Audition For Sincerely, Sin

Audition Instructions: 

Sincerely, Sin is a story about community and friendship. Four high-school best friends, Curiosity, Sincerity, Sunshine, and Katherine, reunite after years apart to celebrate Sincerity’s birthday. Unfortunately, this “squad” doesn’t click like it used to. Sinceirty decides that her birthday is the perfect opportunity to pull out all the stops and help her friends see how great they are together. This story is fun, crazy, and a little random. 

We are looking for performers of color who want a different theater experience. Our goal is to make a community of artists who can work on this piece without the looming stress of making “Great Theater”. We want to have fun, to support each other, and tell a new and original story. Its a great opportunity for performers who haven’t done theater before, or experienced actors who want to be involved in a less stressful process!

We don’t need you to rehearse a monologue, perform a song, or come with a headshot, For this audition, simply come and talk about high school! Be prepared to share a five minute story from your high school years! It can be fun, it can be serious, whatever you want it to be. Auditions will take place in the Afro-American Cultural Center Art Gallery (upstairs). The character descriptions are below but are all open to different interpetations! Please email branson.rideaux@yale.edu with any questions, HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!

SINCERITY:

 A black woman. 25 years old. Born in the foster-care system and raised by well-off and “well-intentioned” whites. Sincerity would prefer for people to call her Sin. Sin wears clothes that are always clean and holds herself well to match. (It is her birthday, please be nice).

CURIOSITY: 

A non-binary African-American person. 24. You know the kid that sold chocolate bars and chips out of a nike duffle bag, yeah, they’re like that. People call them C. C wears their hair short because it’s comfortable, and baggy pants because they need pockets. They prefer to sit in view of the door whenever possible.

SUNSHINE (RAY):

 A black woman. 24. She paints her vans, throws surprise parties when things get dull, and doodles on your arm when you aren’t looking. Some people call her Ray, like a Ray of Sunshine.

KATHERINE: 

An afro-latinx woman. 27. There for you when you need it and always speaks her mind.  The matriarch of the group if not because of her age, then at least because of her ability to reach practical and popular decisions.

EDWARD:

A black man. 23.
