Roles To Apply For In ‘Alice Fades Away’
Bishop Cutter (Supporting): Male, 50+
The patriarch of an isolated farm located in the hills of the Berkshires. He has lived there for decades, outliving his wife (cancer) and two sons (in the war). He is a survivor, but worn down from the cruel nature of the world, hence his retreat into the isolation that the farm provides.
Required Media: Headshot/Photo, Video Reel
Roxy Buswell (Supporting): Female, 50+
Runs the beautiful yet discreet farm made up of emotionally wounded folks from all walks of life. She is the glue that holds everyone together. Stern but sweet, Roxy is a maternal figure to all those around her, as well as a protector when unsavory characters ascend upon the farm.
Dana Ashfield (Supporting): Female, 18-29
Has suffered her share of loss, but is not someone to let the past dictate her life. Dana embraces every day with positivity and warmth. A bright soul in the darkest of times, as well as a beautiful singing voice.
Note: Role requires nudity. Dana is the carefree type, and nudity in the 1950’s was a taboo thing, but not to Dana. She’s almost like a pre-hippie, 15 years before there were any. The scene in question that requires nudity is when the gang goes swimming in a quarry and Dana decides to go in skinny dipping, causing everyone else to laugh and the main character to relax some more. It is a humorous, heartfelt moment that gives the opportunity for the main character, Alice, to forget about her traumatic past and learn to live carefree alongside Dana.
Requires Nudity: Yes
Dylan Reynolds (Supporting): Female, 18+
A leader and often the smartest person in the room. However, her brains are often hindered and thwarted by the 1950s time period she lives in. Dylan is a natural investigator, picking up on clues others would overlook.
Maya Woodward (Supporting): Female, 20-40
A former nurse in WWII. She is tough and not to be trifled with. She met her husband Everett overseas and the two have been in love ever since.
Everett Woodward (Supporting): Male, 20-40
A confident leading man-like hero. Everett has seen his share of horrors overseas and still suffers from PTSD. He is confident and charming, living his life one day at a time, and through the support of his wife Maya, he is able to keep his past demons at bay.
Michael (Supporting): Male, 6-12
A child between 6 and 12 years old. His parents abandoned him on the farm where he has been taken in by the residents, adopting him as their own.
Brian (Supporting): Male, 18-29
A suave, good-looking man, usually traveling with his guitar. He dresses nicely and always looks his best, even when doing a hard day’s work on the farm.
