Actors Theatre is working to create and maintain an environment of mutual trust where people are treated with dignity and respect. We seek an environment that is absent of intimidation, oppression and harassment and upholds our Core Values of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, Brave Curiosity, Listening and Sharing, and Adaptability. With our Anti-Harassment Policy, Actors Theatre will prevent and correct inappropriate behavior and we ask all involved to uphold these and join us in this work.
***In reference to the information below – these are descriptions of the characters as identified in the script and in collaboration with the creative team. They are not meant to be exhaustive of who should play these roles and we seek to cast as expansively and authentically as possible. We are committed to the most inclusive representation of race/ethnicity, gender, body type, and ability on our stages. As an ADA compliant theatre, we welcome performers of all abilities and will make all reasonable accommodations in order to cast performers, regardless of disability, in any role possible. Please submit any accommodation request either in the note section of your breakdown submission, or by emailing the casting director at [email protected] . We also recognize that most characters are written on the binary (use he/him or she/her pronouns) and we invite gender non-conforming, genderqueer, transgender, and non-binary actors to submit for the roles they most identify with. We list race/ethnicity when specific to the character but are otherwise seeking all races and ethnicities. Please let us know if you have any questions, concerns, or if there are any accommodations we can provide to make your audition experience positive.
There is a NYC Workshop scheduled for January 7-9, 2020 during daytime hours. Actors unavailable for the workshop will still be considered for the production (if NA for the workshop, please note that in your submission.)
NOTE: The roles of Nicole Clark & Amy Renna are cast.
Robert Arnold (30s-40s, He/Him/His, Black) Nicole’s Partner. He’s dorky/goofy, but slyly sexy. He’s sweet and patient, but he’s not afraid (mostly) to put his foot down when needed. For a straight dude, he’s pretty emotionally aware, especially in regards to Nicole. I honestly cannot WAIT for his Dad jokes, they’ll be great in a few years.
Helen Clark (late 50s-60s, She/Her/Hers, White) Nicole’s Mother. Formerly fat, now proudly/ obsessively not fat. A diva, a drama queen, a proud member of the “I’m not being mean, I’m being honest” club. To say she is difficult would be to negate all the complicated reasons why baby boomer women are difficult (limited career options, mandatory motherhood), but I will say she is DIFFICULT. She’s probably really angry, but she’s suppressed it so long that it’s only a passive aggressive lack of self-awareness now. She DOES love, fiercely, in fact, but you have to constantly remind yourself of that because it is extremely hard to remember that because she is truly not nice. That doesn’t mean she’s a bad person. But she is not nice. Tells it like it is. Very particular. Likely irons her napkins.
For consideration, mail hard copy of photo/resume asap. Indicate AEA status in your submission.
