Now casting future replacements and understudies for the hit Chicago production of SEX TIPS FOR STRAIGHT WOMEN FROM A GAY MAN, which has recently been extended for an open-ended run due to popular demand. Set in a ‘Meet the Author’ format, straight-laced moderator Robyn is the shy and studious moderator of the event and this month’s featured author is Dan Anderson of Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man.  With the help of a hunky stage assistant named Stefan, Dan aims to turn this meet the authors event upside down with a highly theatrical, audience interactive sex tip seminar.

SEX TIPS has been sharing its interactive, upbeat brand of comedy with theater audiences all across America for nearly a decade! Becoming Off-Broadway’s Longest-Running Comedy in New York and launching a national tour before making its Las Vegas debut, this “uproariously funny” show has finally brought its “big laughs and naughty fun” to Chicago.

Interested performers should submit a video audition for one of the three roles to sextipschicagocasting@gmail.com by Monday, July 11. Audition sides are available at tinyurl.com/sextipschi. (You only need to submit one of the sides.) Your submission should include your full name in the Subject Line, the link to your video in the body of the email (no downloads, please!), and your headshot/resume attached as a single PDF file and labeled as LastName_FirstName.

Material to Prepare:

Please submit 1 of the provided sides for whichever character you're auditioning for: https://tinyurl.com/sextipschi

Time Commitment:

Rehearsals begin mid-August at the Greenhouse Theater Center
Performances Fri & Sat @ 8 PM; September 2 - November 19

Character Type/Restrictions:

[DAN] Male, early-mid 30's, Any Ethnicity. Charming, hilarious, a real performer. Dan is the author of "Sex Tips” and is not shy about sharing what he knows. Eager to break down Robyn's barriers, Dan is the supportive, funny gay best friend that you can confide in. He has developed a whole routine for his "MAN-agement courses" that include several outlandish characters.

[ROBYN] Female, late 20’s-30’s, Any Ethnicity. The tentative moderator, thrust into the spotlight. Shy and sexually repressed, Robyn prefers analysis over feelings and is initially uncomfortable discussing Dan’s tips in a public format. Smart, successful and driven, she is the type that always colors within the lines and tries to hide her unique sense of humor. However, it is clear that all she needs is a little push in the right direction to let her inner wild woman out.

[STEFAN] Male, 20s-30s, Any Ethnicity. Eastern European hunk/grad student. Well-built, chiseled physique, ruggedly handsome. Stefan serves as the stage assistant for the author events, but Dan makes him assist as the model, too. Smart and sweet, but doesn’t have the best grasp on the English language. Unwittingly seduces everyone around him. Spends some of his stage time shirtless, and he likes it.
