Lucas Brickman is a new writer for "The Max Prince Show", a weekly comedy variety show circa 1953. Not only is Lucas surrounded by some of the funniest men (and one woman) in show business, but his boss, the larger than life Max Prince, has declared war with the NBC executives who fear the show's humor is too sophisticated for Middle America and doesn't belong in Joseph McCarthy's America.


Auditions consist of cold readings from the script. Auditioners are welcome to attend both evenings of auditions, but it is not required. All those who do audition will receive a complimentary ticket to a select performance of the production as way of saying "Thank You." saying

Role # 1 Max Prince
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Star of the Max Prince Show. He appears to be taller than he is because he exudes great strength. His strength comes more from his anger than from his physique. He dominates a room with his personality. You must watch him because he\'s like a truck you can\'t out of the way of. He is quixotic, changing quickly from warm, infectious laughter to sullen anger. He is often monosyllabic, offering a word or two to convey his thoughts.
