Quincy Community Theatre announces auditions for its doggone hilarious production of 'Sylvia,' July 29 & 30 by appointment only. Auditions are from 6:00-9:00 p.m.

Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in Suburbia. Greg’s career, as a derivative trader, has suddenly come to a halt, while Kate’s career, as a public-school English teacher, is beginning to offer her more opportunities. Greg brings home a dog he found in Central Park – or that has found him – bearing only the name “Sylvia” on her nametag. Street-smart, sassy and sarcastic: Sylvia is your typical “Labradoodle”. And she quickly becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. Sylvia offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, she becomes a rival for affection. Can the marriage be saved? Will the dog master the master? 'Sylvia' runs September 12-15 & 19-22, with technical rehearsals September 7-11.

QCT is looking for an actress between the ages of 18-30 to play the sassy pup; an actor in his 40-50’s to play her frustrated, middle-aged master; an actress in her 40-50’s to play Greg’s successful wife; and an actor or actress in their 40-50’s to play the dynamic roles of Tom/Phyllis/Leslie. Due to adult situations and themes, this rollicking comedy is intended for older puppies.
