Live Auditions Begin Next Weekend!

We have 7 audition slots left for next Saturday, October 10, and just a couple of openings available on Saturday, October 19. Visit to find out how to schedule your audition or how to submit a digital audition, if you’re so inclined. You’ll also find audition monologues on that page, including three new ones that I just uploaded — more on that below. If you’d like to try out for a part but are not available on the 12th or the 19th, use the Contact Us link at to email us about the possibility of setting up a separate audition just for you.

Now, about those new audition monologues — here are the characters and a little bit about them:

Dickie Butz — Self-effacing, nerdy traveling salesman with an immense vocabulary and a sunny disposition who periodically stops by the store to sell Virgil useless/dysfunctional merchandise. Everybody in town but Harmon agrees that Dickie Butz is “the nicest guy ever.” He’s also inexplicably popular with the ladies, the main reason for Harmon’s undying hatred.

Doral Bernstein — Doral seems to work at every company Virgil ever calls on the phone. Doral is a local guy or gal, a go-getter, smart with a smart mouth. This role is not written for a specific gender, and despite the last name, Doral is decidedly NOT a New Yorker/Annie-Potts-in-Ghostbusters type.

Luke Yoder — A man of few words, Luke is a taciturn Amish farmer who drops by the Muckey Landing Market, Diner and Hardware Emporium to sell cheese and other Amish goods to Virgil. He knows the value of a buck, has no sense of humor and rarely smiles, except when he manages to fool Virgil into overpaying for his merchandise.

Coming down to the wire, and I’m excited! Remember, folks, we’re casting a podcast here, so no memorizing lines, no blocking, minimal rehearsals, and recording dates that we can set up at your convenience. Plus maybe you’ll get famous when we release the wonders of Muckey Landing onto the interwebs! I got a whole town full of people I need to cast here, so you got no damn excuse for not getting your butt to a live audition or submitting an audition online.

That is all.
