About

The Legend of Georgia McBride –

Casey is young, he’s broke, his landlord’s knocking at the door, and he just found out his wife is going to have a baby. Making things worse, Casey is fired from his gig as an Elvis impersonator at run-down, sink-hole Florida bar and replaced by a B-level drag show, but when one of the queens can’t go on, Casey steps into the spotlight.

Information about callbacks will be emailed separately.

For your audition please prepare: One or two of the following sides in relation to characters you are most interested in auditioning for.  SIDES CAN BE FOUND HERE

Character Breakdown – 

Casey – Male. 20s. White –  A charismatic young man struggling to support himself and his wife, Jo, as an Elivs impersonator. Good-natured but with a tendency to act without thinking. During the course of the show, he discovers his hidden talent for performing in drag as Georgia McBride.

Jo – Female. 20s. Black – A practical young woman who often struggles to keep herself and her husband, Casey, afloat when his lack of forethought impacts their finances. A hard worker and realist. During the course of the show, she reveals to Casey that she is pregnant and that they are going to be parents.

Tracy Mills – Any Gender. 30s-50s (Flexible). Any race/ethnicity –  Tracy is an elegant and seasoned drag queen. Professional, inventive, and quick-thinking. They can make a silk purse out of even the crummiest situation. They go by Bobby when not in a dress.
Jason / Rexy – Any Gender. 30s(Flexible). Any race/ethnicity, but ideally POC – This is a dual role. Jason is Casey and Jo’s landlord. Goofy, well-meaning. They struggle a little bit to “crack the whip” when Casey and Jo are late on rent due to their close friendship with Casey. Rexy is one of the drag performers that comes in to replace Casey’s Elvis act. A little bit of a hot mess; they are deeply proud of who they are, where they come from, and what drag means to them.
Eddie – Male. 50s (Flexible). Any race/ethnicity- The owner of the bar Cleo’s, the struggling dive bar with few customers, where Casey works. A little hot-headed and desperate to make his business a success. His business-first attitude belies a softer and more caring nature. He is also Tracy’s family and brings Tracy’s act in when he decides to cut Casey’s Elvis Impersonator show.

We are currently adhering to the following procedures:

We Are Operating As A Fully Vaccinated Cast – Those auditioning will be asked to present your vaccination card at the time of entry and sign-in.

As we are a place of community gathering and artistic excellence, we will be following the AEA guidelines for our productions, and have chosen to produce our shows as a fully vaccinated adult company. By fully vaccinated, we mean that adults will be two weeks post second vaccination (or Johnson & Johnson vaccine) by the start of rehearsals. As a result, we will only be offering roles to adults who are vaccinated or who plan / are willing to be vaccinated before the start of rehearsals. Medical exemption information is included below.

For audition purposes –

1) If you have not been fully vaccinated at the time of the auditions – but are willing / intend to be vaccinated if cast – you can submit your callback sides via video submission 1b) If you are unvaccinated due to health reasons, you can submit you’re audition sides via video submission along with medical certification of the exemption. If cast under the exemption, the expectation will be to test weekly and provide a negative test at the start of the rehearsal week each week.

2) If you are fully vaccinated by the time of the audition date, please bring your vaccination card (or photo of card) with you and present it at the time of check-in.

2b)  If you are vaccinated but out-of-town and cannot make this auditions, please send a video of your sides along with proof of vaccination.

Most importantly, if you are sick or are feeling ill, please do not attend the auditions.  Let us know, take care of yourself, and send a video.
