LVLT announces Open Auditions for
"The Portuguese Kid" by John Patrick Shanley

Directed by Chris Davies

Audition Dates and Times:
October 8 & 9 from 6:30-8:30pm

Las Vegas Little Theatre 3920 Schiff Drive

All roles are available. 

Atalanta Lagana (F) late 40s to early 50s - Greek American, diva(ish), confident, tomboy as a child to treated like a queen


Barry Dragonetti (M) late 40s to early 50s - Sicilian, Croation American, confident but a momma's boy trying break out of shell


Fausta Dragonetti (F) over 60 - Croation immigrant, Barry's Mother, overly involved and protective, no woman is good enough for her son


Patty Dragonetti (F) late 20s to early 30s - New Jersey Puerto Rican - self-indulgent and spicy, too hot to handle


Freddie Imbrossi (M) late 20s to early 30s - Italian American - street wise, lacking self direction, a ladies man

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Headshots and resumes are accepted but are not required.

Set in Providence, RI habitually widowed Atalanta pays a visit to her second-rate lawyer, Barry Dragonetti.  Intending to settle her latest husband's affairs, this larger-than-life Greek tightwad quickly becomes a nightmare for her cheesy, self-aggrandizing attorney.  Add in Barry's impossible Croatian mother, a dash of politics, and a couple of opportunistic young lovers, and you have in hand a recipe for comic combustion.

Performance Dates:

December 6 - 22, 2019 with performances on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm. There is an additional Saturday matinee at 2pm on December 14.
