Actors, Answer the Call – Audition for BLT’s ‘Dead Man’s Cell Phone’ Aug. 18-19

Burien Little Theatre will be holding auditions for the comedy “Dead Man’s Cell Phone” Aug. 18 – 19 at their theatre at 14501 4th Ave SW in Burien.

Written by Sarah Ruhl, BLT is seeking actors to portray two male characters in their 30s to 50s, and four female characters in their late 20s to 70s.

Actors of all ethnicities are encouraged to audition.

SYNOPSIS:

Jean is sleepwalking through her life until she answers a dead stranger’s cell phone. It turns out to be a wake-up call that sends her on a date with the dead man’s brother, a drinking binge with his wife, a mysterious rendezvous with his mistress, and a trip to the afterlife and back. This film noir-tinged surreal comedy by playwright Sarah Ruhl, Pulitzer-Prize finalist for her play The Clean House, traces one woman’s accidental quest to make a few people feel a little bit better about themselves. Dead Man’s Cell Phone is also about how we memorialize the dead and how that remembering changes us, and the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.

Performances will be held at Burien Little Theatre from Sept. 28 – Oct. 21.

Rehearsals begin in late August.

$100 stipend provided.

Directed by Maggie Larrick.
