"M A S H" Auditions.
Auditioning is painless.
Come out for auditions for this fantastically funny and classic show.
Cold reading from the script.
A full length comedy in two acts.
A cast of 15 men: (much smaller with doubling)
General Hamilton H. Hammond - The overseer of the Mash compounds in Korea. Tough, cigar smoking general stereotype.
Lt. Colonel Henry Blake - The commander of the 4077th. A sweet man that loves fishing and football, Henry is a good doctor but not a good leader. Without Radar he would be lost.
Major Frank Burns - He is known as "Ferret Face." He's a poor surgeon and an even poorer human being. He has a torrid affair with Major Houlihan. *The actor in this role must be comfortable with stage kissing.
Father Francis John Patrick Mulcahy - Kind, sweet and quite priest. He tries his very best to be an island of calm in a sea of chaos.
Captain Walter (Walt) Waldowski - The unit's dentist. He uses his tent as the compounds gambling hall. For the most part he is an average Joe but is known to suffer from depression.
Captain John McIntyre (Trapper John) - He is a ladies' man, or at least that what he thinks he is. He is at the 4077 before Hawkeye and Duke come along and knows the ropes. A likeable, good looking guy.
Corporal "Radar" O'Reilly - A young farm boy that quietly makes the unit run. He has poor sight but he makes up for it by having acute hearing. He is disheveled but sweet. Remember he knows what's going to happen before you do.
Captain August Bedford Forrest (Duke) - Hawkeye's sidekick. He too is a skilled surgeon and a little boy at times.
Ho-Jon - The Swamps houseboy. The entire compound loves and takes care of Ho-Jon. He is an intelligent young man that gets drafted by the South Korean Army. He is the through line of the play.
Dean Mercy Lodge - Could be male. The dean of Hawkeyes old medical college. * Will most likely be double cast as a personal of the 4077.
Captain Oliver Wendell Jones (Spearchucker) - A pro-football player that happens to be a neuro-surgeon that was drafted into the war. This is a smaller 2 scene role, but make no mistake, it is a great role. Needs to be a large, strong individual. Preferably someone that plays football. I do not want to double cast this role which mean commitment would only be about 3 weeks.
Corporal Max Klinger - A man that was drafted and not happy about it. Klinger shows his unhappiness of being a draftee by dressing in woman's cloths. He is hoping that they will think he is crazy and send him home on a Section 8 discharge. However he is a hard worker and a good man to have around. * The actor needs to be comfortable with their body; Klinger will be wearing many styles of dresses and high heels.
