The Cast calls for 11 males/females
The World of Sholom Aleichem is an ensemble piece of three intriguing, touching and sometimes hilarious stories of Jewish culture strung together by a narrator, the Mendele. The cast calls for 11 actors of various age, race, and gender. The play will be cast neutral in all of those categories and actors will be expected to play multiple roles. Women will play men, People in their 50s will play children, race will not be a factor in casting. Except for the narrator, there are no leading or minor roles.
Auditioners are expected to come and bring their ability to play anything in or out of their type. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script and casting will depend on your ability to match the type of character you are presented. Preference will be given to people who can stretch beyond one single type of play various characters with conviction.
