ALMIGHTY BOB: A Fantasy By Tom Mula Oct 16 – 27, 2019
Auditions: August 17 & 18 (Saturday & Sunday 2:30-4:30 pm) Cold read cuts from the script4M / 4F & (3-5 extra’s) 20’s and upBob is being checked in to a nursing home. Sometimes he thinks he’s God, and sometimes he’s right. Bob has become too much of a handful for his daughter Karen, so they’re trying a trial period at Dr. Wally’s nursing home with miraculous results. Almighty Bob is a funny romantic comedy of life and love. SETTING: The homey, sunny “quiet room” of a small, pleasant, well-tended assisted-living home. CAST DR. WALLY, a nice-looking, youngish-middle-aged doctor, casually dressed under his white coat. He’s not very assertive. COLLEEN, a quirky 30ish social worker, maybe wearing a Dr. Seuss t-shirt under her hospital coat. She’s fun. CLAIRE, a nice-loking older woman. Walks with a walker. A fireball in her time. Dry. JOEYJOJO, a sexy, lean young man, dressed kind of Goth and punky, all in black, shades, pierced, spiked hair. He looks threatening. He’s not. MR. CARMICHAEL, a middle-aged man in a very nive suit, with a little flag pin. Never raises his voice. Very concerned that people like him. He’d make a good undertaker. Underneath, not a nice man. KAREN, a nice-looking businesswoman in her late 30s. Efficient. BOB, a terrific older character actor, in a nice-looking expensive Hawaiian shirt— charming, funny, powerful, with a huge heart. Older than he wants to be. The same actress plays: MRS. PARRISH, an older resident of Providence NURSE ANNE, a leggy nurse GLADYS, the crusty cook, an older lady in a paper hat. Was probably a Marine.(3-5 extra’s) Senior citizens / interactive audience for the Talent show. Minimal rehearsals.
