Princess Miranda - A beautiful woman who carries herself with grace and nobility
Kyra - Cute young girl, sweet and shy. Fragile, impossibly kind and understanding at every turn
Christophe - Miranda’s Prince Charming. Handsome, brave, strong and even fairly smart
Ferret - Short, thin fireball loyal to the Princess and the others of his group (may be cast as a male or female)
Ma - A friendly tavern-keeper
Dave Corrigan - A young man, friendly personality and adventurous spirit
"DOC” Pallenberg - A man of science but love makes people act in strange ways. Multiple guards, some with lines

Auditions are open to the community. Performances dates for "The Machine Shops” are April 4, 5 and 6 at 7:30 p.m. and April 7 at 2:00 p.m. Auditions will consist of cold readings as well as improv games. Bring your schedule of availability. Copies of script will be available in the College's James F. White Lincoln Library as well as the Fine Arts Department's Box Office.
