Casting local Chicago actors only for a one day staged reading to be released over streaming platforms and local OTA TV (59.3 Chicago). We are seeking a multicultural diverse cast of characters. Minorities are strongly encouraged to submit. The reading will be taped and all actors will be given footage for private use as well as pay.

Storyline: In what George Orwell called the "wittiest play" Shaw ever wrote, a young engaged noble woman falls in love with an enemy mercenary who crawls into her window to avoid being captured. Set in the 1885 Serbo-Bulgarian War, the classic romantic comedy's theme, that war is not something to be romanticized, still rings true today.

Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Raina's fiancé, and the hero of the Battle of Slivnitza. Sergius, by his own and many others' admission, has no military skill. He led the charge out of a mixture of foolhardiness and desire for self-aggrandizement. Sergius flirts with the Petkoffs' servant Louka, and the play ends in their engagement.

Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Swiss mercenary fighting for the Serbs, and Raina's love interest, who she calls "the chocolate cream soldier." He is skilled in warfare and emotionally sophisticated, but has a weakness for sweets. Bluntschli hides in Raina's room with her help. When he returns in the spring to return Major Petkoff's cloak, events are set into motion that bring out Catherine and Raina's conspiracy to help him, and that lead to his engagement to Raina and an ultimately happy ending. Please include a headshot, resume, and link to reel (if available) in your submission. Actors will be contacted to schedule an online/zoom audition or call-back.

Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

When Sergius appears to be this man, Catherine approves of the union.

Catherine is focused on making sure the Petkoffs' are up-to-date in their home furnishings and technology. Please include a headshot, resume, and link to reel (if available) in your submission.
