Twenty Something Theatre is holding auditions for its fall 2013 production of Stephen Karam's Speech & Debate, playing Oct. 2-12 at Studio 1398. It will be directed by Associate Artistic Producer Brian Cochrane.
Here is the Dramatists Play Service writeup: "Three teenage misfits in Salem, Oregon discover they are linked by a sex scandal that's rocked their town. When one of them sets out to expose the truth, secrets become currency, the stakes get higher, and the trio's connection grows deeper in this searching, fiercely funny dark comedy with music."
The roles we are casting:
Solomon - Sixteen year-old male who wants to be a journalist.
Diwata - Seventeen year-old female who wants to be a musical theatre superstar.
Howie - Eighteen year-old male who just wants to get through the school year.
All actors will be asked to perform one contemporary monologue and one song, unaccompanied. No previous singing experience required. Your monologue and song together should not exceed five minutes in length.
Auditions will take place January 12, 2013 at the Alliance for Arts & Culture - #100 – 930 Howe Street in Vancouver.
Please submit with resume and headshot to brian[at]twentysomethingtheatre[dot]com. Only those selected for an audition will be contacted.
