- Tacoma Little Theatre is holding auditions for its fall production of Bell, Book and Candle, directed by Brett Carr.
Auditions will be held Sunday, August 12th and Monday, August 13th at Tacoma Little Theatre. Audition appointments will be set between the times of 6:00pm-9:00pm on Sunday and 7:00pm-10:00pm on Monday. Callbacks will be held on Wednesday, August 15th.
Gillian Holroyd is one of the few modern people who can actually cast spells and perform feats of supernaturalism. She casts a spell over an unattached publisher, Shepherd Henderson, partly to keep him away from a rival and partly because she is attracted to him. He falls head over heels in love with her at once and wants to marry her. But witches, unfortunately, cannot fall in love, and this minute imperfection leads into a number of difficulties before they find out if they can live happily ever after.
Character Breakdown / Project Needs
2 WOMEN/3 MEN
ACTORS OF ALL ETHNICITIES ARE ENCOURAGED TO AUDITION.
Gillian Holroyd (late 20's-early 40's) Intelligent, sophisticated woman who is also a practicing witch. She is the landlord of a Murray Hill brownstone where she, her Aunt Queenie, and Shep Henderson live. Gillian experiences a major personality transformation during the play.
Shep Henderson (early 30's-early 40's) A gentleman, a successful NY publisher, a hard-working man who is ready to get on with the next phase of a “successful” life…marriage. Despite being under a powerful love spell, Shep occasionally senses that something unorthodox is happening.
Aunt Queenie Holroyd (mid 40's-mid 50's) Gillian’s Aunt, also a witch, although not as powerful as Gillian. She is slightly eccentric and a bit mischievous. She loves her magic and has fun using it.
Nick Holroyd (early 20's) Gillian’s brother. Charming, bright, with an easy manner and always ready for a party or a prank. Condescending toward mortals, but enjoys their company.
Sidney Redlitch (mid 40's-mid 50's) Author of a book about witchcraft containing just enough truth that it is clear he has some insights into this hidden world. He is an outsider and groupie, who thrives on being “in the know.” He is aware he will never be fully part of the witchy world and that lends him a slight air of desperation. He is always a little rumpled and often a little tipsy.
August 12th and August 13th
Callbacks or second audition/interview?
Please prepare a contemporary comedic monologue not to exceed 2 minutes (please no self-written or stand-alone). Part of the audition may include a cold reading. Actors of all ethnicities are encouraged to audition.
