Casting Call for Role of Jervis Pendleton in DADDY LONG LEGS at Sunset Players

SSP_logoThe Sunset Players community theater group and director Allen Lindsey will hold open auditions for the role of Jervis Pendelton for their spring show DADDY LONG LEGS, a musical by Paul Gordon and John Caird. The role of Jerusha Abbott has already been cast.

Synopsis:
Jerusha Abbott is the “Oldest Orphan in the John Grier Home” until a mysterious benefactor decides to send her to college to be educated as a writer. Required to write him a letter once a month, she is never to know the benefactor’s identity – so she invents one for him: Daddy Long Legs. Although she knows that he will never respond to her letters, she grows more and more fond of this elusive and kindly “old” gentleman. But another relationship soon begins to develop in Jerusha’s life. Jervis Pendleton is the well-do-do, “youngish” uncle of one of Jerusha’s roommates, and he introduces her to a world of literature, travel and adventure. Through her correspondence with Daddy Long Legs and her growing intimacy with Jervis, Jerusha’s letters chronicle her emergence as a delightfully independent “New American Woman.” Yet, there is one startling fact that Jerusha has yet to uncover – a fact that will change her life forever.

Auditions by Appointment Only:
Please contact director Allen Lindsey, alindsey@gmail.com, (513) 582-7512 to arrange an audition. Conflicts, rehearsal schedule, etc. will be addressed at that time.
