The Community Players will be holding open auditions for the first show of their 2016-17 season, Real Women Have Curves by Josefina Lopez and directed by Eddie Diaz. Auditions will be Monday and Tuesday, May 16 and 17, with call backs on Wednesday, May 18 if necessary. Actors will be asked to do cold readings from the script. The character breakdowns are as follows:
ANA- 18, plump and pretty, sister of Estela, daughter of Carmen. She is a recent high school graduate and a young feminist.
Estela- 24, plump, plain-looking, owner of the “Garcia Sewing Factory.”
CARMEN- 48, a short, large woman, mother of ANA and ESTELA. She has a talent for storytelling.
PANCHA- 32, a huge woman who is very mellow in her ways, but quick with her tongue.
ROSALI- 29, only a bit plump in comparison to the rest of the women. She is sweet and easygoing.
PLEASE NOTE: There is a scene in the show where the women are required to remove articles of clothing to reveal their undergarments.
