Non-Union Audition

The place is a communal residence in a New England city, where four mentally handicapped men live under the supervision of an earnest, but increasingly "burned out" young social worker named Jack. Norman, who works in a doughnut shop and is unable to resist the lure of the sweet pastries, takes great pride in the huge bundle of keys that dangles from his waist; Lucien P. Smith has the mind of a five-year-old but imagines that he is able to read and comprehend the weighty books he lugs about; Arnold, the ringleader of the group, is a hyperactive, compulsive chatterer, who suffers from deep-seated insecurities and a persecution complex; while Barry, a brilliant schizophrenic who is devastated by the unfeeling rejection of his brutal father, fantasizes that he is a golf pro. Mingled with scenes from the daily lives of these four, where \"little things\" sometimes become momentous (and often very funny), are moments of great poignancy when, with touching effectiveness, we are reminded that the handicapped, like the rest of us, want only to love and laugh and find some meaning and purpose in the brief time that they, like their more fortunate brothers, are allotted on this earth.
Cast: Seven men, two women.
First Round auditions will consist of a 1 - 1 1/2 minute prepared monologue a prepared reading from the script.
Questions email Director Jim Dailey at
jimdailey.actor@gmail.com.
Readings posted online at www.act1theater.com.
ACT1 Theater is located at 180 Academy Street, Alpharetta, GA 30009
ACT1 Theater is a non-equity, all-volunteer, no participation fee community theater.
