Katy Visual and Performing Arts Center's Encore Players will be holding auditions for Empowered: How One Girl Scout Nearly Destroyed the World's Economy by Don Zolidis directed by Joshua Schorejs next Monday, May 1st from 7 to 9PM.
Amaryllis is determined to win her Girl Scout troop's cookie-selling contest, but she'll need more than charm to win first prize (a unicorn!) and avoid last place (which means getting kicked out of the troop!). So when sales droop, she naturally turns to the financial sector for advice. Soon she's faking a terminal illness, franchising her methods, and contracting with a payday lender to offer 30-year loans for cookies. A hysterical homage to Glengarry Glen Ross and send-up of the wild excesses of the financial crisis.
We are looking to cast an ensemble of 7 women and 3 men; actors of any age or ethnicity.
We ask that actors prepare 2 contrasting comedic monologues no longer than 3mins in total length.
Empowered will have performances July 7th, 8th, & 9th.
If you are interested in auditioning, or would like more information, please contact the director, Joshua Schorejs, to set up an audition time at
