M&D Playhouse is seeking a female of any age with strong comedic timing to play a 20-something Ben Affleck (yes, THAT Ben Affleck), for an upcoming socially-distant summer project, Matt & Ben. Ben is goofy, dim-witted, charming, and likeable. Believable Boston accent recommended. Familiarity with the script required.
Auditions will be held Sunday, July 5 starting at 6 p.m., by appointment only. Please prepare a two minute comedic monologue. Call backs, if needed will be held on Monday, July 6 at 6:30 p.m.
Matt & Ben depicts its Hollywood golden boys – before J-Lo, before Gwyneth, before Project Greenlight, before Oscar, before anyone gave a damn. When the screenplay for Good Will Hunting drops mysteriously from the heavens, the boys realize they’re being tested by a Higher Power. Written by Mindy Kaling & Brenda Withers.
The show will open on August 7, with seven performances running in repertory through September 4. Please email the director at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your appointment, or with any questions.
