Audition for Spring’s Awakening at the Mosh Pit Theatre at Performance Network


Mosh Pit Theatre at the Performance Network presents
Frank Wedekind’s Spring’s Awakening

This production will be done as a collaborative adaption with the cast, playwright, musicians, designers, and director. The final product will most likely end up as something very different than both the original Wedekind and the musical—something uniquely our own that is perhaps only inspired by the Wedekind. The cast will consist of 6 actors, 4 men and 2 women. Actors must be over 18 but should be able to portray characters in their teens. Auditions will be to cast a company of actors that will be assigned roles later in the workshop process.

Actors should expect a lengthy but not time consuming process. We will meet sporadically for several months in order to discuss the piece, workshop some scenes, perhaps do some free writing, etc. Performances will be June 20-23, 2010

Auditions will be by appointment only on Sunday, January 10, Monday, January 11, Tuesday, January 12, and Wednesday, January 13. Please email in order to set up an audition. Please prepare one dramatic monologue, contemporary or classical will do. If you sing, a little song may be nice. No accompaniment will be provided. Also expect a brief interview at the audition. Callbacks are possible at a later date.

There is no pay for the project. Non-Equity only.

Director: Keith Paul Medelis

Original Music Composed by: Helena Byrne
