Non-equity audtions for for Idris Goodwin's HOW WE GOT ON, directed by Summer L. Williams
Company One is holding auditions for their Main Stage production of Idris Goodwin’s, HOW WE GOT ON directed by Summer L. Williams (July/August 2013).
It’s 1988: Hank, Julian and Luann have each finally found the beats and dubs that make the suburbs bearable, but they need each other more than they know. Rap battles and poetry in parking lots lead to dreams of something more, as a DJ takes us to the flipside, loops us into the remix, and breaks it down. Spoken word poet and hip-hop playwright Idris Goodwin MC’s a theatrical coming-of-age mix tape about how we become the people we’re meant to be, flowing and rhyming our way to adulthood.
Characters (2F, 2M):
HANK: 15, black boy, idolizes Big Daddy Kane.
JULIAN: 15, bi/poly racial boy, always 10 degrees hipper than Hank.
LUANN: 15, black girl, idolizes MC Lyte. She looks like the last person to listen to rap music, let alone create it.
SELECTOR: Female, Late 30’s-40’s, a woman of color with a voice for underground radio. She speaks to the audience, to the characters –she controls this world as she spins vinyl.
