North Fork Community Theater will hold auditions for the production of the musical, First Date on August 1 and 2 at 7 p.m. with callbacks on August 8 at 8 p.m. Performances will take place Thursdays through Sundays from October 13 through October 30.
Music and comedy come together in the story of Aaron and Casey, a couple on a blind date at a New York restaurant. As the evening unfolds, other patrons transform into the couple’s family members, friends and exes – each one throwing their two cents in.
Ages 16 and up can audition. Prepare a song from a show or an upbeat musical theatre song. Please bring a head shot and resume if you have one. Be prepared to improvise as well.
Man #1 (Jewish Chorus / Gabe / Youtube / Edgy British Guy) – 25-40 look; Male, any ethnicity. GABE is the mega dude/womanizer. Has every answer to every question about women that has ever been asked. And probably has a catch phrase to go with that answer. Aaron’s best friend since childhood. EDGY ROCKER/BRITISH GUY are bad boys from Casey’s past. Cocky and neglectful, they are overcompensating. Baritenor range.
Woman #1 (Grandma Ida / Lauren / Facebook / Female with Megaphone #2 / Aarons Mother) – 25-40 look, Female, belt/mix with soprano. Casey’s sister, LAUREN is happily (somewhat) married to her highly successful husband, Kevin, and wonders out loud why Casey can’t break her bad habits and learn how to catch a winner. Constantly trying to fix Casey, Lauren is more concerned with listening to her own advice than actually helping her sister. GRANDMA IDA is Aaron’s dead grandmother, who feels strongly that her son should marry a Jewish woman.
Man #2 (Reggie / Aarons Future Son / Instagram / Edgy Rocker Guy) – Late 20s-30s look. Male, tenor. REGGIE is Casey’s fabulously fierce gay and over-imaginative best friend. Easily sent into a tailspin of jealousy, paranoia, and drama. EDGY ROCKER/BRITISH GUY are bad boys from Casey’s past. Cocky and neglectful, they are overcompensating.
Woman #2 (Jewish Chorus / Allison / Google Girl / Female with Megaphone #1) – 25-35 look, female. Aaron’s ex-fiancé. Gorgeous, sexy, uptight, conservative, controlling, manipulative. Must have great belt and some soprano.
Man #3 (Waiter / Caseys Christian Father / Blaze/ Twitter / Friendly Therapist) – 35-60 look, male, baritenor. A career waiter, who dabbles with songwriting and performing on the side. A romantic. He wants nothing more than for love to blossom in his restaurant. A closet poet as well. CASEY’s CHRISTIAN FATHER is a stereotype super-Christian, praising the Easter Bunny and denouncing Judaism.
Aaron – late 20s-30s look. Male. Tenor. New Yorker. Jewish investment banker. He has never been on a blind date before. Out of his element, nervous, and trying way too hard.
Casey – Late 20s-30s look, female. Great belt/mix voice. Daring, bold, and delightfully controversial. All as a defense mechanism.
