Vexler Theatre in San Antonio preparing Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross, RSVPs for auditions & crew by August 31

Vexler Theatre San AntonioComing Soon: Glengarry Glen Ross by David Mamet. Audition Date TBA. Please inform us of your interest by August 31st.


The Sheldon Vexler Theatre in San Antonio is currently designing a specialized project for the production of
Glengarry Glen Ross by David Mamet. If you have an interest in this particular script, please email by Friday, August 31st. Include a good contact phone number. Theatrical resume is optional, not required. Please see below for logistical details on performance dates and the rehearsal period.

Casting 8 characters aged 30s and up. Casting will include both male and female actors.
Performances February 7- March 3, 2013, Thursdays at 7:30pm, Saturdays at 8:00pm, Sunday matinees at 2:30pm, and Sunday evening shows at 7:30pm on 2/24 and 3/3. Call times are 60 minutes before curtain.

Rehearsals will begin with a few meetings, read-throughs, and table work sessions in December. A typical Vex rehearsal schedule is Monday- Thursday 7pm-10pm. Friday and weekend rehearsals are scheduled as needed throughout the rehearsal period. The final two weeks and weekends of rehearsals include technical and dress rehearsals with the full company called.

Glengarry Glen Ross is Mamet at his very best, writing about small-time, cutthroat real estate salesmen trying to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their share of the American dream. The Vex presents a new twist to the traditionally all-male cast by converting a few of the characters to women, touching on current issues of female competition in male-dominated industries. The script for Glengarry Glen Ross can be found at some bookstores, on Ebooks such as the Kindle, and at the licensing agency Samuel French.
