A hallucinatory event in the style of Victorian peep show melodramas where child's play, the spoofing of horror shows, and a sinister calculated creakiness, calls in to question our repressed impulses in socializing children for appearances' sake. Directed by Steven Bogart, Company One Theatre is producing Shockheaded Peter in collaboration with Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys and Suffolk University.
Auditions will be held on Saturday June 21 and Sunday June 22 from 12:30pm-5:30pm at Suffolk University's Modern Theatre (525 Washington St, Boston, MA 02111).
Rehearsals will be held from November 17 - December 30 and start up again on February 1.
Shockheaded Peter will run from March 5 - April 4 at the Modern Theatre.
Company One Theatre is seeking actors for the following roles:
MC:A grandstanding character of miscues, timing, and the ability to sabotage every significant moment and the ability to improvise with substantial vocal facility. Can be male or female.
Ensemble:The ensemble needs to be made up of actors with some puppetry, improvisation, and physical theater/movement experience, as well as the ability to embody a melodramatic expressionistic physical acting style with a penchant for the dark and twisted.
Actors should prepare one classical monologue (2 minutes or under) that utilizes heightened theatricality and showcases their vocal facility. We are interested in seeing all races, genders, and body types and will be casting a diverse group of actors.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org detailing your experience with puppetry, improvisation, and/or physical theater experience along with a headshot and resume to secure an audition slot.
