Audition Announcement for Easthampton Theater Company’s Production of Harvey Fierstein’s Torch Song

When: Tuesday Sept.19th and Wednesday Sept.20th from 6pm to 9pm with callbacks Sept. 27th 6-9PM.

Location: St. Philips Church Parish Hall, 126 Main Street, Easthampton, MA

Script/Version: This is the 2-act 2018 Broadway revival titled simply Torch Song (not the Trilogy) and the script is available from Concord Theatricals as well as other on-line sources. The two act version is very faithful to the original. All roles are open, actors must be 18+ prior to first rehearsal.

The life of Arnold Beckoff, a torch song-singing, Jewish drag queen living in New York City, is dramatized over the span of the late 1970s and 1980s. Told with a likable, human voice and considerable humor, Torch Song follows Arnold’s odyssey to find happiness in New York. All he wants is a husband, a child, and a pair of bunny slippers that fit, but a visit from his overbearing mother reminds him that he needs one thing more: respect.

Directed by Edward Ryan
Produced by Michael O. Budnick and Jason Rose-Langston

Rehearsals are scheduled to begin in early November in Easthampton with performances in late January and early February, 2024. Please go to to the following link for detailed information and sign-up instructions.
