Open auditions are being held in Provincetown, MA on Saturday, May 15th from 10AM to 3PM for the summer-run of David Parr's new play Slap&Tickle at the Provincetown Theater, 238 Bradford Street.  To be directed by Obie Award winner David Drake, this pre-New York engagement of Slap&Tickle will run Tuesdays thru Saturdays, July 6th thru August 14th at the Provincetown Theater.  Rehearsals will begin the week of June 14th. This is a paid opportunity for non-union actors.  A set stipend will be offered for the rehearsal period as well as a per-performance stipend. Slap&Tickle is being produced by the New York-based producer Robert Driemeyer.


THE PLAY: Like a combination of Terrence McNally's The Ritz meets Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues, David Parr's Slap&Tickle is set in a contemporary gay bathhouse and uses a gallery of nearly 20 characters to explore – often in direct-address fashion to the audience -- how drugs, politics, HIV and the internet have changed the sexual and emotional landscape for gay men over the past 25 years in America.


THE ACTORS: Seeking 6 versatile, non-union male actors, early 20s–mid 50s, to play 6 roles.  All ethnicities will be considered. ROLES:  Rob #1: 20s, vulnerable, naïve; Rob #2: 30s-early 40s, funny, guarded; Rob #3: 30s-early 40s, intelligent, observant; Rob #4: 30s-early 40s, plays both sexy aggressor and lovable doormat; Rob #5: 40s-50s, gentlemanly, funny; Rob #6: 30s-early 50s, masculine, suppresses underlying anger.


NOTE: Rob #1, #2, #3 & #4 play multiple characters, and brief nonsexual nudity will be required for these roles. (No nudity is required at auditions.)


We are also seeking those interested in the position of stage manager/director's assistant. This too is a paid opportunity. Those interested are invited to attend the audition for an interview or contact Robert Driemeyer at to schedule an interview with the director for another day.
