Dacha Theatre is auditioning for our upcoming 2019-2020 season. Auditioners from generals will be considered for the following shows in the season.

GHOST PARTY REMASTERED - A remount of Dacha’s original immersive production
You live, you die, you move on – that's how it's supposed to go. But when an unlucky subset of the dead have been reliving the same ill-fated party over and over for decades, it's up to you to try to find a way to change their fates.
Rehearsal period: September 23 - October 11th, 2019
Show Run: October 12 - November 3, 2019

SORRY I MISSED YOU - A staged reading of a new script by Ryan Long
Sorry I Missed You is a web of interconnected narratives told through 1980s-style answering
machine messages, featuring love, mistaken identity, many missed connections, and a cat.
Rehearsal Period: December 3 - December 12, 2019
Show Run: December 13 - December 15, 2019

THE MOORS - by Jen Silverman
Two sisters and a dog live out their lives on the bleak English moors, dreaming of love and power. The arrival of a hapless governess and a moor-hen set all three on a strange and dangerous path. The Moors is a dark comedy about love, desperation, and visibility.
Rehearsal Period: January 7 - February 20, 2020
Show Run: February 22nd - March 7th, 2020

DUST - by Danielle Mohlman
Wrestling with the reality that everyone he's ever known was just killed in a shooting at his school, Boy spends his last minutes spinning a story that looks not unlike J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan. These young women, these mermaids, compete to be heard as their story unfolds. They are the swim team – powerful and sometimes monstrous.
Part dance, part theatre, Dust plays like a music score that’s been infiltrated by poetry, giving voice to the unspeakable.
Rehearsal Period: March 17th - May 7th, 2020
Show Run: May 8th - May 24th, 2020

(F)UNFAIR - an original devised production in collaboration with Boston’s Playable Theatre Project
Set in a surreal dysfunctional carnival, (F)unfair is an interactive experience that explores income inequality and systemic injustice through individual stories. Participants explore a carnival: playing games, riding rides, meeting characters, and engaging with a voting system that changes both the world and the stories of its inhabitants.
Rehearsal Period: June 1st - July 23rd, 2020
Show Run: July 23rd - August 9t, 2020

PLEASE NOTE:
Ghost Party Remastered, Sorry I Missed You, and The Moors will be casting in the Fall

For our season, all roles are open to people of different races, gender identifications, ages, abilities, and experience levels unless otherwise noted. We are casting all roles.

GHOST PARTY REMASTERED:
Casting 5-9 people to join the returning ensemble.

Ideal ensemble members have improvisation experience, and are comfortable engaging directly with audience members.
Available roles include:

The Grip -- any gender, any age.
The Head Chef -- any gender, any age.
The College Drop-Out -- any gender, early 20s.


SORRY I MISSED YOU by Ryan Long
This play deals prominantly with queer stories. Trans and non-binary actors are encouraged to audition for all roles.

Michael – Teens-early 20s. Anxious, apologetic, and tends to overthink things. Currently avoiding examining his own sexuality.
Tony – Teens-early 20s. Michael’s best friend, still in love with his ex-girlfriend. Overdramatic and takes things very personally.
Christine – Teens-early 20s. Caring and optimistic. Very secure in her sexuality, less so in her relationships.
Ann – 40s. A dedicated but overwhelmed mother of two. Makes up for a lack of control in her own life by micromanaging others’.
Gary – 40s. An overbearing but well-meaning father. Unlucky in love, but he’s trying his best.
Sabrina – Young. Precocious, inquisitive and opinionated. Thinks she’s more of an adult than she is.


THE MOORS by Jen Silverman:
Seeking a diverse cast. Actors of color are encouraged to audition for all parts.
Agatha — Elder spinster sister. Spidery. Dangerous. Powerful.

Huldey — Younger spinster sister. She has a diary. She wants to be famous.

Emilie — The governess. A romantic with a sweet face.

Marjory — The scullery maid. Down-trodden. Strategic.

The Mastiff — The dog. A sad philosopher-king.

A Moor-Hen — A small chicken. Practical and very present-tense.


DUST by Danielle Mohlman:
We are seeking a diverse ensemble. Actors, movers, and dancers of color are strongly encouraged to audition.
All characters are in high school. We are seeking adult actors for all named roles.
We are seeking female, non-binary, or gender-non-conforming actors for all roles except Boy.

BOY (18, Male) – believes himself to be a reliable narrator (note: given the racial history of gun violence, we will only be considering white actors for the role of “Boy”)
WENDY (18) – a leader, clever and powerful, believes she can be whatever she wants
LILY (17) – the kind of friend that brings you donuts just because
ISABEL (17) – maybe sometimes calls teachers by their first names, but they don’t mind
THE MERMAIDS – they are the swim team – powerful and sometimes monstrous. they are poetry in motion, and they sit next to you in algebra. a huge chorus made up of individual characters. (we will be casting a 10-15 person ensemble to be the Mermaids, with both speaking and non-speaking roles)

Please note that this show is physically demanding, and will require most actors to be on stage for the duration of the show. Actors/movers of all abilities are encouraged to apply.
