Auditions will be at Rover Dramawerks’ office space, 521 J Place, Suite 629, between Plano Parkway and the Bush Turnpike, a half block west of Avenue K.
Brief Synopsis: America’s “bad boys of abridgement,” best known for The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), have taken on the movies in this seriously silly show biz satire, rummaging through the reels and flicking through the films in this riotous carnival of the classics! Giving Hollywood more than just a nip and a tuck, three brave actors slash through the celluloid to condense the 186 greatest films in Hollywood’s over-100 year history into a complete compilation of classic cinematic clichés – plus a few brand new clichés they just made up. “A hilarious and speedy take on Hollywood’s highs and lows.” - BBC
Roles: Seeking 3 men with strong comic timing and ad-lib / improv skills to play themselves and multiple Hollywood characters (male and female). Familiarity with Hollywood and the movies parodied in the script is not required but helpful as there are several impersonations within the script.
The show is high energy and contains a lot of physical comedy. Costumes and characters change with lightning speed, making this a tour de force performance from each actor individually and working as a team.
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script and improv.
Open to diverse casting for race and age.
All roles are available.
