Walking with Walt Auditions

Walking with Walt

COS is excited to announce auditions for their upcoming production of "Walking With Walt," scheduled to run in the Kenneth Ford Theater September 7, 8 and 9.

The auditions will be held in the theater on the COS campus on Monday, June 11, 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm, consisting of cold readings from sides of the script. The first read through is scheduled for Wednesday, June 13 from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Rehearsals will be held in two parts; Monday-Friday, June 18 through June 22 and August 6 through August 24. Times will be determined once we know the casts availability.

"Walking with Walt" was written by local author Tim Holt and centers around the physical and emotional journey of a West Coast dock worker who, inspired by the poetry of Walt Whitman, quits his job and starts walking across the country. He is accompanied by the great poet himself, who serves as Sam's guide and mentor.

The play features six major characters ranging in age from 17 to 70, plus an assortment of smaller roles in the same age range. The major characters include Sam Marler, the dock worker, in his mid-40s, and Walt Whitman, age 70. Sam's romantic interest, Rebecca Graves, is also in her mid-40s. Rebecca's daughter Sara is in her mid- to late teens, as is Jeremiah, a budding musician who joins Sam and Walt on their journey. Christopher Crawford, a rival of Sam's for Rebecca's affections, is in his mid-30s.
