Open auditions for Heller Theatre’s “And the Winner Is” by Mitch Albom will convene from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday, July 26, 2010 at Henthorne Performing Arts Center, 4825 S. Quaker in Tulsa, OK. If needed, callbacks will be held at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 29, 2010.
“And the Winner Is” tells the comic story of Tyler Johnes, a self-obsessed movie star, who is finally nominated for an Oscar, only to die the night before the awards. Outraged at his bad luck and determined to know if he wins, he bargains with a heavenly gatekeeper to return to earth for the big night. Along the way, he drags his agent, his acting rival, his bombshell girlfriend and his ex-wife into the journey, in a wildly twisting tale of Hollywood, the afterlife, and how we are judged. Written by Mitch Albom, the writer of “Tuesdays with Morrie” and “The Five People You Meet in Heaven,” this is a quirky, heartfelt and slightly wicked tale of life, death and sacrifice.
Characters needed are: One woman – age 20s-30s; one woman – age 30s-40s; two men – age 30s-40s; and two men – age 30s-60s, one with an Irish accent.
