Actors take note: Center Stage at the Southampton Cultural Center will hold open auditions for Tracy Letts’s “August: Osage County” on Jan. 18 at 3 p.m. and Jan. 19 at 5 p.m. at the center. Winner of five Tony Awards, including best play, “August: Osage County” takes place in the Oklahoma home of Beverly Weston, a 69-year-old alcoholic and former poet who has disappeared, and his wife, Violet, a manipulative alcoholic and addict.
The couple’s three daughters and their companions return home for what turns out to be three weeks of dysfunctional family dynamics. Twelve roles, including Beverly, Violet, and two of the daughters, are available. Auditions will involve readings from the script. Performances will begin in March.
