The Morris Theatre Guild announced that its next show will be “American Buffalo.” Auditions will be from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 18, and from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 19, at the Morris Theatre Guild, 516 W. Illinois Ave.
Auditions include cold readings from the script.
“American Buffalo” is a play written by David Mamet about three crooks trying to rob a man of a coin – a valuable Buffalo nickel.
Parts include Donny, a man in his 50s who owns the junk shop and has a degree over both Bobby and Teach. Teach, a man in his 50s, is strong and aggressive with the bravado of a confident thief even though he doesn’t have a clue how to handle himself. Bobby is Don’s “gopher” – he does things such as grabbing coffee.
