YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU
[PENNY SYCAMORE] Late 40’s – Late 50’s. Gentle and placid nature. Has the comfortable, homey look of a loving, jovial mother. Has a bit of a dreamlike, fanciful quality to her, but also possesses the capability for great passion.
[RHEBA] Late 20’s – Late 30’s. African-American. No-nonsense, direct. Has a sense of youth, sweetness, and happiness, but her personal qualities are somewhat masked by her professional demeanor.
The roles of Paul Sycamore, Head Justice Man, Mr. Kirby, Olga, Martin Vanderhoff, Mrs. Kirby, and Boris Kolenkhov have been cast.

THE HEIDI CHRONICLES
[SUSAN] Early 30’s – Mid 40’s. Warm and approachable, yet firm. Must transition from youthful high school student to feminist crusader, to sharp businesswoman without ever losing her sense of friendliness and fun. Must have the ability to believably play both below and above her actual age.
[PETER] Early 30’s – Late 40’s. Overtly social and terribly clever and droll, but gives the sense that this behavior may mask an inner secret. Also has contrasting moments of being taciturn and reserved. Hiding a wellspring of sadness and bitterness. Must have the ability to believably play both below and above his actual age.
[HEIDI] Early 30’s – Late 40’s. Lovely yet not necessarily traditionally pretty. Has a somewhat lost/searching quality about her. An inner strength, poise, and calm underneath it all. Open and earnest. Must have the ability to believably play both below and above her actual age.
[SCOOP] Early 30’s – Late 40’s. Fast-talker and a bit of a slick dealer. Thinks he’s the sharpest guy in the room and flaunts it. A bit of a wheeler-dealer. Handsome and he knows it. Must have the ability to believably play both below and above his actual age.

CLYBOURNE PARK
[BEV] Mid 40’s – Early 50’s. A once handsome woman who is just starting to be past her peak. Not quite matronly, but definitely comfortable with being the leader in her family. Able to hold it together when everyone around her is going to pieces. Strong, resilient. SAME ACTRESS ALSO PLAYS KATHY – many of the same qualities with an added veneer of being a professional businesswoman and skilled at resolving conflicts.
[FRANCINE] Late 20’s – Late 30’s. African-American. No-nonsense, direct. Pleasant and warm, but her personal qualities are somewhat masked by her professional demeanor. SAME ACTRESS ALSO PLAYS LENA – with the added qualities of steely determination and passionate conviction. Independent, speaks her own mind.
[KARL] Early 30’s – Early 40’s. Walks the line between middle-class friendly All-American neighbor and slightly oily/unctuous and smarmy. Believes firmly in his mission even if no one else around him agrees. Stubborn. SAME ACTOR ALSO PLAYS STEVE – Who balances similar personality traits, but his edges have been softened a bit. His boorish qualities are not quite so overt.
The role of Russ/Dan has been cast.

THE GAME'S AFOOT
[WILLIAM GILLETTE] Late 30’s – Late 40’s. Strikingly handsome, a smart-dresser, good-humored. Full of vim and vigor. Elegant and clever. You get the sense his mind works faster than everyone else around him. Incredibly charming.
[MARTHA GILLETTE] Late 50’s – Late 60’s. Somewhat vague and prone to dithering, a bit absentminded. Very sweet and loveable, yet a bit dotty. Maternal type. Stronger than she looks.
[SIMON BRIGHT] Late 20’s – Mid 30’s. At first blush, sweet and charming, open and earnest. Seems to be a naïve, innocent sort of person, but is capable of deviousness and deceit. One of those people you instinctively like and gravitate towards.
[DARIA CHASE] Late 30’s – Early 50’s. Glamorous, gorgeous, captivating. The type that always dresses to the nines and knows how to effortlessly command power. Chic and catty, you love to hate her. An incredibly sharp/acerbic sense of humor.
The roles of Felix Geisel, Madge Geisel, and Inspector Goring have been cast
