BACKGROUND ARTISTE, BY STEPHEN SMITH
Mary decides to spice up her life and join Alfredo Leache's Background Artistes Agency. But spending just a short time in the office Mary learns that being a walk-on artiste isn't all glamour. She faces the eccentric, elderly couple Walter and Enid, who pepper their speech with malapropisms, but later reveal their true surprising identity; secretary Jessica, who ceaselessly acts out her ambition to be an air hostess; and Alfred, the tireless boss who works hard for his actors against the odds.
We are auditioning for the role of Mary, who is a recently divorced British woman, 30-45 years old, who is looking to add some adventure to her life by becoming a background actor.
A British accent is required for this role. Auditions will be held via ZOOM from 3:00 – 4:30 Sunday April 25th. If you are interested in auditioning, please send your acting resume with contact information and a recent headshot to the Director, Kelly Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than April 23rd. We will reach out to you with your audition time and the ZOOM information. Thank you for your interest!
