Theatre Unchained is seeking performers to audition for the Milwaukee premier of The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical. Four women and two men are needed for this holiday sequel to the wildly popular Great American Trailer Park Musical, which we produced a few years ago to sold out houses. Auditions take place Monday, November 17th from 6pm to 10pm. Actors will be seen on a first come, first served basis. Performances of The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical will be at Theatre Unchained, 1024 S 5th Street in Milwaukee, Dec 12 – 28. Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 6pm. Rehearsals will begin immediately after the show has been cast and will be primarily held on weeknights.
Please prepare a song (contemporary musical theatre or country rock style is suggested) and provide sheet music for the accompanist. You will also be asked to read from sides of the script and should dress comfortably in case you are asked to stay for the dance portion of the audition. Please contact James at jimmydrag@yahoo.com or (414) 391-7145 with questions.
The following roles are available:
Darlene – late 20s to late 30s. A year-round “Scrooge” who hates everybody and everything. But underneath her hard exterior is a wounded girl who once believed in true love and Christmas magic.
Rufus- late 20s to late 30s. Darlene’s neighbor. Best described as a redneck with a heart of gold. Spends most of his downtime fashioning “art” out of found objects like empty beer cans.
Jackson “Jackie” Boudreaux – 40-50 something. A self-made man and an all-American success story. Owner of the thriving local “breastaurant” chain. Unapologetically capitalistic.
Betty- 38-50 something. Armadillo Acres leasing manager. Part hard-ass, part mother hen. Grounded, earthy and dry-witted.
Linoleum – 30s to early 40s. A death row widow having trouble moving on. Spent some time in the ’80s on tour with famed and not-so-famed rockers. The fieriest of all the “girls.”
Pickles- late teens to early 20s. Single mom. New to motherhood. Often tired but still embraces the joy of the holiday season. Airy, wide-eyed and a devout believer in Santa Claus. She is the most airy and wide-eyed.
