Audition for Becky’s New Car

Open Auditions for Becky’s New Car

Saturday, March 18 and Sunday, March 19 at SVCT’s warehouse in Morgan Hill.


Calling for actors to audition for Becky’s New Car, which will run May 26 – June 18 at SVCT’s Limelight theater in Gilroy, CA.  


Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management, and a happy but middling marriage—with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night Walter Flood, a socially inept and grief-stricken millionaire, stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Walter mistakes Becky for a fellow widow, and Becky makes the choice not to correct him. This moment of choice propels Becky on a journey that sends her spiraling towards an inevitable crossroads in her life. Becky’s New Car is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones; it is a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken, and the audience gets the chance to ride shotgun in an interactive way that most plays would not dare.
