We’re looking for comedic actors with great energy and great memorization skills!

About the show:

In today’s modern age of politics, it has become about who you know, and not what you know, or the less you know, the higher you’ll go. Paul Slade Smith’s comedy takes a hard look that skewers politics and celebrates democracy with amazing satire and real characters.

The hero of the story is an average guy, Ned Newly, the former lieutenant governor. When a scandal forces the governor to resign, Ned has to step into the spotlight. The play opens just after Ned has given his first speech as the new governor. It was possibly the worst speech in history. Ned’s chief of staff, Dave, and his pollster, Paige, are trying to do damage control after Ned’s performance. Paige learns from Dave that Ned has been doing all the work for the previous governor for years. While we soon realize that Ned is the perfect person to run the state, the public sees him as the worst person to run their state.

Political  consultant Arthur Vance sees things differently: Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office. Unless the public is looking for… the worst candidate to ever run for office. 

Enter LuLu, a temporary employee hired as the Governor’s executive assistant. Personable, likable, friendly, impressively confident, and entirely inept. Without knowing it she has the air of a politician about her.

Available Roles:

PAIGE CALDWELL, female, 20s to 40s. A professional pollster. A smart, confident woman with a professional’s view of politics: she sees it as a series of contests to be won.

DAVE RILEY, male, 30s to 40s. The Chief of Staff to the new Governor. Very smart, but – despite years of experience in government – endearingly earnest and naïve on the subject of politics.

LOUISE PEAKES, female, 30s to 50s. A temporary employee hired as the Governor’s executive  assistant. Personable, likable, impressively confident, and entirely inept. Without knowing it, she has the air of a politician about her. The friendliness of her smile, and the confident way she looks you in the eye, would make you think, “I’d vote for her.”

NED  NEWLEY, male, 50s to 60s. The new Governor. A person of impressive ability, but a complete lack of confidence. A man awaiting permission to enter a room in which he is already standing.

ARTHUR VANCE, male, 50s to 60s. One of the most experienced and successful political consultants in the country. His overbearing personality, and confidence in his own opinions over the opinions of others, should make him dislikable. Still, his ego is more than tempered by the joy – even glee – he brings into the room. He’s a showman, but his excitement is 100% genuine, and it’s contagious.

RACHEL PARSONS, female, 30s. A TV reporter. She has the looks to be an on-air correspondent – though, if television had never been invented, she still would have been a journalist. Straightforward and honest, and inquisitive by nature. She’s seen enough of life – and politics – to be cynical, but she’s more apt to make a wry joke.

A.C. PETERSON, male, 30s to 50s. A TV cameraman. A working man, and – for most people – the guy you didn’t notice was there. This is fine with A.C.; he has a low tolerance for idiocy, and would rather not interact with anyone. His near-silence doesn’t make him seem unfriendly, just a bit of a mystery.
