2019 Audition Sides
(Male: 40-50) The stage manager who, unfortunately has to step in at the last minute to play the
role of the Inspector. Most of the time he is lost as he is just trying to remember his lines and
figure out what to do when the ladies keep messing up on stage.
(Female: 30-45) The classic prima donna! Thelma always wants to be the ingénue; she loves the
focus and attention of the limelight. Ironically, she overacts and isn't good at memorizing her lines.
For example, she is the perpetual winner of the annual Miss Farndale competition because she raises a
fit if she isn't. She is moody and will pout and get upset when things don't go her way.
She is younger than Mrs. Reece and Audrey. She is usually second in command - only because Audrey and
Felicity are hopelessly inept.
(Female: 25-35) The youngest of the Farndale ladies. Felicity is a bit shy and nervous, a definite follower
and team player, hardworking and tries her best to be helpful. She tries to keep the show together as it is
falling apart, but her ideas aren't very clever. She really is not interested in being in the show.
The only reason she agrees to be in the play is because she was promised to be the killer.
(Female: 45-60) The oldest of the group, but around the same age as Mrs. Reese. Audrey is sweet and kind but
does not like to have any leadership responsibilities. She is a bit on the forgetful and unfocused side.
She seems to be unaware as to what is happening around her, especially onstage. She plays a variety of
characters of smaller roles, but the characters all seem to be the same.
(Female: 45-60) The leader and second eldest of the Farndale Avenue ladies.
She is friendly and cheerful, but definite likes to be in charge and play the important roles.
Her job is to interact with the audience as an emcee. She always tries to maintains proper control
and etiquette but will jump in quickly to try and fix mistakes, even while she is onstage.
She has a tendency to forget her props and will go offstage to get them
