Description of Notice:

Seeking one female infant to play the role of daughter in a family of four.

Casting Length:

Eighteen years or until use as daughter is fulfilled.

At three years of age, most children are able to accept reality and limitations, act in ways to obtain other’s approval, and be self-reliant for their immediate needs. However, they have not internalized many rules, are gullible, and their judgment is not always good.

Non-calculated motions made by the human body can be interpreted as indicators for the internal psychological space of that person. These non-verbal signs of communications can become social implications and, for the benefit of the individual, should be done away with.  Kinetic iterations of

emotions such as eye movement, facial expression, gestures, and posture are qualifying emotional symptoms. Recent studies in individual emotional safety suggest these physical manifestations of the internal landscape must be trained out of us.

When introducing new foods, it is important to add them to the diet slowly, no more than one new food a week. In this way, if a baby has a reaction the food will be easily identified. When starting a food, offer only one or two teaspoons once or twice for a few days. After that allow the infant to have as

much as he likes for the rest of the week. When starting another new food the next week, continue the first food. 

 

Please complete the appropriate sections listed below in accordance with the notice type. Should you have multiple notice types, please complete a form for each notice type.

no, no, no, this is all going very wrong. you aren’t supposed to love me. you are supposed to leave me on the street where you found me, cold and caked in dirt from my long hours of brooding by myself. brooding is very important. if you can master the art of a great brood then you will go far in this story.

you have to really believe the reason you are brooding. they hate you. of course they hate you, who wouldn’t hate you? you hate you. i hate you. it is your destiny to be hated. kicked out on the street where you found me, cold and caked in dirt. 

 

For AUDITIONS, complete section four. For PHOTO/RESUME requests or STAGE MANAGER NOTICES complete section five. Please include a breakdown of all roles being auditioned. (Use next page if necessary)

At a young age we are encouraged to internalize feeling-actions so as to avoid burdening the other members of our family with unnecessary emotional toll. This way, each individual could truly experience the full scope of his or her own feelings as a means of achieving emotional autonomy. Besides a few slip ups, wherein **Jake's slumped shoulders indicated he might be “defeated”, or when the upper corners of **Mary's mouth turned upwards and some of her teeth showed what may indicate potential “joy”, the family has been able to live harmoniously without truly expressing anything visceral at all.

The baby should be allowed to stop eating at the first sign of willingness to stop, not at the maximum point of consumption. Eating habits are established early in life and such practices will contribute to poor eating habits and obesity. We are all brought up not to waste food and this influences us when we feed our infants, causing us to overlook our baby’s cues of fullness. When a baby turns away or leans back in his hair chair and begins to lose interest in eating, this is time to stop the feeding.
