The age range of all characters is 50’s to 60’s. The director will be looking for actors who can portray characters as real people, not Southern caricatures.
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. A headshot and resume are not needed but you may bring them if you like.
CARLENE TRAVIS: (Lead-50s) A no-nonsense gal with dry wit. Married three times, and branded the “Black Widow of Eden Falls, Ga.” Crystal’s sister.
NITA MOONEY: (Lead-50s) A very sweet, simple country woman. Lives vicariously through romance novels and their storylines (which she has memorized).
MAVIS FLOWERS: (Lead-60s) Has been married over forty years to a husband who is oblivious to her and anything else he is not personally interested in. A kind-hearted woman that longs for more romance and attention in her marriage.
CRYSTAL HART: (Lead-50s) Daffy and lovable. Very creative, extroverted, and undaunted. Crystal regularly dresses in costume and sings her own lyrics to popular Christmas songs. *Actress playing this role must be able to sing confidently, but not necessarily perfectly.
SUGAR LEE THOMPKINS: (Lead-50s) The idea of a Southern woman. Dramatically attired in an explosion of color, Sugar Lee is vivacious, strong, and smart. It is her idea to turn the old church into a day spa
BUNNY SUTHERLAND: (Supporting-50s) Upbeat and seemingly pleasant, Bunny wears an ever-ready sunny smile all the while being deliciously judgmental and passive aggressive. The self-proclaimed social arbiter of Eden Falls.
BOBBY DWAYNE DILLAHUNT: (Supporting-50s) Unaware of his rugged good looks, Bobby Dwayne has a self-deprecating sense of humor and a charming manner. He dated Sugar Lee in high school and wanted to marry her.
PORTER PADGETT: (Supporting-50’s) A good hearted, gregarious blowhard. Porter doesn’t know when to shut up and tends to talk louder than most people. He really enjoys his own humor and has a big “horsey laugh.” Porter works for the post office and lives with his mother.
