Character Breakdown
Mike Talman (35-50)A good con man just paroled from prison. Ruggedly handsome, well dressed. At one time, Mike was a decent human being, and still has impulses that way. Mike has natural empathy and compassion.
Sergeant Carlino (40-55)Carlino is a small-time grifter. He is a coarse, uneducated man who isnít bothered by much of a conscience. He lives from day to day, just trying to survive in a world in which he is never the sharpest guy in the room, whatever room heís in.
Harry Roat (30-50)Roat is a true sociopath. He has no empathy for anyone, and he has a sadistic streak a mile wide. Like many sociopaths, he is highly intelligent and manipulates people with ease.
Susy Hendrix (28 years old)Susy is a vivacious young woman who was blinded in a car accident a year ago. She married Sam a few months after the accident and was drawn to his refusal to see her as handicapped.
Sam Hendrix (35-40)Sam is Suzyís husband and a former marine. He loves her very much and wants to see her reach her full potential as a person regardless of her blindness Ė as a result, he believes that he has to be hard on her sometimes.
Gloria (11-12)Gloria is at that very awkward age between childhood and adolescence. She has a vague crush on Sam, which makes her jealous of Susy.
Policemen (25-55) ((2 ROLES))Two cops come in at the end right after the climax of the play. Both men are serious about their work and very professional.

We will announce auditions for the remainder of the season soon.

Plymouth Community Theatre holds auditions for each production. The requirements for each audition will vary by director and will be posted when the auditions are announced.

Actors interested in attending our open auditions may request further information via the "Get Involved" link on the right. Attending an open audition does not excuse an actor from auditioning for each show individually. However, actors may be invited to audition for specific roles based on their open audition, or they may be invited to callbacks despite being unable to attend a show audition.

For open auditions, we request two prepared monologues (comic and dramatic), each under 2 minutes in length. If you do not have prepared monologues, we will have stock monologues for you to read from. Please feel free to email us ahead of time and we will forward you the appropriate readings for you to review prior to the auditions.

Singers may also prepare 32 bars of a musical theater song of their choice.

Resumes and headshots are welcome, but not required
(we will take your photo when you check in for the audition).
