Region: Eastern

Seeking:Henry Higgins: Male, 30-59a middle-aged confirmed bachelor, a professor of phonetics and an expert elocutionist. He is an unconventional man who goes in the opposite , direction from the rest of society in most matters. He is impatient with high society, forgetful in his public graces, and inconsiderate of normal social niceties. He has no desire to have romance of any kind in his life. PRINCIPAL. Eliza Doolittle: Female, 20-39, a poor girl who dreams of working in a flower shop while she sells flowers in England's Covent Garden. She employs Henry Higgins to help her with her speech and begins to transform herself into a regal figure fit to consort with nobility. In the end, she not only passes for a duchess, but becomes an independent woman. PRINCIPAL. Colonal Pickering: Male, 40-69, a kindly, middle-aged man who shares Higgins' passion for phonetics. Pickering is always considerate and a genuine gentleman who helps in the Eliza experiment by making a wager of it, saying he will cover the costs if Higgins does indeed make a convincing duchess of Eliza. It is Pickering's thoughtful treatment towards Eliza that teaches her to respect herself. PRINCIPAL. Alfred Doolittle: Male, 50-69, Eliza's father, a dustman, or trash collector, who has a very unique 'morality', in that he is very happy to be a freeloader. When he learns that his daughter has entered the home of Henry Higgins, he quickly follows to see if he can get some money out of the circumstance. His unique brand of rhetoric, unembarrassed, non-hypocritical advocacy of drink and pleasure (at other people's expense), is amusing to Higgins. PRINCIPAL. Freddy Eynsford-Hill: Male, 20-39, an aristocrat, although he has no income of his own. He becomes lovesick for Eliza, and courts her with letters. A romantic. PRINCIPAL, Mrs. Higgins: Female, 60-89, Professor Higgins' mother; a very refined lady of the upper-middle class. She sees the Eliza Doolittle experiment as idiocy and is the first and only character to have any qualms about the whole affair. When her worries prove true, it is to her that all the characters turn. Because no woman can match up to his mother, Higgins claims, he has no interest in dallying with them. PRINCIPAL. Mrs. Pearce: Female, 50-59, Higgins' housekeeper who helps to care for the well being of Eliza Doolittle. She is an observer of the experiment and watches to make sure that Eliza is kept safe. PRINCIPAL Professor Zoltan Karpathy: Male, 30-49, a Hungarian and a former student of Higgins. He is also a rival phonetics expert, in his own mind if not in Higgins', and quite proud of his linguistic accomplishments. He hires out his services to the queen of Transylvania. PRINCIPAL.

Macbeth is a brave soldier and a powerful man, but he is not a virtuous one. Easily tempted into murder to fulfill his ambitions to the throne, and once he commits his first crime and is crowned King of Scotland, he embarks on further atrocities with increasing ease. Ultimately, Macbeth proves himself better suited to the battlefield than to political intrigue, because he lacks the skills necessary to rule without being a tyrant. His response to every problem is violence and murder. Macbeth is never comfortable in his role as a criminal. He is unable to bear the psychological consequences of his atrocities. Lady Macbeth – Female, any ethnicity, 35-45. Macbeth’s wife, a deeply ambitious woman who lusts for power and position. Strong and ruthless. After the bloodshed begins, however, Lady Macbeth falls victim to guilt and madness to an even greater degree than her husband. Her conscience affects her to such an extent that she eventually commits suicide. Deeply in love with Macbeth; very sexual being. The Three Witches – Any gender, any ethnicity, 25-60. Mischief-makers. Of the cosmos. Take perverse delight in using their knowledge to toy with and destroy human beings. Strong vocal, physical actors. Banquo – Male, any ethnicity, 35-45. The brave, noble general whose children, according to the witches’ prophecy, will inherit the Scottish throne. Thinks ambitious thoughts, but he does not translate those thoughts into action. King Duncan – Male, any ethnicity, 60-70. The good King of Scotland whom Macbeth, in his ambition for the crown, murders. Duncan is the model of a virtuous, benevolent, and farsighted ruler. Macduff – Male, any ethnicity, 35-45. A Scottish nobleman hostile to Macbeth’s kingship from the start. Vengeful. Malcolm – Male, any ethnicity, 20-30. The son of Duncan, whose restoration to the throne signals Scotland’s return to order following Macbeth’s reign of terror. At times weak and uncertain of his own power. Hecate – Any gender, any ethnicity, 30-60. The goddess of witchcraft, who helps the three witches work their mischief on Macbeth. Fleance – Male, any ethnicity, 9-13. Banquo’s son, who survives Macbeth’s attempt to murder him. Lennox – Male, any ethnicity, 35-50. A Scottish nobleman. Ross – Male, any ethnicity, 35-50. A Scottish nobleman.

