Dark of the Moon by Howard Richardson and William Berney tells the story of John, the Witch Boy, who falls in love with a human Barbara Allen. The play is a blend of folklore, fantasy, and Appalachian culture and includes many musical numbers from square dances, mountain ballads, and hymns. The cast of 25 includes roles for actors and/or singers and/or dancers of all genders, ages 15 and up. Some roles are non-singing, some are non-speaking, so people of a variety of talents are encouraged to audition.

Role # 1 - John Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
/(Witch Boy) - He should be able to play 18 years old. Must be comfortable in a minimal costume. The role is very physical and actor should be able to portray differences in mortality and immortality through physical movement. Sort of an Appalachian "Edward" from the Twilight series.

Role # 2 - Conjur Man Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
He is an old mountain man who lives in both the mortal and immortal worlds. He is strange and wise; the role can be funny as well as haunting. A country-Yoda so to speak.

Role # 3 - Marvin Hudgens Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
A mortal boy who is desperately in love with Barbara Allen. He is the "Jacob" to John’s "Edward" or quite possibly a humorless version of the sinister "Gaston" in "Beauty and the Beast." He’s muscular and brutish, referred to as the "strongest man in the county." This role is also very physical (the actor has to weld an axe and chop wood onstage). Marvin is also clever and manipulative. In his simplified thinking, he devises a disastrous way to ensure that Barbara and John’s relationship will be a rocky one.

Role # 4 - Uncle Smelicue Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Everybody in town refers to him as "Uncle" which means it is more than likely a nickname. He is jovial and fun. Likes to tease and flirt. He is a master showman, and can entertain at the town dance as well as spin a ghost story for the locals. The script calls for him to play guitar.

Role # 5 - Floyd Allen Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Actor must be able to play younger (supposed to be 15) than Barbara Allen. He is her younger brother. He is comical and a pest as most brothers are. He moves from being the sort of stock type of a younger brother to becoming a boy terrified of the curse that his sister is bringing on the family.

Age: from 16 to 20

Role # 6 - Mr. Allen Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Barbara Allen’s father. He begins as a fun, caring, parent, almost like a TV sitcom dad, but is finally pushed into the role of desperate father. He begins an impenetrable force.

Age: from 40 to 60

Role # 7 - Preacher Haggler Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
He is the local preacher. Rustic and comical, but also able to conjure up fire and brimstone and make his congregation quake with fear of hell and damnation. His blind faith is manipulated and used against him as he becomes truly blind in his lack of compassion and blurs the line between right and wrong.

Role # 8 - Mr. Summey Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Father to Edna, Barbara Allen’s rival, and married to Mrs. Summey, the local mid-wife. He is also the owner of the General Store. His family is sort of always in competition with the Allen’s, but in a way the relationship reminds us of the Olsen’s and the Ingalls’ in "Little House of the Prairie." Mr. Summey, much like Mr. Olsen, is not immune to a healthy competition but often embarrassed by his wife and daughter’s overt distaste of the Allen family.

Role # 14 - Barbara Allen Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Must be able to portray 18. She is a naïve, lusty young woman who falls in madly love with John. Must be comfortable with the very ADULT situations that happen to her during the course of the play. She is both proud and haughty and very vulnerable. The character goes through a huge roller coaster of emotional pain and physical attacks. The actress must be able to handle physically and emotionally a daunting role, as well as portray these intense situations believably at every performance. It is her journey that makes the play a tragedy of epic proportions. It is a challenging workout for any actor.

Role # 15 - Conjur Woman Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Role # 16 - Miss Metcalf Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
She is the local spinster. She is described as pretty. And while the script doesn’t specify her profession, one pictures her as the local schoolteacher or librarian. She is a romantic, blushes easily (mainly because it is proper) but enjoys the attention she receives from the local single gentlemen.

Role # 17 - Mrs. Allen Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Barbara Allen’s mother. She is a woman of God, a hard working, no-nonsense woman of the mountains. She is as loving to her family as a woman of her background could allow herself to be. She does have moments of fun and whimsy, but catches herself and makes the choice to be mindful of her place and station. She is very concerned about her daughter’s opportunities to be married and Barbara’s less than perfect morality.

Role # 18 - Mrs. Summey Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
She is the local mid-wife, mother to Edna, Barbara Allen’s rival, and married to Mr. Summey, the owner of the local grocery store. Her family is sort of always in competition with the Allen’s, but in a way the relationship reminds me of the Olsens and the Ingalls in "Little House of the Prairie." With Mrs. Summey, much like Mrs. Olsen, often going out of her way to be ‘above’ fighting with the Allen family, though one senses that the "lady doth protest to much."

Role # 19 - Edna Summey Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Actress must be able to portray 18. She would be a bully if anyone actually paid her any attention. She is the bitter rival of Barbara Allen. Even though she is very judgmental of Barbara’s less that stellar morality, it turns out her moral compass is also off. This character sings quite a bit and I would like to add her as a vocalist to Uncle Smelicue’s band, which would mean she sings even more often than the script indicates.

Some productions cast a chorus of witches. These would be non-speaking roles, or might "echo" the lines of the Dark and Fair Witches. This may be an option. However, they should be VERY comfortable with near nude/suggested nudity (NOTE: will not be nude…but will probably be in a flesh colored body stocking or similar to suggest nudity.) Should be able to move well! Animal/surreal-like movements will be choreographed to suggest "otherworldly-ness." They will possibly double in some of the scenes as citizens of Buck Creek.
