Available Roles

  • Bonnie Kapica- late 30s to late 40s. A simple housewife who has her life upended by her husband in the opening scene. She is the hostess for the Tupperware party. Think Sally Field type character.
  • Richard Kapica- Bonnie's husband. He is a man's man who goes bowling, drinks, has lodge meetings, and looks at all the pretty girls.
  • Jean Pawlicki- strong and elegant. 30s-40s. She is wealthy and tender. However, she is extremely able to get hostile when pushed. She is mortified by her sister Sinclair.
  • Sinclair Benevente- Jean's sister. 30s-40s She is 8 months pregnant, trashy, drunk, with no filter. This character drives the other characters to their revelations so it must be a very strong actress who isn't afraid to be vile onstage. She describes herself onstage as girl that guys didn't find it easy to look at, but easy to find in the sack. Think Melissa McCarthy with a hard bite to her.
  • Tracy Ann McClain- 21-27ish. She is youthful, naiive. Beautiful. Sweet. And hysterical. This character must have impeccable abilities to tell long stories and get all the punchlines. Think of a young version of Rose from the Golden Girls. An Iowa farm girl.
  • Diane Whettlaufer- 40s she is the regional Tupperware saleswoman. She must appear plastic and false and really break down those barriers in the play. She has a tremendous amount to hide.

Audition Requirements

  • Please bring a detailed list of rehearsal conflicts for June and July.
  • Please bring a headshot or recent photo, if possible.

Synopsis

The time: 1968. The place: a Tupperware party. 5 women with concealed home lives drink a little too much alcohol and hilarity ensues. This play is both hysterical and tremendously touching. One critic wrote, "a knock-down, drag out, soul baring, bra-burning frenzy of self-discovery."

"A Raucous Comedy!" - Associated Press

"It makes its audiences loopy with giddiness." - theatremania.com
