Frankenstein - Fringe Festival Audition

The Windmill Company is proud to present Frankenstein, adapted and directed by Grace Barnstead for the Minnesota Fringe Festival.


Show Info:

Adapted from Mary Shelley’s esteemed novel, Frankenstein will be a devised adaptation that explores the use of “othering” in modern American society. Actors will collaborate with the director to produce a work that facilitates conversation about the way in which we create the very “monsters” we fear.




May 24th 6:30-9:00pm


May 25th 6:30-9:00pm


For auditions, please come prepared with a headshot, resume, your availability through August 13th, and a list of potential conflicts. Auditions will be in 30 minute long slots. Auditions will consist of improv activities so come prepared to move. We are looking for performers who are comfortable with their bodies and movement and who are willing to experiment with style and form. This will be a collaborative process and will require an ensemble of 6-8 actors who are comfortable with experimentation and are willing to take risks.


To sign up for an audition time, please email Grace Barnstead at [email protected] with your preferred time and date.


Auditions and rehearsals will be held at Hamline University in Drew Hall, room 67. Drew Hall is located at 1523 Hewitt Avenue St. Paul, MN 55104.
