This is the second opportunity we’ve found for children’s theater in Bristol and Warren this summer; earlier we posted about the RI Youth Theatre’s production of “Seussical, Jr.” (read more here).  And, for the adults,

The Barn Summer Playhouse will hold auditions for John Patrick Shanley’s “Doubt: A Parable” on Thursday and Friday, May 26th and 27th, at 7pm at Roger Williams University’s Performing Arts Center in Bristol.  Needed are three women and one man.  Auditions will consist of cold readings.  The production will be directed by Peter Wright and will run July 8th, 9th, 14th, 15th, and 16th.  Rehearsals will begin June 1st.  “Doubt” is a powerful drama about Sister Aloysius, principal of St. Nicholas School in the Bronx, who takes matters into her own hands when she feels certain the young Father Flynn has had improper relations with one of the male students of her school.  The play is a provocative investigation of truth and consequences.  It won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award.”
