Synopsis:
When Julia learns of a life-altering event, she decides it is time to confront her abusive husband.
Cast:
JULIA BANNER         A wife and mother of DIANA. Not a sparkling beauty; but a pretty though somewhat “average” looking woman – in decent shape, though. Thin / small.
WILLIAM BANNER   Husband, father of DIANA. He should look either fairly average, or slightly large. Comfortable in a button-down shirt, though not extremely neat or pressed.
* DIANA BANNER       Daughter of JULIA and WILLIAM.  Age is flexible-ideally under 6ish.
FRANK     An average looking guy, maybe slightly stocky. Possibly ex-military. He’s wearing a large coat – not as cheesy as a trench coat, but from the same vein.
KATHY           Friend of Julia, mother of 1-year old TIMMY who we may (likely not) see.
NATALIE        Friend of Julia. Mother of BLAIR  For audition purposes, please read for “Kathy”
* BLAIR             NATALIE’s child – sex and age are flexible.
* Children will be auditioned Saturday, September 15, beginning at 3pm.  More info/questions: kmendelowitz@alaska.edu
Auditioners for Julia, Kathy, Natalie or William: if you happen to be a parent, please bring a photo of you with your child.

There will be an open read-through of the script on Thursday, August 30 from 1:05-1:50pm in Theatre 101 ("Green Room") where the director will be available to answer questions about the production and auditions.  This is optional, but a chance for those not familiar with this original script to learn more about the project.

Production Schedule: Primary filming will take place primarily on Fridays, 11:45am-4:30pm throughout the Fall semester.  Rehearsals will be determined based on cast availability.
Final production screening tentatively scheduled for late Spring.
