B.A.D. Musical Theatre changes the way that community theatre is done by prioritizing the inclusion of the diverse communities on and off the stage over everything else. Every decision we make is rooted in EDI values. Our EDI director, Cordelia Larsen, is dedicated to upholding our team to fair and equitable standards and ensuring that we ALWAYS stick to our mission and encourage actors of all genders, ethnicities, abilities, cultures, colors, neurodivergences, sexualities, ages, and sizes to audition, in order to create a production that truly represents the many communities that make up our diverse Bay Area.

This is a community theatre production. All roles are non-union volunteer positions with no pay. Due to the mature nature of this show, we can only cast actors who are 18+ by the time rehearsals begin in May.


You do not need to bring a headshot or resume. We just want to see the real you and what you can do.


Email for any questions. We hope to see you there!


Character Descriptions

All roles available,18+, no precasting. (Although some characters preen over their physiques or are described as Hardbodies, we are NOT seeking actors of any specific body type for any of these roles.)


Patrick Bateman- A rockstar, a God, a narcissist, and an egomaniac who guides us through his world of fashion, fine dining, sex, and murder…while slowly losing his grip with appearances and reality. The actor playing this character must be comfortable wearing nothing but underwear on stage in some scenes.


Paul Owen- Patrick’s nemesis. Does everything Patrick does, but infuriatingly better.


Vanden- Club Singer at The Tunnel.


Craig McDermott/ATM/Tom Cruise- One of the foursome that hype up Patrick or Paul depending what best currently suits them. Self serving, egotistical, and narcissistic.


Tim Price- One of The foursome.  Self serving, egotistical, and narcissistic.


Courtney Lawrence- Dating Luis, best friends with Evelyn, cheating with Patrick. Always on lithium. The actor playing this character must be comfortable wearing only a bra and underwear for one scene.


Jean- Patrick’s secretary. A kind, decent human being. Admires and envies everyone’s lavish lifestyle, and while seeing the wrong in it, is willing to overlook it in an attempt at connection. Obviously in love with Patrick.


Sabrina/Video Store Clerk- Sex worker and one of Patrick’s victims.


Evelyn Williams- Patrick’s girlfriend. Extremely successful, driven, and self serving. An egotistical narcissist who is severely depressed and will never show it.


Detective Donald Kimball - A detective.


Christine/Hardbody Waitress/Hardbody Trainer- Sex worker and one of Patrick’s victims.


Victoria/Hardbody Bartender- One of Patrick’s neighbors.


Sean Bateman/Security Guard/Dorsia Host- Patrick’s brother and personification of all of Patrick’s failings. The TRUE narcissist that isn’t bothered keeping up appearances.  He really is that awful.


Partrick’s Mother/Mrs. Wolfe/Svetlana- The only person Patrick really fears. Confident, intelligent, and uncompromising.


David Van Patten- One of The foursome. A self serving, egotistical narcissist.


Luis Carruthers- One of The foursome. A self serving, egotistical narcissist. Dating Courtney, but secretly in love with Patrick.
