The Creation Coffin is currently casting one actress for our Toronto Fringe Production of Hexen by Caleigh Crow.
Shows run July 5th to 16th with rehearsals beginning in May.
Role: The Messenger - a capitalist dictator in a pin-up model’s body - she’s intelligent, conniving, sexy, villainous, high status and charismatic - she always knows something you don’t know - looking for a very tactical actress, about 18-30 in appearance, open to all ethnicities - strong vocals are a must - some movement skills are an asset
*this actress will be double cast/and will be performing half of the shows, up to eleven shows*
Hexen is a new Canadian play, that is being staged in a site-specific location for the Fringe. The play is about four witches and the men they’ve been sent to punish for crimes against the Earth and each other. The people who work closest to nature begin to notice strange occurrences around them - in the animals, rivers, and hills. What they don’t realize is these signs have been sent as a warning from the witches on behalf of the nature that surrounds them. However, the enemy of the witches has his ways of encouraging the men to continue down their current path. Will they listen to their own humanity or reject it for the promise of something better?
This is a paid opportunity via a profit-share model.
If selected to audition:
- you will be sent sides from the script (which will not need to be memorized) to prepare
- you will also have to prepare an acca pella interpretation of any of the following songs:
Man’s World (James Brown), Smoke on the Water (Deep Purple), Bad Moon Rising (CCR), Barracuda (Heart), Roxanne (The Police), Come As You Are (Nirvana), Radioactive (Imagine Dragons), Super Rich Kids (Frank Ocean), 6 Inch (Beyonce)
-there will also be a movement call element, but there is nothing to prepare for this
Auditions will occur between March 5th and 11th. We will contact successful applicants with times and location.
Please send headshots and resume, and anything else you feel is relevant to firstname.lastname@example.org
