Post Roles for twenty somethings?
So my college is doing G&D and I would really like to try to get a role other than in the chorus but the male leads and supporting roles are usually played by men in their thirties. Do you think there are any leads or supporting male roles that could conceivably be played by someone in their twenties?

Does the college tend to cast students or look for older/more experienced performers for their shows? If they usually cast students, I'd think you'd have a decent shot at playing any of the leads. It depends what their theatre program and staff are willing to do, though; the rules probably wouldn't be the same for casting a college production as they would be for Broadway or a national tour.

Fifty/fifty.
