A Note from the Director
Director, Richard Bento says, "I am looking for strong, passionate actors, all ages and ethnicities encouraged to audition. Please do not type yourself out, do not role type against the movie. Keep in mind that all the characters are Southern, so feel free to attempt a Southern accent!"
To play 35-45 year old owner of a small town beauty shop. She knows everyone's business and shares it with anyone who will listen. Southern Belle. She always has advice for you, and they often come in the form of country sayings.
to play 18-24, very shy twenty-year-old hair-dresser. She goes from a very soft-spoken person to a bible-loving Christian with her heart on her sleeve.
to play 50- late 60s widow of the former mayor of Chinquapin. She is wealthy and also knows everyone's business. She is the sarcastic member of the group. She loves to laugh and poke fun at the little things that others cry over. She is very close with Ouiser.
Roughly to play 18-26 year-old diabetic young lady. Prettiest girl in town, and loved by all. She has a weird relationship with her mother, and often rebels just for the sake of rebellion.
to play 40 to Mid 50s mother of Shelby. She is over-protective at times and finds the need to have a firm grasp on the world at all times. She is a busy woman who worries too much for her age.
Ouiser (pronounced Weezer) Boudreaux:
She is the same age as Clairee. She is a wealthy old bitty. She is a lovably miserable lady, though. Her unique personality and sense of humor is a great relief in the serious scenes. She is very close to Clairee.
