Seeking:FLYIN’ WEST All characters are African-American. Frank and Sophie have a lighter skin color than the other characters. Seeking: Miss Leah, 73, has the life experience, the pain, the passion the forgiveness and vengeance that has kept her alive her many tough years. Simple, honest, abrupt, deliberate. Fannie, 32, level-headed, unmarried wants to care for family but also would like love and companionship. Tentatively, but willingly, steps into a relationship with Wil. Sophie, 36, no nonsense, tough spirit that tries to hide tenderness and feminine expression, can do physical labor as well as any man, not actually bloodline of Fannie and Minnie. Minnie, 21, lives abroad with her physically and emotionally abusive husband, Frank. She's never really experienced a harsh frontier life but sympathizes with her family's hardships and misses them terribly. Frank, 32, could pass for white and often has. Domineering, abusive, elitist, feels like he's owed something because he's better than blacks. Very bitter. Wil, 40, a man of principle, trustworthy, uncomplicated, spirited, wants the companionship of a smart, secure woman. If he's lucky, that woman would be Fannie. Should play harmonica, banjo or 'sticks.' _______________ A FLEA IN HER EAR All roles have been CAST  _______________ THE UNDERSTUDY We strongly encourage actors of all cultural backgrounds. Seeking: Harry (male – late 30s, early 40s): A gifted actor with average looks but exceptional talent, he has fallen far short of the career he hoped for. His bitterness about other actors’ successes and the sizable chip on his shoulder are two of his most prominent characteristics. But he is also extremely charming when he wants to be, intelligent, passionate about the theatre, and has the soul of an artist. He also has a fear of commitment, having left Roxanne at the altar years earlier. Jake (male – 30s): A B-list Hollywood action star longing for artistic respect. He has genuine talent, taste, charm, and intelligence, but will always be underestimated because of his drop-dead handsome, leading man looks. He is unashamed of his career choices thus far, but is growing tired of not being taken seriously as an actor. Roxanne (female – late 30s, early 40s): The stage manager for this rehearsal, and a former actress, she prides herself on being put together and running a tight ship, but finds herself frustratingly rattled by the unexpected reappearance of Harry, her former fiance?e, after six years of silence. She does her best to keep control of a rehearsal that seems increasingly derailed by the inscrutable whims of the universe, but eventually she starts to crack under pressure, which is a source of much of the play’s comic energy. _________________ MAN OF LA MANCHA We strongly encourage actors of all cultural backgrounds. Roles will be doubled for a total cast of 12. Sancho Panza (also Cervantes’ Manservant) Miguel de Cervantes ! (also Don Quixote and Alonso Quijana) Governor The Duke Seven Muleteers: Jose Tenorio Paco Juan Anselmo Pedro Aldonza (also Dulcinea) Innkeeper Maria (Innkeeper’s Wife) Fermina (a Serving Girl) Antonia (Alonso’s niece) Housekeeper (for Alonso) Padre Dr. Sanso?n Carrasco (also Antonia’s Fiance? and Knight of the Mirrors) Barber ______________________ THOUSAND PINES We strongly encourage actors of all cultural backgrounds.

THE KANES – Warren Kane’s son Grayson (Sophie’s stepson) was killed in the shooting. Sophie Paulson-Kane (played by Actor 1): A matriarch with sharp nails and dyed hair. A bit of a steamroller, ferociously pursuing a lawsuit against the school district in the absence of any other closure in her stepson’s murder. Oliver Paulson (played by Actor 2): Sophie’s ex-husband. A lawyer, representing Sophie in the lawsuit. A mild workaholic. Businesslike but sincere. Warren Kane (played by Actor 4): Sophie’s new husband. Tense and angrier than he lets on. Resents the intrusion of Oliver and the lawsuit into their lives. Gretchen Paulson (played by Actor 5): Oliver and Sophie’s daughter. Confident and spirited, with some of her mother’s fierceness. Protective of those she cares about. Debbie Carter (played by Actor 3): A teacher and the primary witness in the lawsuit against the school district. Mousy and agreeable. Searching for a way to ease the guilt and isolation she feels in the shooting’s aftermath. THE GARRISONS – Rita Garrison’s son Tyler was killed in the shooting. Rita Garrison (played by Actor 1): A single mom. Rough around the edges but has always done her best for her family. Torn between lingering in memories and facing her fear of moving forward in her new reality. Kyle Garrison (played by Actor 4): Rita’s younger brother. Sullen and angry. Isolated in his anger and unsure of how to be there for Rita given the troubled history between them. Frank Atkins (played by Actor 2): A police officer. Used to be romantically involved with Rita. Concerned for Rita but wary of falling back into a relationship that has run its course. Evelyn Smoot (played by Actor 3): Rita’s neighbor and a Thousand Pines mom. Bit of an interfering busybody. Tori Metro (played by Actor 5): A reserved and thoughtful young woman. Her overtures to Rita are borne out of genuine concern.
