| ACTORS MUST PREPARE |
A 1 minute monologue, in the style of the show (it's a dark comedy... with puppets).
Actors are encouraged to demonstrate their southern accent during their monologue. Actors may be asked to do a cold read from the script in their best Texan accent. Puppet work/experience is a plus!

*VIDEO SUBMISSIONS ACCEPTED* Please fill out google form with a link to your video submission: https://forms.gle/rNzMeeMa9MfQb9tEA

(Google form is also available to those doing an in-person audition and would like to have materials submitted electronically.)

This play takes place in Cypress, Texas and all characters should speak in a southern accent. Jason, Margery, and Jessica all use puppets in this show. There is strong language. Please see character descriptions below for more details.

**ACTORS MUST BE 18 + TO AUDITION DUE TO MATURE CONTENT**

Again, this play contains mature content. This involves intimacy/fight choreography, language, etc. Actors should be prepared to work on this material in a closed rehearsal space.


| CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS |

Jason/Tyrone
17 years old. Timid, awkward and self-conscious, but a brilliant puppeteer. He is close with his mother and has a crush on Jessica. He has a lot of pent up anger. He is like Jekyll and his puppet, Tyrone, is Hyde. Tyrone takes control over Jason as the story progresses.

Margery
Jason’s mother. Her husband passed away and she has been lost since then. She teaches the puppetry class for the youth ministry. Must be comfortable with aggressive intimacy with Timothy.

Pastor Greg
Pastor of the church and overseer of the youth ministry program. He has a thing for Margery. Keeps things professional...mostly.

Timothy
17 years old. Too cool for Sunday school. Loves to pick on Jason and Jessica. He is deeply in love with Margery. Must be comfortable with aggressive intimacy with Margery.

Jessica
17 years old. Always a logical thinker and problem solver in times of chaos. She’s the object of Jason’s affection. Her puppet Jolene is a sexy little thing.
