We're looking for three teens (2M/1F) or older actors who can convincingly play teens for Speech & Debate by Stephen Karam, which will be produced at 35below from May 10 - 26, 2019.
Breakdown: Diwata - 17 year old female. Bold, brave and dorky, Diwata knows she is cut out for fame if only she could get someone to recognize her talents. This is a juicy role for a performer who is truly willing to put herself out there and look ridiculous. Strong singing voice is a plus. Must be okay wearing a nude body stocking onstage.
Solomon - 16 year old male. Aspiring journalist who takes his work quite seriously. Uncomfortable, headstrong and awkward.
Howie - 18 year old male. The new kid at school who just wants to graduate and move on. He's gay, has no friends, and mostly just wants to be left alone. Decent singing voice is a plus.
Sides will be provided and will be posted here soon. If you are unfamiliar with the show, there is a movie version available on Netflix. The plot is different than the play, but it will give you a good sense of the characters. Please do not do impressions of the film at your audition.
If you have any questions, please contact Marci Bernstein at firstname.lastname@example.org
