Nebraska Rapture
An odd interview about pet-sitting.

Roles:
Billie (Wilhemenia) Lou Riddle. Perky, earnest, well- meaning. A true believer. Born and bred in Tennessee, her accent is apparent but not overwhelming. (40s-60s)

Emily Marks. A recent transplant to Nebraska. Professional dog sitter. Nondescript clothing and hair. She’s made every effort to disappear into the woodwork and yet she can’t. (20s-50s)

Grace Riddle. Daughter of Billie Lou. Sullen teen. Disaffected. Given to grunts, eye rolling and bitter outbursts. Wears teen rebellion clothing, whatever sort is popular at the moment. (Teen)

Toby Riddle. A dog. Kinda of a man. But really a dog. Billie believes Toby is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She has been sorely misinformed. TOBY is short, lumpy, somewhat unkempt. He has the ears and perhaps even the nose and whiskers of a dog, but otherwise looks like a guy you’d find sitting on the couch on any given Sunday watching the game and eating a bucket of wings. (Age. In dog years it's hard to tell)

Rehearsals for Askance, Askew, A Squirrel! will begin in January. All rehearsals will be in the evening Monday-Thursday. Performances are March 18, 29, 25 & 26.

Yes, really, I was investigated by feds and police because I took this photo of the Sun out my hotel room window in Boston.

A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

Roles available for 3 men and 6 females

Character Breakdown (Possibly there will be some double casting):

Narrator-female; any age with an otherworldly voice

Tilly Evans-female; teenager/adventurer

Agnes Evans-female; 20s, never imagined, nor wanted to go on an adventure

Chuck-male; teenager, big-boned, works at the local game shop

Miles-male; 20s, Agnes's boyfriend (could he be more boring?)

Lilith-female; teenager; Demon princess, enjoys battle and long walks on the beach

Kaliope-female; teenager; dark elf, stealthy and sultry

Orcus-male; teenager; big, red, demon, couch potato

Vera--female; 20s, school counselor (might be better suited for working at a meat packing plant)

Steve--male; teenager, beleaguered victim

Bugbear--any; any age, monster(s) brutish and violent (Could be multiple)

Farrah--female; any age, a fairy with an attitude

Succubi-females; teenager, evil cheerleaders. Roles available for two

Gelatinous Cube-irrelevant; any age, a marauding jello mold

Note: While the breakdown shows most roles for teens, what we really mean is believably pull off a teen. Sort of like 90210. The original, not that crappy remake. If you're a teen that's cool too, but if you've got some sort of eternal youth thing going... Let's give it a try.

There will be a great deal of stage combat. Experience isn't necessary, but you must be comfortable learning.

There is also a bit of dancing. Though there won't be dance auditions.

Performances will be March 19, 20, 26 & 27, 2016. All performances will be in The Robin Theatre.

Rehearsals will begin January 11 in the evenings.

Please be prepared to do cold readings from the script.

Directed by Ixion Artistic director, jeff croff.

I couldn't be more excited about these auditions. This is an opportunity to combine two of my passions, gaming and theatre.

Even if you aren't an actor, but might be interested in being stage crew/monster, let us know.

This is a long shot, but...

Does anyone know of a particular issue of Moon Knight (any iteration), which shows an altar?

Wow
Expansion Microscopy, A New Way to See the Brain.

Scientists at MIT have embedded slices of brain in the absorbent material found in diapers, which swells four to five times its normal size. And when they look at the expanded result using an ordinary light microscope, they see an unprecedented view of nerve fibers, cells, and proteins. It’s the deepest look into the brain we’ve ever had.

Ever have one of those days that you realize you're being a perfectionist, because then you don't have to move forward with something new in the story?
