Audition will consist of one short contemporary comedic monologue and prepared sides. To request an audition please send your headshot/resume to tamara@octc.org and indicate availability during the two audition times.

Characters:
Rayna – A focused student and peer leader – since being ostracized from her friend group, she’s spending more and more of her time with a friend she met online, but whom she knows very little about.
Kazumi – A warm, friendly goofball whose appetite for mischief occasionally ventures into the cruel. He obsesses over his shoes and stylish appearance.
Antony – Spends most of his time carefully curating his trending YouTube channel, “Bacon Tacos,” and trying to keep up with his various online personas. Doesn’t care much for what’s happening IRL.

Performers will portray middle school students and should therefore read “young.” Performers of all ethnicities and genders are encouraged to apply.

· Rehearses 9/25 – 10/6, times TBD, but most likely daytimes.
