OPEN CALL!! So, y’all git yerselves on down to The Pearl Theater!
Christmas Belles by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wootn.
Directed by: Vince Tortorice

Sunday, October 9 & Monday October 10, 7:00pm to 10:00pm

The Story:

A church Christmas program spins hilariously out of control in this Southern farce about squabbling sisters, family secrets, a surly Santa, a vengeful sheep and a reluctant Elvis impersonator.
It's Christmas-time in the small town of Fayro, Texas, and the Futrelle Sisters—Frankie, Twink and Honey Raye—are not exactly in a festive mood. A cranky Frankie is weeks overdue with her second set of twins. Twink, recently jilted and bitter about it, is in jail for inadvertently burning down half the town. And hot-flash-suffering Honey Raye is desperately trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb's Christmas Program from spiraling into chaos. But things are not looking too promising: Miss Geneva, the ousted director of the previous twenty-seven productions, is ruthless in her attempts to take over the show. The celebrity guest Santa Claus—played by Frankie's long-suffering husband, Dub—is passing a kidney stone. One of the shepherds refuses to watch over his flock by night without pulling his little red wagon behind him. And the entire cast is dropping like flies due to food poisoning from the Band Boosters' Pancake Supper. And when Frankie lets slip a family secret that has been carefully guarded for decades, all hope for a successful Christmas program seems lost, even with an Elvis impersonator at the manger. But in true Futrelle fashion, the feuding sisters find a way to pull together in order to present a Christmas program the citizens of Fayro will never forget. Their hilarious holiday journey through a misadventure-filled Christmas Eve is guaranteed to bring joy to your world!

Gina Jo (G.J.) Dubberly, Frankie and Dub’s daughter, 20’s. Guileless and enthusiastic, she is your typical Daisy Duke sort of girl.

Raynerd Chisum, adult male. Part-time employee at The Dairy Dog, very simple and earnest, always speaks from the heart.

The Series

E-Mail Headshots and Resume to:

SEASON ONE CASTING CALL

TRANSFOLK is an upcoming web series about a diverse group of transgender friends as they face the complexities of life, with the added struggles that come with being who they are.

At least for the first season, this project is non-paying, with the hopes that in future seasons we will be able to raise enough funds to compensate our cast and crew. Craft service will be provided every day of filming.

CAST OF CHARACTERS:

SERIES REGULARS:

Shannyn Archer – Male to Female, Early 40's, Caucasian. Shannyn is the den mother to her girls (and boys). In her old life she was married to Beth and they had a son together named Aiden. Since their divorce and Shannyn's transition, Shannyn was married to a gay bar owner named Andrew for 7 years. Andrew passed away of cancer a year ago and left the bar to Shannyn in his will. Shannyn has had a years long rivalry with Felina Leblanc who was Andrew's ex girlfriend. She is best friends with Piper DeLauro.
(Role Has Been Cast)

Piper DeLauro – Male to Female, Early 30's, Caucasian. Piper is shy but can be a firecracker when need be. She is the manager of her best friend Shannyn's bar, and enters into a complicated relationship with the barback, Caleb.
(Role Has Been Cast)

Neveah Skye – Male to Female, Early 30's, African American. Neveah is a hot headed diva who will fight for the people she cares about. She presents herself as a strong willed, on top of it woman, but her hard exterior hides an extremely soft interior. Her break up with her long time boyfriend leads her down the wrong road.
(Role Has Been Cast)

Logan Pierce – Female to Male transgender character, mid to late 30's, Caucasian. Short dark hair, somewhat heavyset. Logan is an elementary school teacher whose contract is not renewed for the new school year due to his transition. He begins a relationship with a former co-worker that takes a turn he could never have seen coming.

Cierra Sifuentes – Male to Female transgender character, 19 years old, Hispanic. Short dark hair, thin. Cierra is just realizing who she is and is just now beginning her transition. This causes major problems with her family. Her life long best friend is Bailey who is a year younger than her, and is also a Male to Female transwoman farther along in her transition.

GUEST CAST:

Bailey Smithson – Male to Female transgender character, 18 years old, Caucasian. Long blonde hair (a wig can be used, but real hair is preferable), thin, very passable for female. Bailey is a super confident, passable transwoman. She's hot and she knows it! She's the outgoing, carefree opposite to her bestie Cierra.

Felina Leblanc – Male to Female transgender, early 40's, Caucasian. Felina is the long time rival of Shannyn Archer. She is the town !&#$! to most, but there is a reason for the way she is.
(Role Has Been Cast)

Caleb Summers – Male, Age 25-33, Caucasian, any hair/eye color. Straight guy Caleb gets involved in a complicated romantic relationship with transwoman Piper DeLauro.

Beth Duncan – Female, Late 30's Early 40's, Caucasian, any hair/eye color. Ex-wife of Shannyn Archer. They have a teenage son together. Beth is a strong, occasionally sarcastic character. Strong willed and nurturing.

Aiden Milstead – Male, 14-16 years old, Caucasian, any hair/eye color. Teenage son of Shannyn Archer and Beth Duncan, stepson to Paul Duncan.

Theresa Reynolds – Female, Late 30's Early 40's, Caucasian, red or brown hair, plus size. Theresa is a teacher who worked with Logan and later forms a relationship with him despite being married, but that is hardly the darkest secret she is keeping.

Georgia Smithson – Female, Late 40's, Caucasian, short blonde hair, plus size, southern accent. Georgia is the oh so lovable mother of Bailey who completely accepts and understands her transgender daughter and all transgender people. The kind of character that when you meet the actress that plays her you just want to give her a big hug.

