Auditions for WIDESCREEN

Written and Directed by NED O’REILLY

Monday, August 11th @ 7 – 10pm
Tuesday, August 12th @ 7 – 10pm

Bartell Theatre, Drury Stage, 113 East Mifflin Street, Madison WI

PRODUCTION DATES: November 7 thru 22, 2014, on the Bartell’s Drury stage.

3 Roles are available:

  • GREG – Late 20s/early 30s, slightly off of handsome, a smart, corporate trainer with a weakness for Buster Posey and the hotel lounge (lead role)
  • TIFFANY – Mid- to late 20s, a hot, confident, fun-loving corporate trainer with an equal affinity for boy-toys and girl/girl shenanigans (lead role)
  • TROY – Early 20s, earnest and pretty, a Wisconsin boy-toy who can’t stop sexting and looks good in a Speedo (featured role with plenty to do in five scenes)

The play is very verbal (think Aaron Sorkin) and also very physical, including scenes of mature subject matter.  Come prepared to read from the script and meet a few physical challenges.  There will be no nudity at the initial audition.

Rehearsals will be a couple times a week in the second half of August and progress to four nights a week after Labor Day.

Walk-ins will be welcome, but signing up is better.  Contact the director to set an audition time or to find out more about the play:
