Auditions for SCRAMBLED EGGS at B3 Theater announced for January 29 & 30


B3 Theater, Inc. is proud to announce auditions for the drama Scrambled Eggs.

Story Synopsis: A doctor with a demeanor like a used-car salesman has pioneered trans-orbital lobotomies, which he specifically targets at women and ex-soldiers.  Whitney is a bright, competent, balanced woman who slips up and asks her man what he is thinking.  Her husband fears she is losing it, and takes her to the doctor, who prescribes “scrambling her eggs,” e.g., a lobotomy.  The friends who congregate, mostly married couples, all react differently to Whitney’s oddness.   A terrifying and funny look at gaslighting and bypassing women’s power.

Director: Melissa Galván

Rehearsals Begin: Feb. 7, 2022

Run Begins: March 25, 2022

Run Ends: April 2, 2022

Character Breakdown:

WALTER: 40-50. Walter Jackson Freeman II. The father of the transorbital lobotomy. A hopeful, ignorant fraud. WALTER directs the energy from his failing marriage toward his patients, who he truly believes he is helping. Walter does, though, think that women need more fixing than men do. 

JAMES: 25-30. The straight-arrow husband to WHITNEY. JAMES saw the advertisement in the paper portraying the perfect nuclear family, and every decision he makes is in pursuit of that two-dimensional image. 

WHITNEY: 25-30. Very well read. WHITNEY thinks everything should be perfect. She also believes she has control over that. She tries so, so hard. 

DORIS: 25-30. WHITNEY’s sister, outwardly timid, inwardly strong. DORIS has always been a lesbian. She cares deeply for others, even when it isn’t in her best interest. 

RICHARD: 25-30. The life of the party drunk. RICHARD is a WWII veteran with a permanent leg injury which causes a slight limp. He doesn’t want to think about the war, so he drinks. He loves his wife, HELEN so, so much. 

HELEN: 25-30. Thrives in her role as the housewife. HELEN loves being a mom, loves being a friend, and loves being married to RICHARD. Maybe she doesn't know what else to love. 

MAGGIE: 25-30. Pursues what she wants...when she knows what that is. MAGGIE does not accept situations that aren’t good for her. She compensates for fear by pressing forward. She has always been a bisexual. 

FRANK: 25-30. Just wants everyone to be happy. FRANK is everyone’s welcome mat. He is well-read, but not nearly as much as WHITNEY is. He doesn’t know what it’s like to be mentally ill, but he’d like to understand.

Audition Prep: Auditioners are asked to prepare a 1-2 minutes contemporary dramatic monologue.

Audition Dates and Times: Saturday January 29th, from noon to 3PM;
and Sunday January 30th, from 4PM to 6:30PM.

Callbacks are January 30th, from 7PM-9:30PM
