The Exchange NYC is holding auditions for Little Black Dress

Equity principal auditions

Casting the following Roles

Amy Budreaux:
41. Married, unhappy, full of big fantasies that are on their way to becoming regrets, and eventually just plain silly. A romantic with a streak of danger and a sense of humor. Has more energy and imagination than she knows what to do with. Reads supermarket novels and self-help books.

Jimmy, Jr.:
18. Amy’s only child. He’s only just finished high school, and dreams of Tenchu and Tekken (aka being a video-game designer). He’s not without ambition for better things than his Kansas town seems to offer him. A bit of a nerd, likable and funny.

Charley:
19-20. Entrepreneur who believes that if you find what you’re good at – what you love to do – well, you’re lucky if you’re allowed the opportunity to develop your skills and earn money for it at the same time. Charley has found this by performing a very important service for the women of the town – a service he, in fact, feels he was called to. Fancies himself a real go-getter.

Jimmy, Sr.:
40s. Factory worker. Would be a lout if he knew what the word meant, but in fact is also the most honest person in this play. Believes firmly in doing what is right and wrong for himself and family, and doing what you have to do to take charge and regain your dignity. Not to mention that he adheres to the old adage about “sparing the rod”. Loves Amy and his son, Jimmy, Jr., but doesn’t know how to express himself in a loving way.

1st reh: 4/4/11. Runs 4/30-5/29 (Tu-Su; Sa/Sun matinees; no Su eve) at Theatre at St. Clements.
