Auditioning for The Rainmaker by N. Richard Nash. Directed by Joanie McElroy. Audition dates are June 10 at 2:00 and June 11 at 7:00. If necessary, call backs will be held June 13.
Looking for six males and one female. Character descriptions are as follows:
The Curry family lives on a cattle ranch in West Texas around the turn of the 20th century; there is a severe drought which is threatening their once lucrative livelihood. The love between these family members is evident although not always adequately expressed. All characters will speak with a Western accent.
H.C. Curry - patriarch of the family; widowed; concerned about the fate of his ranch and his family
Noah Curry - older son; sensible, at times skeptical; keeper of the accounts
Jim Curry - younger son; full of life; tends to get carried away
Lizzie Curry - only daughter; intelligent, witty, practical; can be a bit of a romantic although she is starting to think she'll never find love; has assumed matriarch role of the family, most of whom would like to see her married
File: deputy sheriff; secretly divorced but tells everyone he's widowed; can be a hot-head; secretly attracted to Lizzie
Sheriff - middle aged; sensible sheriff type; comic relief
Starbuck - charismatic and charming "snake-oil salesman"; promises to bring rain for $100; helps Lizzie discover her true beauty
