Auditions for Johnny Easy and the Student Affair will be held Oct. 13th-16th in the KBVR TV conference room, Memorial Union East (Snell Hall) 210, by appointment between 5 and 9 pm. To set up an audition appointment, visit the KBVR front office in Snell Hall 210 or contact Margaret Anderson at:
We are asking everyone to audition with an excerpted scene from the script and to audition for either of the two main characters, Johnny or Scarlett. If we like what we see and think you'd be appropriate for another role, we'll ask you back and give you the other character's material.
You can view/download/print the scene here:
Scene 1: Johnny Easy and the Student Affair
You do not need to memorize the scene, in fact it's better if you don't, but come prepared to read from the text in character. Auditions will take no longer than 20-30 minutes, giving us time to go over your character and availability, etc.
For your use, descriptions of the two main characters are below. Remember that even if you would like to or only have time for a minor part, we still ask that you use the Johnny/Scarlett material found in the scene above.
Contact Margaret Anderson if you have any questions and we hope to see you at the auditions!
Johnny Easy: The Gumshoe
Disillusioned, acerbic, wary. A student worker in Lost and Found, Johnny is a man with a past and just enough conscious to have it trouble him. Embodying a detective from his fedora down to his rough and rumbling quips, he often finds himself a little too good at his job. Will he risk it all to solve the most important case of his career?
Scarlett Black: The Femme Fatale
Seductive, secretive, enthralling. Scarlett, a grad student, uses a sharp mind and smooth skin to get what she wants, when she wants. Glamorous within the muddy world of academia, she stands above her lesser coeds. Is Scarlett tempting enough to lure Johnny into her trap?
