Author's Notes:
Next Actor, Please! premiered at the Lakeshore Players Advanced Acting Teen Workshop on April 28, 2008.

The play is designed to be easy to direct. We did some fun things: Esme appeared early and spied on the "goings-on" before she had her scene. Periodically, she would hide in different places on the set. You could do it very simply with a desk and a chair - or you can do it on an empty stage, a stage that is "set" for another show (which is how we did it) or in the cafeteria!

At an audition, the director is overwhelmed when the actors include “The Swamp Sheik,” a dictator-like Shakespearean actress, and a delusional secret agent. Next to these amusingly artsy thespians, the vindictive gypsy, the homeless guy and the actress prone to panic attacks seem normal.
