Pride Films & Plays is currently looking for two understudies for its upcoming production of “Casa Valentina” by Harvey Fierstein.
The play is about a group of men in 1962 who gather at a resort in the Catskills to spend time with like-minded men as they explore “the woman within”. Most of the characters are married, heterosexual men who defined themselves at the time as cross-dressers. By today’s definitions, some of them would be identified as transgender and others would be identified as men who express an alternate side of themselves by dressing and acting like women. Note: All characters appear dressed as their female identities.
1) Understudy for Terry and Amy/The Judge – Both characters in their late 60s – early 70s
2) Understudy for Bessie and Charlotte – Both characters in their 50s – early 60s
Rehearsals are currently underway. The show runs mid-August through the end of September.
There is a stipend plus additional pay if you go on. (No guaranteed performance.)
