Part sketch comedy, part social commentary --a new play from a local playwright A. Emmanuel Leadon. Framed loosely by the book Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now by Jaron Lanier, this show taps into the darker, more paranoid side that comes with social media use. The tone of the play feels like MadTV crossed with The Colored Museum by George C. Wolfe. The show is a work of fiction and takes us on a journey to see the effects of social media in our everyday lives.
We are looking for a group of 5-7 comedians versatile in impressions/voices. Character breakdown listed below. Script available for perusal upon request. Show will be a mix of live performance & filmed sketches. This is an in work script so some changes can still happen.
To be considered: please send headshot/recent photo & resume/performance work to email@example.com
If considered, audition sides will be e-mailed to you with instructions.
