The plot centers on the town's annual Christmas Yard Display Contest, won 14 times in a row by Vera Carp. A mysterious "Christmas Phantom," known for vandalizing the yard displays, has the contestants on edge. Among the subplots are Stanley Bumiller's attempts to end his probation and leave Tuna, Bertha Bumiller's struggle to hold her family together at Christmastime, and Joe Bob Lipsey's fight to mount successfully his production of A Christmas Carol despite the town controller of the electric company threatening to turn the lights off. The play is both an affectionate commentary and withering satire of small town, Southern life and attitudes. A Tuna Christmas is the second in a series of comedic plays set in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas. (The play is preceded by Greater Tuna and followed by Red, White and Tuna and Tuna Does Vegas.) Two actors play all 20 zany characters. 2 Males: *Casting notes: Each plays all of the denizens of Tuna, Texas, will be played by two actors. ----------- “Annie” Based on Little Orphan Annie, the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a worldwide sensation. Winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, the beloved show features a wonderful score written by Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, including the Broadway smash hit, “Tomorrow.” With a perfect combination of street-smarts and optimism, Annie warms the heart of the audience as we witness her rise from next-to-nothing in New York City. She is determined to find her parents, who left her at the orphanage years ago. Though things don’t quite work out the way she has planned, she does manage to thwart the plans of the evil Miss Hannigan and find a new family with billionaire Oliver Warbuchs, his secretary Grace Farrell, and her lovable pooch, Sandy. Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks: 40’s. Male. Baritone. Warbucks is a powerful and self-assured billionaire who always has his mind on business. At first awkwardly affectionate towards Annie, he soon finds himself completely charmed by her. Grace Farrell: She is the loyal private secretary to Oliver Warbucks. Grace is mature, calm, and classy. Although she has feelings for Mr. Warbucks, she tries not to show them. She is businesslike when dealing with Miss Hannigan and Warbucks, yet maternal toward Annie. The student playing Grace can set herself apart from the other characters simply by the sophisticated way she walks. Grace should seem ready with an answer for just about anything. Each dramatic situation should seem to come “under control” the moment she glides into a scene. Miss Hannigan: The villainous orphanage matron. Her distaste for her job and the children is obvious in all that she does and says. Must play comedy well. Switches back and forth from being mean to falsely loving in a split second. Rooster Hannigan: Miss Hannigan’s despicable brother. Rooster is flashy and self-assured. His ‘moves’ are as smooth as a gambler’s; sly and deceiving. The actor in this role should bring a sense of fun to the character and have a good sense of comic timing. Lily St. Regis: Lily is Rooster’s airhead girlfriend. She is always distracted, although she manages to pick up on any conversation involving money. Like Rooster, the actress playing this role should bring a sense of fun to the character and have a good sense of comic timing. ------------ “Dixie Swim Club” Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other's lives. The Dixie Swim Club focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. Sheree, the spunky team captain, desperately tries to maintain her organized and "perfect" life, and continues to be the group's leader. Dinah, the wisecracking overachiever, is a career dynamo. But her victories in the courtroom are in stark contrast to the frustrations of her personal life. Lexie, pampered and outspoken, is determined to hold on to her looks and youth as long as possible. She enjoys being married—over and over and over again. The self-deprecating and acerbic Vernadette, acutely aware of the dark cloud that hovers over her life, has decided to just give in and embrace the chaos. And sweet, eager-to-please Jeri Neal experiences a late entry into motherhood that takes them all by surprise. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives in the second act, these friends, proving the enduring power of "teamwork," rally 'round their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. The Dixie Swim Club is the story of these five unforgettable women—a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever... *The characters in this play will be portrayed at ages forty-four, forty-nine, fifty-four, and seventy-seven. Sheree Hollinger: the perennial team captain, is practical, supportive and a fount of boundless enegery. Never without her to –do lists or Pocket Scheduler, her tendency to be hyper-organized occasionally drives her friends a bit crazy. She’s the eternal tomboy, a health nut and an all-American mom who lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, with her family. Dina Grayson: the wise-cracking cynic of the group, has fought her way to the top and relishes the view. A lawyer in the biggest and most prestigious law firm in Atlanta, Dinah excels at everything....except romance. Armed with a dry marini and an even drier sense of humor, Dinah seldom reveals her softer side as she tackles life head-on. Lexie Richards: a true Southern belle who lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, is the vain, youth-obsessed event planner for a chain of four-star hotels. She has never shied away from the occasional nip or tuck and keeps her cosmetic surgeon on speed dial. Always one to revel in her status as a man-magnet, Lexie can be counted on to share wild and hilarious tales of her romantic exploits. Jeri Neal McFeeley: is the ditzy ray of sunshine of the group. She’s perky and naïve and always sees the positive side of everything. Having been a nun for many years, Jeri Neal has been protected from life’s seamier side. Even though she appears to be predictable on the surface, Jeri Neal, recently relocated to Charlottesville, VA., continually makes