theater) for the whole of October 2009.

“Flores Para Los Muertos,” is the third play in TP’s 23rd Theater Season, which focuses on “Women of Substance.” Perhaps American playwright Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece, “Streetcar’s” recurring theme is the constant and often dangerous conflict between reality and fantasy, actual and ideal. Blanche Dubois, the main character says, “I don’t want realism; I want magic.” Blanche’s deception of others and herself is not from malicious intent, but rather from a heart and spirit broken by adversity and forced to retreat to a kinder, purer time that no longer exists.

For inquiries, please call Tanghalang Pilipino at 8323661 or 8321125 locals 1620/1621, Tuesdays to Fridays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., or contact Jo-Anne at 0928-5047779.
