Like the majority of you I will be attending Cal Arts this fall. However I happen to be from Hawaii, which means I will have no friends at Cal Arts. So, in order to prevent an awkward transition phase I will be holding auditions for new best friends on September 7 through the 10th. Keep in mind these auditions are not limited to drama school students only. Actually you do not even have to go to Cal Arts; however students of Cal Arts will be given preferential treatment.
All individuals interested should have one contemporary monologue that demonstrates the type of friend they will be. If you think any of your other talents or abilities might strengthen your audition please do not hesitate to share them with us. * Do not forget. Bring your Head shots, resumes and letters of recommendations.
Note:* Currently, the individual who is portraying my black friend on Maui is traveling to LA for college as well. So, he will be maintaining the role of Black Friend for the time being. Qualified individuals of African American descent should not hesitate to express interest in the event that space becomes available.

Confidence Man #2
I would like to thank all of you who are auditioning. Preemptively apologizing to all who do not get cast. It just means I did not want to spend time with you. There was nothing you could have done about it; the other people who auditioned were just plain better than you.
