How Auditions Will Work
Everyone who auditions must register and complete an audition form online.
The audition form will be available starting March 1st.
The link will be posted here and on the Twin Beach Players Facebook page.
Everyone MUST audition with one of the monologues below. It does not need to be memorized. It can be read from a piece of paper or from your phone. I want to see what kind of character you can create, not that you can learn lines. All monologues are from the play. Everyone WILL get points in my head if you READ THE PLAY. No, you can’t do another monologue unless it’s from the play.
About the Play
Twin Beach Players is excited to announce our first LIVE Teen Show since 2019! When eccentric billionaire J. Leslie Arlington is murdered, a clueless detective finds the suspects are all reluctant to admit their alibis . . . because they were all committing other ridiculous crimes at the time. You never know what’s coming next when your suspects include disgruntled chefs, teen detectives, and vengeful divas, but one thing’s for certain: Every alibi is absolutely absurd. This show is going to be a blast to rehearse and produce!
