    Maui OnStage will be holding auditions for the Maui debut of Aaron Sorkin’s renowned play A Few Good Men. This Broadway hit about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial.

  • Director, Rick Scheideman will be seeing actors in 10 minute blocks beginning at 6:15.

  • Bring a head-shot and resume and your conflict schedule to auditions. To schedule an audition appointment (necessary), please call 244-8680 ext 23.  Actors who come to the audition without an appointment will be seen if time allows.

  • Callbacks with readings from the script will be on Wednesday, February 22 and rehearsals will begin in early March. A Few Good Men runs April 28 – May 14 at the Historic Iao Theater.

    • Directions to Maui OFFStage at 811 Kolu Street below!

Roles and Character Descriptions: (script versions of A Few Good Men are available on-line)

LT DANIEL A. KAFFEE (M: 25-40) – self-absorbed, a bit chaotic, but very talented lawyer who finds himself being challenged and stretched in ways he’s never been.

LT CMDR JOANNE GALLOWAY (F: 30-40) – highly motivated go-getter who still thinks she needs to prove herself as a woman in the military.

LT SAM WEINBERG (M: 30-40) – career focused lawyer who misses his family, but loves what he does – which is playing second fiddle to a much more talented and vocally astute side-kick (Kaffee).

LT COL NATHAN JESSEP (M: 40-55) – the essence of Marine:  tough, focused, uncompromising, powerful in speech and physical presence, intimidating to everyone, but still able to schmooze.

LT JOHNATHAN JAMES KENDRICK (M: 25-35) – over-the-top duty-focused Marine who exemplifies all that is wrong with myopic leadership.  Uses the Bible as a thumping card.

LT JACQUELINE or JACK ROSS (M or F 30-40) – Prosecuting attorney who solidly knows the law, the Marines, and counterparts in court.  Strong and honorable, likeable in a conflicting way.

CAPT MATTHEW MARKINSON (M: 45-55) – Marine Executive Officer who tries to secretly push the truth to the forefront only to find everything he’s ever been taught being challenged.

PFC LOUNDEN DOWNEY (M: 18-25) – sweet, down-home boy-next-door who probably joined the Marines because it’s the best way to utilize what little brain God gave him. Naïve but genuine.

LANCE COPORAL HAROLD DAWSON (ML 20-25) – Essence of Marine honor with a touch of genuine humanity.  Believes to the core in the Corps – its honor and its code.

PFC WILLIAM SANTIAGO (M: 18-25) – honestly whimpy Marine whose inability to carry his load, despite its reality, is the cause of the conflict in the show.

CMDR WILMA or WILLIAM STONE (M or F: 45-55)  Chief Medical Officer at GTMO – follows medical protocol

CAPT. JULIUS  RANDOLPH (M: 50-60) – strong and decent Judge of the Court Martial.

CPL. JEFFREY OWEN HOWARD (M: 20-30) – goofy and fun Marine who provides a lot of comic relief, but also a lot of truth in what goes on behind the scenes of the Marine training.

CAPT ISAAC WHITAKER (M: 40-55) – Kaffee’s JAG boss who assigns him to the case.

ENSEMBLE – the play requires a myriad of military people who serve as sentries, guards, officers in the jury, all of whom create a solid visual and character piece for the overall look and feel of the show.
