An original work inspired by The West Wing, this 10-minute play follows the President and First-Lady as they face their first challenge just hours after being inaugurated.
The roles being auditioned are:
Charlie (M/F, early 20s) - The personal aide to the president. Strong sense of honor and loyalty.
Jim (M 40s/50s) - The newly inaugurated president. Folksy charm, professorial.
Penelope (F 40s/50s) - The First Lady, very protective of her family, full of wisdom and wit.
The script is roughly 10-minutes in length.
The rehearsal process will be four 2-hour rehearsals followed by a filmed staged reading.
This production will be a part of Cardboard Cinema Productions' Summer Staged Reading Series. These roles are not paid and are non-equity. This production will be directed by Brandon Lindsey.
