LONE STAR/LAUNDRY AND BOURBON | teens through 30s

Auditions for

LONE STAR/LAUNDRY AND BOURBON
A TEXAS DOUBLE-FEATURE

Directed by Bobby Britton Jr.

Elizabeth and her friend Hattie are whiling away the time folding laundry, watching TV, sipping bourbon and Coke, and gossiping about the many open secrets which are so much a part of small-town life. They are joined by the self-righteous Amy Lee who, among other tidbits, can’t resist blurting out that Roy has been seen around town with another woman. Meanwhile, Roy, a brawny, macho type who had once been a local high-school hero, is back in town after a hitch in Vietnam and trying to reestablish his position in the community. Joined by his younger brother, Ray (who worships him), Roy sets about consuming a case of beer while regaling Ray with tales of his military and amorous exploits. 

SEEKING:

All types for all roles. Including BIPOC, people with disabilities, gender-fluid, and trans actors.

ELIZABETH: Lead, A powerful woman who is confident in herself and her abilities. She sticks to her guns and calls others out on their drivel. Though she tries to hide her sensitive side and the love she has for Roy, she is loyal and faithful to him to the bitter end.

HATTIE: Lead, The town gossip. She knows everything about everyone and is never afraid to share it. Hattie has an opinion about everything, and everything that has gone wrong is because of her husband and kids.

AMY LEE: Lead, Cletis’s wife who also partakes in gossip, but in a more subtle manner. Spoiled woman; strict Baptist; queen of the country club. And Hattie’s old enemy.

ROY: Lead, A Vietnam war veteran. The bull-headed, strong, uneducated type that small town folk look up to. His 1959 pink Thunderbird convertible is everything sacred in the world to him.

RAY: Lead, Roy’s brother. Even more uneducated than Roy is, and he has no sense of irony. Always looks up to Roy and tries to cheer him up, but he does not understand what his brother has been through. At least he tries.

CLETIS: Lead, An example of the small-town folk that look up to Roy. Married to Amy Lee for her father’s money and works at his appliance store. A disagreeable person who no one really wants to be around.

A DOLL'S HOUSE, PART 2 | all ages and all types

Open Auditions for
A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2

Directed by Wes Copeland

A slammed door.
An awkward favor.
No, you didn't need to see part 1.

In the final scene of Ibsen’s 1879 groundbreaking play, Nora makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children and begin a life on her own. This climactic event—when Nora slams the door on everything in her life—instantly propelled world drama into the modern age. In A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2, many years have passed since Nora’s exit. Now, there’s a knock on that same door. Nora has returned. But why? And what will it mean for those she left behind?

SEEKING:

All types for all roles. Including BIPOC, people with disabilities, gender-fluid, and trans actors.

NORA– Lead, any ethnicity. Fiercely independent and confident. A resourceful woman returning to a life she abandoned to ensure her future. And it may break her. Even when she seems a bit too smug or certain, we must like her.

TORVALD– Lead, any ethnicity. A gentle, mostly affable single father shocked by the arrival of his wife 15 years after she left. Being confronted with Nora rocks his world. Maybe he’s still in love with her, maybe he isn’t. When he loses it, we are surprised.

ANNE MARIE– Lead, any ethnicity. Really exhausted, but making it work. Nora’s former nanny, replacement mother to Nora’s children, and the person who picked up the pieces after Nora left. She thought she’d never see Nora again, but she does. And she’s pissed.

EMMY– Lead, any ethnicity. Confident, charming, able to get what she needs. She's Nora's daughter for sure. It's been 15 years since Nora let her, and Emmy has not forgiven her mother. But now, she needs Nora.

AS YOU LIKE IT | all ages and all types

Open Auditions for

AS YOU LIKE IT

by William Shakespeare

Unable to act on their feelings and forced into exile in the Forest of Arden, lovers Rosalind and Orlando become entangled in a beguiling game of love, lust and mistaken identity. As You Like It subverts the traditional rules of romance and gender roles. Nature and politics are confused in a play that reflects on how bewildering yet utterly pleasurable life can be.

SEEKING: All types for all roles. Roles may be cast separately or doubled. Especially interested in gender-fluid, trans, and BIPOC actors. Guitar playing and/or stage combat experience a plus.

PREPARE: Please present a thirty second Shakespearean monologue. Actors will not be permitted to audition without a monologue – it’s important for the auditors to be able to see your facility with the language in a memorized piece. You may also be given a script and asked to read a scene from the play with other actors.

Note: Anyone in the world may participate in BC Theatre Productions. Brazosport College Theatre productions is worth college credit. By participating in a production, you will automatically be eligible to receive 3 hours of credit and a scholarship (whether you want to or not!).
