Hello and welcome all potential DANCEMACHINE! cast members. Please read only the part you are auditioning for. It's recommended to have someone else read the other role(s) off camera. Thank you and good luck.


SIDE 2 OF 2 FOR THE ROLE OF "JOE"
Joe, a former professional Ballroom dancer now owns Joe’s Leaning Tower of Pizza. Joe has a gruff, tough guy exterior - what it takes to run a restaurant - but has a "fatherly" heart of gold. Never speaks about his "dance" history but he's very proud of it. Age 50-70ish.

INT. LEANING TOWER OF PIZZA BOWL HALLWAY - CONTINUOUS
Joe walks toward a large steel door. A sign on the door reads “Joe’s Meat Locker. Off Limits or sleep with the fishes”. Perry stops at the walk‐in. Joe unlocks the padlock, looks down at Perry and pushes the door open. Perry reluctantly steps inside.


INT. JOE’S WALK‐IN ‐ CONTINUOUS
A typical walk‐in fridge, cold air pouring out the vents, various meats hang from hooks, boxes of beverages surround the room. Joe pushes a stack of boxes aside, reaches up over the air exchange and produces a metal box. He slides a key into the look and opens the lid, hands Perry a framed photo of a younger, more dapper Joe, dressed from sporty chic to calypso to tails, as a ballroom dancer.

Perry stares at the photo... awestruck.
 

PERRY
Wow... this is you, Joe?

JOE

Yep.

PERRY
You were a dancer?

JOE

So they say.


Joe pulls another photo from the box and hands it to Perry.

PERRY

You were a championship ballroom dancer.

JOE
No, never competed. Trained, showcased... never
competed, not for the big prize, anyway.

PERRY
Why not?

Joe hands another framed photo to Perry.

JOE
Lost my partner, slash fiancee,
she dumped me for a Frenchman with all the
right moves. That’s why this box is in
here to keep that witch on ice.


PERRY
I bet you were great.


JOE

Maybe... once. But then I quit, gave it up,
went into this business.
Now it’s a fight every day just to make
ends meet. Nobody wants to bowl
in a run down place like this.
Everybody wants high tech this and
high tech that, and who can
blame ‘em? Me and this place...
we’re low tech... dinosaurs.
(beat)
So it goes. Life passes you by, kid,
but the regrets don’t. They hang around.

PERRY
You wish you had competed don’t you.

JOE
I would loved to show up my ex-partner.
But hey whatta you gonna do.
Now let’s get out of here before I freeze to death.
