September 19 & 20, 7-9pm. With callbacks as needed on September 21.
All auditions will be readings from the script.
Note: Due to doubling of roles and the concept of the production you may be asked to audition for a gender that is not your own, unless you request otherwise.
An intimacy coordinator and a fight choreographer will be a part of the production team. This will be an actor run production. Meaning scene changes will be completed by actors as a part of the production. Accommodations will be made as needed.
Dialect skills (British RP or other such regional dialects) are a plus, but not a must.
Please note that, currently, all roles at Theatre in the Round are volunteer; however, all actors will be provided a new professional headshot, with rights to use digitally or print. We understand and respect that not everyone is able to committ to a show for no payment.
Except as noted, roles are open to actors of all identities – racial, ethnic, sexual, gender – and no roles assume the presence or absence of disability.
All roles listed will be doubled or tripled with the exception of Anthony Cade.