life choices that surprise and amaze her friends. Vernadette Simms: is a hard luck case if there ever was one. Marriage and motherhood came shortly after college, a dark cloud has hovered over her since. A public school teacher, with limited finances and a problematic home life in Spivey’s Corner, North Carolina, Vernadette is self-deprecating by necessity. She faces her tribulations with gallows humor and the unwavering support of these lifelong friends. ------------ “Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” The biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes alive in the musical retelling. Joseph --the favorite son of Jacob -- is blessed with vivid dreams that foretell the future. Sold into slavery by his jealous brothers, Joseph endures a series of adventures which challenge him to his core. Soon he finds himself belonging to Potiphar, whose wife makes advances toward Joseph and ultimately land him behind bars. However, news of Joseph’s ability to interpret dreams sparks the interest of the hilariously Elvis-like Pharaoh. Soon, Joseph is out of jail and well on his way to second-in-command. Eventually Joseph’s brothers find themselves unknowingly groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed. As they fail to even recognize him, Joseph tests their integrity. He ultimately reveals himself and the brothers are reconciled. A truly timeless Old Testament tale, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is set to a multitude of musical genres, spanning from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock and roll. Narrator: Soprano with extended mix/belt range. Vibrant, energetic, charming performer, with a superior voice. Movement/dance experience preferred.

Song styles include: Country-Western, French Bistro/Maurice Chevalier, and Reggae. Pharaoh: The most powerful man in Egypt, Pharaoh is considered a god on earth. Should be an outgoing, engaging entertainer, able to take the stage and connect with an audience. Potiphar: A powerful and rich Egyptian and Joseph’s employer. Mrs. Potiphar: Beautiful and scheming, dancer. ------------- “Amadeus” The play explores the rivalry between Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri, the court composer for the Emperor of Austria in the late eighteenth century. Jealous of Mozart’s genius and resentful of his own mediocrity, the composer Antonio Salieri secretly rejects God and vows to destroy his rival's career. Antonio Salieri: plays himself in his late 30’s-40’s and also mid-70’s. Wry, charming, sophisticated and resentful of Mozart’s god-given abilities. As narrator of the play, Salieri leads the audience through the story. Requires excellent language and vocal skills.

Seymour Krelborn is a meek and dejected assistant at a floral shop who happens upon a strange plant, which he affectionately names “Audrey II” after his crush at the shop. Little does he know that this strange and unusual plant will develop a soulful R&B voice, a potty mouth, and an unquenchable thirst for human blood. As Audrey II grows bigger and meaner, the carnivorous plant promises limitless fame and fortune to Seymour, as long as he continues providing a fresh supply of blood. Just when it’s too late, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s extra-terrestrial origins and his true drive for world-domination. Seymour: mid 20s. Our insecure, QDwve, put-upon, florists’ clerk hero. Above all, he’s a sweet and well-meaning little man. He is not a silly nerd, and therefore, should not be played as the hero of a Jerry Lewis film. Strong acting and singing required.

Orin: A tall, dark, handsome dentist with a black leather jacket and cruel tendencies. Makes a couple of brief, but high impact, appearances. Strong character actor and singer. Voice Of The Plant: Provided by an actor on an offstage microphone, lip-syncing to the movements of the puppets. His voice is a cross between Otis Redding, Barry White, and Wolfman Jack. Think of the voice as that of a street-smart, funky, conniving Villain – Rhythm and Blues’ answer to Richard the Third. Strong character singer. Crystal, Ronnette, And Chiffon: Late teens to 20s. Three female ‘street urchins’ who function as participants in the action as a Greek Chorus commenting and narrating the action. They’re young, hip, smart, and the only people in the whole cast who really know what’s going on. Must be strong singers, great with tight harmony. All must move very well. ------------- “Dial 'M' For Murder” Tony Wendice has married his wife, Margot, for her money and now plans to murder her for the same reason. He arranges the perfect murder. He blackmails a scoundrel he used to know into strangling her for a fee of one thousand pounds, and arranges a brilliant alibi for himself. Unfortunately...the murderer gets murdered and the victim survives. But this doesn’t baffle the husband; he sees his hireling’s death as an opportunity to have his wife convicted for the murder of the man who tried to murder her, and that is what almost happens. Luckily, the police inspector from Scotland Yard and a young man who is in love with the wife discover the truth, and in a scene of almost unbearable suspense, they trap the husband into revealing his guilt, thus freeing Margot. Margot Wendice: The charming, naïve, and wealthy wife of Tony, Margot has no idea that Tony knows of her past affair with Max, nor does she suspect that Tony is planning to murder her. Max Halliday: An American murder mystery writer, Tony had an affair with Margot during the time Tony was playing professional tennis tournaments in America. He is still in love with Margot and comes to visit the couple in London. Tony Wendice: Margot’s husband, Tony is a former professional tennis player who married Margot for her money. He is selfish and arrogant and has an elaborate scheme to murder Margot because of jealousy over a past affair between Margot and Max. Captain Lesgate: An old schoolmate of Tony’s and a convicted criminal, Lesgate is now being blackmailed by Tony into murdering Margot. He seems willing to do anything for money. Inspector Hubbard: A British Inspector of Police, Hubbard is a bit eccentric, but thoughtful and thorough.

