2024 SVHE Play

Bad Auditions by Bad Actors



  • Synopsis: When the Casting Director and her assistant, Roger, try to cast the leads for Romeo and Juliet, each auditionee is worse than the last. Roger and the Casting Director see it all: from extreme method acting to interpretive dance to a woman who pretends to be a…cat? They begin to despair of ever finding two normal people who can just read the script, but then the Casting Director realizes that the answer might have been right in front of her the whole time.
  • Cast Size: 8 to 10 (most characters can be played by either gender)
  • Directed by: SVHE grads Alicia DeHaan and Karly Kroeker
  • Ages: SVHE members from the ages of 13 to 19 are welcome to audition. You do not need to have experience with acting to be a part of the show! In casting this show we are looking for people who are willing to try new things, step outside their comfort zones, and create some wild and crazy characters!
