We are now casting for 2 female co-leads for a COMEDY in our One Axe Spring Industry Showcase.
Auditions will take place on Saturday, FEBRUARY 28, 11am–1pm. Location: West LA. (Plenty of street parking.)
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, including your headshot in jpg, your preferred time slot, the role you’re auditioning for, and full contact information. We will send you the full script, the location address, and the sides you should prepare.
Our Spring Showcase takes place on the evening of March 28, so please do not audition if you cannot commit to that date. Rehearsals are flexible and will be determined by the director. As always, this will not be a time-consuming affair, but you will be working with professional female directors and writers to develop what is hopefully an ongoing relationship.
If this role doesn’t speak to you, we will have exponential casting opportunities in the future for our other showcases, but we would greatly appreciate if you would circulate to any interested parties who would be a good fit.
Written by Melanie Kirschbaum & Alexandra Decas

Logline: Triggered by a conversation about our national treasure, Elizabeth Smart, two best friends nitpick each other’s life decisions, but ultimately realize that neither has it quite together.
Alexandra and Melanie are best friends and roommates, both in their 20s, and have been through a lot together, yet haven’t learned all that much from their experiences.
Alexandra – Slightly more together, slightly, which gives her a douchey air of judgmental superiority. Alex is gluten-free, not due to a gluten intolerance, but because she thinks it makes her interesting. Spoiler alert: it does not.
Melanie – Not particularly informed and therefore misuses Elizabeth Smart’s heroic life to justify her poor choices. Melanie’s claim to fame is continuing to exist after eating a yogurt that was left in the fridge for six years. Quote: “It was delicious.”
