What: Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.

Character descriptions: (taken directly from the script)
Wolf: Wolf’s basic personality is of a likeable character who enjoys life and the beauty around him.  He’s a bit clumsy, almost like a buffoon.  He is sensitive and easily hurt.  When he portrays the “Bad Wolf”, he assumes a deep, rather husky voice.  He also needs to be able sound a bit like a young girl, as well as an old woman.

Grandma: A sweet little old lady, who enjoys playing tricks on her granddaughter.  She’s not too assertive, and gives up rather easily.

Red’s Mother: A loving, dutiful mother, who dotes on her daughter and thinks her daughter can do no wrong.  Loving to a fault!

Deer: Kind and wise.  A good friend of the Wolf’s.

Rabbit: Active and rather feisty.  He moves quickly and spontaneously.
Skunk: Rather timid and shy, and easily intimidated.

Butterfly: Sensuous, beautiful, with a bit of a Southern drawl.

Woodcutter: Burly, strong, hard worker, no nonsense sort of man.

Stage Manager: Easily frustrated; barks rather than talks.
