Beta Blockers/Reverse Gossip

By Ned O'Reilly and Barrie Cole

Directed by Ned O'Reilly

Beta Blockers is back, bringing a friend from out of town!

New comic shorts from Ned O'Reilly examine the chemical reactions that make us who we are. Comic monologues by Chicago playwright Barrie Cole show who we are when we think nobody's listening--or when we just don't care.

Auditions will be held on the following days:


The Gossip will already be spreading through Madison before auditions, August 13, 14, and 16 at Lakeview Moravian Church from 6:30-8:30. Auditions will consist of cold readings and some simple acting exercises. You need attend only one night. Lakeview Moravian is at 3565 Tulane Ave. in Madison. Please enter on the Hargrove St. side through the door marked “OFFICE.”

Why Beta Blockers? Why Left of Left Center? Why Reverse Gossip? In Left of Left Center shows, you work with a very flexible director who is keenly interested in your input. The process is efficient and rewarding and you get to play characters and situations that don’t often present themselves in the broader, stricter theatre world.

Most roles are open to anyone – all shapes, sizes, genders, and hairstyles – and we’re looking for a sizable cast.

Rehearsals will begin mid-September. For most actors, it will be a one or two night per week commitment until mid-October. If you’re interested in auditioning, contact director Ned O’Reilly at .

Please come ready to fill out a conflict calendar. Performance conflicts are negotiable and not disqualifying.
