VERY IMPORTANT:  If you are auditioning for the parts of “Little Bit” and “Uncle Peck” IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU READ THE SCRIPT BEFORE THE AUDITION and be aware of the action (blocking) that these two characters have with each other in the car.  These characters will have close personal contact and must be comfortable with the physicality required.
