NYC Theater Auditions: Seeking trained actors for “Benefactors”

Project: Benefactors
Casting Calls Category: Theater
Location: New York, NY

CASTING:

DAVID
Mid-30s to mid-40s, any ethnicity, idealistic architect, an altruist, classic “good guy,” may be more charactery than traditionally handsome, bright, really cares about the world and those less fortunate, his single-mindedness makes him blind to the people closest to him, his work is the most important thing in his life, likable and warm, not smug, think Jimmy Stewart or Sam Waterston as a young man

JANE
Mid-30s to mid-40s, any ethnicity, David’s wife, the emotional center of the play, sophisticated, smart, a professional in her work, grounded person who generally keeps her feeling in check but is capable of great anger, direct and clever

COLIN
Mid-30s to mid-40s, any ethnicity, cynical, the “rogue,” charming, great sense of humor, can be abrasive, unapologetic and combative, lonely and needy, has a great yearning for connection but is afraid to let his guard down

SHEILA
Mid-30s to mid-40s, any ethnicity, Colin’s wife, someone looking for a solution to her disordered and chaotic life, scattered (literally and figuratively), this quality is probably cute sometimes and impossible at others, emotionally needy, falls for David because she thinks he’s the “nice” one
