Audtions for 'Western' - a farce in the Wild West

We are holding open auditions for an alleged Theatre Company's upcoming play Western (written by Fletcher Wolfe, directed by Danylo Loutchko).

About the play: In a quiet town in the Wild West, trouble is brewing. A lowly blacksmith wants to be a hero. A bandit wants to take over the government. A damsel searches for true love. A doctor creates a potion that turns people into werewolves. A priest believes electricity is the devil’s work. And a bartender just wants to find his suitcase full of old bread. 

Building on the tropes and stereotypes of the Western genre and taking them to the absolute extreme, Western is a joyfully convoluted and wonderfully absurd play full of heros, villains, lore, love triangles, gunfights, werewolves, and one super evil cactus.

When & Where: We are holding auditions December 8 & 9, 2019 at the Phoenix Theater in Minneapolis. We will be holding group auditions.

Sign up here.

Audition Info:  Auditions will be group- and workshop-based, which means we will play some games and devise some work in groups.
We would also like you to prepare a one-minute solo performance where you re-enact the entire plot arc of a TV show, playing all the characters and hitting all of the series' major plot points.
Headshot and resume are optional (but strongly encouraged).
Improv and physical comedy experience is preferred, but not required.

Callbacks will take place at the Phoenix Theater on Friday, December 13th at 6:30pm.

an alleged Theatre Company encourages performers of all ages, genders, ethnicities, and abilites to audition.

Show info: Rehearsals for Western will begin late January 2020 and will take place Monday-Thursday nights and Saturday mid-day.

The play performs the first week in March, 2020.

Stipend: $100 + comp tickets.
