Chino Community Theatre is holding auditions for BOY GETS GIRL, written by Rebecca Gilman and directed by Christopher Diehl.

Auditions will be held on Sunday, March 26 at 6 pm and Monday, March 27 at 7 pm at the Seventh Street Theatre (13123 Seventh Street, Chino). Auditions will consist of cold reading from the script. All roles are open. There is no pay.

BOY GETS GIRL will be performed as part of CCT’s “3 on the Edge” Festival (May 25 through June 11, 2017), in repertory with two other shows, ART and STOP KISS. Auditions for those shows will be held at the same time as BOY GETS GIRL and those auditioning may read for all three if desired. Information for the other two productions is available on our Facebo…ok page or on our website: www.chinocommunitytheatre.org.

Rehearsals will generally be Monday through Thursday evenings. A more detailed rehearsal schedule will be available at auditions.

SYNOPSIS:
New York reporter Theresa Bidell reluctantly goes on a blind date with Tony, a friend of a friend. Unfortunately, sparks definitely do not fly, and when she decides not to see him again, Tony doesn’t get the message. At first flattered (albeit slightly annoyed) by his continuing attention, Theresa’s attitude gradually changes to one of fear and fury when Tony starts to menace her and those around her.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:

4 men, 3 women

THERESA (30’s-40’s): Smart, professional writer. She is very focused on her career and while not interested in a serious relationship, is still willing to go on a blind date (albeit very reluctantly). She would describe herself as a feminist and continually attempts to show the men in her life how to understand women without objectifying them.

TONY (30’s): Theresa’s blind date. Handsome. At first appears to be a nice, friendly guy (though somewhat insecure and emotionally troubled), but later on he is revealed to be obsessive and controlling.

HOWARD (40’s-50’s): Theresa’s boss. Divorced. Intelligent and kind but occasionally (and maybe unintentionally) chauvinistic.

MERCER (30’s): Theresa’s co-worker and friend. He is as much a proponent of feminism as Theresa is, but that doesn’t stop him from occasionally acting sexist himself.

HARRIET (20’s): Theresa’s new secretary. She is young and inexperienced. Sweet, but slightly dim.

MADELEINE (30’s-40’s): Police officer assigned to Theresa’s stalking case. She has her own history of attempting to be respected as a woman.

LES (60’s-70’s): Cult filmmaker obsessed with women’s breasts. Despite his crudeness and chauvinism, Theresa discovers a more vulnerable side to him in the course of their interactions.
