Join the IVY LANE PLAYERS as we bid adieu to the old and embrace the adventure of the new in Steve Martin’s award-winning comedy PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE.

Come and see the fiery Albert Einstein and the passionate Pablo Picasso battle about painting, probability, lust, greed, and the future of the world.

The show is a long one act and will be performed without intermission or scene breaks. It requires a tight ensemble. There are roles for 7 males and 4 females. Age range: late teens – seventies.

Unlike most shows previously done at the library, this vehicle involves some interplay with the audience. The safety of the fourth wall is often breached by the script, so auditionees need to be comfortable directly addressing, playing to and within the audience — not just acting on the stage before an “invisible audience.”

You MUST be available for ALL performances to be considered for a lead role. Leads are expected to make all scheduled rehearsals. Supporting and featured roles MAY be double cast, depending upon various factors. Featured and supporting characters generally show up, have their scene(s) and/or monologue(s), then leave.

Please note: Mr. Martin re-wrote the script in 2017 and this is the only version Samuel French licenses to be performed. We have already purchased the performance rights from Samuel French and we are honored to be the first LI theatre to premier the revised version.

If you are familiar with the older script or the readers’ version, available at many libraries, you may, of course review those scripts, should you care to prepare to do so. The characters in the revised version remain the same. If you wish, you may peruse the 30 pages of the revised script posted on the Samuel French website.

December dates: 18TH AND 20TH.
8:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. for auditions at the Levittown Public Library, 1 Blue Grass Lane, Levittown NY.  Use the rear (Blue Grass) entrance.  Auditions will be held in the Community Room on the ground floor.
