New York Stage Casting Update: Dec 15, 2009

The Drama Book Shop Stage Casting is Sponsored by

(NEW) The Bohemians
Please send your headshot and resume to Dave:

Second Best Bed Productions in New York City is casting for The Bohemians. This is an original play written in the style of an Aristophanic comedy. In fact, the play is so aptly composed, that many prominent scholars are convinced that this work is actually a lost play of the great Aristophanes. Though an academic consensus has yet to be reached on this subject, it is safe to assume that such theories are likely correct. (wink, wink.)

Mediocates: (20-30, Male) Mediocrates is an aspiring writer, poet, painter, potter, congo-drummer, juggler, mime, dancer, and actor. He is a proud artist, determined to live his independent life. He is bankrolled by his father.

Hippocarates: (40-60, Male) Hippocrates is a wealthy, waspy, doctor. He is the father of Mediocrates. He loves money, and hates art. When he's not busy fulfilling his potential, he's reading the Wall Street Journal, and finishing a glass of whisky. He disapproves of Mediocrates' lifestyle, but no son of his will live on the street.

Xanthius (18- 75, Male) Xanthius is Mediocrates' quick witted slave. His opinion, which is never accepted, is nearly always correct. Actors who submit for this role must be gifted physical comedians.

The Chorus (15- 60, Male and Female) Bohemians of all shapes, sizes, colors, and types. Bohemians who hail from every decade this century. These bohemians are hippies, beatniks, metal-heads, punkers, hipsters, homeless, ad inf. The Chorus is composed of Mediocrates' best friends.
