Auditions for 3 roles in SATE’s Brontë Sister House Party

Website URL SATE (Slightly Askew Theatre Ensemble)

SATE will hold non-Equity auditions for Brontë Sister House Party for the roles of Branwell, Helen Burns, and Kate Bush on Wednesday, June 22 from 7-10pm at Centene Center for the Arts, 3547 Olive Street, 63103. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Actors interested in auditioning will find sides available on SATE’s website at www.satestl.org under the AUDITIONS tab.

The second show in SATE’s 2022 Season of Party, Brontë Sister House Party by Courtney Bailey, directed by Keating, designed by Bess Moynihan and Liz Henning, will take place August 10-27, 2022 at The Chapel. Performances are Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8:00pm.

Originally commissioned by St. Louis Shakespeare Festival as part of the Confluence Writers Project 2021 cohort, Brontë Sister House Party will receive its world-premiere production by SATE. The Brontë sisters of Victorian literary fame (Charlotte, Emily, and Anne) are trapped in a purgatorial time loop where they must throw a fabulous house party every night for eternity. Only when they reach The Point of Celebratory Reverence, the highest point of celebration that a party can achieve, will they be released. An absurd, feminist revisionist tribute to all the women artists who’ve created under pressure and still had it in them to throw a good party.

To audition on June 22nd, fill out the form on our website by June 20th to submit your resume, headshot, and proof of vaccination, and list your conflicts. Actors will be contacted by email to arrange their audition time. SATE requires that all actors cast must be vaccinated against COVID-19. All acting positions are paid $450.
