Mark and I were very particular about how we wanted to conduct the auditions for Alternaria. With the script remaining flexible and organic , we empowered the actors to breathe life into the framework of our story and the relationships between each of the 6 main characters.
We provided a series of journal entries to give our actors a few secrets, a clear philosophy on their current state of life, and a sturdy groundwork to build on creatively. Four journal entries are included here; one for Honey (Camellia's best friend and co-worker), for Jen (Camellia's regular customer), Holland (Camellia's co-worker), and Dalton (Camellia's rapist).
