Luke believes in God. Adam believes in everything else. NEXT FALL portrays the ups and downs of this unlikely couple’s five-year relationship with sharp humor and unflinching honesty. And when an accident changes everything, Adam must turn to Luke’s family and friends for support… and answers. This timely and compelling new American play forces us all to examine what it means to “believe” and what it might cost us not to.

Dotty Dot: A New Children’s Musical
Written by Ashley Laverty and Travis Kendrick
Directed by Chelsea Bentley

Dotty Dot offers us a glimpse into an afternoon in the life of one VERY bossy twelve-year-old and her gang of quirky friends as they set out on a brand new adventure – putting on a play! But when Dotty gets so power-mad that her mother forces her to come inside, will the neighborhood kids be able to team together to save the show? Dotty Dot is filled with memorable songs, colorful characters, and valuable lessons for kids of all ages!

**If you are unable to make an audition date, or have any questions regarding auditions, please contact Chelsea Bentley at chelsearbentley@gmail.com

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS:

Dotty Dot: Mezzo Soprano with a strong belt. Age 12, is fun, fearless, imaginative and (maybe more than slightly) bossy leader of the neighborhood gang of kids.  Dotty invents an “Adventure of the Day” for everyone to play after school. Today’s adventure is a play, which she will direct and star in (obviously).

Polka Dot: Soprano with a strong belt. Age 8, is Dotty’s little sister and eternal sidekick. Dotty never allows her to play with everybody, but she relentlessly tries. (Secretly an incredible singer and given a chance to shine by the end of the show).

Bottomless Pitt: Bari-tenor. Age 10, always has food in his hand (and food on the brain). He is left out, left behind, and picked last. Has a secret crush on Polka Dot.

Jenny: Soprano. Age 12, is Dotty’s best friend, despite being exactly opposite of her. She is as shy as Dotty is bold, as quiet as Dotty is loud. Jenny would much rather write a play than be in it.

Hamilton: Bari-tenor. Age 10, is a born costume designer! Wears a purple scarf and loves the costume trunk.

Mary Beth: Mezzo Soprano/Alto. Age 11, would do anything for Dotty (but the sentiment isn’t mutual). She is Dotty’s lackey and can be a little obnoxious.

Mrs. Dot: Soprano. Loves her two daughters, and puts up with Dotty’s imagination and Polka’s frustration with trying to belong.
