Grandstreet Theatre is seeking one actor for their upcoming Studio Theatre production of the acclaimed one man play; Buyer and Cellar.
Grandstreet Theatre is accepting video audition submissions from March 15, 2017 through March 29, 2017. Please submit a video audition that includes the Buyer and Cellar Audition Monologue, available for download on our website, more information below.
End of May 2017 – Early June 2017
This is a quick and flexible rehearsal process. Because Buyer and Cellar is a one man show, the rehearsal schedule will be tailored to the availability of the actor who is cast in the role. If the actor is available for daytime rehearsals, the rehearsal process could be as short as two weeks. If the actor is only available for evening rehearsals, the rehearsal process would probably lengthen to three or more weeks. Please include specific daytime rehearsal availability in your audition email.
June 15, 2017 – June 25, 2017 / 10 performances total

What to Prepare
Please send a video audition via email that includes a performance of the monologue available here:
Alex More (Male, older than 20 and younger than 40) An out of work actor who is hired to work in Barbra Streisand’s basement. Alex is funny, playful, and an excellent story teller. The actor will play several characters in the show including his boyfriend Barry, Barbra’s assistant Sharon, and even Barbra Streisand herself. With a simple shift of focus and an alteration of his voice, Alex embodies the essence of the other characters in the show.
About the Show
Alex More has a story to tell, and he’s taking the audience along for the ride. A struggling actor in L.A. takes a job working in the Malibu basement of beloved megastar Barbra Streisand. One day, the lady of the house comes downstairs to play. It feels like real bonding in the basement, but will their relationship ever make it upstairs? Buyer and Cellar is an outrageous comedy with one actor playing all the roles, including Barbra herself! This crowd-pleasing fantasy is so delightfully absurd, you’ll wish it were true!
These auditions are open to all students in our community ages 9-16. At the audition, students will sing a short selection from a song from the show, read sides/scenes from the script, and learn some choreography for a short dance/movement call. Please follow the following 4 steps to help you have a successful audition:
Please bring dates for all commitments from April 10th through June 2nd. No conflicts are allowed June 5th through 11th. Please feel free to contact the Director, Dawn Lee Kangas, at #406-461-3114 or [email protected] with questions.

As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, it is critical for us to become more culturally aware and globally-minded. To be able to experience the global classroom first-hand and see what they have been studying come to life is truly amazing. It gives them new perspectives – not only of themselves, but also of the world around them!
We are pleased to announce a theatre tour to England in 2018. The lights dim and the voices hush. The curtain rises and you’re swept away by the performance on stage. London’s theater scene has something for every audience. Tragedies, comedies and musicals. Long-running favorites and groundbreaking debuts. You’ll explore theater’s roots at Shakespeare’s Globe and learn about its present and future during backstage tours and lectures. And of course, London is a show in its own right.
