Audition Instructions and details at http://zoomtheatre.com/index.php/auditions
About the Show - It’s a comedy about five women named Betty.  Betty is rich; Betty is lonely; Betty’s busy working on her truck; Betty wants to talk about love, but Betty needs to hit something. And Betty keeps using a small hand mirror to stare into parts of herself she’s never examined. Five different women named Betty collide at the intersection of anger, sex, and the “Thea-Tah.”
Character Description - Betty 5: POC, Genderqueer (masculine-of-center), great tattoos, owns a hole-in-the-wall boxing gym. Betty 5 is wildly charismatic and if you were a lady, even a straight lady, you'd get fluttery.
