Seeking:“A Streetcar Named Desire”  Blanche Dubois: Female, late 20s – late 30s; Refined, complicated, delicate, she has beautiful manners, a love of the arts and all thing beautiful and elevated. A fading southern belle, she ended up back on the crumbling family plantation after a disastrous early marriage and became a schoolteacher. After the last relative died, she lost the family estate and was left completely impoverished and alone. She prefers magic and illusion to the reality of her life, has a hazy relationship with the truth and often disappears into flights of fancy. She has lived a relentlessly hard life, filled with loss and pain, and she’s starting to crack. She has arrived on her sister Stella’s doorstep in a very downscale part of New Orleans, penniless, after being chased out of her last teaching job for seducing a student. This is her last chance at happiness and she is determined to find it. Stanley Kowalski: Male, late 20’s-late 30s; working class, charismatic. Crude, highly sexual and loves the basic pleasures of life, including bowling and poker with his friends. He is earthbound, coarse and ill mannered at times. Unpredictable, he is prone to random fits of temper and violence. Ambitious and driven, he has worked his way up from assembly line worker to selling auto parts. He is fiercely in love with Stella, highly irritated but also fascinated by Blanche, who is his complete opposite in many ways, but not all. He has no patience with her games and her spinning of the truth, and ends up raping her. Stella Kowalski: Female, late 20s-late 30s; Blanche’s attractive younger sister, born into the same fading aristocratic southern family but she escaped into the arms of Stanley. Although he is not her social equal, she is madly in love with him and they have a strong physical connection. She is pregnant with their first child. She is grounded; much sturdier, more adaptable, and more down to earth than her older sister. She looks up to her beautiful older sister Blanche, and feels guilty about leaving her behind to care for their family and property. Harold “Mitch” Mitchell: Male, 30s-early 40s; Solid, working class, Stanley’s poker buddy. He is kind, if a bit thick and rough around the edges, and has an essentially gentle spirit. He falls in love with Blanche. He is very tied to his dying mother, who would like him to settle down with a woman before she dies. He is salt of the earth, loyal and would be a good provider. Blanche sets her cap for him, but when Stanley informs him of her less than pure past, he rejects her. Eunice Hubbell: Female, 30s-40s; Blanche’s landlady and friend, knowing, earthy, tough, she keeps the place running and Tillie Berg/Molly Goldberg – Female, 50-65; Jewish character, plays the lead on the show, Molly Goldberg, as well as Tillie, the actress portraying Molly. Tillie created the enormously popular show and writes each script, including the cleverly interwoven advertising for various product sponsors. She is a pioneering powerhouse, no doubt battling both sexism and antisemitism to get where she is. She is smart, funny scrappy and has lots of integrity. She doesn’t like secrets and is honorable and above board, unlike the executives she deals with. When told she must fire cast member Philip Loeb for being a communist, she initially refuses, ends up doing it and loses her show anyway. The suits consider the show too ethnic “Jewish” and old-fashioned. Precast Phil Loeb/Jake Goldberg: Male, 50-65; Jewish character, plays Molly’s husband, Jake Goldberg on the show, as well as the actor playing Jake, Phil Loeb. Warm, funny, always joking and laughing with the rest of the cast; sweet, gentle—he is a mensch. Phil is accused of being a communist sympathizer by a sponsor, and is ordered to be fired. Phil is the sole support of his mentally ill son, as well, and the eventual loss of his job leads to tragic consequences. Fannie Merrill/“Mrs. Kramer”: Female, 50-60; Plays Mrs. Kramer, the nosy neighbor on the show, as well as the actress playing her, Fannie Merrill. Fannie looks up to Tillie, and is very loyal and appreciative of her job. Smart, savvy and level-headed, she functions as a trusted adviser to Tillie, and in addition to acting, is heavily involved in all aspects of producing The Goldbergs. Eli/“Uncle David”/NBC executive/Cardinal Spellman: Male, 40s 50s; Plays Uncle David on the show, as well as the actor playing him, Eli. Eli is high energy; quick, kind of a smartass, and loves to tell stories. Also plays the shrewd, opportunistic Cardinal Spellman, so should have some gravitas and a weasel-ish television executive who rejects the Goldbergs. Walter Hart/Roger Addington/Frank Stanton/Cutlery Sponsor/Diner Owner: Male, 30s-50s; Plays several