Character Descriptions:

The Morgan-Wixson Theatre is a volunteer organization which welcomes people from all walks of life. If specific to the character, we have listed race, ethnicity, sex, age, identity, and disability with character names below. Otherwise, we are seeking and we encourage actors of all races (Arab, Asian, Black, Caucasian, Latino, Native, and Multiracial), sex, age, sexual orientation, identities, and abilities to audition for all roles. The age ranges that are listed are suggested guidelines.

Peter Austin, Male 40-49: the excitable author of a new play, "The Golden Egg;" the type who sincerely believes that ''you can write a serious play for Broadway and still have a place in the Hamptons.'' 

Ethnicity: All Ethnicities


Julia Budder, Female 50-59: the extremely wealthy, neophyte producer of the play; enthusiastic and passionate devotee of ''the theatre," charmingly dotty and benevolent dilettante, not the most self-aware woman in the world, such as when explaining the concept of ''breaking a leg'' to a roomful of seasoned theatre people. 

Ethnicity: All Ethnicities


James Wicker, Male 40-49: a witty, sarcastic, middling sitcom star; has been best friends with Peter since their off-off Broadway days, egotistical but insecure, turned down the lead in "The Golden Egg" to remain on his (just cancelled) television series, secretly thrilled with the terrible reviews the play receives.

Ethnicity: All Ethnicities


Virginia Noyes, Female, 50-59: the pill-popping, Tony-winning leading lady of the play; trying to resurrect her career by returning to Broadway after a series of movie flops and more than a few cocaine hits. 

Ethnicity: All Ethnicities


Frank Finger, Male 25-29: the angst-ridden, boy-wonder/enfant terrible, British-by-way-of New Jersey director of "The Golden Egg;" a self-deprecating almost to the point of self-loathing sort who, after a string of 14 theatrical successes, longs for the flop that will reveal him to be the poseur he claims he actually is, prone to bouts of histrionics and kleptomania.

Ethnicity: All Ethnicities


Ira Drew, Male, 50-59: fawning, sycophantic, two-faced drama critic who is a closet playwright, skewers the theatre world he desperately wants to be a part of. 

Ethnicity: All Ethnicities


Gus P. Head, Male 20-29: actor/waiter hired to work the party; just off the bus from Kansas, wide-eyed and naïve, star-struck and impressionable, extremely enthusiastic. 

Ethnicity: All Ethnicities
