WHEN – Wednesday, July 13 & Thursday, July 14 from 6:00-9:00pm

WHERE – Theatre on the Square, 627 Massachusetts Ave., Indianapolis

HOW – No appointment necessary, just show up at any time during the audition times and prepare a 90-second comic monologue. You may be asked to stay and read from the script.

WHO – The casting breakdown is listed below.

Julia Budder, 30-50, a first-time producer of the Broadway play The Golden Egg

Peter Austin, 30-50, the nervous playwright

James Wicker, 40-60, an egotistical but insecure comic actor who passed up a chance to star in the play for a television series—which has since been cancelled

Virginia Noyes, 40-60, dissolute, aging star of the play; she wears an ankle monitor and drinks and snorts cocaine throughout

Frank Finger, 20-30, the young, egomaniacal, “genius” British director

Ira Drew, 50-70, insecure theater critic

Gus, 18-25, who checks the coats and hats but has aspirations for a Broadway career

WHY – This will be the Indianapolis premiere of the highly acclaimed and hilarious 2014 Broadway script by the brilliant Terrence McNally and a star vehicle for Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Stockard Channing, Megan Mulally, Rupert Grint, Micah Stock and F. Murray Abraham as well as the season opener for one of Indy’s premier arts organizations.
