Man #1 (Jewish Chorus/Gabe/Edgy British Guy)—25-40; Male, any ethnicity. GABE is the mega dude/womanizer. Has every answer to every question about women that has ever been asked. And probably has a catch phrase to go with that answer. Aaron's best friend since childhood. EDGY ROCKER/BRITISH GUY are bad boys from Casey's past. Cocky and neglectful, they are overcompensating. Baritenor range.

GRANDMA IDA is Aaron's dead grandmother, who feels strongly that her son should marry a Jewish woman.
Man #2 (Reggie/Aaron’s Future Son/Edgy Rocker Guy)—Late 20s-30s. Male, tenor. REGGIE is Casey's fabulously fierce gay and over-imaginative best friend. Easily sent into a tailspin of jealousy, paranoia, and drama. EDGY ROCKER/BRITISH GUY are bad boys from Casey's past. Cocky and neglectful, they are overcompensating.
Woman #2 (Jewish Chorus/Allison/Google Girl/Female with Megaphone #1)—25-35, female. Aaron's ex-fiancé. Gorgeous, sexy, uptight, conservative, controlling, manipulative. Must have great belt and some soprano.
Man #3 (Waiter/Casey’s Christian Father/Friendly Therapist)—35-45, male, baritenor. A career waiter, who dabbles with songwriting and performing on the side. A romantic. He wants nothing more than for love to blossom in his restaurant. A closet poet as well. CASEY's CHRISTIAN FATHER is a stereotype super-Christian, praising the Easter Bunny and denouncing Judaism.

THEATRE BY THE BAY'S FIRST ANNUAL 10 MINUTE PLAYWRITING FESTIVAL 2016 is now accepting submissions for our festival on Aug 21. The festival is open to young playwrights (7-12th grade) as well as adult playwrights. If your play is accepted, adult playwrights will be required to do a staged reading; young playwrights will have the option of a sit down reading or a staged reading. Every playwright must have his/her own director, cast and rehearsal space. If needed we will, to the best of our ability, assist you in casting your play or finding a director. Each play will have one tech rehearsal in our theater before the festival. There is no fee to submit. Only plays that are accepted will be required to pay a $10 participation fee to help cover the cost of refreshments, publicity and other operating costs. There will be a cash award of $75 for the "Best 10 Minute Play" in each division - young playwrights and adult playwrights. Read ALL of the submission guidelines before sending in your script for consideration.
1--No musicals or skits. The submission must be a play--a compact play with a beginning, middle,
and end. You need a character facing obstacles, rising action, conflict, and a climactic moment; your play must tell a complete story. Monologues will also be considered.
2--Play must be 10 minutes or under in length--no longer. Our committee will time each submitted work, so we suggest that each playwright conduct a read-through of his/her own final script for timing before submitting it to us. Adult playwrights must submit a play with the theme we set for the festival.
3--For our adult playwrights, we are asking that the theme of your play be what it means to be a family.
Family is a very general theme, so make this a creative challenge. It could be any type of family--traditional
family, extended family (parents and children residing with other family members), non-traditional families, single parent family, grandparent or step-family.
4--For our young playwrights, we do not require a specific theme for acceptance into our festival. Young playwrights can submit a play with any theme provided it doesn't include unnecessary sexual and violent situations.
5--Play must be original and never produced before in NYC.
6--Keep set, lighting, sound, costume and prop requirements to a minimum; quick changeovers are
needed. Scripts with complex technical requirements could lead to a rejection.
7--All submissions must be sent USPS--no email submissions. Submission deadline is Feb 1 -- any scripts postmarked AFTER Feb 1 will not be considered for the festival. Scripts will not be returned. Send scripts to: Bay Terrace Jewish Center, 13-00 209th St, Bayside, NY 11360 ATT: Playwright Committee

Long Island Housing Services, Inc., a non-profit agency that serves our community by advocating fair housing is looking to hire per diem employees to help with our Fair Lending Investigations. We have found that actors have the best skills for this position as they are able to memorize a script and follow directions. The title of the position is a tester. A tester will be paid $17/hr and compensated for both training and travel to assignments. www.Lifairhousing.org
LIHS is a non-profit civil rights organization dedicated to promoting equal opportunity in housing on Long Island. LIHS is dedicated to:
· Eliminating unlawful housing discrimination
· Encouraging the development of low income and affordable housing
· Promoting open, accessible and inclusive communities
· Facilitating and strengthening enforcement of Fair Housing laws
· Educating and assisting the public regarding housing rights and opportunities in the region.
LIHS’ activities include:
· Fair housing investigations (rental, sales, insurance and lending)
· Testing and advocacy to facilitate enforcement and compliance
· Public and private industry education
LIHS offers the following additional services:
· Landlord/Tenant counseling and referrals
· Mortgage default/foreclosure prevention counseling and legal services
· Pre/Post purchase counseling
· Loan Scam and Loan Modification Rescue Scam education and reporting
FAIR LENDING TESTING PROGRAM
· LIHS recruits and trains individuals to be testers that will help gather information about current market and industry practices. Fair housing laws protect everyone from unlawful housing discrimination. Through its testing program, LIHS’ ability to investigate real estate-related transactions and practices (rentals, sales, insurance and lending) and aid with the enforcement of local, state, and federal fair housing laws is enhanced significantly. Testing (aka investigation) is an investigative tool used to gather evidence. Generally, fair housing testing refers to the use of individuals who, without a bona fide [genuine] intent to rent or purchase a home, apartment or other dwelling, or without a bona fide intent to apply for a mortgage loan, pose as prospective renters and purchasers of real estate or borrowers for the purpose of gathering information which may indicate whether a housing provider or lender is complying with fair housing and lending laws. In essence, testers would be going ’undercover’ like mystery shoppers to lending institutions and pretending to be applying for mortgages with the financial information we provide them. The tester then writes a report about how they were treated by the bank and what loan options the bank offered them. We use those reports to see if any discrimination has occurred. Courts have found testing to be persuasive evidence and sometimes the only credible or competent evidence available to corroborate an allegation of housing or lending discrimination. This type of investigation has been used since the Civil Rights Era and is a completely legal and credible form of investigation.
