MBT Rep presents The Nerd by Larry Shue
Open Auditions – All Roles Available
Director – Corey McDaniel
Characters (age and ethnicity flexible) –
WILLUM Cubbert (male, mid-30s). A professional architect, likable and sincere, unexciting and set in his ways. Willum needs a little gumption.
TANSY McGinnis (female, about Willum’s age). The woman about to choose between her boyfriend Willum and her career as a weather girl. Tansy is bubbly, wry, and definitely her own woman.
AXEL Hammond (male, about Willum’s age). Dry, wise-cracking, irreverent, devil-may-care theater critic who has never done an anonymous favor for anyone.
Warnock WALDGRAVE (male, 35-60). Powerful, stern, and successful businessman totally lacking in imagination. The last time Waldgrave smiled was 30 years ago, and then it was gas.
CLELIA Waldgrave (female, 30-50). Patient but strained, harried but calm, the picture of a schoolteacher almost but not quite stressed to her breaking point.
THOR Waldgrave (male, 8-11). The son of Warnock and Clelia Waldgrave is a brat who is a temperamental, loud, boisterous, irrepressible young monster.
RICK Steadman (male, mid-30s). Tactless, selfish, insensitive, aggravating, pointlessly dull, and the worst houseguest ever.
Prepared: Two contemporary contrasting monologues, one comedic. No more than 3 minutes total.
Auditioners may also be asked to work with cold readings following their monologues.
