Her hands fluttered instinctively and she made mental notes as actors moved about the stage and delivered their lines...Read More

ALBANY — After I learned of the events in San Bernardino just hours before showtime on Wednesday, it was not lost on me and my companions that the tale of a boy’s hankering after a BB gun for Christmas, in part to protect classmates and family from imaginary evildoers, might be hard to swallow. And, frankly, for the first few minutes of Act I, it was. But Maggie Mancinelli-Cahill’s curtain speech more.

Starts rehearsals:  Feb. 16, 2016   Runs:  March 11-April 3, 2016

About the play:
This delightful story loosely based on history, features the Space Task Force that helped launch the first Apollo mission. Winner of the Galileo Prize from the Alfred Sloan Foundation, this will be the second production of the play. The play focuses on how this eclectic team figured out how to get a man to AND from the moon with the aid of a “think tank” made up of Buck Rogers, Apollo, Icarus, the Red Baron, Snoopy, Galileo, Louis Leakey, etc. who appear and disappear into the woodwork.


Male. Each needs to be versatile to play the imaginary think tank characters. Physical and verbal dexterity. Comedic. Accents. All ages and ethnicities: (one of these parts will be cast with a non-AEA actor)
Actor #1: Buck Rogers, Icarus, Dr. Charles Townes, Tycho Brahe
Actor #2: Galileo, The Red Baron, Reporter


Vencel von Volp - Male, 30ish. German scientists assigned to the Task Force. The nerdy numbers man of the team – not as concerned for the human factor. Extremely proper. Obsessed with all-things math, statistics and formulas. MUST AUDITION WITH GERMAN ACCENT.

CJ Caldwell – Male, late 20s-early 30s.  Good natured, country boy who is a brilliant engineer (but hates math).  Reduces his stress by hunting ducks.  Appears to be unsophisticated, but is super intelligent.  MUST AUDITION WITH APPALACIAN/SOUTHERN ACCENT

TO AUDITION:  Please email pic/resume to Charlie Owens, Company Manager:  Actors will be asked to audition from sides from the play, which will be sent with an audition appointment time.  Actors will be required to be available 3PM-10PM Tues-Fri and both days of weekend for rehearsals.  Actors receive weekly travel/meal allotment of $150/wk.

"Exquisitely rendered moments of human interaction appear throughout “4000 Miles,” a rumpled, tough-minded and altogether rewarding little play at Capital Repertory Theatre." - Steve Barnes
