Have that acting “bug?” Come audition for our next play!
The Velvet Cake War is a delightful comedy about 3 Southern cousins, who could not have picked a worse time to throw their family reunion. Things spin out of control when a neighbor’s pet devours everything edible, a one-eyed suitor shows up to declare his love, and a jaw-dropping high-stakes wager is made on who bakes the best red velvet cake. As this romp barrels toward its uproarious climax, you’ll wish your own family reunions were this much fun! We are casting the following characters:
Cee Cee Windham: The sassy & stylish hostess of Hospitality House, a low-budget cable access show.
Gaynelle Verdeen Bodeen:. A cousin one frazzled nerve away from a meltdown.
LaMerle Verdeen Minshew: The well-dressed, self-serving, sharp-tongued matriarch of the Verdeens.
Aubrey Verdeen:The good-natured uncle, and oxygen-dependent patriarch of the family.
Jimmie Wyvette Verdeen: The rough-around the edges store manager cousin who has eyes for the newest widower in town.
Peaches Verdeen Belrose: A saucy firebrand cousin and the #1 mortuarial cosmetologist
Newt Blayloc: A high-energy true Texas eccentric with a patch over one eye.
Bitsy Hargis: The dog-owning neighbor.
Sheriff Grover Lout: The Sheriff with a bad attitude and mirrored shades.
Elsa Dowdall: A stern, European-born and ultra efficient court-appointed psychologist.
Mama Doll Hargis: A lacey-dressed little old lady in cowboy boots.
Purvis Verdeen: Cousin with flashy plaid pants pulled up almost to his armpits.
