Center Players will hold auditions for a production of “Butterflies Are Free” at Center Playhouse, 35 South St, in downtown Freehold, NJ. The play was written by Leonard Gershe and will be directed by Anthony Marinelli.

Audition Dates:  Sat. Dec. 1st  from 3-5pm, with callbacks on Sun. Dec 9th from 7-9pm.

 Performance Dates: February  8 – March 3, 2019; Friday and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm.

Synopsis: Loosely based on the life of attorney Harold Krents, the plot revolves around a blind man living in downtown Manhattan whose controlling mother disapproves of his relationship with a free-spirited hippie. The title was inspired by a passage in Charles Dickens' Bleak House: "I only ask to be free. The butterflies are free. Mankind will surely not deny to Harold Skimpole what it concedes to the butterflies."

Character list:

Don Baker: Early/mid twenties; sings, plays guitar, and is blind. A breezy, even-keel manner masks a strong determination to live on his own.

Jill Tanner: 19 years old, blonde and perky. A self described ex-hippie, Always on the move in an effort to avoid any long term commitments.

Mrs. Baker: Don's mother. 50s, sardonic and sophisticated, she is strong-willed and very protective of her son. She does not suffer fools 
and is frequently suspicious of people's motives.

Ralph Austin: Mid twenties, an impulsive and over-confident avant-garde director who considers himself a genius.
