EDITH CAN SHOOT THINGS AND HIT THEM
With no parents, little food, and nothing in the bank account, 12-year-old Edith, her brother Kenny, and a giant stuffed frog are doing just fine, thank you very much. Making the rules up as they go, Kenny gets more than mix-tapes from his new friend, Benji, and Edith ends up shooting something for real. Funny and full of heart, this coming of age story explores the gap between childhood and whatever comes next.
Auditions will be held on Thursday September 11 starting at 6pm at the Boston Center for the Arts
Rehearsals will be held from March 22-April 2 and resume on May 3.
Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them will run from June 4-June 27, 2015 at the Calderwood Pavilion.
Company One Theatre is looking for non-equity actors to play the following parts. We will see adult actors who look young for all three roles.
Edith:12, Filipino-American, a girl, Kenny's sister. She wears a stained T-shirt, ratty shorts, and is barefoot. She holds a giant stuffed frog to which she is too old to be talking, but does exactly that. Precocious, protective, outspoken. Owns a BB gun. She can shoot things and hit them.
Kenny:16, Filipino-American, a young man, Edith's brother. Kenny is a fairly average guy. The most outstanding thing about Kenny is the masterful degree to which he doesn't stand out. Trying to take care of himself and Edith with almost no help from his dad.
Benji:16, any race, a friend and classmate of Kenny's. Benji will one day go to MIT to become a civil engineer or to RISD to become an architect. Right now, though, he is too thin and too hunched over with hair that's a bit too long, clothes that are too starched, and aviator glasses that are too big for his face.
Actors should prepare a 1-2 minute contemporary monologue. Sides may be also be given out to actors in the audition.
