BREAKDOWN
Theater for Families/Educational Outreach Production - Special Appearance (2) $383 per week, no health

WHEN SHE HAD WINGS
by Suzan Zeder
directed by Matt Stabile - Heckscher Theatre for Families Production
First Rehearsal: 8/13, Open 9/6, Run 9/6-9/29
IA story told in sound, movement and words about 9-year-old B. B knows, really knows, that before she could walk, she could fly. She is desperate to remember how before the dreaded birthday comes. In a summer thunderstorm, B's treehouse is hit by lightning, and a mysterious stranger appears. She cannot speak except in strange squawks, single words and occasionally the letters "KHAQQ" … the call letters of the plane Amelia Earhart was flying when she disappeared and was never found. Together they must help each other remember how to fly … literally and metaphorically.
B: Female, 9 years old, build like a fireplug, definitely not designed for flight, she longs to escape…into the air – Actor will be 18+ playing a 9-year old, please no submissions from child actors

A: Female, ageless, not quite human, not quite avian. Language left when her mind separated from memory. Seeking performers ages 40+ who are adept at movement and dance

SOUND OP: Any, creates feeling of flight through live and recorded sound. Adept at movement. Experience as Foley Artist is a plus

WINGMAN: Any, creates visual manifestations of flying out of found objects, puppets and illusions. Adept at movement and mime

DAD/ATTENDANT/MAN: Male, plays B’s dad, an attendant at a nearby nursing facility, and a mysterious figure.

MAINSTAGE SEASON: Equity (Guest Artist Tier 2) and Non-Equity ($450 per week)
EVERYTHING IS SUPER GREAT
by Stephen Brown, A co-World Premiere
Dir. Matt Stabile
First rehearsal: 11/6/19; Preview: 11/29/19; Run: 11/30/19-12/22/19

A typical day in the life of 19-year-old Tommy involves triple shot lattes, yearning after his assistant manager at Starbucks, and arson at Applebee’s. Such distractions are therapeutic when your older brother has been missing for months, but when a well meaning, if somewhat misguided, therapist shows up on his doorstep, Tommy must finally face his loss.

The following roles have been cast. Actors will be considered as a possible replacement or understudy for:

TOMMY: Male, 19 years old, looking for direction, loves Star Wars

ANNE: Female, 40’s, Tommy’s mother, sweet, spacey, a little immature, caring

DAVE: Male, mid 30’s, a doormat, spineless, a little bro-ey, hopeful

ALICE: Female, 21, dead-pan, the most exhausted and overworked person. Ever.

TO FALL IN LOVE
by Jennifer Lane, directed by Louis Tyrrell - A Southeastern Premiere

Scientists claim that anyone can fall in love, simply by asking and honestly answering a specific series of 36 personal questions followed by four minutes of uninterrupted eye contact. But what if the goal is to fall in love AGAIN? Can this exercise help Wyatt and Merryn save a marriage, splintered by tragedy?

The following roles have been cast. Actors will be considered as a possible replacement or understudy for:

WYATT GRIMES: Male, 30’s, any ethnicity

MERRYN THOMAS: Female, 30’s, any ethnicity
