Hello! We are seeking actors for ZELDA: THE HERO OF FRINGE at this year's Minnesota Fringe Festival.
This is a large venue production that will be performed the first two weekends of August. There will be five performances with the possibility of weeknight performances. Dates/times and venue have not yet been finalized, but we will release this information as soon as they are assigned by Fringe.
This is a loose adaptation/parody of the classic video game THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: OCARINA OF TIME for the Nintendo 64, written and produced by Bryn Tanner and directed by James Ehlenz. We are looking for six actors to perform a variety of roles, including:
LINK - a boy from the forest with a great destiny. (Note: This character does not speak)
NAVI - a fairy assigned to protect Link and assist him in his quest.
ZELDA - the wise princess of Hyrule who enlists Link's help.
GANONDORF - a mysterious man from a tribe of desert bandits who plots against the kingdom of Hyrule.
IMPA - Zelda's bodyguard, a pillar of strength in the kingdom.
TINGLE - a silly man in his mid-30s who lives in the forest with Link, also serves as the narrator.
Sign-ups available HERE.
Actors will be expected to come prepared with a one-minute, contemporary comic monologue.
Auditions will be held at North Hennepin Community College in Room FA119.
NOTES ABOUT CASTING:
All actors (except those playing Link and Navi) will play multiple roles in this production.
Although nearly every character's gender is indicated by dialogue, we are certainly open to cross-gender casting, nor is there any racial preference for the characters (who are all fictional races anyway).
Rehearsals will begin in late May/early June. Exact rehearsal schedule to be determined.
Each actor will be compensated for their time with a $100 stipend.
