Evie Malone – gamer girl, college senior and confirmed virgin – has it all figured out. Not only does she command a top-ranked guild in Warcraft with her online boyfriend, she also makes a little cash on the side writing love letters for people who’ve screwed up their relationships. Love is like Warcraft, after all. It’s all about strategies, game plans, and not taking stupid risks. Well, that’s what she thinks… until she actually falls for a guy. In Real Life. And no amount of gaming expertise will help her out when she finds herself with a non-virtual, totally real, and incredibly cute boyfriend, who wants more from her than she’s willing to give.
- Evie: early to mid twenties. Evie is smart and creative. She is capable of great charm and is a natural born leader, as long as she doesn’t have to talk to an actual person. With people she is shy and awkward, but still possesses a quirky magnetism.
- Kitty: early to mid twenties. Kitty is a bit of a hedonist, with a love for parties and men. On the surface she might seem selfish, but deep down she possesses all the qualities of a true friend.
- Raul: early to late twenties. Raul is handsome in a classic sense. Underneath his fair looks is kind, sensitive, and loving soul.
- Ryan: early to late twenties. Ryan is the quintessential loner gamer, he is Evie’s online boyfriend and displays a bit of a possessive streak.
- Male Ensemble: early to late twenties. Good character actor responsible for multiple roles.
- Female Ensemble: early to late twenties. Good character actor responsible for multiple roles.
- Auditions will be held in pre-scheduled 10 minute time slots.
- Please contact Kayte Davies, at [email protected] with your headshot & resume, and to schedule a time.
- Please prepare a 1-2 minute comedic monologue.
Deadline to Apply: March 16, 2016