Vivian “Vi” Murdoch – Female, Early 30's, Caucasian. A thin, “pixie-like” woman with a bubbly, life of the party personality and a sweet smile that hides her internal battle with drug abuse. Best friend of Piper DeLauro since high school and new friend and bad influence on Neveah Skye who currently battles a drug addiction.

Rosalie Sifuentes – Female, Early 40's, Hispanic. Cierra and Lydia's mother who doesn't understand her son's identity when he comes out as trans, but since her children are more important than anything she will do what it takes to keep her family together.

Ernesto Sifuentes – Male, Late 40's, Hispanic. Cierra and Lydia's father, a hot tempered man who had his whole life planned out and worked hard to make that happen. He has the hardest of times accepting that his son is transgender and seems to do everything wrong by her despite the fact that he loves his children and his family completely.

Byron Fuller – Male, Late 20's, African American. Byron is the ex-boyfriend of Neveah Skye and is a drug dealer, which leads Neveah to curiously trying cocaine, leading her down her dark path.

All characters are funny in a smart way. They are people who watch 30 Rock, not Two and a Half Men. All actors need to be able to handle comedy and drama, often in the same beat.
Derek: Late 20s-mid 30s. Has a kindness and openness to him. He's the bridge for the family.
Ryan: 30s. He is funny and quick. He's bright and his energy is infectious. He is gay. His humor is an easy part of him. He's funny, not !&#$!y.
John: late 30s-early 40s. He is the most serious and conservative of the brothers but he's still funny and quick.
Mom: late 50s- 60s she is at all times able to keep up with her sons. It is obvious they come from her. She is tired in that way that people who are always right are tired.

Open auditions for “WINTER WONDERETTES” at Island ETC


Island ETC (East-End Theatre Company) is pleased to announce open auditions for our upcoming production of the new 60’s holiday musical WINTER WONDERETTES. Auditions will be held on Sunday and Monday, September 11th and 12th at 7:00pm both evenings. Auditions will be held at ETC, 2317 Mechanic Street in Galveston. Call-backs (if needed) will be held by invitation only on Wednesday, September 14th at 7:00pm.

Rehearsal’s for Roger Bean’s WINTER WONDERETTES will begin Wednesday, October 5th. Rehearsals are held Sundays through Thursdays from 7:00pm to 10:00pm. Performances are November 18 through December 10. (Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 8:00pm. There is one Sunday matinee on November 20th at 2:30pm. There will be no performance on Thursday, November 24 due to Thanksgiving.) Kim Mytelka (ETC artistic director) is directing this fun-filled show. Musical Director is Eduardo Guzman and choreographer is Jennifer Daugherty.

Those Marvelous Wonderettes are back! This seasonal celebration finds the girls entertaining at the annual Harper’s Hardware Holiday Party. When Santa turns up missing, the girls use their talent and creative ingenuity to save the holiday party? Featuring great 60’s versions of holiday classics such as “Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” “Run, Rudolph, Run,” and “Winter Wonderland,” the result is, of course, marvelous! This is a high energy and fun production with roles for four fantastic women!

All roles are open! New faces and voices are always welcome. All ethnicities are welcome and urged to attend. All actors will receive a production stipend at the end of the run.

Those auditioning are asked to bring a prepared song with sheet music. An accompanist will be provided. (No a cappella or recordings.) The director prefers an up-beat piece that best demonstrates your vocal range and your ability to ‘sell’ the number. Also, bring comfortable clothing and shoes for the dance portion of the audition. (Singers don’t get nervous; this show is 60’s girl group style movement.) An updated headshot and resume is requested. Actors will be asked to share a 1 to 2 minute funny story about themselves, as well as participate in cold readings.





Roles:

BETTY JEAN – She is the self-anointed clown of the group. Betty Jean now works in Corporate Sales at Harper’s Hardware and is very proud of that fact. She loves that she is finally in charge of the group even if only for this one performance. She is recently separated from her high school sweetheart. She is strong and doesn’t wallow in self-pity.
Alto with strong low range.

CINDY LOU – She is the ‘bad girl’ of the group. She is sexy with a dry and sassy wit. Cindy Lou has an incredible soft side and inner depth.
Mezzo Soprano with belt. Sings lead on many songs.

MISSY – Missy is the overachiever of the group. She is the peacemaker, always ready to jump in and save the day. She has an inner sexiness (even slightly kinky) that comes out every once in a while, much to her surprise and embarrassment.
Soprano with belt. Floats very high vocals.

SUZY – Suzy is happy-go-lucky, a little giddy, a little silly, and a little pregnant. She finds great pleasure in everything she does; the sillier it is, the more fun she finds it. Her pregnancy has brought out her attention-deficit disorder, and she reverts to her childhood on the drop of a dime.
Mezzo Alto with big belt.

I'm Curt Miller, a professional Illusionist based in Houston. I perform a large-scale magic show for Corporate Events, and I'm looking for a few helpers with upcoming shows. The first upcoming show is in September 28 at the Houston Hyatt downtown. The gigs pay $200 each.

This is a fun and relatively easy gig! Here's a typical scenario: We meet at the venue in the afternoon, unload a few things from the trailer and set up the pipe & drape, spotlight, sound system and props. We have a lovely dinner with the clients, do the show, then pack up and that's it! Sometimes I'll ask you to meet me at my house first to help load or unload props. It's a comedy show, and we are very easy to work with.

I book quite a few of these gigs (especially around the Holidays), so I'm looking for a collection of great people I can put on my list. You need to be extremely trustworthy, hardworking, reliable, and have integrity. If you don't have these four qualities, please don't contact me. If this is you, I'd love to hear from you. I'll promise you'll have fun!

Hope to see you Monday!
