Beowulf Alley Holds Supplemental Auditions For

Rough Crossing

by Tom Stoppard


(Tucson, AZ—May 27, 2011) Beowulf Alley Theatre Company announces supplemental auditions for Tom Stoppard’s Rough Crossing, on Wednesday, June 8th, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at the Theatre, 11 S. 6th Avenue, Downtown.


Rough Crossing is a delightful 1920s show-biz farce (with musical numbers by Andre Previn). Only two roles remain to be cast and they are both excellent parts for men 40-60.  Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Actors are asked to prepare a short song* (about 1 minute in length). Character descriptions are below.


ALEX GAL (GAHL): Middle aged playwright, half of the famous team of Turai and Gal, who are working on their next smash hit, The Cruise of the Dodo. Mr. Gal is quick, witty, and never far from the buffet table (but he need not look overweight or gluttonous).


IVOR FISH: Actor, aged 45 to 50. He has been playing the young and handsome rogue hero for going on 30 years.  He still carries a torch for his perennial co-star Natasha Navratilova, though of course, he is married to someone else.


The production is directed by Dave Sewell (Arcadia, Wait Until Dark, The Transylvanian Clockworks) and will run September 8th – October 2nd. Rehearsals are scheduled to begin late July. Email Dave at for questions or more information. Note: street parking is free downtown after 5, as is the lot at 6th Avenue and Broadway (behind the Chicago Store).


*Those concerned about singing outside of the shower need not worry. Both roles involve singing in a group: a great voice is not required. The ability to carry a tune in a wheelbarrow would be helpful.
