Description:

Teen actors needed for the hilarious comedy play "Play On!" Please see the details below. ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE ACCEPTED. About the project: Synopsis: This is the hilarious story of a theater group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance, in which anything that can go wrong, does. When the author decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theater during the curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap climax and a thoroughly hilarious romp. Even the sound effects reap their share of laughter. Additional info: Director is looking for strong actors with great comedic timing, who have high energy creating a great show overall and making the “Play within a Play” hilariously “amature”.
