AUDITION: THE MEDICINE GOES DOWN

I am looking for 4 females (30’s – 60’s) and a boy (7-9) for a short film that will be shot over a 2 day period between October 19th and the 23rd.  Two roles are only a day shoot.   Please read the logline and character descriptions below.  If you are interested then please go to   urbangraceb.wixsite.com/themedicinegoesdown to read script, fill out and submit your audition.  All experience levels considered.

THE MEDICINE GOES DOWN – Character Descriptions And Logline

LOGLINE: A recent divorcee and her struggling young son reconnect over her favorite kid’s film, Mary Poppins. But the mom’s desire to shield her son from the harsh realities of life through the movie has unexpected results.

MARY (mid 30’s) – Sweat as honey and cute as a button – she’s like a little munchkin. Even when she is trying to be stern, it’s hard to take her seriously. She has a hard time really speaking ill of anyone. She has an idealistic viewpoint and was very imaginative when growing up.

JACOB (7-9) – Son of Mary. Currently depressed due to father leaving. And now he has to go to public school so his mom can work. He’s got A.D.D. and a huge imagination.

JANE (early 40’s) – Mary’s older half sister. She’s down to earth and not as idealistic or sweet as Mary. She loves to tease her sister, but not in a mean way – it’s all in fun.

DESTINY (mid 30’s) – Best friend to Mary. Where Mary is sweet and idealistic, Destiny is sassy and realistic. She gets her job done and then enjoys life. She loves to flirt, and date, and knows how to bring on the sexy. She’s not as enamored with the idea of marriage as Mary is.

MRS. JOHNSON (50’s -60’s) – Always put together and looking ready to face the world. She doesn’t seem to have a silly side. But we find out differently in the movie.
