Chicago, IL Casting Calls: Auditions for original show with Fifth House Ensemble

Fifth House Ensemble (www.fifth-house.com), is seeking actors for the first show of its interdisciplinary concert series: “The Weaver’s Tales: of the fearless boy and the loveless girl” to be performed on November 16th at the newly restored Mayne Stage and November 17th at Preston Bradley Hall of the Chicago Cultural Center.

Working in collaboration with directors Rebekah Scallet and Lindsey Marks, the original theatrical musical event will be comprised of physical theatre performance intermixed with live music, weaving together stories from classic fairy tales to create bold new presentations of timeless concepts. We are also working with fashion designers and video artists to add further dimension to each concert.

We are offering a stipend of $250 with the potential of additional paid touring dates scheduled throughout the year.

We are looking for versatile male performers of any ethnicity or age with experience in (or who are comfortable exploring) physical theatre, or other movement-based theatrical expression. Each actor will work with the other actors, directors & musicians in developing their characters and physically telling the tales.

To schedule an audition, send a headshot/resume and performance clips (if available) by September 25th and be sure to type “AUDITIONS” in the subject line. Auditions will take place from 6:30pm and 9:00pm on September 26th. Please prepare a short 2-3 minute solo piece in the form of physical theatre or highly theatrical monologue. We may ask you to stay additional time to work with other actors, so please let us know of any time conflicts you have for that evening.

Rehearsals begin October 10, 2010 and will take place three days a week, specific times TBD. There is a preview on November 14, and performances are November 16 and 17.
