The audition – funny short play for a cast of three about an audition

short comedy for 3 people


It’s always nerve wracking going to audition for a part in a play. Getting the words right, coming across the way you think the directors want you to come across. And when they simply look bored, its ten times worse. So when Misty arrives at her audition and they give her just ten minutes to prepare, she wants to scream. Until she finds out she has to. Scream, that is. Scream as though her audition depended on it. It does. A funny short play for a cast of three.
