Jake Revolver Freelance Secret Agent
-A Radio-Noir Parody Written by Matthew Konkel
Directed by Tom Marks

Wherever there’s a right needing to be wronged, he’ll be there. Whenever there’s food needing to be eaten, he’ll have a fork. And whatever you can do, he can do better. Some say he’s not human. Others say he’s just a man. Only a small percentage say he’s a woman. But no matter what he is, his name and title remain the same. Into the light of the dark black night comes… Jake Revolver, Freelance Secret Agent!

TENTATIVE REHEARSALS for Jake Revolver will be from May 25th-June 4th and Performances will run from June 5th-June 27th. Please bring all conflicts with you to the audition.

 

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS FOR JAKE REVOLVER:
RADIO ANNOUNCER, Transitional character used to shift between story acts and to support the radio drama concept. Could be done as a recorded voice over.
JAKE REVOLVER, A freelance secret agent— basically a private detective in the tradition of Sam Spade or Philip Marlowe. Projects a persona of resourceful intelligence, sharp wit and a tough exterior, however, he often has spells of emotional frailty and dense intellect.
EMMY AWARD, Dedicated secretary to Jake Revolver. Resilient and perceptive, Emmy is a smart woman who’s in love with Jake Revolver and harbors a big secret.
ANGEL FATALE, Her name tells her story. The traditional femme fatale of the noir genre. Angel exudes a false frightened and helpless exterior to manipulate Jake Revolver and serve her own personal nefarious agenda.
NARRATOR, Jake Revolver’s chronicler used to speak Jake’s thoughts and
supplement his actions. At times Narrator acts as a partner to Jake. He’s
confident, omniscient and bold— also sometimes pushy and extremely verbose.

  1. ANN DANDERSON, Classic overly suspicious and obsessive crime genre police officer. Danderson is an experienced and thorough cop with a fanatical agenda to take down Jake Revolver.

DASHIELL ROLL, Jake Revolver’s former partner. Once a dedicated partner, he’s now believed to be dead. He blames Jake for his near-death and returns to exact his revenge. He is smart and obsessive and also totally insane.
RAYMOND RATTLE, Another of Jake Revolver’s former partners. In the past he was a supportive colleague and a good agent but in present day he’s become suspicious and irrational.

  1. CRAY, A client from Jake Revolver’s past. A mysterious presence, cool and calculating.

WINDY, Shady owner and operator of Breezy’s Nightclub.
TRUDY, Plastic, affected radio commercial spokesperson.
WALLACE, Hapless and innocent radio commercial representative.

aMUSEd
– A fast paced, fun-filled dramatic-comedy
Written and Directed by Megan Ann Jacobs

Alone in a New York apartment, the god of comedy is melancholy, and he wants everyone to know it. Sebastian, the last remaining Greek Muse, mourns the passing of his latest instrument and friend, passing time by successfully spooking, pranking, and sabotaging every opportunity for a potential replacement. Until Nikki. Driven by her own personal demons, Nikki stubbornly battles with Sebastian for mastery of the apartment. Their feud gets all the more complicated when an over-involved landlord, well-intentioned fiancé, and a no-nonsense police officer get involved. “aMUSEd” captures and explores our tendency to honor the dead by refusing to live, and leads us, through the ancient art of comedy, to live with the past and move forward.

REHEARSALS for aMUSEd will be from August 31st-September 23rd and Performances will run from September 24th-October 17th. Please bring all conflicts with you to the audition.

 

Character Descriptions for aMUSEd audition:

Nikki: a young, well-educated, willfully independent lawyer who is haunted by a past she does nothing but stubbornly run from and fight to forget.

Sebastian: a witty, clever, and picturesque man who seems to appear to be in his twenties or thirties, but has a strange air about him.

Tyler: an extremely talkative, naive, and overbearing man who is also landlord of the apartment.

Kasey: a strict with others, but easy on herself police officer with an attitude.
All characters are great fun and appear more than once. Sides will be released for each character, as we get closer to the audition date.
