Please prepare a short monologue and bring a headshot with resume.
The audition will mostly consist of a short scene from the script.

Roles:
[Danny] [Male] (Speaking/Leading Role)
Age: 20-25 (Play 24)
Danny, average to above average height and dark-ish hair, is a troubled young man coming from a life of potential but stuck in a world of darkness. He struggles to escape his brother’s shadow and to live up to his father’s expectations.

[Dolly] [Female] (Speaking/Supporting Role)
Age: 19-23
Witty, clever, deceptive. A recovering drug addict. Dolly is Danny’s eventual love interest and seems to be the one person that he can confide in. He lets out all his secrets to her–but can she be trusted?

[Danny’s Dad] [Male] (Speaking/Supporting Role)
Age: 40-55
A former baseball player, now a baseball coach. Danny’s father is present throughout Danny’s past and plays an important role in shaping who Danny was, is, and seeks to become.

[Vince] [Male] (Speaking/Supporting Role)
Age: 40-55
Vince is weathered but tough, clearly the leader of the operation. He is a sort of father figure to Danny and counteracts his real father as the driving force of the dark world Danny is pulled into.

[Young Danny] [Male]

#HOURS ON SET: 1-2 hours
Young Danny is stuck on the bench in a baseball dugout while his Dad scolds him on how to play the game right. They watch their little league game unfold as Danny’s brother Bobby, off in the distance, once again excels as the team’s star player.
