“A Lot Like Marriage” is about a young couple who invite both sets of parents to a cabin for the Christmas holidays.
The following characters still need to be cast:
-Sally (47-52) 70 pages – Gasp! Sigh! If Sally’s in the scene, all eyes should be on her; love and craziness vie for dominance; Shakespearean stage training an asset (for various monologues)
-Gordon (47-52) 65 pages – a charming, sexy, powerful man; his allure comes from his immense self-confidence, although the sight of Sally cuts him down to size.
-Eliot (55) 15 pages – a family man, temporarily taken leave of his sense and sensibility.
-Fern - (18-21, female) 10 pages – bald, butch, heterosexual (to everyone’s surprise).
-Eric (18-21) two pages (voice only) – a frat guy.
-Eliot's date (40-50) one page – the other woman
-Adriana (5-9) one page – talkative; drawing ability an asset
There's some sexual content, but the filmmakers are aiming for a PG-13 rating.
Those interested in the casting call are asked to record themselves telling a joke as if they were in character.
Submissions should be posted to Vimeo or YouTube (password protected is fine, just send in the password), and send the link, resume and headshot (as attachments) to [email protected].
The deadline for submissions is Jan. 15.
Auditions will take place Jan. 19 in Sudbury.
