The Porthole Players have set auditions for their upcoming production of “Bad Auditions ... On Camera,” by Ian McWethy and Carrie McCrossen.
Auditions will be held online on Jan. 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in five-minute slots. A sign-up form will be available online at the Porthole Players website — www.portholeplayers.com.
This play tells the story of a casting director who has one day to find an actor to fill the role of a lawyer in a crime procedural. But what seems like a simple task proves impossible when the pool of actors includes stage thespians who can’t tone it down for the screen, performers completely unable to keep themselves in frame, and an actor who seems to believe this is a toothpaste commercial. Vote for who you think should get the role when you step behind the doors of a casting session in this hilarious comedy.
Roles are available for six women, five men and two of either gender. The play will be directed by Jennifer Hamilton.
The rehearsals will be Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays, from Jan. 17 to Feb. 19, with either taping or a live performance set for Feb 20.
