Like A Billion Likes

by Erik Forrest Jackson

Directed by TBD

 

Audition Sides:  Alix/Jacey     Alix/Misty     Colleen/Jacey     Colleen/Perry     Misty     Misty/Perry

Misty Riggs is a nobody. No, really, she is - that’s an undisputed fact. But just as she’s starting sophomore year, she gets the notion she should try to stand out somehow before it’s too late. Misty’s gambit, however, only cements her loserdom, and after one blow too many, she makes a final, desperate bid for glory - the terrible culmination of her burning desire to be recognized for something, anything, no matter how she achieves it.

Roles:
Open to both Equity and Non-Equity. All roles are open to all ethnicities. EMC points may be received for Non-Equity performers. Non-Equity performers are paid for rehearsal and performances.

Misty - Female. To play 15. Awkward, plain, unfiltered, naive but thinks she’s the opposite. Eager to please up to a point. A bit beaten down. Believes there’s a better life out there for her, if she could only find it. Emotionally immature for her years.

Alixandra Benson - Female. To play 15. Confident and at times commanding, but also guarded. Quick witted, cutting and sly. Likes to control situations. Emotionally mature for her years.

Jacey Collier - Male. To play 17-year-old non-trans hetero male who identifies quite comfortably as gender-fluid. Quiet but self-possessed, intelligent, always gauging the situation. Most everyone else is more focused on his identity than he is.

Colleen Benson - Female. Mid/Late 30s-40s. Attractive, warm, open, fairly direct, with a loneliness beneath; tries very hard to give whatever it is that anyone might need from her.

Perry Segars - Male. Mid/Late 40s-Early 50s. Cocky, pretty sure he’s irresistible. Doing his darndest to keep a hold on a world he feels is slipping away from him. Perhaps an ex athlete who abhors the idea of being behind or losing.
