For our 2014 Season we are particularly seeking to fill the following roles locally, from our upcoming production of Over The Pub:
EDDIE (age 16-19) The eldest sibling, Eddie has a reputation to maintain. He feels he is an adult now and wants to have that responsibility and respect. He stands up for his beliefs in an argument with his father, which leads to him leaving home. He also has a fair amount of guilt due to his newfound thoughts about girls.
ANNIE (age 15-18) The put-upon sibling, Annie has a major confidence issue. She doesn’t believe in herself as being smart or pretty, but has a heart of gold. She is shy to open up, both to peers and her family, and therefore has a lot of secrets, such as going to adult movies and skipping school. She also sneaks home candy bars every day, much to her mother’s chagrin.
TOMMY (age 13-16) On the brink of adolescence, Tommy is seeing everything in a new perspective. He is a free thinker with an analytic mind. Very earnest, he has strong opinions about what is right and how the world works. This gets him into a lot of trouble at Sunday School, as his innocently formed thoughts, blending science and contemporary ideas with the scriptures, is blasphemous to Sister Mary Agnes.
MIKIE (age 12-15) A sweet, soft soul, Mikie has an undefined learning disability and feels things very deeply. He is a keen observer, seeing everything that goes around him and understands better than most people realize. He is an excellent mimic, which can get himself and his siblings into trouble.
Junior Intern Auditions:
April 12th and 13th, 1:00-5:00pm by appointment with Education Director Josh Feder at email@example.com. Please prepare 32 measures of a song and present a monologue of your choice under one minute. For ages 12-18. Teenagers interested in technical internships should make an audition appointment as well to discuss and meet with the staff. Saturday, April 12th auditions will be held at Whipple Hall in New London, NH. Whipple Hall is the corner of Main Street and Seaman’s Road. Sunday, April 13th auditions will be held at the Northern Stage Rehearsal Studio, 76 Gates Street in White River Junction, VT.
