Submission deadline: Friday, January 25th at 5p.m.
Greenlight Theatre Productions is currently seeking actors/singers for a new play, Samantha (A Concept Album Brought To Stage), written by Duncan Rowe with original music by Josh Doerksen and Ayaz V.
The play is a combination of storytelling, live music and dance. Throughout the play we see the transformation of Charles (aka Taz) a young rapper living in Toronto. With putting all his energy into his music career, Taz is interrupted by the lingering memories of his abusive and absent father.
Taz: (M, 22 - 28, singing required)
Taz is a struggling rapper with a past he’s trying to move on from. Using whatever means necessary, including music and drugs, Taz tries to escape from his current state of mind. Actor playing Taz must have some form of vocal and movement training.
Doug: (M, 50 - 70, singing required, ability to play guitar an asset)
Doug is a washed up rockstar who is filled with regret. His easily obtained fame in the 70’s led him down a destructive path that he is now trying to fix.
Lauren: (F, 25 - 30)
Lauren is the co-founder and marketing head of a start up company. She is very strong-willed and quickly falls for Taz and his musical abilities. Soon after they relationship begins, Lauren realizes that she has to question Taz’s intentions and commitment to their relationship.
Young Doug: (M, 20 - 25, singing required, ability to play guitar an asset)
Doug is arrogant, self aware and manipulative. An angel on the guitar, but deceptive outside of his music. He is everything Taz is fearful of becoming.
Samantha: (F, 17 - 22)
Samantha is innocent and only thinks with her heart. Always thinking of others but never herself. A wonderful mother to Taz.
Please submit your headshot, resume and a letter of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include any singing/rapping and movement experience in your letter.

Performance dates are April 9th- 14th, 2019.
