August: Osage County – Equity Principal Auditions

Broadway/Production Contract $1,558/week minimum.
Currently running on Broadway.
Seeking possible future replacements.

Casting Director states, “All characters should have a Midwestern, homespun, bred-from-the- plains feel about them.”

Violet: 55 – 65. Strong and sarcastic pill-popper. Her humor borders on the vulgar. Actress in this role must be comfortable with swearing and smoking and must be physically fit, as there is a rough fight and she also has to climb up and down a lot of stairs.

Mattie Fae: 55 – 65. Violet’s sister. Blowsy, loud, funny and self-deprecating.

Barbara: Mid 40s. Tough, funny, smart and in the middle of an emotional roller coaster.

Ivy: Mid 40s. The daughter who stayed home. Resentful. A loner.

Karen: Early 40s. A bit scattered. High energy.

Jean: Actress plays age 14 – 16. Although she appears to be a “typical” American teenager (awkward, self-absorbed insecure and also a bit of a pothead), she has a fierce intellect and a sharp wit.

Johnna: Native American woman, 28 – 35. Pretty, down-to-earth and practical.

Beverly: Man, mid 60s. Violet’s husband. Literate, intelligent and cynical.

Charles: 50s. Mattie Fae’s husband. Easygoing, patient and honest.

Bill: Late 40s. Barbara’s husband. Intellectual and frustrated. His marriage is falling apart.

Steve: 50. Karen’s fiancé. A smooth operator.

Little Charles: Late 30s. Charles and Mattie Fae’s son. At a loss as to how the world around him works. A big lug.

Sheriff: Early 40s. Small-town cop.
