"A Southern Exposure" by Kelley Kingston-Strayer
Directed by Brandi Kilgore

“A Southern Exposure” is a comedy-drama set in a small town in 1990s Kentucky. It is the story of Callie Belle Hurt whose idea of love is so unrealistic it could be lifted from the pages of a romance novel. Raised by Hattie, her sassy, Bible-thumping grandmother with a cast-iron will and her two eccentric aunts, Ida Mae and Mattie, Callie Belle stuns her family when she announces that she has fallen in love and is moving to New York to live with her boyfriend, a young man she only recently met.

Show Dates: July 19, 20, 21, 22, 26, 27, 28, 29

Non-equity

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Appointments are not necessary. Please bring a recent photo; a professional headshot is not required. Also, be prepared to list ALL CONFLICTS for months of May, June and July 2018

Special Notice for interested actors:

This production of “A Southern Exposure” will be remounted at the Cumming Playhouse twice in 2019 due to a special arrangement with the City of Cumming, GA and playwright Kelley Kingston-Strayer. There will be two runs, in May 2019 and October/November 2019.

If possible, please be prepared to list any potential conflicts that you are aware of for April and May 2019 and Late-September through early-November 2019. The cast will meet periodically after we close at Lionheart to stay fresh on lines and characterization, in addition to having brief rehearsal periods before each show run in 2019. Actors who are cast will be paid for the performances in 2019 only.

Character Descriptions:

The roles of Hattie, Ida Mae and Mattie can be played by younger actresses (40 and up preferred) provided they are able to convincingly “age up” in both appearance and body movement.

CALLIE BELLE: (Early 20s) Selfish and self-absorbed, she still has a clear sense of right and wrong. Granddaughter of Hattie.

HATTIE: (Mid 70s) Callie Belle’s grandmother. A hard life and rigid moral code have left her opinionated and un-yielding. However, her deep capacity for love is evident by her tender care for others. Will consider actresses ages 40+ if they can “age up.”

IDA MAE: (Early 70’s) Ida Mae has a no-nonsense personality with a meat and potatoes outlook on life. Hattie’s sister. Will consider actresses ages 40+ if they can “age up.”

MATTIE: (Late 70s) The oldest sibling of Hattie and Ida Mae, she suffers from dementia. However, like most dementia patients she has flashes of insight and is more cognizant of her surroundings than her family realizes. Will consider actresses ages 40+ if they can “age up.”
