A six performance Equinox festival held in March, the Festival of Dionysus is a party for myth and mortals. Six ten-minute scripts will be performed throughout the night amongst a lush, tree-laden, classical environment at a party hosted by Dionysus and the Olympic gods themselves.
Twelve ensemble members will engage all six scripts and play multiple roles throughout the night. The stories portray classic Greek theatre favorites pulled from Aeschylus, Euripides, Sophocles, and more; retold for the modern, ADD and television-soaked audience.
Performances are Fridays and Saturdays for three weeks in March 2012 at mythical arts center near Roosevelt and Wabash. Rehearsals will be Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and some Saturdays.
Please prepare one classic and one comedic monologue and be prepared for dry reading or games. Bring headshot and resume.
Feel free to forward this audition notice to anyone who might be interested, and check out the video of Oedipus from Festival of Dionysus 2010.
