Announcing auditions for

THE REVOLUTIONISTS

A Comedy. A Quartet. A Revolutionary Dream Fugue. A True Story.

Performs November 5 – 21, 2021
(Thursdays 7:30pm curtain, Fridays and Saturdays 8pm curtain, Sundays 2pm curtain)

By: LAUREN GUNDERSON

Directed by Tessa Corrie

ABOUT THE SHOW:
Four badass women try not to lose their heads in this irreverent, rebellious comedy set during the French Revolution. Amidst the Reign of Terror, four renegades—an assassin, a spy, a writer, and, of course, Marie Antoinette—hang out, plot to murder Marat, find friendship, and try to beat back extremist insanity in Paris. With sharp knives and sharper wit, the quartet takes us on an exploration of art, terrorism, and how we actually go about changing the world.

A NOTE ABOUT CASTING:
Seeking 4 female-identifying actors of all ages and ethnicities. This play is based on the lives of real women, real transcripts, and real executions…but please remember it’s a comedy.

MEN ON BOATS

Performs January 14th-30th, 2022
(Thursdays 7:30pm curtain, Fridays and Saturdays 8pm curtain, Sundays 2pm curtain)

By: JACLYN BACKHAUS

Directed by Lee Ann Payne

ABOUT THE SHOW:
Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. MEN ON BOATS, by Jaclyn Backhaus, is the true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition, when a one-armed captain and a crew of insane yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River. Written to be performed by a multicultural cast of female-identifying actors and no real boats, MEN ON BOATS is a comedic, kinetic, wild ride of discovery, pioneering, and bravery.

A NOTE ABOUT CASTING:
Seeking an ensemble of adult actors of all ages and ethnicities – must be female-identifying, trans-identifying, genderfluid, and/or non-gender-conforming. Exceptions noted below. The age range for the actors is fluid and will depend upon the composition of the ensemble. To identify specific relative ages, I will include the term younger/older.

Note: This play requires physical stamina and the ability to lift things. It is an ensemble piece where most actors will remain on stage during the entire play. There is a significant amount of choreographed movement. This is a show that can appeal to actors interested in expanding their vocabulary beyond musicals, or stretching some skills beyond traditional plays. In other words, all actors are encouraged to audition!

REHEARSALS AND NOTICES:
Rehearsals will begin in early November and will be scheduled based on everyone’s availability and thus may pause in December due to holiday travel. Some rehearsals may take place via Zoom, depending upon the nature of the work.

In person rehearsals and performances will be at the Lucie Stern Theater, 1305 Middlefield Rd, Palo Alto. Performances will be live with an in person audience.
