It’s not even officially summer yet, but here’s the audition notice for the first show of our 2015/16 season – auditions will be held at the end of June:
by Jean Anouilh adapted by Lewis Galantière
Directed by Janet Kish; Produced by Dahlia Katz
PERFORMANCES: September 18 – October 3, 2015.
Seeking dynamic, generous and innovative actors to explore and perform Anouilh’s rich text through a collective journey of movement and experimentation. The cast will be artistic collaborators throughout. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in either classical or physical theatre or both.
o Non-gender; age 25 – 45. Androgynous, sensual, confident and very present.
o Female; age 40+. Warm-hearted, precocious and somewhat off the wall.
o Female; age 18 -25. A dark horse, an outsider, an “other”. Physically frail, slight and angular, she may possibly (but not necessarily) have a street look (i.e. piercings, tattoos, dreads, shaved head, etc.) Extraordinary presence, energy and eloquence.
o Female; age 18 -25. The polar opposite of her sister. Feminine and compliant.
o Male, age 24 -30. He is nobly handsome, strong and fit.
o Male; age 45-60. Strong and confident in his own authority, intelligence and logic. Has a military aura with underlying humanity.
o Any Gender, ages 20 – 35. Military men/women – there is physical and mental conformity about the trio. Must be physically strong for lifts.
o Any Gender; age 16–20. Young and ethereal but somewhat ominous character.
o Any Gender, Age 12-16. Creon’s boyish attendant.
o Female; age 45 -60. She knits throughout but never speaks. Must have strong singing voice as she will be part of our soundscape. In lieu of a monologue, actors auditioning for this role should present 1 minute of an a cappella song.
