RIPCORD

by David Lindsay-Abaire

May 10-19, 2024
Thursday-Saturday 7:30 pm |
Sunday 2 pm | + Saturday May 18 at 2 pm

Rivalry and pettiness only ripens with age, and Ripcord is proof that no one does a bet like two elderly women competing for the best room at their senior living facility.
Abby is best described as irritable and grouchy, but she has the best room in Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so life isn’t that bad. At least, until the lively Marilyn moves in and Abby knows she has got to go. A bet between the two roommates quickly escalates into a game of one-upmanship involving two worthy opponents and deeper truths each wants to keep hidden.

AUDITIONS

Ripcord

March 11, 2024 6pm

There are roles available for 3 women (ages 20-89) and 3 men (ages 20-49).
A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so when the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the old women quickly escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden.

AUDITIONS

Beautiful: The Carol King Musical

March 18 & 19 6pm

Multiple roles are available for men and women aged 14+.
Please prepare 16-32 measures of a pop song from the 50s, 60s or 70s (nothing by Carole King) that shows off your voice and bring sheet music in the correct key.
The audition will include choreography, so please dress comfortably, and bring your jazz shoes (if you have them).
Beautiful is a wild ride of a musical that starts with a young, spunky songwriter from Brooklyn known then as Carole Klein. From the chart-topping hits she wrote to her life-changing success as a trailblazer, this musical takes you back to where it all began with the inspiring tale of the girl with a unique voice who became King.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem is a community driven arts organization. As such, we see the true value and the critical role that diversity serves in helping our theatre and community thrive. Going forward, we are determined to foster an environment that respects and promotes the value of diversity. The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem believes in the transformative power of the arts to enrich lives and revitalize communities. We are committed to sustaining a diverse, inclusive, and equitable space where everyone who participates in our programming — patrons, artists, employees, volunteers, and students — feels valued and respected regardless of gender, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, education, or ability.

While this is not an end-all statement and will constantly evolve as we and our organization (continues to) learn and grow, this is a starting point for forming actions that will encourage equity and make an impact.

Commitment (some in place some and some in the process):

  • Evaluating all scripts with considerations towards inclusion and diversity within the season.

  • Increasing camp accessibility by providing scholarships to those in need of financial assistance.

  • Creating an equitable internship that includes compensation.

  • Seeking the recruitment, retention, and support of Black and Indigenous artists and teachers of Color.

  • Seeking opportunities to provide resources for students and their families to attend shows.

  • Working with individual directors to strive for diverse casts and design teams.

  • Ensuring that all directors have casting and dramaturgical resources available to them to protect and support the cultural specificity required of the work.
