If you’d like to skip the open call and schedule an audition appointment, then send your headshot and resume to casting02@chancetheater.com by June 27.

 

Location: Chance Theater, 5522 E. La Palma Ave., Anaheim, CA 92807. Click here for directions.

Synopsis: A man attempts to reunite with family he never knew. Little does the man suspect that this experience will test the man’s endurance, his love, and, most potently, his faith. At once darkly comic and deeply moving, this Obie Award winning play takes a sardonic yet empathetic tone as it delves into conviction, redemption, and the opening of minds in the Midwest.

 

Character Breakdown: 

Pauline:
Late 30’s to early 50’s. A no-nonsense manager of the Hobby Lobby store that Will encroaches upon. She is direct, fast-paced and trying to hang onto a store that is crumbling.

[ Audition Side ]

Leroy:
Early to mid 20’s. A salesman in the art supply section and a self-professed shock artist. He is fiercely protective of Alex, and fiercely suspicious of authority, religion and Will.

[ Audition Side ]

Alex:
17-23. The actor must look like he is a high school senior. Will’s estranged son, and the best cashier at the Hobby Lobby. He is sensitive yet hardened by life, fragile but tough. He yearns to make music, but wonders if he will be trapped in Boise forever.

[ Audition Side ]

Voices:
One female, one male; 30’s to 50’s. Two reps who read dull copy from the Hobby Lobby corporate office. These voices start to invade Will’s mind. Think televangelism meets Home Shopping Network meets the end of the world.

[ Audition Side ]
