Casting Call: (Comedy) Jimmy

If you are interested in this role contact us immediately through our website or through email at Dwayne@savagecastle.org. We have auditions 3pm on Wednesdays via zoom meeting. Communicate if you can't make that time. Let's work.


Jimmy is one of our co-protagonist with his best friend Billy. Jimmy is an Afrocentric cynic. He is a bit of a loner and workaholic. He loves to read Black literature and follows Boyce Watkins faithfully. He has never smoked or drank. In character terms he is the "hero". He isn't afraid of a fight but he is very logical. He is Debbie's love interest.


Audition Notes: Our hero Billy wakes up and gets ready for the day. His best friend Jimmy makes his entrance.