hard charging Corporate sponsors of the Goldbergs, who all bail on the show, due to Phil Loeb’ s supposed communist ties, as well as Walter, the show’s frazzled but devoted director and a friendly mid-western the diner owner who waits on Tillie after she end up in a touring production of The Matchmaker. _________________________ "Skylight" Actors should prepare an English accent for the audition. Kyra Hollis – Female, 25-35; Raised in affluence and well educated, she has escaped that life to be a schoolteacher in a London slum, possibly as penance for deeply held guilt or possibly as a way of discovering her own identity; now more confident, calm and centered than ever before, her new sense of self is about to be put to the test. Tom Sergeant (Precast): Male, 45-55; A self-made highly successful restaurant entrepreneur; charismatic, funny, aggressive, physical, commands a room, a man’s man that is used to getting his way; he believes he is fully responsible for his success and in control of his own fate (and sometimes of those around him).  Edward Sergeant – Male, (actor 18+ to play) 18; Tom’s son, he’s a young man in search of his own identity and a path of his own; a mixture of Kyra’s and Tom’s personalities, he’s desperate to make sense of the world while not asking for help; his dialect is more that of Kyra’s, but has the flourishes of Tom’s. ______________________ "The Light in the Piazza - Musical" Many of the lyrics are in Italian or broken English as many of the characters are fluent only in Italian. Margaret Johnson: Female, 40s-50s; An elegant, self-possessed, practical, and proper Southern woman; contained and controlled yet warm and appealing with a dry, self-deprecating sense of humor and a deeply romantic and secret yearning underneath; keeps her heart in a box; Southern accent; vulnerable actor with a strong legit soprano voice, G below middle C up to G#5. Clara Johnson: Female, 26; Margaret’s daughter; an impulsive, naïve, romantic, keenly curious, highly sensitive, and easily provoked Southern girl who seems younger than her age due to a developmental disability; classic American beauty; wears her heart on her sleeve; Southern accent; spontaneous actor with a strong legit soprano and belt/mix voice, A3 to high A5. Roy Johnson: Male, 40s-50s; Margaret’s husband; a contained, controlled, efficient, practical, proper, and impatiently abrupt though not unkind Southern gentleman; emotionally unavailable and cool; has a tight heart and a tight smile; Southern accent; austere actor with a strong legit baritone voice; also doubles as Ensemble.

Giuseppe Naccarelli: Male, 20s-30s; The Naccarelli’s eldest son; a handsome, charming, impetuous, hen-pecked Italian playboy; not the brightest bulb; desperately trying to hold onto his youth while still being the adult he’s expected to be; must be a strong mover who is able to speak fluent Italian with an authentic Italian dialect; enterprising actor with good comic timing and a strong legit baritone voice to G5. Franca Naccarelli: Female, 20s-30s; Giuseppe’s wife; a woman scorned; fiery, passionate, strongwilled, sexy, and unabashedly direct Italian woman with a deeply caring and romantic streak; must be able to speak fluent Italian with an authentic Italian dialect; fervent actor with a strong legit soprano voice to F6. Ensemble: 30s-50s; Various types to play tourists and citizens of Florence; versatile ensemble actors with strong legit voices. _____________________ "Lobby Hero" Jeff: Male, 20's; A uniformed security guard in a Manhattan high rise. A glib, talkative, wisecracking slacker hoping to get his life together despite his history of underachievement and lack of real drive or ambition. His goals are modest, get his own apartment, find a girlfriend, and he is somewhat shy and quirky. He has a big crush on Dawn, and to impress her, inadvertently betrays the trust of his mentor William. William: Male, late 20’s-30s; African American. Jeff's uniformed supervisor. A hard working, ambitious, upstanding man with a strong moral code, he values discipline and self-improvement and is wound a bit tight. He considers the wayward Jeff a “project”, and takes him under his wing. His moral compass is tested when his brother asks him to be his alibi for a heinous crime that his brother may or may not have committed. Dawn: Female, 20's; Bill's working class, attractive, rookie partner trying to navigate her way on a male dominated force. Tough, enthusiastic, but green and still making her bones, she has already gotten herself in trouble for using way too much force on her first collar.

Bill: Male, 30s; A uniformed policeman. A cocky, self-assured and smoothly superior veteran, he makes his own rules and is a dominant, charismatic personality.
