    We are looking for actors with professional musical theatre experience to audition. Non-equity talent is welcome to audition, however by agreement with Actors’ Equity Association, Equity members must be given audition priority over non-union talent.

Singers: Have 2 songs prepared (one upbeat/one ballad). Please bring sheet music in your appropriate key, accompanist will not transpose. Songs from the show are welcome.

BRING A RESUME AND HEADSHOT. Starlight Theatre is actively seeking a multi-cultural cast and utilizes non-traditional casting in their productions when ethnicity is not germane to the role or overall production.

FIRST DATE Character Breakdown:
Aaron—Late 20s-30s, Male. Tenor. Jewish investment banker. He has never been on a blind date before. Out of his element, nervous, and trying way too hard. Must have great comic timing.

Casey—Late 20s-30s, Female. Great belt/mix voice. Daring, bold, and delightfully controversial. All as a defense mechanism. Must have great comic timing.

Female Character Roles (1 or 2 actors to play the following roles, late 20s to 40)

    Grandma Ida
    Grandma Ida is Aaron's dead grandmother, who feels strongly that her son should marry a Jewish woman.

    Casey's sister, Lauren is happily (somewhat) married to her highly successful husband, Kevin, and wonders out loud why Casey can't break her bad habits and learn how to catch a winner. Constantly trying to fix Casey, Lauren is more concerned with listening to her own advice than actually helping her sister.

    Allison is Aaron's ex-fiance. Gorgeous, sexy, uptight, conservative, controlling, manipulative. Belt/mix with soprano.

    Google Girl
    Female with Megaphone
    Aaron’s Mother

Male Character Roles (2 or 3 actors, late 20s to 40, will be cast to play the following roles)

    Casey's fabulously fierce gay and over-imaginative best friend. Easily sent into a tailspin of jealousy, paranoia, and drama.

    Gabe is a mega dude/womanizer. Has every answer to every question about women that has ever been asked. And probably has a catch phrase to go with that answer. Aaron's best friend since childhood.

    Rocker Guy/British Guy
    Bad boys from Casey's past. Cocky, neglectful, and overcompensating. Baritenor range.

    A career waiter, who dabbles with songwriting and performing on the side. A romantic. He wants nothing more than for love to blossom in his restaurant. A closet poet as well.

    Casey’s Christian Father
    Casey's Christian Father is a stereotype super-Christian, praising the Easter Bunny and denouncing Judaism.

    Aaron’s Future Son
    Friendly Therapist
