Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office. Unless the public is looking for...the worst candidate to ever run for office. A timely and hilarious comedy that skewers politics and celebrates democracy.
Casting: 3 Female and 4 Male who can play the ages listed below.
Paige Caldwell- 20-30s female (but could be any gender) A smart, confident woman with a professional’s view of politics: she sees it as a series of contests to be won. Green yet eager.
Dave Riley- 30s-50s male The Chief of Staff to the new Governor. Endearingly earnest and naive on the subject of politics yet exceedingly idealistic.
Louise Peakes- 30s-60s female The impressively personable, likable and confident temp who is absolutely clueless. A natural people person without a manipulative bone in her body nor a brain cell.
Ned Newley - 30s-50s male A truly knowledgeable political leader who lacks confidence. Humble and completely uncomfortable in front of groups. Good ‘ol boy who could fix the world but prefers no one knows who he is.
Arthur Vance - 40s-70s male A showman with an overbearing personality. Confidence with an ego to match but genuine in his honesty and excitement. A political king who demands respect and rightly deserves it.
Rachel Parsons - 30s-50s female A genuine person with the ease of someone who’s comfortable with herself. She’s a straightforward and honest journalist. She’s seen enough of life - and politics - to be cynical, but she’s more apt to make a wry joke.
A.C. Petersen - 30s-60s male (but could be any gender) The techie in the corner no one knows is there. A very intelligent person who could fix anything electronic with ease. With a low tolerance for bullshit their silence might seem unfriendly, but deep down they are a teddybear with a keen intellect. NOTES: The roles of Dave Riley and Rachel Parsons have a romantic interaction including a kiss on the cheek. Please come to auditions with a headshot, or recent photo, and your acting experience. >>PLEASE SEE ATTACHED CALENDAR TO FILL IN AND BRING TO AUDITIONS<<
