Peter’s Alley is now accepting Non-Equity Actor Submissions for our Spring 2020 production of
Proof by David Auburn.
Directed by Aly B. Ettman
Casting:
Catherine: (F 25) A young/old, inexperienced/world weary bundle of contradictions. Possibly a genius, possibly schizophrenic, possibly both.
Claire: (F 29-30’s) Catherine’s sister. Sharp, sophisticated, well-meaning but out of touch with her sister’s needs.
Hal: (M 28) A somewhat geeky, once eager, now slightly jaded mathematician who digs Catherine
Robert: (M 50’s) Father to Catherine and Claire. A lauded mathematical genius and professor debilitated by mental illness. Demanding with a quick wit.
Please submit H/R to [email protected]
Auditions (By Invitation Only) will be held Sunday, Feb.23 at The Writer’s Center
Pay.
Rehearsals begin early April in Bethesda.
Production Runs May 29th thru June 28th at The Writer’s Center in Bethesda, MD

Peter's Alley is now accepting Non-Equity Actor Submissions for our
September 2019 Production of The Gulf by Audrey Cefaly
Directed by Aly B. Ettman

Casting:
BETTY- (20’s-40’s) An optimist. A thinker. Restless and tender hearted.
KENDRA ((20’s-40’s) A woman of few words. A loner. Scrappy, dark, brutish, and volatile.

They want what we all want. To find peace. Two lost and lonely people, six years into a volatile, troubled love affair, and then one night, it breaks. Badly. I felt it was vital that the plot not be the twists and turns brought on by outside incursions but the runaway mine train of their dying relationship (Audrey Cefaly)

*Note: The Gulf includes both intimate and violent physical contact that will be fully, safely and respectfully choreographed.

AUDITIONS (BY INVITATION ONLY):
SUNDAY, MARCH 24 12PM-3PM
(Callbacks Sunday, March 31st 12pm-3pm)
AT THE WRITER’S CENTER;
Audition requirements will be sent with invitation.

*Sponsor Presentation / Fundraising Event: Sat. May 4th
*Rehearsals Begin late July in Bethesda

Happy New Year(+one month)!!!
2019 is looking so bright for Peter's Alley so far and we are so pleased to share ALL the BIG NEWS.

The first headline is that Peter's Alley Theatre Productions is now officially PETER’S ALLEY INC.!!

2018 was truly transformative for the company as we took a GIANT leap forward, successfully incorporating as a Non-Profit (501 (c) (3) Organization. This step will elevate our professional status and greatly expand our access to avenues of fiscal growth and development. But the biggest gift of incorporation is the creation of our Working Board of Directors: Artistic Director Aly B. Ettman, Alison Bauer, Peter Caress, Jenna Murphy and Dan Remmers, otherwise known as the Alley Cats? Ok, we’ll work on it! This talented group brings valuable business acumen and a collective enthusiasm along with their formidable creative skills. Additionally, longtime patron and President of Friends of Southwest DC, Ms.Coralie Farlee, has agreed to serve as our Board Member- At- Large. It is beyond inspiring for all of us to collaborate with colleagues and friends who share such a strong passion and vision for Peter’s Alley.

Our Story

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Peter's Alley is Back and BETTER than ever!

PETER’S ALLEY INC.

2018 was truly transformative for the company as we took a GIANT leap forward, successfully incorporating as a Non-Profit (501 (c) (3) Organization. This step will elevate our professional status and greatly expand our access to avenues of fiscal growth and development. But the biggest gift of incorporation is the creation of our Working Board of Directors: Artistic Director Aly B. Ettman, Alison Bauer, Peter Caress, Jenna Murphy and Dan Remmers, otherwise known as the Alley Cats? Ok, we’ll work on it! This talented group brings valuable business acumen and a collective enthusiasm along with their formidable creative skills. Additionally, longtime patron and President of Friends of Southwest DC, Ms.Coralie Farlee, has agreed to serve as our Board Member- At- Large. It is beyond inspiring for all of us to collaborate with colleagues and friends who share such a strong passion and vision for Peter’s Alley.

A NEW HOME

We are thrilled to announce that our debut as Peter’s Alley, Inc. will take place at The Allan B. Lefcowitz Theatre at The Writer’s Center in Bethesda, MD. The Lefcowitz is a lovely black box, perfectly suited to our intimate, character-focused work. The location is super accessible, in walking distance to the Red Line Metro and just minutes from the DC and VA lines. Nestled in the heart of Downtown Bethesda, there is a fantastic array of restaurants and bars to enjoy pre or post - performance. Copious off-street parking, free on weekends, is another big plus! We are super excited about our new home and look forward to welcoming a diverse Bethesda audience and inviting our faithful “Arlingtonians” to cross the river and continue the journey with us!

THE GULF

Speaking of rivers...we are equally excited to announce that our 2019-2020 Season will kick off in September, 2019 with a production of The Gulf by gifted, local playwright Audrey Cefaly! The production will mark the Maryland premiere of this unique and compelling play, which has received numerous awards, and is being produced across the globe to critical acclaim. With its rich,complex characters and emotional intensity, The Gulf is a quintessential Peter’s Alley show. We can't think of a better way to embark on a beautiful new chapter than with Audrey's beautiful work.

NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOU

Naturally, with growth comes added responsibility, both creative and financial. For the past six years, Peter's Alley has managed to consistently achieve artistic mastery, producing plays featuring "Broadway- caliber" acting and direction on miniscule budgets. However, with our new venue and ever-rising costs, our modest production budgets must increase exponentially. Fortunately, our newly minted Non-Profit 501(c) (3) status, allows us to convert this challenge into exciting opportunities by offering Tax-Deductible contributions and sponsorships. Our supporters will also be able to engage with us on an enhanced level as Volunteers on our Peter's Alley team. Though challenging, with the encouragement and support of loyal colleagues and patrons like you, we are ready to reach our goals, while ensuring that high artistic merit and an inspirational professional environment remain at the core of our mission

2019 is already looking really bright for Peter’s Alley and for all of you too, we hope! There will be lots more news to come , so please keep your eye out for future e-mails and check out our newly renovated website: www.petersalley.com for updates and info about how you can be a part of this exciting new chapter.

We look forward to seeing you and sharing with you soon! .
