“The Maids”

Written by Jean Genet

Project Lead: Ava Egertson

August 16-17 // The Crane Theatre

Two sisters, maids to a wealthy society woman, act out fantasies of class, love and revenge while the lady of the house is out on a romantic rendezvous. As their games intensify, the incipient violence escalates as they await Madame's return.


Seeking the following roles (Any gender, Ages 18-26):

SOLANGE: Claire's older sister. Madame's maid. Senses her captivity. Prone to fantasy. A warped reflection of her sister.

CLAIRE: Solange's younger sister. Madame's maid. Finer than her livery. Prone to fantasy. A warped reflection of her sister.

MADAME: Entitled, easily powerful. The Goddess. The Victim. The Boss. The Turd. Awfully magnanimous when she feels like it. Carried away by a scandal with her lover.


“Gruesome Playground Injuries”

Written by Rijav Joseph

Project Lead: Thomas

August 16-17 // The Crane Theatre

Over the course of 30 years, the lives of Kayleen and Doug intersect at the most bizarre intervals, leading the two childhood friends to compare scars and the physical calamities that keep drawing them together.


Seeking the following roles (Ages 18-24):

DOUG (M): Earnest and a bit goofy. Has a daredevil childlike streak in him that is always leaving him with some kind of injury. A gallant noble quality about him when it comes to Kayleen. A knight willing to suffer anything on her behalf.

KAYLEEN (F): A damaged child that grows up to be an equally damaged woman. The eternal damsel in distress. Can't seem to give or receive affection from the only person she truly loves, Doug.



Please prepare a one-minute contemporary dramatic monologue and be prepared to read from the script. Callbacks will be held on an as-needed basis and by appointment only.

WHEN: Saturday, April 13th

WHERE: The Phoenix Theatre, Blue Studio

(2605 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55408)

**At this time, we are only seeking performers ages 18-26**
