Casting Teen Performers for Theatre Season 17

Salisbury, NC, United States
ID: 571325Exp: 7/13/2024

Teen performers are needed for Theatre Season 17. Please see the details below. ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE ACCEPTED. About the project: "Moonlight and Magnolias" 1939 Hollywood is abuzz. Legendary producer David O. Selznick has shut down produc-tion of his new epic, Gone with the Wind, a film adaptation of Margaret Mitchell’s novel. The screenplay, you see, just doesn’t work. So what’s an all-powerful movie mogul to do? While fending off the film’s stars, gossip columnists and his own father-in-law, Selznick sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls formidable director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz. "She Kills Monsters" She Kills Monsters tells the story of high schooler Agnes Evans as she deals with the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. "LIZZIE" In the heat of late summer 1892, Andrew Borden and his wife are found murdered in their house. The main suspect in the murders is Andrew’s youngest daughter from a previous marriage, Lizzie Borden. Using a searing rock score, and based on the historical record, LIZZIE explores the heady. "The Holiday Channel Christmas Movie Wonderthon" Christmas: a time for magic. A time for the traditions we cherish. A time to watch as many original TV movies as a human being can possibly endure. But now with The Holiday Channel Christmas Movie Wonderthon, you can enjoy the sugar rush of six Christmas movies all at once! Welcome to Hopewood Falls, Vermont, where singles in adorable sweaters converge to look for love. Can disguises help royalty and/or movie stars find the down-to-earth connections they crave? Will evil city slickers destroy charming inns and/or Christmas tree farms? Isn't it a little creepy for a meet-cute to depend on one person being in a coma? "Neil Simon's Rumors" At a large, tastefully-appointed Sneden's Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though it's only a flesh wound, Charlie Brock's self-inflicted injury sets off a series of events causing four couples to experience a severe attack of farce. As their tenth wedding anniversary party commences, Charlie lies bleeding in another room, and his wife Myra is nowhere in sight. The first guests, lawyer Ken Gorman and his wife Chris, scramble to get “the story” straight before the other guests arrive.

45 roles

David O. SelznickMale17-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Is obsessive, driven, and just a little nuts. GWTW is his masterpiece; he must have it how he sees it, and nothing must stand in the way. It's his only chance to make one great film. "Moonlight and Magnolias"

Ben HechtMale17-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Is the quick‐witted, articulate newspaperman turned script doctor. Sardonic but principled, he stands against everything that GWTW represents. Passionate anti‐holocaust activist. "Moonlight and Magnolias"

Vic FlemingMale17-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Is a real man's man, friend of Clark Gable, talented, caustic, and capable. Does not suffer fools gladly. Don't confuse him with someone who gives a damn. "Moonlight and Magnolias"

Ms. PoppenghulFemale17-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Is Selznick's long‐suffering, loyal, competent secretary. "Moonlight and Magnolias"

Tilly Evans / Tillius the PaladinMale15-18 y.o.All ethnicities

A nerdy, tomboy and closeted lesbian in real life who is obsessed with Dungeons and Dragons, she is famous among the geek crowd at her school. In the world of D&D, she’s a level 20 Paladin, Healer of wounds and protector of lights; aka not to be messed with. She’s spunky, powerful, agile and brings a young energy and fresh spirit. She dies at the very start of the show. The character that shows up in the play is a creation of Agnes’s imagination. "She Kills Monsters"

Agnes EvansMale15-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Tilly’s older sister. At first an average girl, of average height, of average weight, and average build. Has no knowledge of the DnD culture. By her junior year, she has transformed into “magnificent cheerleadery.” In her Senior year, she discovers Tilly’s D&D book and wants to play it. "She Kills Monsters"

ChuckMale15-18 y.o.All ethnicities

A dorky freshmen, outspoken but self-aware nerd who loves the “Grunge Rocker roadie” look, a D&D enthusiast, also goes by the name “DM Biggs”. He is employed at the local game store and is a Dungeon Master who knew Tilly during her life. He acts the Dungeon Master for the game Agnes plays. "She Kills Monsters"

MilesMale15-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Agnes’ boyfriend, not at all into “nerd culture”. He is a football player, and very sweet. He tries very hard. He’s just your average square kinda guy who can come off as being very frat. He genuinely loves Agnes and is a caring guy. Eventually, he joins in the DnD game, playing alongside Agnes. "She Kills Monsters"

