Seeking:Jenna: Female, 20s-30s, any ethnicity. A woman stuck in her life as an unhappily married waitress in a small town; finds some happiness and expression through her meticulous baking of pies and her friendships with her coworkers, Dawn and Becky; lives her live paycheck-to-paycheck, day by day, and wants nothing more than to get away and start fresh, unbeknownst to her destructive husband, Earl. Must have a fantastic pop/rock voice with great range. Principal. Dawn: Female, 20s, any ethnicity. She is the youngest of the waitresses; thick glasses, hair parted 14 centimeters to the left—eccentric is the nice way to say she’s slightly unusual, and not so slightly OCD; she sets the tables, painstakingly insuring each salt and pepper-shaker is equidistant from the napkin holder. Must have an excellent pop/rock/folk voice. Principal. Becky: Female, early 40s-early 50s, any ethnicity. The oldest of the three waitresses; irreverent, irascible, been there, made it back, and somehow kept her forward and sometimes wicked sense of humor with excellent comedic timing. Must have a soulful pop voice with an excellent pop belt. Principal. Dr. Pomatter: Male, 30s-early 40s, any ethnicity. Handsome, endearing, and neurotic; has a warm, if clumsy, matter; Jenna’s gynecologist with whom an unexpected extramarital affair is born; has a quirky sense of humor and a big heart, despite the fact that he’s contributing to the affair; must have impeccable comedic timing and must move well. Should have a very strong pop/rock tenor that can navigate the musical style of Sara Bareilles with ease. Principal. Earl: Male, 20s-30s, Caucasian. Jenna’s husband; peaked in high school, handsome in a gruff way, but that face is clouded with broken dreams, drowned with cheap beer; just enough narcissism mixed with stupidity to be a potent Molotov cocktail that can explode into unexpected anger one second and then turn into a sobbing mess the next. Actors auditioning for Earl would need to come prepared with a song in the vein of Elton John or a similar contemporary singer/songwriter. Guitar playing a plus. Principal. Ogie: Male, 30s, any ethnicity. Strange, yet oddly lovable; becomes slightly obsessed with Dawn (in a hilarious yet endearing way) after she goes on a five-minute date with him; quirky, incredibly persistent, and odd, yet kind. Should have excellent comedic timing. Must have an excellent pop/rock tenor/baritenor sound. Principal. Joe: Male, 60s-70s, any ethnicity. The owner of the diner where Jenna, Dawn, Becky, and Cal work; a seemingly old, curmudgeonly man who has a soft spot for Jenna (and her pie), but picks when that warmth allows itself to be shown; a sarcastically funny and no-nonsense guy with a keen ability to read people. Very funny. Principal. Cal, u/s Joe: Male, any ethnicity, 40s. Cal: A chef at the diner; a “salt of the earth” guy’s guy surrounded by gals; brash, impatient, unsentimental, but somehow charming; should have a strong pop/rock voice with great comedic chops; must have a strong contemporary baritone singing voice in the style of Sara Bareilles and have excellent comedic timing. Will also understudy the role of Joe: male, 60s-70s, any ethnicity. The owner of the diner where Jenna, Dawn, Becky, and Cal work; a seemingly old, curmudgeonly man who has a soft spot for Jenna (and her pie), but picks when that warmth allows itself to be shown; a sarcastically funny and no-nonsense guy with a keen ability to read people. Very funny. Principal.