A rangy, versatile, chewy, formidable, protean character actor who can play frisky and intelligent as East Coast-flavored Garth, a character slightly analogous to the Stage Manager in “Our Town,” but assumes “Southern” demeanor elsewhere. He assumes other roles, including aged, sickly Alabama State Representative Bobby Crone: dedicated Montgomery newspaper reporter Herschel Webb, segregationist columnist Henry Balch, a Montgomery Radio Announcer and Alabama White Passersby. Lily Whitfield: 32, a white woman from small-town Alabama privilege; genteel Alabama accent. She is sheltered, ashamed, loyal, religious, garrulous, charming, unhappily married, all façade, ready to blossom. A good daughter. A Southern belle whose wounds and regrets are evident under the surface of her charm and chatter. Childhood trauma and family tradition have kept her in a narrow world and she can easily slip into the past, curious about the man who got away. Girlish at the top of the play, but evolved by the end. A faded Juliet, unhappily married, a rueful girl next door seeking to heal a primary wound. Flashback takes her to age eleven. Joshua Moore: 32, upwardly mobile middle-class African-American man who left Alabama for the Midwest more than a decade ago; purposely subtle and suppressed Alabama accent, which becomes pronounced when agitated. He is aspirational, loyal, kind, worldly, slow to boil, a disciple of Dr. King. Knows his place in the world of the segregated South, but can push against it and be pulled into the past when seeking to heal a primary wound. Happily married, but curious about the girl who got away. A war hero with patience, virtue and a wish to educate, but he has a breaking point. Practical and progressive, with an Atheist leaning. Flashback takes him to age eleven. Think young Sidney Poitier. Senator E.W. Higgins: 50s-60s, a white Alabama State Senator; pronounced but not extreme Alabama accent. Swaggering Southern politician committed to tradition at all costs. He owns every room that he’s in, or so he thinks. He is a charmer, a bully, a poisoner, a politician, a victim of the world he grew up in, with a wounded child deep inside. Not a caricature, not a cartoon, knows his world and does his homework. Never wrong and never sorry. Think charismatic George Wallace or Big Daddy in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” Emily Wheelock Reed: 50s-60s, a white librarian, the State Librarian of Alabama, born in North Carolina and raised in Indiana; no Southern accent. Formidable. Heroic, without wearing it on her sleeve. The most educated character in the play. Passionate about work. She has no sense of humor, she does not suffer fools, she is all-business. Champion of librarianship and the freedom to read without marching and waving a banner. More introvert than extrovert, dignity of hard work. but can but can more than hold her own when defending her job to the men in power. Doesn’t wear politics on her sleeve. Rarely wrong. Thomas Franklin: 28, a white reference librarian, Emily’s assistant, an Alabama native; genteel, educated, pronounced Alabama accent. He is officious, efficient, slightly uncomfortable in his own skin, possibly quirky, a bookworm, very good at his job, deeply protective of his boss, pre-thinks everything. A good son. A slight mystery about him. Gay and closeted. Neutral and objective when conveying information about the state of the Deep South. A grown-up kid who becomes a man. Doesn’t wear politics on his sleeve. Please avoid stereotype or caricature. These are real people, if slightly heightened; they are not cartoons. _____________________ Angels in America – Parts 1 & 2 Written by: Tony Kushner Director: Rick Dildine Contract Dates: April 1st – May 31st, 2020 LORT C Contract Character Breakdowns Roy Cohn.

She’s had to learn about hatred and fighting it with goodness opposed to more hatred at a very young age. 14 years old. Still learning how to communicate with others. It’s not that she doesn’t know what to say, she’s just needs a bit more time to get good at articulating. She just wants to be amongst people that maybe already understand her opposed to those that immediately judge her and make ignorant assumptions. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent Another Lady: Poem: “A Prayer” She’s 50+. She represents a great aunt, or grandma that prays for A Lady once she leaves for school. Her faith carries her through all of the ups and downs of life. If only everyone could just be happy. People, especially romantic interests, have told her that she’s complicated. She disagrees with this, because her goals are actually very simple. It’s everything else that muddles her paths and causes the complications. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent This Lady: Poem: “Just Women” College student that’s very active in the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee. Very confident and powerful, yet she has an innocence about her. Early 20’s. Has recently discovered that her voice is a tool. Is not here for foolishness. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent That Lady: Poem: “Just Women” She’s in her late 40’/50s (not as old as Another Lady. She’s an active member of the Black Panther Party and is over all of it. She just wants what’s best for her and her community and is fed up with discrimination, racism, sexism, etc. She’s not aggressive, but it’s clear that she’s prepared to do all she can to support her vigilant cause. Has been in the midst of bs for too long now. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent Some Lady: Poem: “How Many” Old enough to have a daughter that’s 13 years old. This is maybe her youngest daughter. She’s maybe in/around her 40’s. Definitely younger than Another Lady. Like us all, she’s struggling with working on herself. She’s tired of being hurt from love and by love. She can’t figure out if she’s the problem or not but can understand why she would ever be the problem. Love isn’t her ultimate goal, but it sure would nice to have along the way. She isn’t sure if it actually will- if someone will ever truly love her the way she wants. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent Other Lady: Poem: “Hands” In her 30’s. I don’t think she should be older than that because she’s in Awkward Black Girls with Some Other Lady. She enslaved on a plantation in the deep south, so she endures very hard life, yet through it all she’s proud of who she is and finds space and time to recognize her resilience. She’s dealt with being awkward from a very young age. Because of this, she understands her feelings and body very well and accepts that the awkwardness will never subside. She “handles” it as best as she can. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent Some Other Lady: Poem: “How Many” Late 20’s. Very inspired and reinvigorated to live in NYC and pursue a new life in art. Proud, a bit naïve, very inquisitive. She’s also of the awkward sort. She seems to not be heard even when she’s sure she’s speaking up. She’s a perfectionist that’s guilty of trying too hard. She has no chill. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent One More Lady: Poem: Black Female Artist Early 30’s. She’s sassy and doesn’t need help with accessing her self-confidence. She’s fed up and tired of the system and has been ready to be a force for change. She isn’t good at concealing her emotions. They stay on her as she feels them. This is why people have so many questions that she’s tired of pretending to answer. Her rap reveals her response to the world that won’t seem to leave her be. She can snap back ignorance with fire so smooth that people won’t understand until she’s gone. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent Last Lady: Poem: “Grace” Mid 20’s. She’s still grieving her Dad’s death. Last Lady is self-conscious, is tired and almost unaware that she holds the power to make a difference. She’s doesn’t understand the positive influence her plight and words have on her community. She’s always exhausted from her struggle of holding it all- of trying to be the best Black girl she can be. She wants to sleep, but truly will never stop.
