CASTING CALL for LEAD ACTRESS of "GOODNIGHT, ABSALOM!"
The FOX & BEGGAR THEATER (www.foxandbeggar.com) is taking its latest show "GOODNIGHT, ABSALOM!" on a fully-outdoor theater tour this September around the Great Lakes in a giant double-decker mobile pop-up proscenium theater! We are currently auditioning for the lead role of "Red," the charistmastic fourth-wall-breaking cabaret emcee and story narrator!
Red will be backed by a live jazz band, performing an original Spaghetti Western score in the style of Ennio Morricone.
First preference given to creative Latinx/Latina performers with an interest in dramaturgy, experimental theater, and social transformation!
"GOODNIGHT, ABSALOM!" is a surreal black comedy about American capitalism and political polarization, set inside a very strange game of chess in the Wild West. Performances will be FREE, ALL-AGES, and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC in CITY PARKS, COMMUNITY SPACES, and URBAN FARMS.
Cast members will receive a daily stipend of $20/day for all rehearsal and performance days, as well as 5% of all earned tips/donations, with a $1,000 project gurantee. Meals, transportation, and lodging provided.
