MadLab will be holding auditions for Counter/Top by Kirin McCrory. MadLab is seeking actors for 3 male and 3 female roles.
Auditions will be cuttings from the script (so no need to prepare a monologue!) and will take place on Sunday June 4th, 2017 at MadLab from 12pm to 3pm (227 North 3rd Street). If you have any questions or would like to request a script, please contact Director Megan Mateer at email@example.com.
Performance dates are August 10-12, 18-19, and 25-26. Actors are paid a stipend.
ABOUT THE PLAY
“Tea Time!” is a greasy spoon run by foul-mouthed matriarch Miss Betty and frequented by regulars like the kindhearted but totally incoherent Brooks. Two pressed and prim professors, Khent and Izzie, stop in for lunch—but they get more than a bad case of heartburn thanks to Liza and Gunner, a pair of young troublemakers. Part raucous societal commentary, part sinister cat-and-mouse tale, Counter/Top forces us to consider what our own upbringings say about us, and to what lengths we’ll go to hide them.
SEEKING ACTORS FOR THE FOLLOWING ROLES:
MISS BETTY F, mid-fifties. Queen of the establishment and takes shit from no one.
BROOKS M, seventies. Ancient, incomprehensible, gruff regular, but polite and kind. A person from a far-gone time period.
GUNNER M, twenties. Young, raw, simple, straightforward, on the denser side, quick to fly off the handle at a slight misunderstanding (and they happen often).
IZZIE F, mid-thirties. Good-natured, intelligent, proper, kind. She's led a very sheltered life but she tries to make the best of every situation.
LIZA F, twenties. Young, beautiful but caked in make-up and bad manners. Smart, sharp, manipulative. Underneath all that mortar, there's a very sensitive, battered girl.
KHENT M, late thirties. Smart, put-together, mannered, but there seems to be a darkness at the corners, something suppressed. Maybe he fought very hard to become the person he is today; maybe he's just pretty good at it.
