At a table next to the dumpster behind a Vermont coffee shop, two friends straddling youth and adulthood spend their days pondering life, music, and Bukowski. When a lonely high-school student arrives on the scene, they take him under their wing and teach him everything they know. A play with music about connection, creation, and what it takes to grow up.
Roles: Open to both Equity and non-Equity. All roles are open to all ethnicities. EMC points may be received for Non-Equity performers. AEA members – this is a local hire (no per diem or housing/transportation provided). Non-Equity performers are paid a stipend for rehearsals and performances.
One actor has been pre-cast to play either KJ or Jasper
Jasper – Male, 31; a bit tightly wound – things have been rough but he’s trying to rise above that and focus on his novel. Should be able to sing in an alternative style and play the guitar.
KJ - Male, 30; pretty laid-back – his world revolves around a tiny group of friends and a very static routine - should be able to sing in an alternative style.
Evan – Male, 17; a bit awkward – hasn’t found his voice in the world yet.
Please prepare: for Jasper and KJ - one alternative song – vocal only okay, but even better to accompany self on guitar.
