Sucks with a Z
Please read the full character assessment for your choice of placement and then attempt the script with the camera directed to a full body scale. Tip: have someone film you and read out the parts that are NOT the character you are auditioning for. (Only speak the parts of the character you wish to play) Once completed, pitch your own idea for a short comedy skit (think snl). If you cannot come up with your own skit, please attempt the one at the bottom of the page in addition to your audition for the role of your choice.
Character assessment for Tara Lockley
Tara is a 20 year old up and coming social influencer. She comes up with the idea to make a channel for YouTube and runs into trouble along the way. Tara is a people pleaser and finds herself dissatisfied with the outcome of her life. She decides she wants to make a difference to people and become the influencer not the influenced. Working together with her older sister June and her best friend Stacy, Tara is confident that she can do it all.
Character assessment for June Lockley
June is a 21 year old future icon. She’s obsessed with doing things on her own time and in the most dramatic way possible. June is going to be famous one day and she makes sure everyone knows it. She’s hilariously witty and sharp to a fault, no one compares to her or so, she would have you think. June has a little sister (Tara), whom she cares for, but that’s about it. As far as she’s concerned, everyone else is a background character in the moving picture that is june lockley the movie. Lights, camera, action!
Now where did everybody go, Urrg as usual,(mutters and folds her arms) I’m the only professional around here.
Relax, I’m here, and Tara just went to get some things to set up.
Well you guys should have set it up before I got here. Time is money, you know…… I wonder if she’s getting food. I’m starving. If I wait any longer my stomach is going to burst
I have a protein bar in my bag if you want that?
(Sighs) no. Protein gives me bubbles and you do not wanna film me when My butts playing the trumpets.
Well I haven’t gone grocery shopping yet but I’m pretty sure your sister will be here soon. ……..of course, unless you know, she isn’t.
(Ponders for a second) give me the protein
Character assessment for Stacy Talorezzi
Stacy is only 18 years old but she finds herself being a workaholic. Her whole life has been about business and she’s ready to put her skills to work. Being given the opportunity to manage a YouTube channel isn’t her dream but it’s something she knows she will be good at. Together with her best friend Tara, Stacy is excited to see what this new world will open up for her and her plans for future domination.
(On the phone) What do you mean you can’t have the shipment here till Wednesday! I needed this tonight.
I’m sorry miss, but There’s nothing I can do
Nothing you can do? Your website says fast and easy shipping, no questions asked, if not, you get your money back. (Slightly elevated tone) how about you get me my money back bill.
I’m sorry ma’am right away.
Thank you. I would very much appreciate that. (Hangs up phone)
I thought you said the shipment already came?
Oh it did, but we needed that money for the next location. Don’t look at me like that. You’re the one who put the next skit at a waterpark and we’re gonna have to get the money to get in somehow.
Character assessment for Mack Kenzie
Mack is a 20 year old up and coming fashionista. It is her dream to make it to the big leagues of icons and social influencers. Being in the same plight as the cast of sucks with the z, she finds herself constantly battling the two sisters and their friend for the top spot.
(In a singsong voice) hello everyone. Welcome to my new channel, featuring yours truly. Today’s guest is none other than Mack Kenzie (imitates crowd cheering) I’m hilarious I know. Super relatable.
(There’s a knock on the door) Mack… dad says to come downstairs and eat.
Urrg I’m filming

Short skit idea
“Poems by meadow”
Tara is seated outdoors in the middle of a wildflower patch. A ring of daisies like a crown grace her head.
My name is meadow, I am a flower. I grow and I listen to the treees. I feel the wind is blowing but does it blow to me.
All around I hear acorns and squirrels scampering by. I hope I am not sitting in their nest. oh no I.
(A stranger walks by)
Miss …are you okay?
Oh yes… I am only speaking to the ants and the birds. They were so kind as to share their lunch with me so I thought I’d share with them my words.
Wh—why are you rhyming
I do not know of this rhyme that you speak. my only intention is to. vibe. with. the trees
Okay…. Is there someone I can call for you. I’m uncomfortable leaving you here alone.
On the contrary I am not alone. I never have been for even at this moment I am home
So you live outside or——
Shush…. Do you hear that? Oh now the birds are singing. They say they would like you to join us. Can you believe it?
I’m not really tryna join, umm what are you doing now?
Tara is now moving around and dancing in an odd way. She carries grass from the ground and tries to feed it to the strangers who looks confused and tries to fight her off. The stranger soon gives in and the image changes to the two laying on the grass completely dazed out. Smiling and laughing.The voiceover speaks
