A NON-PROFIT 501(C)(3) HORROR THEATRE COMPANY IN DENVER FOR THE INFECTED
Pandemic Collective is ecstatic to announce auditions for our next play, Yet A(nother) Night of Grand Guignol.
Yet A(nother) Night of Grand Guignol is our third Grand-Guignol style piece. Grand-Guignol is a style of over-the-top French horror theatre made popular in the late 1800's that features high melodramatic flair, shockingly comedic plot twists and turns, and live music. This season's exploration of Grand Guignol offers two stories on popular urban legends and much more of what our audiences crave in our BRAND-NEW theatre!
We are seeking three actors for our productions of Black-Eyed and Tall Thin Man, the Grand Guignol pieces featured in Yet A(nother) Night of Grand Guignol, directed by Samantha Saunders. Black-Eyed is a short play inspired by the myth of black-eyed children: supposed paranormal creatures that resemble children between the ages of 6 and 16, who are reportedly encountered on doorsteps of residential homes. Tall Thin Man is based on the urban legend of Slender Man.
Pandemic Collective is a horror theatre company dedicated to infecting the masses through horror theatre. By engaging artists and audiences across all mediums, we seek to collaborate as a cultural force to rouse outrage and fear in hope of social change. Pandemic Collective utilizes artists outside of the conventional performing arts medium (i.e. graphic designers, photographers, sculptors, pick your poison,) combining our diverse artistic influences to create unique horror theatre pieces that are highly infectious and compelling.
We are seeking actors for the following roles:
The Child - 6 to 16, an apparition with pale skin and dark eyes
HIM - A tall and thin man reminiscent of Slender Man, he is unnatural and ghost-like
Dex - a teenage boy, kind and charming, with a flair for the dramatic
Auditions will be held on Sunday May the 20th from noon to 2 PM at Theatre 29, located at 5138 W 29th Avenue in Denver. Actors will be emailed sides from the script to read from at the audition. To sign up for an audition slot, please visit the link below.
All actors below the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
Rehearsals will begin in late May, and performances will be on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8 PM from June the 1st to July the 7th at Theatre 29 (our brand-new space!) in Denver. The rehearsal process for this actor will be very light, and they will not be called for every rehearsal, so scheduling is flexible. To be considered, please sign up for an audition slot at the link above, or email a headshot and resume to email@example.com. This role will be paid a small stipend, and we are seeking to collaborate with driven artists that are passionate about theatre and developing new work as part of a brave collective.
