SHOW DATES: 
June 29th 30th and July 1, 5, 6, 7 Saturday’s are two show days, Sunday evening performance

REHEARSAL SCHEDULE: 
Everyone wants to know what the rehearsal schedule will be, but it’s impossible to make a schedule without knowing everyone’s conflicts. The goal is to have fewer rehearsals for large blocks of time, not lots of rehearsals for small blocks of time. NO ONE WILL BE CALLED UNLESS THEY ARE ACTIVELY USED DURING REHEARSALS UNTIL TECH WEEK.

EVERYONE WILL BE ASKED FOR ALL CONFLICT DATES FROM APRIL 16, 2018 THROUGH JULY 8, 2018.

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS:
Female-identified (and non-binary) actors to perform in Parallel Lives by Mo Gaffney and Kathy Najimy. This is a stage version of the popular Kathy and Mo Show. Nontraditional/integrated casting policies will be in place. All ethnicities encouraged to audition. 

Applicants should possess strong comedic acting skills as well as the ability to transform character quickly. Both actors will play men, women and children. Dialect work a must. Although the piece is comprised of sketches they are not without substance, both satirical and dramatic. An emphasis on sincere performances that draw out the comedy and pathos is placed at a premium.

Actor 1 – Female, mid 20s to mid 50s, all ethnicities. Plays: Being One, Kris, Madeline, Holly, Hank, “Kathy”, and others
Actor 2 – Female, mid 20s to mid 50s, all ethnicities. Plays: Being Two, Jeff, Sylvia, Molly, Karen Sue, “Mo”, and others
