We at the Messy Kween Collective have been scandalized by all the recent anecdotes of the Best Actor® being passed over due to considerations of gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, height, weight, eye colour, hot beverage preference, dislike of certain pop divas, etc.
We cannot stand for this. So for our upcoming Site Specific project at the Toronto Fringe Festival we want to make sure we are finding the Best Actor® for each member of our ensemble. To ensure we find the Best Actor® we are strongly encouraging applications from anyone and everyone (regardless of age, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, etc.) as a possible member.
We are casting for the 4 following ensemble members:
A – They are wise, kind, and funny. They are decisive and stubborn. Ideally they have a musical background (or the ability to carry a tune).
B – They are tough, playful, and boisterous. They are slow to trust, but deeply loyal.
C – They are shy, sharp, and have a great sense of humor. They have a good heart, but have a habit of being sneaky.
D – They are cutting and aloof, and manipulative. They see themselves as an outsider, they feel strongly and love deeply.
If you think you’re the Best Actor® for any of the members of our ensemble, we want to hear from you. Please send us:
1) A Short Email – Identify the ensemble member for which you’d like to be considered, and give a brief (couple of sentences) explanation of why you’re the best actor for this part.
2) A Photo - A headshot if you wish, but we’re also open to something less professional and more candid.
Send Applications to – firstname.lastname@example.org
Please Make the Subject – [Your Name] is the Best Actor
Deadline for Applications - January 9th, 2016 at 11:59pm
Auditions will be held in late January.
The Toronto Fringe runs June 29th - July 10th, 2016