Lilith Morningstar / LilyFemale15-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Her DnD Character class: Demon Queen. Acts as her party’s muscle. Has probably been alive for eternity. Very hot and essentially Tilly’s girlfriend. Also very sarcastic, serious and self-aware. Think Gamora from “Guardians of the Galaxy.” In the real world, Lily is an average, modest teenager who wears glasses. "She Kills Monsters"

Kaliope Darkwalker / KellyMale15-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Her DnD Character is a Dark Elf. Acts as the party’s master tracker, lock picker, magic-user, and all-around elven ass-kicker. She’s athletic, a waywatcher and navigator. Very analytical. She gives off earthy vibes. In real life, she has cerebral palsy and uses forearm crutches to help her. Ronnie is her older brother. "She Kills Monsters"

Orcus / RonnieMale15-18 y.o.All ethnicities

His DnD character is a red demon. Has probably been alive for eternity. Former Overlord of the Underworld and current couch potato. If there’s a lost soul, he’ll either have it or at least know where it is. He’s the comedic relief of the party. In the real world, Ronnie is a normal sloppy teenager, his sister is Kelly. "She Kills Monsters"

Vera / The BeholderFemale15-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Agnes’s best friend and fellow cheerleader, but would rather be with the punk-rockers. She clearly is only a cheerleader because Agnes is one. In the DnD game, she becomes a ferocious single eyeballed monster with sharp sharklike teeth. "She Kills Monsters"

SteveMale15-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Character Class: Mage. Adventurer supreme. He is dorky both in D&D and the real world. "She Kills Monsters"

FarrahMale15-18 y.o.All ethnicities

A little forest faerie. Appears very young. She’s adorable, but she’s actually an angry savage in a small package. "She Kills Monsters"

Evil GabbiMale15-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Evil succubi cheerleader and a great dancer. Tilly’s vision of pure evil; the epitome of fake-nice preppy girl. She appears as normal a cheerleader that tormented Tilly as well as a succubi cheerleader in the D&D game. "She Kills Monsters"

Evil TinaFemale15-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Evil succubi cheerleader and a great dancer. Tilly’s vision of pure evil; the epitome of fake-nice preppy girl. She appears as normal a cheerleader that tormented Tilly as well as a succubi cheerleader in the D&D game. "She Kills Monsters"

Lizzie BordenFemale17-18 y.o.All ethnicities

(high belt: F#3-F#5, belt to A5* if possible) is damaged, twisted. She can turn on a dime from fragile, broken, meek and obedient to conniving, sinister, furious and terrifying. She is a wounded animal backed into a corner, terrified but enraged. We find her at the moment she realizes she has nothing to lose. She is transformed through an act of unspeakable transgression, turning her own historical infamy into an ascension to legend. "LIZZIE"

Emma BordenFemale17-18 y.o.All ethnicities

(Alto/mezzo belt: F#3-D5) is the older sister, eclipsed by the younger. She must content herself by playing a motherly Lady Macbeth to Lizzie, dripping her own hatreds into Lizzie's ears over the years, stoking the fires of Lizzie's rage, disappearing when the deeds must be done, and suffering with guilt afterwards. Emma is a woman who has come to see that every opportunity for happiness has passed her by. She's furious, but she's also desperately sad. "LIZZIE"

Bridget Sullivan/MaggieMale17-18 y.o.All ethnicities

(contralto\low alto: F3 with E3 pick-up\ghost-notes in one number) Eb5 (E5* opt. In one ad lib.) is the Borden's Irish maid. She may be a Banshee, called to wail at the Borden's door. She always seems to know what is going to happen, does things one step before anyone else. She's put upon, angry, and as resentful of the Borden sisters as she is of the parents. "LIZZIE"

Alice RussellFemale17-18 y.o.All ethnicities

(High mezzo lyric/mix/belt: G3 with F#3 pick-up/ ghost-notes in one number- A5* legit soprano) is the Borden's next-door neighbor. She is a luscious pear, the sensuous mother-sister-lover which is sorely lacking in Lizzie's life. She appears to Lizzie in her greatest moments of need and attempts to lead her away from a path of destruction and toward one of love, truth, and affection. "LIZZIE"
