Auditions in Leander for The Desk Set by William Marchant, Way Off Broadway Community Players, November 4, 2013

Way Off Broadway Community Players Leander TXWay Off Broadway Community Players will be holding open auditions on Monday, November 4, 2013 at 7pm for the 3rd show of our 17th season, The Desk Set by William Marchant, and is being directed by Geoff Rake. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. There are roles for 6 women and 4 men, age range from 20’s – 40’s.

A smoothly running network reference department in a large company, headed by Bunny and her team of women who have an encyclopedic knowledge of facts and figures, quickly answers people’s inquiries. The big boss, trying to find ways to run the company better, faster, and more efficiently, hires an outside source to help. Enter the efficiency expert who says they need to install Emma, a super computer, who will do the work of many people, soon replacing entire departments. But an Electronic Brain cannot best Human Brains. In a game of wits, Bunny and her co-workers cause Emma to blow fuses which renders the computer powerless. Here is a telling comedy rich in hilarity for anyone who has ever worked in an office…and has done battle with the machines.
