Virtual Venue Theatricals presents W-YRD, the premiere show in our New Works series. Performers will have the unique opportunity to participate in the workshop to performance experience: providing feedback, fine-tuning characters, and developing a fully-realized collaborative production. Rehearsals to begin in November, break in December for revisions, and resume in January for brush-ups and filming.
Radio station W-YRD is the hub for a list of local songwriters: high-school lovers, overworked mothers, jealous besties, and zealous pastors. In a small town that keeps getting smaller, the radio tower broadcasts their emotions as music while they navigate relationships, regrets, and rediscovery. An original musical by Caleb Redslob.
All roles performed remotely with performances to stream on virtualvenuetheatricals.com.
Able Doran (Lead): Female, 18+ WORK FROM HOME
An angsty and sarcastic teenager; looking for her place in the world. Probably but not implicitly queer. Aspiring songwriter.
Ollie Rogers (Lead): Male, 18+ WORK FROM HOME
Likeable high schooler, gold retriever type. Charming and comforting to those he meets. Scatterbrained.
Reagan Rogers (Lead): Female, 35-50 WORK FROM HOME
Ollie’s mother, hardworking. Diligent and determined to provide her son a path to success. Sensible and caring with a smart wit.
Dirk Samson (Supporting): Male, 35-50 WORK FROM HOME
A pastor with a past. Seeks redemption with all the resources his lucrative religion has to offer. Pining for a lost love.
Mackenzie (Supporting): Female, 18+ WORK FROM HOME
High school soccer star who seeks purpose off the playing field. Friendly and confident, the object of Ollie’s affections.
Artie (Lead): Male, 35+ WORK FROM HOME
The charismatic and off-beat host of W-YRD radio station. Delights in the discovery of hidden gems. Mind like a steel trap.
Ezra (Supporting): Gender Fluid, 20+ WORK FROM HOME
Radio DJ, aspiring solo artist, and self-proclaimed member of the W-YRD royal court. Quirky and expressive. Reads auras.
Andrea Doran (Supporting): Female, 35-50 WORK FROM HOME
Authoritarian; image obsessed. Mother to Abel; out of touch with the emotional needs of her daughter.
