Casting a total of 11 actors. One understudy to ‘swing’ 2 roles.

Casting Breakdown;

Andrew Rally- male. Minor TV Star, getting ready to play Hamlet at New York Shakespeare in the Park.

Felicia Dantine- female. Andrew’s real estate agent and a psychic medium. ** Will require New York/Brooklyn accent.

Deirdre McDavey- female. Ingenue role. Very sweet and very much in love with Andrew.

Lillian Troy-  female. Andrew’s talent agent. Older. Sophisticated. **Will require a German accent.

Gary Peter Lefkowitz- male. Andrew’s business agent. Very slick, very L.A.

John Barrymore- Ghost. Male. The ghost of one of the greatest public figures of the early 20th century and part of an Acting Dynasty that included his father, brother, mother and sister. (Grandfather of Drew Barrymore.) Please see any of his films for an idea of what he was like. I recommend viewing “On the 20th Century” or “Grand Hotel”. ** Will require vocal work to sound like him.

Audition Requirements;

You will be asked to fill out an audition card, this audition card will ask you for any and all conflicts with the projected rehearsal schedule. Please list any and all conflicts with a four week rehearsal schedule that will include only one day off a week during rehearsals. This means ANY AND ALL conflicts.  Please include in the conflicts section if you are not willing to be cast in the show. Please note the section that asks if you are willing to be cast in a small role or a non- speaking role. Please be aware that if you are cast as an understudy you will be expected to be at any and all rehearsals. Please be aware that the stage combat in the show may require additional rehearsals for the Andrew and John Barrymore roles.