Says things like, “I want to make love to you,” & “I want to rub your feet” & means them. You’d think he’d get all the ladies. He doesn’t & hasn’t for quite some time. Plays up right base in a jazz band and acoustic guitar in his apartment. His favorite song is Barry White’s “I’ve Got So Much to Give.” He believes in love and fate and whiskey, always with love as the first and most important, the other two changing depending on the day. Possesses some stalker tendencies, such as over-calling, overtexting, etc. but we use that word too liberally in this country. Let’s call him an obsessive. Passionate. He talks to his mom on the phone every morning. He works at Sunshine Cinema & sees a lot of couples on dates. Justin’s parents are from Trinidad And Tobago. They are extremely reserved. He is the family oddity, even from his brother, who is his polar opposite in all things. That Bitch on the Couch: (Also plays Drunk White Woman) is the only white person in this play. She’s from Westchester, New York. Incredibly wealthy, like old money white folk WASP and all that. Incredibly white. Went to Exeter Academy for high school type shit. Did cotillion and founded her boarding school’s Black Student Union. It was confusing. ______________________ “Steppenwolf Subscription Production #4” Mae: This role has already been cast. We will be casting understudies. Daughter of Dad. Lover of Mac. 32. Dad: Father of Mae. In his 60s. He has a scar that goes across his neck from one ear to the other. It looks like someone tried to cut his head off. Mac: A dude from Mae’s hometown. A few years older than Mae. Jenny: Mae’s little sister. Matthew: Mae’s little brother. Hannah: Mae’s big sister. Cowboy: Mae’s lover in her head. Like the Marlboro Man; sexy. ______________________ “Steppenwolf for Young Audiences Production #2” Tara: 17-19 years old female, Senior in high school; Popular (by any means necessary). Wants to be seen, always. And wants to be the one everyone looks to for trends, advice, what to think, wear, say, and do. Is pretty sharp. She's able to use reason, fact, and logic to justify her severe attacks upon other, weaker girls. Because she can. Tara uses social media for visibility. Andi: 17-19 years old female, Senior in high school; BF’s with Tara, though she may not like her all the time, she’s obsessively attached to her. Academically mediocre to subpar. Well-liked at school. Sliding by in all aspects of life. Distant/Absent family members. Her social clique is vital to her. On the basketball team, and serious about it, but constantly on academic probation. Likes to talk all “street” but it’s a front. Openly gay, secretly crushing on Tara. Uses social media to Search and Follow. Shauna: 17-19 years old female, Senior in high school; A seeker: of information, of approval, of help. Popular enough, but only at the mercy of Tara and Andi. She’s the student in class who can always find the right answer, but doesn’t always know what to do with it. Interested in knowledge. She knows how to work a system to her benefit. She’s biding her time before she can get out of school. Uses social media for its persistence and consistency. Mercedes: 17-19 years old female, Senior in high school; The outsider. From a different neighborhood than the other girls. Moved into this school when her school on the Westside closed and the students were siphoned into existing schools. Quiet, attempts to blend and disappear, but is unsuccessful due to the fact that she sticks out like a sore thumb. The daughter of a hugely Christian Conservative family, her manner and dress veer toward the modern Mennonite, and when she bothers to speak in school, it's to be proudly vocal for her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This doesn't earn her a ton of friends, and in fact, makes her an easy target. Mercedes had an older brother who fucked up with drugs and gangs and was a fatal victim of that lifestyle. Her family turned to religion for succor in their time of grief. Her family is very protective of Mercedes, their only living child. Mercedes uses social media to spread and to hide. Erik: Mid 20’s to mid 30’s. Under 10 years in his teaching career. Idealist. Teaches English and Drama, but would much rather only be teaching Drama. In recovery through AA for about three years now. Used to be religious, but lost it as he entered adulthood. From a small town, Erik had dreams of making it as an actor in Chicago. Truly, truly loves theater. Lets his job consume his life, and this sometimes allows him to get caught up in “student drama.” ______________________ “Steppenwolf Subscription Production #5” Note: No performances on Saturday May 12 – Gala.
