Hello Wonderful Theater (and Friend) Folk -
As you may or may not know, my newest piece Inch by Inch will be going up in mid September as part of the 2015 Dream Up Festival. We are still seeking a Tom to complement Bridget (played by yours truly) and will be holding auditions this coming Thursday 7/16 4p-7p (soon! I know!), at the New Georges Room 520 8th Ave, 3rd Fl.
Character Description -
Tom: Mid 20s/early 30s, any ethnicity, genderqueer (uses he/him/his), proudly accepting of self.
Playwright note: The role of Tom was originally written to be a role for a trans/FtM actor or as a "pants role" for a fem-bodied actor. If a director feels led to explore how else Tom can be represented, new interpretations are welcome in consultation with the playwright. The only rule is that Tom embody an identity of "other", in juxtaposition with Bridget's "mainstream" and that he be unapologetically comfortable with his identity.
We are open to seeing actors of all bodies, all gender presentations.
The show dates are 9/13-9/17, with possible extension on either end.
Tech will be in the week just prior, but exact scheduling is TBD.
There will be movement in the piece, so bonus points for folks with dance backgrounds and/or movement vocabulary in their performance toolbelts.
Anyone who'd like to audition please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your availability within the time period and I will confirm a 15 min slot and send sides. I know it's fast approaching. No time like the present!
Please forward abundantly!! Please feel free to be in touch regardless and I hope you are a having wonderful summer!
