Annex Theatre will be hosting auditions for their upcoming mainstage production of Faeriestruck, written by Kyleigh Archer and directed by Sophia Franzella on Saturday, July 27th (12:30p-4:30p) and Sunday, July 28th (11a-2p). Callbacks will be held on the evening of Monday, July 29th (6p-9p).

This creative team is looking for a diverse group of 7 actors to play multiple roles that are both masked and puppeted. No puppet experience necessary. Please note that the character of Girseach will be played by one person and will not be using puppets or masks. Specific character tracks will be determined upon casting for the ensemble.

Show Summary:
A young runaway sells their family out to a changeling in exchange for an adventure in Faerieland. Featuring puppetry designed by Kyleigh Archer with found and recycled materials; it is a touching simple tale with bigger environmental ramifications. Faeriestruck is bizarre spectacle for adults and children alike.

Faerieland is waiting, will you succumb to fantasy or rise a hero?

SCHEDULE (TBD):

WORKSHOP: TBD - one day in August before rehearsals begin (puppetry workshop)
REHEARSALS: mid August-mid October (4-5 days a week/mostly weekday evenings and maybe one weekend daytime)

TECH: October 12th-24th

PERFORMANCES: October 25-Nov 23 (Thursday-Saturday evenings at 7:30p); two Monday evening performances on Nov. 4th and 11th at 7:30p

 

Other details:
Annex Theatre is actively and intentionally committed to diverse and inclusive casting and volunteer hiring for all productions. Inclusive casting is understood as being open to casting roles with artists in roles where ethnicity, gender, age, or ability is not prescribed and who may not reflect the original description of a role in terms of age, ability, ethno-cultural identity, gender, or sexual identity.
