Thomas, a playwright and director, struggling to cast the perfect actress is shocked when a girl who seems all wrong turns out to be just the women he needs.

Seeking:
Male: Thomas Novachek, 30s, Highly intelligent, articulate, attractive and arrogant. A talented writer and director, Thomas is charming but without the depth that comes from tragedy and empathy. Has got to be comfortable exploring sexuality and sexual role play.

Female: Vanda Jordan: 20s-30s, seductive actress with a secret. Highly charged and sexual, bordering on erotic. Comfortable in her body. Crass and brilliant. A chameleon. Bronx to high status English accent. Must be at ease with sexuality, changing sexual roles. Brave.

Five ethnically diverse actors bring Victorian London to life in this new retelling of the Dickens’ classic by the author of The 39 Steps. Funny and heartfelt, actors play all the Dickens characters, make the sound effects and create inanimate objects like ticking clocks and crackling fires. Not a musical, but all actors have to be able to sing (for carolers). Seeking actors who play instruments: guitar, trumpet, tuba/French horn, clarinet, flute, etc. All actors need to be physically agile and possess a command of a variety of accents.

THE GOD GAME
By Suzanne Bradbeer
Directed by: Kristin Coury
Rolling world premiere at Gulfshore Playhouse, Naples, FL in Jan and Capital Rep in May
1st rehearsal for first run: 12/27; Runs: 1/16-2/09
1st rehearsal for second run: 4/15; Runs: 5/2-5/25

Actors must be available for both runs.

Tom, a respected moderate Republican Senator, is approached to be the Vice Presidential running mate for the Republican right-wing Christian Presidential candidate. Trouble is, Tom isn’t a believer and thinks religion and politics should never mix. Tom finds himself caught in a moral tug of war between, Matt, his friend and the campaign’s representative and his devout wife, Lisa, who insists that he must stay true to himself or risk losing their marriage.

Seeking:
Male, Tom, 45. Charismatic, Annapolis grad and war vet, reasonable, smart and politically astute. Attractive and we can imagine that he will be President one day. Caring, paternal but sexy. Still shaken by the death of his younger, gay brother the year before. In many ways, the perfect candidate. Romney with soul.

Male, Matt, 40. Smart, savvy campaign representative for right-wing Republican Presidential candidate. He’s a witty, diplomatic, attractive, successful, closeted gay man, who loved Tom’s brother but loved politics more. He hasn’t taken time to reflect on his isolation from his inner self, until now.

Female: Lisa, 40. Attractive, winning, sexy, a professional political wife. She loves and is in love with her husband. Devout Christian with a great heart who suffers no fools. Recognizes manipulative behavior instantly – a veteran of the campaign trail. Not afraid to speak her mind in private, but knows how the political game is played. Places high value on telling the truth.


===
In addition to these plays, Capital Rep will be seeking actors to participate in NEXT ACT, a three-day play summit dedicated to new work. Next Act takes place November 2, 3, and 4. The summit will include readings of 2 plays and 1 musical. Titles will be announced right after Labor Day.
