Audition Notice for Bad Mouth Theatre Co's production of MODERATION by Kevin Kautzman

Respond by
750.00 stipend

Bad Mouth Theatre Company is seeking two (2) actors for our upcoming production of MODERATION by Kevin Kautzman.

MODERATION follows two social media content moderators working at an unnamed, monolithic tech company. As they sift through the dark side of the Internet with designated “bio breaks” and the potential for promotion, they slowly lose their grip on reality in this darkly funny new play.

Most recently, MODERATION is being developed at the Valdez Theatre Conference this June and has received readings at the Blank, Broad Horizons, Spooky Action, and Up theaters. 



HE: Male, 30s-40s. A seasoned content moderator at the company, HE yearns for recognition from upper management and from his online streaming audience.

SHE: female, 20s-30s. SHE is new to the company, learning the ropes, and psychological dangers, of content moderation.



Rehearsals will take place from 9/4 - 10/2 in the evenings.

Show dates are: 

7:30pm on 10/3, 10/4, 10/5, 10/10, 10/11, 10/12

3:00 pm on 10/6, 10/13


Rehearsals will take place at the Center for Performing Arts in Minneapolis.

Shows will take place at The Hive in Saint Paul.



Actors will receive a stipend of $750.



Please record one (1) contemporary monologue no more than 2 minutes in length, comedic or dramatic. Please also attach your headshot and resume.

Please send your clip as an unlisted YouTube link to [email protected] with the subject “Moderation - [role] - [first name, last name]”.
