AEA and non-union contracts are available starting at $500/wk.
Available Roles are detailed below:
TONY (Age 25-40) is the likable, flamboyant, irrepressible proprietor of the Shear Madness salon. He is fun, devilish, and interested in everything and everyone, but never jaded in any way. His "shoot from the hip" comedy must endear him to all. Should be good at physical comedy and love "playing to an audience". Enjoys sharing gossip, swapping recipes and dramatizing moments of his life. He is rapid-fire fun.
EDDIE (Age 30-55) is a well-dressed nice-looking confidence man who covers a dangerous interior with a smooth, suave, and occasionally charming exterior. Often the "villain" of the piece he must have a great sense of comedy as well.
MRS. SHUBERT (Age 45-75) is an old-money socialite of impeccable breeding and manner. She can turn on the charm when she needs to and at her finest is a class act who looks good and moves well. She is used to wielding power. Must have her hair cut to specifications and then washed and blown out at every performance.
MIKEY (Age 23-30) is an eager-beaver high energy preppy/geek who is a capable, earnest, younger partner to Nick. Fresh out of a local junior college studying criminology he is a likeable go-getter. Must have his hair washed and blown dry every performance.
