Auditions for Gilligan's Fire Island!
January 13 & 14, 2017
Gilligan’s Fire Island by Jaime Morris
This new work is about Cody Tanner, a social media influencer/youtube sensation, on his way to perform on Fire Island. While on the ferry he has an unfortunate encounter with a performing drag queen, and goes overboard. In a dream state he finds himself on Gilligan’s Island and hilarity ensues.
Featuring an all-male cast, this show is a perfect opportunity for male actors in the Nashville area to stretch their chops in the areas of comedy and female impersonation. It is also a great opportunity for members of the drag community as... well as members of the transgender community to move into the theater world.
Auditions are cold readings from the script in groups. In order to get ample opportunity to read for the director, please plan to be at auditions for at least 1 hour (please arrive at least 1 hour prior to the end time of auditions if arriving later). You do not need to audition in drag for the female roles, however, you are welcome to.
Bring your calendars. Proposed rehearsal dates will be provided at auditions and you will be asked to list all conflicts. Bring a headshot/current pic and a resume (if you have one).
Performance dates are April 7,8, and 9th, & 13, 14, and 15th.
Cody Tanner: 20’s, twink type, good body (appears shirtless through most of show), very gay/flamboyant acting

KB Productions reserves the right to hold production specific auditions or to cast shows from our pool of talent.
We practice blind casting, meaning that we do not consider race or body type when offering roles unless the script specifies that we cast a certain race/type/gender.
