AUDITION NOTICE: Call for actors!!

Wide Eyed Productions presents A Girl Wrote It. An evening of One-Act plays by women playwrights. Because just 17% of America's main stage productions are written by women, Wide Eyed attempts to tip the scales and expose eager audiences to more fantastic theatre. A Girl Wrote It is an ambitious evening of 4 dark, dangerous and humorous plays with universal themes. Wide Eyed takes great pride in presenting cohesive, well designed collections, and A Girl Wrote It is sure to please even the most discerning audience. In a review of our last showcase, Martin Denton said it was "a sterling example of how to mount an evening of short plays."

The Plays:

Plight of the Apothecary by Elizabeth Birkenmeier; Sexually ambivalent siblings explore the limits of their post apocalyptic reality in this poetic, mind-bending, dark comedy.- Seeking: 2 females & 3 males- Early 20s- late 30s in appearance- must have great comic timing and an appreciation for the avant-garde.
–Directed by Justin Ness

Clementine by Lynda Green; A police stand-off is fertile ground for spiritual healing. A hostage situation turns into a beautiful night in. Seeking: 1 female, 2 males- 20s-30s.
– Directed by Jerrod Bogard

Selection by Kris Montgomery; Where do babies come from? In the future they come from screened donors chosen for their I.Q. scores. Sounds like a good idea-- unless you're below the line. Seeking: 3 females and 2 males- mid 20s to late 30s
- Directed by Tim Butterfield

The Return of Toodles Von Flooz by Lisa Ferber; "A film noir satire as dark as my third nipple and twice as funny." Betty O'Boozenberg, the Irish Jew, helps uncover the mystery of Toodles Von Flooz in this barroom morality tale. – Seeking: 2 females, 1 male- 20s-30s, with excellent comic timing- Looks similar Lauren Bacall, Gloria Grahame, Humphrey Bogart, Alan Ladd (and the like) are preferred.

"Jack & The Soy Beanstalk" continues to grow!

We are so excited over here at Team Wide Eyed.  Jack and the Soy Beanstalk, a young audience favorite at The New York International Fringe Festival in 2009, was recently published by Baker's Plays and is now available for purchase on Amazon!  Many, many happy congratulations to our resident playwright Jerrod Bogard, composer and company member Sky Seals and composer Emily Fellner.  Here's hoping that this lovely story reaches many generations of young theatregoers to come.
