Meet Mort the Squirrel from ‘The Realistic Joneses’

Aloha Friends of The Actors’ Group. Today I want to introduce you to Mort. Mort is a squirrel and truly beloved by everybody at TAG, and he has a walk-on role in The Realistic Joneses. I don’t want to tell you much about it because it would ruin the surprise, but Mort has been in show business for a long time, and we thought you’d like to get to know him through some of his more famous YouTube videos!  We will post a few of them leading to the big day: opening for The Realistic Joneses!

Let me start with one of Mort’s biggest hits on YouTube!

Mort is known for his comic timing, and so I am delighted to be able to give you this amazing clip of Mort trying to climb a tree. If you’re an actor, you know that playing drunk is hard! And the key is not to play drunk, but to “be” drunk metaphorically, while trying to act like you’re “sober.” I think Mort does this beautifully, and we all have something to learn from this amazing realistic acting technique.

Don’t miss Mort in his stage debut in The Realistic Joneses!

The world needs theatre and TAG needs you!

The Realistic Joneses runs February 26 – March 20th, 2016
