The Meramec Theatre Announces a Call for Auditions: "The Waiting Room"

September 12, 2011

The Meramec Theatre will conduct auditions for Lisa Loomer's “The Waiting Room” 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 27, and Wednesday, Sept. 28, in the Meramec Studio Theatre, 11333 Big Bend Road.

The play calls for five males and four females. No preparation is required.  Audition consists of cold readings from the script, which are on reserve in the library on campus.

“The Waiting Room” is directed by Michelle Rebollo with set design by Rick Willmore. Production times and dates are 7:30 p.m. Nov. 16-19 and 2 p.m. Nov. 20. The play is for mature audiences only.

“The Waiting Room” is a dark comedy about the timeless quest for beauty -- and its cost. Three women from different centuries meet in a modern doctor’s waiting room. Forgiveness from Heaven is an 18th century Chinese woman whose bound feet are causing her to lose her toes. Victoria is a 19th century tightly corseted Englishwoman suffering what is commonly known as “hysteria.”  Wanda is a modern gal from New Jersey who is having problems with her silicone breasts. Husbands, doctors, Freud, the drug industry and the FDA all come under examination. The play is a wild ride through medical and sexual politics, including the politics of the ever-present battle with breast cancer.
