Character Descriptions All the King’s Women 
All the King’s Women by Luigi Jannuzzi  Fast Paced Comedy   Stories from the life of Elvis Presley told through the eyes of the women who met him over the years. Beginning with the saleswoman who sold his mother a guitar for his 11th birthday (Elvis wanted a rifle) to staff negotiating his first big  TV appearance (No gyrating and sing only to the dog!) to Nixon's secretaries during his White House visit (he wanted to be an “undercover” FBI agent), to a late night grocery encounter  and the tale of a retiring manager of the Graceland gift shop, this is a funny and unexpected look at “the King” that will keep you laughing and leave you humming and viewing the Elvis phenomena in a whole new light!!
Show runs October 12 -22nd. Dates of rehearsals negotiable.  You do not need to be able or willing to sing!  All ages and sizes of actors will be considered!

General info about OLT auditions

Our audition procedures are generally as follows, but may vary at the discretion of the Director:
Auditions are typically held on a Monday and a Tuesday evening, starting at 7:00 p.m. You do not have to attend both nights of auditions, but you are welcome to read both nights of auditions if you'd like. If callbacks are necessary, the director will schedule the date and time.

Audition appointments are not necessary unless you are unable to attend auditions on the regularly scheduled days and times. In that case, the Director may agree to schedule a separate audition appointment for you. This choice is entirely up to the Director.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. You do not need to have prepared monologues. Copies of the scripts for the current season's plays are available at the Downtown, Lacey, and Tumwater branches of the Timberland Library. You may ask for a copy of the script at the information desk. Scripts are only available for use at the library and may not be checked out.

Headshots and resumes are welcome at auditions, but are not necessary.

Rehearsals are typically Monday through Thursday. Additional rehearsals and/or the rehearsal schedule are at the Director's discretion. Performances are typically Thursday through Sunday; Sunday is the only matinee. Special performances are typically on the Tuesday evening after the second weekend of performances.

Olympia Little Theatre is a community theater and you need not have any previous experience, just passion and commitment!
