"Cow-Boy" is looking for talent to cast in a number of male roles. Auditions will be held by appointment for the following roles:
BEN (18) - Male Lead. A college Freshman, one of the ‘COW’ pledges. Driven, self-critical, a bit nerdy. Anxious to make friends and fit in at his new university, Ben looks up to the Fraternity ‘BULLS’, especially Spencer whom he idolizes. However, he is blinded by his own need for unity through brotherhood, and finds himself nearly hurting his friend, Martin, when pressured by Spencer. Note: Underwear nudity in a non-sexual context is required.
MARTIN (18) - Male Lead. A college Freshman, one of the ‘COW’ pledges. Composed, and a bit of an an outcast, Martin is a follower—the kind of kid who generally goes-with-the-flow. He wants to be where the party is at. However, that doesn’t mean he isn’t one to hold his own, and stand his ground when he is pushed to his limits. His friendship to Ben is in question when Ben turns against him. Note: Underwear and backside nudity in a non-sexual context is required.
SPENCER (22) - Male Lead. A college senior, the leader of the fraternity 'BULL' brothers. Generally friendly and seemingly confident, the pressure Spencer feels in needing to uphold his perfect, life-of-the-party image can bring out the worst in him. Blinded by his own disciplinary power, his high expectations of his pledges leads him to break their spirits and treat them like the 'COWS' the brothers refer to them as. Note: Underwear nudity in a non-sexual context is required.
THE MATADOR (22) - Male Supporting. A college senior, the matador ‘showman’ of the 'BULL' brothers, Spencer’s right hand man. He and the Toro rile up the band of brothers and their freshman pledges. Note: Underwear nudity in a non-sexual context required.
THE TORO (22) - Male Supporting. A college senior, the largest and toughest of the 'BULL' brothers. A Bouncer-type. Dressed as a raging bull, he and the Matador rile up the band of brothers and their freshman pledges. Note: Underwear nudity in a non-sexual context is required.
THE COWS (18-22) - Various Male Supporting Roles. College freshman, pledges desiring to join the frat. The 'BULL' frat brothers refer to these pledges at 'COWS,' as they must endure the hazing initiation rituals to graduate into 'BULLS.' Multiple positions are available and those casted will develop individualized personalities for their characters. Note: Underwear nudity in a non-sexual context is required
THE BULLS (18-25) - Various Male Supporting Roles. College upperclassmen, members of the frat. The fraternity brothers refer to themselves as the 'BULLS,' while deeming their pledges as 'COWS.'
