Dragon Productions has already held its 2013 general auditions, but will need to fill some roles in the near future. We also attend the Theatre Bay Area South Bay auditions. We welcome any actors to come to contact us directly regardless if they attended the TBA South Bay generals. Dragon offers stipends for non-union actors as well as the occasional BAPP contract for Equity actors. If you were unable to attend the 2013 general auditions, please email your headshot and resume to Jason at firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration as not all roles in 2013 have been cast.

July 12th - August 4th, 2013
“When a woman says she needs new shoes, what she really wants is a new job. When she says she needs a new house, she wants a new husband. And when she says she wants a new car, she wants a new life.” Becky Foster is suddenly offered a chance at an adventure, and gets entangled in a web of lies that result in a hilarious ride. Written by playwright Steven Dietz, author of 2011's comedy Private Eyes.

The inaugural production of Chicago's legendary Steppenwolf Theatre, this dark comedy explores the lives of the three Reardon sisters, who have recently lost their mother.

Rich and Famous
by John Guare
Directed by Meredith Hagedorn
October 11th - November 3rd, 2013
One of "the world's oldest living promising young playwrights," Bing Ringling's 844th script is finally about to be produced, bringing Bing dreams of being, well, rich and famous. A surreal musical comedy, Rich and Famous is part vaudeville, part absurd, and an entirely funny romp through the perils of being a successful artist, by playwright John Guare, the genius who also wrote The House of Blue Leaves and Six Degrees of Separation.
- BING RINGLING
1 male and 1 female to play the following roles:
- DANTE ALIGHIERI, BEATRICE, VIRGIL, THE SPIRIT OF THE ENTIRE DIVINE COMEDY, THE PEOPLE OF THE INFERNO, PURGATORIO & PARADISIO, BLACK PEOPLE, WHITE PEOPLE, STRAIGHT PEOPLE, GAY PEOPLE, ACTORS, ACTRESSES, PRODUCERS, DIRECTORS, COMPOSERS, MOTHERS, FATHERS, BOY FRIENDS, GIRL FRIENDS, OLD FRIENDS, NEW FRIENDS, FAILURES, FANS, STARS
by David Mamet
directed by Troy Johnson
November 22nd - December 15th, 2013
A lesbian, a turkey lobbyist, and a Native American walk into the White House... it's not a bad joke, it's November by David Mamet (Glengarry Glen Ross). There's hilariously biting commentary on the state of the union, a politically incorrect *and possibly inept) president in the death throes of his failing re-relection campaign, and some Thanksgiving turkey pardons for sale - so basically it's vintage Mamet. Please be aware that this play contains a good deal of adult language (which is also vintage Mamet).
Prepare 2 contemporary contrasting monologues - 2 mins total.
