Due to an expected high number of actresses
wanting to audition, we ask that those interested
please email your headshots and resumes to
firstname.lastname@example.org. If you don't have a headshot,
please include a recent photograph of some type.
We do ask, if you are sending a photo, let us see
your face, not one of you waving hi to mom and
dad at the edge of the Grand Canyon taken from
50 feet away.
"The Women" centers around a group of New
York society women and their men. More precisely,
their men troubles. It is a faced paced play driven
by dialog. With it's catty remarks and witty reparte,
it is an incredibly funny piece.
At this time, all roles are open. It is a large cast, and
other than the principals and a few supporting roles,
there are many "one scene" characters. Actresses
will be cast as two or three of these characters to
be able to utilize your time and talents to their fullest,
and frankly, these characters have some of the best
lines in the show. The age range is open so all are
welcome to audition.
There is also a call for the part of "Little Mary" who
is the daughter of the main character. Her age range
should be between 10 and 14 as the character can
be made a bit older than the script calls for. A note to
the parents: The subject matter of the play is infidelity
and divorce. Some parents may find it too mature for
their child or the subject may hit too close to home.
Some children are a little more emotionally
advanced and understand what things mean. Only you
can be the judge and make that decision. Little Mary
is in four scenes, two in act one and two in act two.
Parents are welcomed to accompany their child through
rehearsals and be there through performances. If the
parent will not be the one attending, it is asked that
the director or stage manager be introduced in advance
to the person delegated by the family to accompany
or pick up your child.
