The Firehouse Center for the Arts is currently holding an open call audition for the role of MRS. MULLER in our upcoming
production of Doubt – A Parable. Rehearsals will take place during weeknights and weekends
based upon cast availability.

Synopsis of the play:
New York, 1964. Father Flynn is the beloved pastor of St. Nicholas Catholic church, doing good
works within his flock and community. The principal of the Catholic school is Sister Aloysius, an
impervious and powerful woman who begins to believe that Father Flynn is a little too friendly
with a particular, troubled young student. She enlists the confidence of a young and naive nun,
Sister James, to report on Father Flynn’s behavior. Those reports convince Sister Aloysius that
Father Flynn is improper at best, and predatory at worst.

Note: Doubt is a 90 minute play performed without intermission.

unless otherwise specified. While most characters within the story are binary and written with
