Acme Theater Productions is happy to announce auditions for their Spring 2016 production of Diana Son's "Stop Kiss". Directed by Gordon Ellis
"Stop Kiss" is an unconventional story of love and personal discovery told on a fractured timeline. In New York, two women meet and a friendship is formed. Then an incident occurs that forever changes both their lives. Presented in alternating scenes from both before and after the moment that altered them forever, the play challengers its cast to bounce back-and-forth between two drastically different emotional states.
Production dates: April 29th – May 21st (Fridays & Saturdays at 8 PM, Sunday 5/15 at 3 PM)
Audition dates: Sunday, February 28th, 3 PM Tuesday, March 1st, 7 PM
Auditions will consist of readings from the script. Sides will be made available prior to the auditions for those who wish to prepare. Actresses auditioning for the roles of Callie and Sara are asked to prepare a one minute dramatic monologue and should anticipate staying longer than those auditioning for other roles. Those actresses are also encouraged to dress comfortably, as the audition process may consist of some physical interplay. For more information please contact the director at email@example.com.
CAST OF CHARACTERS (Ages are merely as suggested by the script. Casting is flexible in regards to age and ethnic background.)
CALLIE (late 20's to early 30's) – Originally from upstate NY, she has been living for over a decade within the comforting anonymity of the city. While not necessarily lost, she is searching for something.
SARA (mid 20's to early 30's) – A recent transplant to NY from the mid-west, she is not naïve, but approaches new adventures (and people) fearlessly.
GEORGE (late 20's to early 30's) – Callie's part-time boyfriend, he's a laidback guy who's a bit low on ambition but a solid friend.
PETER (mid 20's to early 30's) – Sara's ex-boyfriend from the Midwest. Placed in a difficult situation, he does not appear to be particularly forgiving.
MRS. WINSLEY (early 40's to early 50's) – The lone witness to the "incident", she is strong of will and open of mind.
DETECTIVE COLE (late 30's to mid-40's) – A NYC Police Detective who has seen enough to remain unmoved by what he hears. A no-nonsense type of guy.
NURSE (late 30's to mid-40's) (Note: the roles of Mrs. Winsley and The Nurse may be cast using the same actress)
Acme Theater is located at 63 Summer St., Maynard, MA
