Generally Mon-Thursday 6-8:30. Times may fluctuate but will be posted on the calendar in advance.

Preparation

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Dramatic monologue preferred but not required.

Special notes:

This play is about eating disorders, but it should be noted: that doesn't mean that everyone needs to be "skinny". That being said, Ellie needs to be small and Bailey should be fairly thin.

Please, come prepared with a complete list of rehearsal conflicts.

No appointment needed but a note to Jenifer Cooper (Director)
jenifer@rhodecenter.org stating your intent to audition would be greatly appreciated.


Synopsis 
ED tackles the topic of eating disorders through the lens of a group of young girls in treatment, especially 15-year-old Spencer, who faces her demons through her passion for writing.
