Character Breakdowns

Director Sandie Fairman will be looking for actors who can play the ages of their characters, but the actors certainly do not have to be those exact ages.

RUDY PAZINSKI:  12 years old. Full of fun. His world revolves around Mad Magazine and TV comedians. Does a great Ed Sullivan impression. His curious mind gets him in trouble with the Nuns at school when he innocently questions the rules of Catholicism.

GEORGIE PAZINSKI:  13 years old. Mentally “challenged” – what we used to call “retarded.” His mental age is that of a 3-year-old. Consistently good natured, he communicates with gestures, grunts and an occasional real word.

EDDIE PAZINSKI:  15 years old. Typical swaggering teenage boy. Loves his family but wouldn’t be caught dead admitting it.  Hides his sweet nature under a tough guy demeanor.

ANNIE PAZINSKI:  16 years old. Insecure. Frets a lot. Everything’s a crisis. Battling a weight problem; sneaks Hostess Twinkies into her room.

CHET PAZINSKI: The Dad. Late 40s. Former baseball player who never made it to the majors. Owns a neighborhood bar. A loving guy but let’s life’s adversities get him down. Handles his workday frustrations by yelling at his kids.

ELLEN PAZINSKI:  The Mom. Mid-40s.  With great humor, energy, patience and love, she holds her family together. Though at times tired and weary, she can still summon the zest to dance a late night polka in the kitchen with her husband. And she’s feisty enough to snap a nun’s ruler in two when her kid is being threatened.

SISTER CLARISSA: 60-ish. A strict and stern nun from the old school. Reveals her true love for children in the play’s critical moment.
