BC Theater to hold auditions for ‘This is Our Youth’ on Aug. 31 & Sept. 1

Fri Aug 20, 2021

Brazosport College Theatre is seeking actors for its first production of the Fall semester, “This is Our Youth.”

Auditions will be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, August 31 and Wednesday, September 1 at The Seidule Theatre on the Brazosport College campus.

Set in New York in 1982, “This Is Our Youth” follows 48 hours in the lives of three very lost young souls: Warren, a dejected young guy who has just stolen $15,000 from his abusive, tycoon father; Dennis, his charismatic, drug-dealing friend who helps Warren put the stolen money to good use; and Jessica, the anxiously insightful young woman who Warren yearns for. 

Auditions are open to students and non-students. College credit and scholarships are available for participants.

Roles include: 

Dennis Ziegler: A grungy, athletic, very quick, dynamic, fanatical and bullying kind of person. He is amazingly good-natured and magnetic, but insanely competitive and almost always successfully so.  

Warren Straub: He is thoughtful and has spent most of his adolescence in hot water. However, he is just beginning to find beneath his natural eccentricity a dogged self-possession, despite being enormously self-destructive. He is, above all things, a trier.  

Jessica Goldman: A fairly cheerful, but nervous girl, prone to a watchful defensiveness as a method of coping with her nervousness. Despite her prickliness, she is basically friendly and interested in Warren.  

“This is our Youth” is for mature audiences and all participants under the age of 18 will require parent/guardian permission.

Rehearsals will be from 6 to 9 p.m. on Monday through Friday, Sept. 3 through Sept. 29. Tech rehearsals could run later. Performances are scheduled for 8 p.m. on Sept. 30 through Oct. 2.

Those auditioning should be prepared to read from the script. An audition form can be found at forms.office.com/r/GZCxSL4SBC.
