General auditions for Benchmark Theatre's first production of their second season, A KID LIKE JAKE by Daniel Pearle, will be held on Monday, October 16, 2017 from 6pm – 10pm with invited callbacks following on Sunday, October 22, 2017 from 10am to 2pm. Both will take place at 40W in Lakewood (1560 Teller St, Lakewood, CO 80214).

Alex and Greg have high hopes for their son Jake, a precocious four-year-old who happens to prefer Cinderella to G.I. Joe. But when implications of choosing the right school for Jake come to the fore, his parents are forced to reconcile their aspirations for Jake with their identities as both parents and spouses. The story of a husband and wife struggling to do right by their son, A KID LIKE JAKE is a study of intimacy and parenthood and the fantasies that accompany both.

Roles to be Cast:

ALEX, thirties
GREG, thirties
JUDY, forties to sixties
NURSE, late-twenties
