Compensation – Food, Drink, Networking, and a Great Time, and Footage

GRACE WALKER – Lead – Must pass for 15-16 years old – Bookworm, somewhat athletic, not a girly-girl but still fairly self-conscious about the way she looks because appearance is emphasized, particularly for women/girls in the church. Strives to be good, a worrier, has started to question things. Nice smile a huge plus. WORKLOAD – 2 lines, shot waking up, washing face, getting baptized (full immersion … so YOU WILL GET WET) in pool, and walking in forest. COSTUMES – Pajamas, dress, and maybe a casual set … perfect for a walk in the woods on a summer day.

PASTOR MARTY/SANTA CLAUS/DEVIL – Pass for Late 30s and up – Patriarch of the church, voice of authority, loves hell-fire and damnation sermons, almost a God-like ego, feared by his congregation. WORKLOAD – As Pastor – 4 lines in single baptism at pool scene – As Santa – 1 line (Ho, Ho, Ho!) at baptism, and As Devil – no lines, at baptism. WILL GET WET. COSTUME – As pastor – A bit dressy. Dark dress pants, belt, solid dark or white shirt, dark socks, no patterns on shirt please. As Santa Claus – – Add Santa Hat & Beard. As Devil – Add horns. Makeup effects and costumes a BIG PLUS.

JED WILDER – Grace’s boyfriend – Must pass for 16-18 years old – Boy next-door, flirty, somewhat superficial, doesn’t question his surroundings, confident in that way that only someone who accepts everything and loves himself. Can be a bit arrogant. WORKLOAD – non-speaking in single baptism at pool scene. WILL GET WET. COSTUME – As dressy as a teenager gets that is watching their girlfriend get baptized.

MOTHER – 45ish – Conservative, put together, appearance is extremely important to her … although she tries to disguise it with pious behavior and Jesus talk. WORKLOAD – Possibly bedroom scene getting ready for the baptism, and at baptism at pool. WILL NOT GET WET. COSTUME – Dressy. Your daughter is getting baptized.

CONGREGATION EXTRAS – All and any. Will NOT get wet (unless you fall into pool). Single baptism at pool scene. WILL NOT GET WET. COSTUMES – Various, but dressy … like you are going to a baptism.
