Those auditioning will be asked to read from the script both singularly and in
combination with others. No preparation is required.
The roles available are as follows:
Cripple Billy (16-24) – mild mannered, capable of showing intelligence, evoking empathy and delivering humor. This actor must be able to sustain a believable cripple arm and leg affliction throughout the performance.
Bartley (15-20) – a likeable but not so smart energetic teenager.
JohnnyPateenMike (40-60) – a fairly obnoxious self-important chatterbox.
BabbyBobby (30-40) – a seasoned jack of all trades type, likeable but a bit rough around the edges
Doctor McSharry (40-60) – a mannered country doctor type; the voice of reason
Kate & Eileen (40-60) (sisters) – both are fairly plain and capable of delivering lines of deadpan humor. Your favorite old aunties.
Helen (16-24) – pretty, brash, and independent.
Mammy (60+)– dyed in the wool lush.
