Upcoming Actor Auditions
The Last Night of Ballyhoo
Monday & Tuesday, March 3rd & 4th from 7:00pm – 9:00pm at TheatreWorks
From the author who penned Driving Miss Daisy comes this funny and moving tale. It's Atlanta, 1939. Hitler has conquered Poland, Gone with the Wind is about to premiere, and Adolph Freitag, his sister Boo, and nieces Lala and Sunny can't wait for Ballyhoo - the social event of the year for Atlanta's elitist German-Jewish community. Adolph's new employee Joe Farkas seems an attractive eligible bachelor, but is a Jew of Eastern European descent deemed unacceptable to some members of the Freitag family. Unexpected romantic, touching, and comedic events unfold as the characters face where they come from and who they really are in this 1998 Tony Award-winner for Best Play.
Adolph Freitag (Late 40's)
Businessman. Nice, down-to-earth, sentimental guy, with dry sense of humor. Patient and stoic in antic household of four females.
Boo (Beulah ) Freitag – Adolph's sister (Late 40's, maybe early 50's)
Fussy, controlling, slightly sarcastic. Obsessed with status. Not a witch, but definitely a difficult lady.
Reba Freitag – Adolph and Boo's sister-in-law; widow of their brother (Mid 40's)
Gentle, quietly observant but capable of sudden, dizzy and hilarious observations.
Lala Levy – Boo's daughter (early 20's)
Hyper, immature perhaps even a ninny. She lives in a dream world.
Sunny Freitag – Reba daughter (early 20's)
Attractive and self-assured, she is akin to her Uncle Adolph in worldly outlook and philosophy of life.
Joe Farkas (Late 20's)
New York guy whose coping, street smarts have been fairly smoothed over. Intelligent and compassionate - he's very sensitive to the world around him.
Peachy Weil (Mid 20's)
Goofy, immature collegiate, rah-rah type with few subtle attributes. Little understanding of the world he lives in.
