Seeking actors for the following roles:
Jerry Finnegan’s Sister – show runs July 20-Sept 1 (first rehearsal June 28)
Written by Jack Neary
Directed by Jarel Davidow
Character Breakdown: This is a memory play, as told by Brian. In a series of fast-moving flashbacks, two actors will play their respective characters as kids, teens and young adults. Both actors must be funny and facile with character work.
Brian Dowd: 25 years old. Awkward and geeky – bit of a “Howdy Doody” type. Although he is smart and funny, he always gets nervous and tongue-tied around Beth Finnegan, his best friend’s sister and lifelong, unrequited crush. Brian is our narrator and must be comfortable telling his story directly to the audience.
Beth Finnegan: 24 years old. Smart, kind, astute and self-assured, even as a kid. She has always been aware of Brian’s crush on her. Must play a ukulele in the show (easy instrument to learn).
The Long Weekend – show runs Sept 14-Oct 13 (first rehearsal Aug 23)
Written by Norm Foster
Directed by Jarel Davidow
