“Take Five” directed by Dale Hillman, is a 45 minute One Act Play for six adults, four Men and two Women. The play is a hilarious comedy about what can go wrong in live theatre.
The cast includes:
- Mike – a stagehand with acting aspirations
- Lester – a not too bright assistant stagehand
- Greg – a person in the audience
- Alex Cane – husband of Sharon
- Sharon Cane – very pregnant wife of Alex
- Gladys – Sharon’s sister
“This Is A Play” directed by Nicole Saugstad is a hilarious comedy which follows three actors who, while performing, reveal their own thoughts and motivations as they struggle through crazy stage directions and an unoriginal musical score.
- Male Actor – Thinks he’s all that. A little clueless.
- Female Actor – Thinks she is the “It” girl. Has a rivalry with the Older Female Actor.
- Older Female Actor – seasoned, was probably the “It” girl in her hay-day.
- Composer – no gender, thinks they are the best thing since sliced bread.
Auditioners must be ages 15 and up. Play features some adult situations/humour so anyone under 18 must have parental consent.
The Composer part may or may not be voice over. Please mark a preference on audition page.
