Driving Miss Daisy Auditions to take place February 19 & 20, 2023

Auditions for the final show of the 22/23 season are set for February 19 - 20, 2023 at 6:30 pm on both days, to take place at the theatre.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a date change from an earlier Facebook announcement; due to unforeseen circumstances the auditions were rescheduled.

Character Descriptions

Daisy Werthan: a Jewish widow, native to Atlanta, Georgia. She is 72 years old in 1948 at the beginning of the play, and 97 years old in 1973 at the end of the play. Daisy is fiercely rooted in her frugal upbringing, her early career as a teacher, her Southern propriety and her Judaism.

Boolie Werthan: Daisy’s son, also born and raised in Atlanta. He is 40 years old in the first scene of the play in 1948, and 65 years old at the show’s end in 1973. Boolie is dutiful to his mother, despite her prickly personality. Though he clearly cares for Daisy, it’s not in the way that she would find most fitting.

Hoke Colburn: an African American man, native to Georgia. He is 60 years old in 1948 at the beginning of the play, and 85 years old in 1973 at the end. Before meeting Daisy, he had neither traveled nor learned to read. Hoke grew up in the thick of the Jim Crow era, experiencing for almost his whole life segregation, discrimination, injustice and racism.

About Auditioning for this Show

For auditions we’ll ask each person trying out for each character to read a side (two per character). It'll be short & painless. The main thing is to make sure that you have fun!
