TOKENS OF AFFECTION
Auditions: TOKENS OF AFFECTION
The Front Porch Players
The Front Porch Players in Jonesboro announce open auditions for the comedy TOKENS OF AFFECTION at our space in the Family Life Center of the First Presbyterian Church of Jonesboro, 1842 Lake Jodeco Rd., Jonesboro, GA. Roles are non-Equity, non-paying. No monologues; auditions will be cold readings from the script. Resumes and headshots appreciated but not necessary. Play is somewhat farce-like, fast-paced.
PERFORMANCE DATES: August 19-21, 26-28. Friday performances 7:30; Sunday performances, 2:30
Definitive rehearsal times and dates will be determined after casting
Director: Karen Ferrell-White
Charlie Garrett, 34. A software designer living in Manhattan. Creates perfect little worlds with very clear rules from the comfort of his own home. Which is why he hates to leave his home.
Rita Randall, 47. Charlie’s neighbor and friend, a former actress. Pragmatic, chatty, and loyal. Though she has left the stage, she still delights in drama.
Claire Garrett Burnham , 31. Charlie’s sister, a chef in Connecticut. Playful, bossy, and never wrong. Excels at picturing worst-case scenarios.
Frank Garrett, 63. Charlie’s father, an insurance salesman in Connecticut. Death of a Salesman’s Willy Loman if his life had turned out better. Good-humored and lightly befuddled.
Bruce Burnham, 35. Claire’s husband, a real estate agent in Connecticut. The golden boy. Knows how to close a deal. Unflappable. (Doesn’t really get a lot of the humor in situations)
Jackie Garrett, 60. Charlie’s mother. The sort of woman who always remembers your birthday and the contents of your medicine cabinet.
Ages of cast are somewhat malleable; the younger men and women should be believably in their 30s–makeup can do a good deal to age someone either up or down. Considering cast from 20s-late 60s.
AN ABILITY TO DO A CLEAN MID-WESTERN ACCENT IS A MUST.
