A Few Good Men
By Aaron Sorkin
Directed by Jennifer Lockwood
Produced by J. Gary Thompson
March 9 through 18, 2018
Auditions: January 22 & 23, 2018

Dayton Playhouse is excited to announce auditions for the riveting, military drama A Few Good Men. Before Aaron Sorkin created The West Wing, Sports Night, and The Social Network, he took Broadway by storm with his compelling story of honor vs. justice. Auditions will be Monday and Tuesday, January 22-23, 2018 at 7 PM at Dayton Playhouse. Performance dates are March 9-18, 2018.

Director Jennifer Lockwood is looking for a few good men and one woman to fill the following roles:

Lance Cpl. Harold Dawson – early 20’s, proud, leader, definitely had a future in the Corps

PFC Louden Downey – 18-20, not worldly, bewildered by the politics

Lt. J.G. Sam Weinberg – late 20’s-30, smartest kid in the room, became a lawyer to help the little guy

Lt. J.G. Daniel Kaffee – late 20’s – 30, used to getting by on his charm which he has in abundance, smart and talented lawyer but not used to working too hard

Lt. Cmdr. Joanne Galloway – early 30’s, born with a rule book in her hand, hard worker, socially awkward

Capt. Isaac Whitaker – 35+, sarcastic, manages his staff with a loose rein and a dash of humor

Capt. Matthew Markinson – 50+, former spy, honor is deeply important to him

PFC William Santiago – 19-20, not physically cut out for Marine Corp through no fault of his own

Lt. Col. Nathan Jessep – 50+, old-school marine but politically savvy, always in charge of every situation

Lt. Jonathan Kendrick – 30’s, from the Bible Belt, a true believer in the code

Lt. Jack Ross – 30’s, gifted lawyer, smart and good at playing whatever game is necessary at the moment

Cpl. Jeffrey Howard – early to mid-20’s, not the sharpest knife in the drawer

Capt. Julius Randolph – 50+, possibly retired, the judge, worked hard to get where he is and demands the respect he know he deserves

Cmdr. Walter Stone – 40+, doctor, not done advancing and willing to compromise to get where he wants to go
