ST LOUIS – AUDITIONS FOR PAID PERFORMERS / PRODUCTION STAGE MANAGER (Paid – Non-Union)
Performers needed for TWO new original Riverboat shows to begin on the Gateway Arch Riverboats.
Looking for comedic/improv/interactive performers for our all original comedy wedding show, and dramatic actors for the new branch of the Phantasmagoria Troupe located in Missouri to do Victorian styled Ghost Cruises.
INFORMATION ON SHOWS: The Comedy Wedding will be an interactive styled wedding built upon an existing show that ran for more than 4 years in another state. Guests are treated to dinner while the insane antics occur all around – and with them.
Phantasmagoria is a Victorian Horror Troupe dubbed “One of the most unique theater troupes in the country” by Good Day Atlanta. Rich storytelling compiled with a sense of the whimsically macabre, and a dash of Victorian circus! – www.facebook.com/PhantasmagoriaOrlando
FOR THE AUDITION Send a self or professionally taped audition to: firstname.lastname@example.org (mp3 / mp4 or video link)
Please slate your name and email at the start
Provide one comedic monologue (for the comedy wedding 1.5 – 2 min) and a one minute cutting/selection of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” or “Conqueror Worm”. (For the dramatic.
