Auditions: Flesh Wounds

Six characters are needed for Jessica Messenger’s production of Flesh Wounds, the Old Mill Theatre’s second production of 2012 from March 9 to 24. Auditions are being held from 9am to 5pm, Sunday, December 11, at the theatre. It’s a multi-character drama with live music exploring the nature of relationships, spirituality and how people deal with their own sense of brokenness.

This is an opportunity to take part in an exciting, original full-length production by a local playwright and a chance to sink your teeth into some seriously juicy roles. There will be a more collaborative creative process involved with this production, focusing on workshopping and in-depth character development


JACOB: Male, 20-30. Jacob, a struggling musician and addict in recovery is looking for his big break. Charming, charismatic and a little creepy, must be able to sing and play guitar competently.

CAMERON: Male, 30 (stage age). Cameron, a conservative Christian is coming to terms with his homosexual feelings and what that means to his faith.

KAYLA: Female, 18-22 (stage age). Kayla, a high school drop-out is pregnant, alone and unemployed. She is a bit rough around the edges but expressive and determined.

TARA: Female, Mid-to-late 20s. Tara is Cameron’s kid sister and works with Sam. Quirky, unconventional with a good sense of humour and a close relationship with her older brother.

PAUL: Male, 30s. Smooth, charming and good looking. Paul is Cameron’s love interest.

SAM: Female, 20s. A very talented singer/songwriter/musician struggling with a traumatic past and a bad case of stage fright. We are auditioning for this role but it may be already filled. Still audition because actors suitable for Sam may also be suitable for Tara.

Email a copy of your CV and a headshot/photo to You will be asked to prepare a short monologue (no longer than two minutes) and, if auditioning for a musical role, sing a song accompanied by guitar.
