Turbo Turkey Productions announces auditions for the original play: The Safeguard Society, a superhero comedy, written by Adam Hegg, directed by Diana Martin and choreographed by Anna Richardson-Hegg. This show is a sequel to the shows Electric Man, Fiona Lelio (Face in the Mirror) and Panoramic (Flashes of a Hero) which all take place in our own superhero universe, but this definitely works as a stand-alone show. This production introduces us to new heroes (and villains!!) Safeguard Society was originally presented as a staged reading in 2018. Audience feedback inspired the creation of the shows Fiona Lelio and Panoramic. Now Safeguard Society has been scripted as a full-length play which will be debuted at Copious Love Theater in Ballard. Performance dates are Friday & Saturday, Nov 8/9 and Nov 15/16.
The town of Capacoma is under threat from an Evil Creed. A new team of heroes is needed to form a Safeguard Society and fight for good. We have several actors from previous productions returning to their original roles, but we are eagerly seeking actors looking to be a part of a great production team and present original material to the Seattle theater scene. This will be an action-packed show with several fight scenes. We are fortunate to have a wonderful fight choreographer who emphasizes safety and is sensitive to each actor’s stage movement abilities. Please read the character descriptions which outline the talents we are seeking. Turbo Turkey Productions strives to be diverse and inclusive in our casting. All actors regardless of color, creed, sexual orientation or gender identity are encouraged to audition.
AUDITION DATES: AUGUST 24. 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM. TPS STUDIO C. This will be a group audition with readings from the script. Please plan to attend for the duration. We will be reading actors for several scenes and really want to see how you play against each other. Please bring a hard copy of your resume and headshot and list ALL conflicts on audition form. We will provide sides if you would like to familiarize yourself with any of the characters in advance.
CALLBACKS: (if needed) WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 28. 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM. Beacon Hill.
FIRST READ-THROUGH: WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 11, 7:00 PM, TPS STUDIO D.
