News, but not the serious kind
Gosh, it looks like they’re really flying!
First, let me thank you all for coming in to audition. Looks like a great group of actors here.
You will all be trying out for parts in our edgy new play, Peter Pain.
Excuse me Mr. Director, I think there’s a typo here. Don’t you mean Peter PAN?
No. We’re staging the scenes of Peter and Tinkerbell flying in a whole new way. They’ll be hanging from piercings in the skin on their backs.
Ewwwwwww!!!! What is the artistic logic behind that?
Well, for one thing, it gives a whole new meaning to the name “Captain Hook.”
Okay actors, who wants to audition first? Has everybody had their tetanus shot? Remember, make sure you only fly over that big plastic tarp, so we don’t have to mop up the whole stage…
