ROLES:

OFFICER DIXON/POLICE OFFICER: (25-35) He is THE LAW. Over-zealous with his ridiculous citations, like “being too hot,” “distracting an officer,” and “being too stereotypical.” Actor should be quick-witted with STRONG improv comedy skills.

OFFICER HARMON/POLICE OFFICER: (25-35) He is THE LAW. Over-zealous with his ridiculous citations, like a guy “dating out of his league,” a man who “matches the description” of an eyewitness, and conducts unwarranted mid-day sobriety tests. Actor should be quick-witted with STRONG improv comedy skills.

SANDRA/BEAUTIFUL WOMAN: (18-25) Stunningly beautiful—people notice her from a mile away. Out for a nice day at the park by the beach. She is approached by a police officer who tells her to tone down the hotness, distracting park goers. She does not want to take up his offer for coffee or friend him on Facebook. Actor should have STRONG improv skills.

MARY/WOMAN: (18-35) Out for a nice day at the park by the beach. Just wants directions, when a police officer writes her a citation for distracting an officer. She wants to know what he did wrong, and he writes her a citation for questioning an officer. She doesn’t get mad. She gets quiet. Actor should have STRONG improv skills.

LEXI/GIRL: (18-22) An extremely attractive young woman who loves her boyfriend for his smarts, and gets upset when an approaching officer cites him for “dating way out of his league.” Out for a nice day at the park by the beach. She’s not happy with the “settling” citation the officer gives her. Actor should have STRONG improv skills.

TIM/GUY: (18-24) An everyday guy, isn’t concerned about his looks, but has an extremely attractive girlfriend. Out for a nice day at the park by the beach. He’s not happy when an officer cites him for “dating way out of his league.” Actor should have STRONG improv skills.

SALLY/OLD LADY: (65-75) Out for a nice day in the park by the beach, is surprised when an officer suggests a shlubby young man date her. Actor should have STRONG improv skills.

GARY/BIG GUY: (25-40) A lot to love, wears his standard mustard-stained wifebeater and sweat pants for a nice day at the park by the beach. Is surprised to get a citation from a cop for “being too stereotypical.” Actor should have STRONG improv skills.

CYRUS/HIPSTER: (21-29) Has a gigantic self-conscious beard and wears a sweater from Goodwill. Out for a nice day at the park by the beach. Is surprised to get a citation from a cop for “being too stereotypical.” Actor should have STRONG improv skills.

RYAN/HOLLYWOOD DOUCHEBAG: (30-40) Wears an expensive suit, with a Bluetooth in his ear. Is walking through the park by the beach on his way to meet a prospective client for lunch. Not his turf, but really wants to sign this guy. Is surprised to get a citation from a cop for “being too stereotypical.” Actor should have STRONG improv skills.

GEORGE/MAN: (25-35) Out for a nice day at the park by the beach. A police officer cites him for “matching the description” of an eyewitness who saw someone littering. He argues that he’s not the guy. Actor should have STRONG improv skills.

STEVEN/ANOTHER GUY: (25-35) Looks pretty similar to GEORGE/MAN. Out for a nice day at the park by the beach. Actor should have STRONG improv skills.

CAMERON/RANDOM PERSON: (male or female, 21-30) Minds own business at the park by the beach, when an officer stops him/her to undergo a midday sobriety test, that increases in ridiculousness. Actor should have STRONG improv skills.
