In a small Alabama town in the year 1900, a southern family’s selfish pursuit of the American Dream ends up destroying them and those they love. Three siblings — the manipulative Regina, the cruel and arrogant Oscar, and the possessive Benjamin — have decided to partner together to increase their already substantial, ill-gotten wealth. But Regina’s terminally ill husband, Horace, refuses to give them the money they need. In the end, blood and money mix with money coming out on top, leaving a broken family behind.

Casting Requirements:

PLEASE NOTE: This production will audition earlier than usual to allow for the construction of the many period costumes needed. This will also allow time for everyone to plan for conflicts as much as possible!

(While participation in FutureFest will not necessarily prevent you from being cast, obviously the fewer conflicts the better!)

THE LITTLE FOXES takes place in the south and Southern accents will be used. While not required for auditions, any attempt will be appreciated.

  • Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.
  • A résumé and headshot are not required but are appreciated.
  • Please provide a list of all known conflicts between June 6 and Sep 2, 2018, including weekends.
  • Director’s note: I would like to have an idea of whether we could start blocking some scenes in June — although rehearsals will not start in earnest until July 9th.
