The Kitchen Witches

Director Christy Morris will hold auditions for the modern comedy, The Kitchen Witches by Caroline Smith. November 10, 11, and 12, 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.

This hilarious play tells the story of two rival cable television cooks thrown together on one show. If they got along well they wouldn't have such great ratings that outshine Jerry Springer and Martha Stewart.

The characters are:

Dolly Biddle: a 50ish little cherub of a woman, prone to overweight but always going at top speed. She indulges herself with anything life has to offer whenever possible - even if it's not good for her - and her creative imagination knows no bounds. She is intensely proud of her son Stephen, loves to dispense advice along with recipes for cabbage rolls and borscht and hates Isobel Lomax with the intensity usually reserved for detonating nuclear devices.

Stephen Biddle: a nervous, decent young man who actually enjoys producing low-budget cable TV shows, even when it's his Mom who's the star. He is 30ish, bright, and capable, if somewhat shy, but always reluctant to confront Dolly on her many shortcomings. He's not a fighter - he'd rather be a lover, but nobody's asked him yet.

Isobel Lomax: thinks Martha Stewart could learn something about homemaking from her. She trained at the Cordon Bleu and enjoyed a successful career, including her own show "Busy Izzy". Isobel likes people to think she has a much classier background than reality supports. At heart, she is a bright, funny and articulate woman who has come to terms with the choices she made early in life.

Bert the camera person: (can also be cast as a woman) the production assistant from the "Getting Our Kids Off the Street" program. He/She cleans up the sets, resets props, carries the portable camera around during the show and generally is extremely efficient and precise. He/She is probably the most sensible person in the show.

Production dates will be January 8, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, and 25, 2015.
