Set in a single dining room, six actors perform 18 overlapping scenes from different households. Each scene focuses around a different family during different time periods. At its heart, it tells the story of the dying culture of upper-middle class Americans who over time have focused less on tradition and more on family progress.
CAST REQUIREMENTS: 3 Males, 3 Females.
- All ethnicities encouraged to audition.
- The actors must be able to portray a wide variety of characters, from little boys to stern grandfathers, and from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids.
- Scenes run the gamut from a father lecturing his son on grammar and politics; a boy returning from boarding school to discover his mother's infidelity; a senile grandmother doesn't recognize her own sons at Thanksgiving dinner; a daughter, her marriage a shambles, pleads futilely to return home, and other subjects.
Sides from the script will be made available at the audition. All roles available. Casting is open to all adults of any age. Ethnicities, races, and newcomers are especially welcomed.
Performance Dates: Sept. 7,15,21,22,28,29 at 8pm and Sept. 8,9,16,23 at 2pm
Actors are asked to arrive to sign in within the first hour of the audition start time. All roles are available and casting is open; newcomers are especially welcomed! Crew and other volunteers are also needed for the event. If interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
***IMPORTANT: You will be asked to list ALL potential conflict dates AT THE TIME of your audition (not after casting as the director reserves the right to replace anyone who develops too many conflicts AFTER casting). Please be prepared with your calendar and out-dates, as a rehearsal schedule will be generated based upon availability of staff and cast.
