Audition to be a dick….literally

So I am auditioning to play”Hyde” who plays the penis of “Henry” in a musical which is appropriately named “Henry and Hyde” The plot of the show is:

Henry & Hyde is an outrageous version of the classic tale. In this version, Henry Jeckyll is the young accountant for the infamous televangelist and “pit bull of American morals,” Jack Swigger. The show humorously chronicles Henry’s coming to grips with the dark side of his long-repressed sexual desires and his need to break free from the stifling constraints that he has allowed to be placed upon his behavior. The catalyst for his journey is his alter ego, Hyde, the life-sized personification of Henry’s penis. Through Hyde’s audacious guidance, Henry is finally able to find the love of his life and to balance his ideas of morality with the hunger of his sexuality. In the mean time, televangelist Swigger is haunted by his nightmares of God speaking to him in the form of the African-American, cross-dressing Gigi.

I think this sounds like a funny role for me, and more importantly it looks like a fun role. I’ve got an audition (I’m supposed to be singing something Acapella…what should I sing to prove I can play a penis?) tomorrow. I definitely hope I get it!

I can definitely say this is not a show that would be done in my hometown!
