"The Audition"
by Fred Passmore copyight 2004 Sheep Laughs Records

Synopsis: A Christian actor auditions for a role in a major Hollywood movie. As the unseen director puts him through a humiliating series of tryout scenes, the actor begins to realise that being a "crossover" artist leaves one sitting on the fence. And he could end up on the wrong side if he's not careful.

Setting: An empty stage. Bright lights shine up or down onto the stage on the actors. A stool, or preferably, a director's chair, and a folding chair, are all the stage setting needed.

Characters: Jake Shelby, the actor. Irwin, the stage assistant. Mr. O'Neal, the unseen Producer.

Props: A cardboard box, a toy machine gun (styled like an AK-47 or an Uzi), a folder with the printed script pages inside, a clipboard.

Notes: This script is easy to do because the actor playing the Producer is offstage on a microphone. He can have his script in front of him. The script pages that the actor and assistant read when doing the audition scenes can be held by the actors and read from as the actual script calls for.
