Synopsis:
CONTINUED CASTING:: Independent short film seeking actors who are not “acting”. Conversational dialogue, real-to-life story with real-to-life characters and depth in their eyes. Production team is serious and experienced. Numerous local and international film festivals are on the scope.

Synopsis: Sarah, a twenty-something introvert, finds a disillusioned solace in alcoholism. Ultimately, the genuine warmth of complete strangers will be her true escape and voyage back to loving herself.

Character Breakdowns:
Joselyn: late 30’s, responsible, mature, professional, loving, positive and patient. Joselyn is Sara’s sister. Strong scenes with lead. Heart to heart conversations. Soft-spoken. Strong eyes.

Kay: late 20’s – early 30’s, provocative, revealing, manipulating, expert at using other’s for her gain. Self-absorbed. The mirror is her one true love. Sara’s “best friend.” However, there’s more to Kay than just being a pretentious “B.” Her eyes tell a million lies. Her devious smile is as dangerous as a shotgun. She’s calculated. Seems to have a plan for anything and everyone.

Remaining roles have been casted. Thank you.

Breakdown

The Primal Scream is a love story set in a group therapy setting. Not the usual group, but a new kind of feeling therapy patterned after The Primal Scream (Primal Therapy)

Cast of Characters
POP ROCK VOICES FOR ALL ROLES.
PRINCIPALS:
JULIE – Mid to late 20s – A beautiful, shy all-American type, who is obviously depressed and repressed at the start of the play. She evolves into an open, loving and caring person. She is a painter.

JIM – Late 20s – A cynical, skeptical, repressed soul who is tall, well built, and has an air about him of not caring. He is a cocky musician in therapy by command of the courts for his treatment of his ex-wife.

DOCTOR – Mid 40s – humorous, warm, sometimes funny, enthusiastic, passionate man who is dedicated to his new radical therapy. He is trim and, at times, self-deprecating. He is a serious scholar.

TED – Early 30s – A wiry, hyperactive, wise-cracking Lenny Bruce type. He is a comic by profession. And, like many comics quite depressed. Married to Alice.

ALICE – Mid 30s – An intellectual, not terribly pretty, with glasses and stringy hair. A former radical who approaches everything with her “head.” She is addicted to big words and elaborate explanations. Married to Ted.

MARISSA – 30s – A pretty, slightly ding-batty woman. She is mystical and lives by astrology. She talks like a baby, and is an immature person.

ALEX – 30s – A gay priest who is very deprived. He is in therapy to stop being gay.

Auditions: August 25th and 26th from 5pm – 8pm

Legally Blonde Jr. follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery, and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. Adapted for younger performers and based on the popular movie, this show features an upbeat original score that’s sure to leave cast members and audiences alike seeing pink!
When Elle’s high school boyfriend Warner dumps her and heads to Harvard, claiming she’s not “serious” enough, Elle takes matters into her own hands, crafting a showy song-and-dance personal essay and charming her way into law school. Befriending classmate Emmett and spunky hairdresser Paulette along the way, Elle finds that books and looks aren’t mutually exclusive – in fact, law may be her natural calling after all as she quickly begins outsmarting her peers.

Auditions for this production are available by appointment only on August 25-26, between 5pm-8pm. Callbacks will take place August 28th from 5-8pm. Please see the form at www.redphoenix.org to sign up for your general audition. Please prepare a verse and a chorus of a song for your general audition.
