Auditions for The Billy Ocean/Teena Marie Confluence of 1985 by Max Langert, Punchkin Repertory, September 26 - 27

Received directly:

Punchkin Repertory Theatre is auditioning for their upcoming production of The Billy Ocean/Teena Marie Confluence of 1985 by local playwright, Max Langert. The play will be performed at Frontera Fest from Jan. 24 - Feb 5.

Auditions are at the Dougherty Arts Center, 1110 Barton Springs Road (click for map) on Monday, September 26 and Tuesday, September 27 from 6-9pm. Callbacks are on Thursday, September 29 from 6-9pm. Monday will be auditions for the female role. Tuesday will be auditions for the male role(s).

PLOT: Allison is a young woman who is fascinated by charts and has been plotting her emotional life for the past 20 years. She shares the ups and downs of the past, specifically focusing on her love life. She seems to have a pattern of falling into one disappointing relationship after another. Her only hope lies in two love songs from the 80s which have a seemingly karmic convergence.


Allison, 32, ambitious, analytical, a bit naive when it comes to relationships, disconnected from her family, always yearning for something more
Ronnie/Steve/Eric/Morgue Guy/Doctor, generally in 30s age range, all played by the same actor
Ronnie: Allison's brain-damaged brother
Steve: A difficult, stubborn, troubled adjunct professor with a tendency to lie
Eric: A frustrated wanna-be celebrity, possibly related to Michael J. Fox
Morgue Guy: Nice enough guy, works in morgue
Doctor: Seems sweet, works in mental hospital, has poor aim

The play is dialogue heavy with many long monologues for the female role. Requires a strong commitment from both actors.
Please come with a prepared 1-minute monologue (contemporary, non-dramatic, serio-comic). Will also do a cold read from the script.
Email your resume and headshot to, along with your preference for an audition slot.
