StageQ, Inc. will be holding open auditions for "Laced" by Samantha Mueller and directed by Chris Diorio.  "Laced" will be presented on the Evjue Stage at The Bartell Theatre, running April 28th through May 13th, 2023.

Dates and Times

Auditions will be held Monday, February 20th and Tuesday, February 21st  at the Bartell Theatre on 113 E Mifflin St. starting at 7pm. For information on video auditions please email the producer at


Please RSVP for which day you want to attend here: 



MINNOW - she/her/hers, 20-30s, half Latina, cis-female or genderqueer; tattooed & pierced, probably wearing combat boots. Bar manager, the responsible one. Speaks Spanish (only in one scene)


CAT -  they/them/theirs, 20-30s, any race/ethnicity, non-binary; witchy femme drag extraordinaire--may or may not have a glitter beard--and bartender. A bit of a cynic. 


AUDRA - she/her/hers, 20s, any race/ethnicity, cis-female; bisexual bar-back learning the ropes of bartending. The youngest, a bit innocent, with some emotional baggage.


Casting Notes: People of all  gender expressions, identities, sexualities, races, ethnicities, and experience levels are welcome and encouraged to try out. StageQ will look to cast the show as authentically as possible based on the pool of people who audition. 

Please note: these roles are non-equity, volunteer.



Actors will be asked to cold read selections from the script, either paired with other auditioners or as a monologue. There will be no need to prepare ahead of time.


Resumes and headshots are not required but will be accepted. The production team may take a photo of you once you arrive to help us during the selection process. Photos will be deleted once casting is complete. 


Health and  Safety

Current StageQ policy is that all production staff, crew, and cast meet the CDC’s definition of “up-to-date”on your COVID-19 vaccines--meaning you have completed your primary series and received the most recent booster dose recommended for you by the CDC--by the time rehearsals begin. Those wishing to audition do not have to provide proof of vaccination status, but if cast, proof must be provided to the Production Manager before the first rehearsal. Those who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons will be allowed to participate but are asked to contact the show’s producer ahead of time. Masks will be optional at auditions, though actors should be prepared to wear them during the early rehearsal process of the show and up through the beginning of tech week if necessary.


About Laced: 

It’s the morning after the 2016 election. A gay bar in Florida has been vandalized. Three twenty-something bartenders gather to attempt to piece together the events of the night before. Fiery and poetic, Laced ferociously celebrates the spaces in which we find our truest selves and the spectrum of ways the LGBTQ community comes together in the face of hate.


Rehearsal Dates and Location

Rehearsals will start March 26th and will typically run Sunday through Thursday from 6:30 to 9pm.  Final rehearsal schedule to be determined based on the availability of the actors that are cast. Rehearsals will be held at First Congregational Church at 1609 University Ave.
