Auditions for None of the Above

Anamosa - Starlighters II Theatre in Anamosa will hold auditions for the new comedy, None Of The Above, by award-winning playwright Jenny Lyn Bader on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, April 10, 11, 12 at 7 pm on the mainstage at the Starlighters Theatre, 136 E. Main Street, in Anamosa. The director is Bob Furino.


This character driven play takes place in the urban setting of New York City where we meet Jamie, a 17-year-old daughter of excessively affluent parents, living on the Upper East Side. She would rather spend her time being a cause célèbre at her exclusive private high school than studying for the SATs. To take on the challenge of tutoring her, Jamie’s father hires Clark, a geeky college student who likes to count the words in every sentence he hears. On the surface, the duo couldn’t be more different. But when Jamie learns of the conditions and rewards in her father’s contract with Clark, the snap judgments between the two fade away, and they form their own pact, which might just prove to benefit both of them. Written by critically acclaimed playwright, Jenny Lyn Bader, this endearingly clever new comedy will prove that in life, the answer isn’t always as clear cut as A, B or C.

Production Dates:
June 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 26
Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 2 pm

Characters in None Of The Above:
Jamie (Female; Late teens-early 20s)

Actors do not necessarily need to be in the age ranges given, as long as they could possibly play someone in that age range. Prepared monologues are welcome at auditions, but the director wants to emphasize that they are NOT required in order to audition for the show.
