All Beaches Experimental Theatre will hold auditions for “The Vandal” at 2 p.m. Sunday, June 23.
“The Vandal,” written by Hamish Linklater, is a dark comedy with many twists and turns. The ABET performances, directed by Caryl Butterly, are scheduled for Oct. 18-19, 25-27 and Nov. 1-3.
Available roles include:
■ 40-50ish woman: A woman on a precipice. At the beginning of the play, she is in survival mode with little energy left for the expected niceties and pleasantries. One gets a sense there was once a smart, funny, vibrant woman there, but life has made her bitter and jaded.
■ Boy in his late teens: A ball of energy. Very talkative with a keen intelligence and curiosity. Most people would instantly like him, but his youth and outgoing personality mask something deeper at his core.
■ Man in his mid-40s to mid-50s: Somewhat resigned to life. Has a crusty edge and dry sense of humor. He owns a small liquor store. He’s seen it all and not much ruffles him anymore.
Each role may be played by any ethnicity and the director has a strong desire for a multi-ethnic cast. Final casting decisions will be based on how the actors would bring the characters to life, rather than having a specific visual look. An American accent is required for each role. Actor ages do not need to match as long as performer can believably play the character’s age range. Note: All auditioning actors must be comfortable with strong adult language.
For the audition, bring a resume and, if possible, attach or include a photo. The auditions will consist primarily of reading from the script.
ABET is located at 544 Atlantic Blvd. in Neptune Beach. For more information, go to www.abettheatre.com.
