DESCRIPTION

The Greenhouse Ensemble is casting for our seventh Ten Minute Play Soirée! This year we have 4 performances, March 15, March 16 (2) and March 24 in Manhattan. This is a great event, with over 30 artists involved with the intent to create a strong artistic community.

There are several roles available. If you are interested in auditioning, please send your headshot and resume to [email protected].

Seeking:

23 & Me & Them

Father- mid 50s- late 60s. Stubborn, clings to Irish identity. Must be good with fast paced comedy

Mother- mid 50s- late 60s. Has a Stepford Wife quality- very agreeable with husband, mostly in the kitchen cooking

Son and daughter- (these can be interchangeable as any gender) 30s, smart, quick witted, playful, must be good with fast paced comedy

The Elephant

Jenn, 20s-40s - a new mom of a three month old -need we say more? - okay - kind, loving, happy - also exhausted, anxious, stressed. Able to tap into a wide range of emotion in a very short amount of time. Actress should be comfortable with the action of "breast pumping" on stage - modestly or openly (Note from playwright: This can be done modestly...Or SHE can totally go for it! Breastfeeding is a beautiful and natural thing.Pumping is god-awful and more people should understand that visually.)

Skylar, 20-40s, any gender - a bubbling fountain of energy, dressed to the nines to go out. The kind of person who lives to pre-game as much as they live to party. Never going to have kids. Equally compelled and weirded out by the site of a woman breast feeding. Strong comedy skills.

Regis County Invitational Track Meet

Louiza - 18+ to play 12 years old. Louiza has broken her foot and is watching the track meet she was supposed to run, one week after surviving a car accident that took her mother's life. She and her friend Dani had a recent falling out since the accident. She is suspicious as to why Dani is sitting with her at the meet as the pain of a friend's betrayal only compounds the pain of losing her mother.

Dani - 18+ to play 12 years old. Louiza's friend who sits with her during the track meet. She can be gossipy and gruff. They had a recent falling out this past week, following the death of Louiza's mother. She awkwardly seeks Louiza's forgiveness.

The Translator

Marisol - She/her. 30’s-40’s. Latina. Warm exterior, feisty interior. She is first-generation American and is a self-starter who carries herself with confidence and a relaxed intelligence.

Daniel - He/him. 40’s. Mixed race of Latino heritage. Tough guy exterior, gentle interior. He has taken an extreme beating from life in a very short period of time.


Forbidden Love

WILLIAM -- Male Squirrel, early 20’s. Looking for actor great with physical comedy and comfortable with Elizabethan English.

EDWARD -- Male squirrel, early 20’s and William’s best friend. Looking for actor great with physical comedy comfortable with Elizabethan English.
