Seeking Cast for "Pride & Prejudice" Show
The company is holding auditions for "Pride & Prejudice" Show and looking for performers, please see the details below. ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE CONSIDERED. About the project: This isn’t your grandmother’s Austen! Bold, surprising, boisterous, and timely, this P&P for a new era explores the absurdities and thrills of finding your perfect (or imperfect) match in life. The outspoken Lizzy Bennet is determined to never marry, despite mounting pressure from society. But can she resist love, especially when that vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aggravating Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn?! Literature’s greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, or so full of life than it does in this effervescent adaptation. Because what turns us into greater fools…than the high-stakes game of love? Additional info: Production Dates/Times: Feb 14th - 24th (Wed - Sun & Thurs - Sat) Opening on Valentine’s Day! 7:30pm evenings. 2pm Sunday matinee. What to bring to auditions: Your current resume. A current headshot. Two prepared monologues from the materials sent to you. Please apply to receive audition materials.
JANE. The eldest and most beautiful Bennet daughter. Kind, idealistic, diffident. MISS DE BOURGH. Lady Catherine's daughter; a gremlin. Probably allergic to sun. Underneath all her veils, she may be covered in scales.
LIZZY. Clever, spirited; can be sharp-tongued. Gets flustered, which makes her klutzy. Prides herself on good judgment. Very very scared of marriage after absorbing the lessons of her parents' marriage.
LYDIA. The youngest Bennet. Lively, prone to imitating others and eavesdropping. LADY CATHERINE. Patrician Caesar-meets-drill sergeant.
MR. DARCY. One of the richest men in England. Too proper for his own good; awkward in most social contexts. Prides himself on self-control and good judgment.
MR. COLLINS. A pedantic, obtuse man. Mansplainer. Rector to Lady Catherine. WICKHAM. An unfairly handsome and charming gentleman. Probably a sociopath. MISS BINGLEY. A very rich, very beautiful young woman. Fancies herself witty.
MR. BINGLEY. Loves the world and the world loves him. Mr. Darcy's particular friend. Almost literally a dog. MARY. The third Bennet girl. Violent and dark undertones; prone to pedanticism and sulking. A dark goth Bronte character trapped in an Austen world.
CHARLOTTE LUCAS. Same age as Lizzy. A practical girl with a good sense of humor. MR. BENNET. The patriarch of the Bennet family. Finds amusement in absurdity; often looks for respectable escape from the chaos of his family life. Can be somewhat apathetic; probably a bit depressed, under everything. Disappointed in marriage.
MRS. BENNET. The matriarch of the Bennet family. Mostly a silly woman, of mean understanding and variable temper. Hypochondriac; when she's upset, she fancies that she's dying. The business of her life is to get her daughters married. SERVANTS.
