Pencil Kit Productions is looking to cast a strong female actress aged 35-50 in the role of Demeter in their upcoming fringe show, Persephone.
The show is a story of resilience, sexual awakening, and coming of age. It examines how a young woman— and everyone around her— makes sense of a traumatic experience. The production is physical and collectively created. We are looking for actresses who can move, create and act (bonus if you can sing too!) All ethnicities welcome.
We are accepting Audition Tapes. You are asked to prepare the following:
1. Choose a moment from the story of Persephone (don’t worry about getting the right version of the story— we welcome interpretation) and share it with us from the perspective of Demeter in two minutes or less. This can be text or movement based.
2. A dramatic monologue (contemporary or classic is fine)
Include a resume with your audition. Don’t worry about video quality. Send to PersephoneFringe@gmail.com. Due date is April 30. If you are accepted, you will join rehearsals starting immediately on Sundays and Tuesdays. Artists will be compensated with a profit share at the end of the run.
