Mansfield Playhouse announces auditions for “Daddy’s Dyin’ Who’s Got The Will?” by Del Shores on September 24 & 25 at 7:00 PM.
3 men/5 women are needed for this 2nd Stage Comedy.
Sara Lee Turnover, 36, the middle sister. Twenty pounds overweight, the town beautician, sports a bleached beehive. Single and still lives at home. Strong-willed and has a wonderful sense of humor.
Lurlene Turnover Rogers, 42, the oldest sister. A preacher’s wife and elementary school teacher. Attractive, stylish, very Christian – but she has a bite.
Mama Wheelis, 80, the Turnover children’s grandmother. She’s feisty, speaks her mind, and rules the household.
Evalita Turnover, 35, the youngest sister. Six-times married, loves to shock her family. She was a beauty- and still is from a distance. Has a worn look about her. A wounded soul.
Harmony Rhodes, 36, Evalista’s lastest fiancé. A musician and vegetarian. Attractive, tan, off-beat, long curly hair. Looks like Jesus with earrings. Has a past.
Orville Turnover, 38, the brother. Fat, abusive, unhappy and mean. A redneck trash collector.
Buford “Daddy” Turnover, 67, the father. A stroke victim. Partially paralyzed on his left side, but can walk with a slight limp. Has occasional moments of coherency.
Marlene Turnover, 36, Orville’s wife. Temporarily overweight. A constant victim of Orville’s abuse. However,, losing sixty-two pounds can boost a girl’s confidence.
THE STORY: When the family patriarch falls ill, his children gather around trying to find out who will make good in his will. Sibling rivalries explode as vastly different personalities clash. This portrait of a dysfunctional Southern family is touching, humorous and surprising. It may even make your own family seem …well…normal!
