Audition: Tall Skinny Cruel Cruel Boys


Theater Ninjas is holding auditions for Tall Skinny Cruel Cruel Boys by Caroline V. McGraw, directed by Artistic Director Jeremy Paul. Tall Skinny Cruel Cruel Boys will run October 22-November 7, with rehearsals beginning in mid-September.

Brandy is a children’s entertainer with some serious demons in her personal life, not to mention the red-clawed monster that lives under her bed. She moves through life like a car crash, bringing illicit lovers, strange little girls and other broken friends along for the ride. Written by Cleveland native and Kilroy’s nominated playwright Caroline V. McGraw, Tall Skinny Cruel Cruel Boys is a bold dark comedy about self-destruction, honesty and finding what you really need.

Theater Ninjas is the Food Truck of Cleveland Theater. We’re a nomadic company who seeks out new and exciting spaces to perform. Working in non-traditional venues gives us an opportunity to reimagine how and why we tell stories, and helps us to create deep, fascinating worlds for the audience to explore. We’re always experimenting; always rethinking what theater can be: as entertainment, as art and as out-of-the-ordinary experiences.
