Open Call Auditions for Daughters of Lot Staged Reading

 
Seeking Female Dancers Who Act for Daughters of Lot Staged Reading

Author: Alexis Roblan
Director: Rachel Kerry
Producer: Brain Melt Consortium

The reading will be the evening of 10/30/10, with
three to four rehearsals scheduled from 10/03/10 through 10/24/10,

SYNOPSIS: Daughters of Lot is a modern-day burlesque act -- with a twist. Tonight's entertainment is a sexy and silly retelling of an ancient story, until the burlesque performers do a trick that requires a little more than flexibility, summoning the ancient characters of their story into reality. Enter into the mix: Daughter 1 and Daughter 2, Lot's daughters from the Biblical tale of Sodom and Gomorrah. Led by their charismatic ringleader, Atlanta, the burlesque Chorus sets out to teach the Daughters how to be modern, sexually-empowered women, for the benefit of the audience.

Roles available:

ATLANTA -- The headliner. Hides any vulnerability behind flawless performance. A trapeze "artist."

DAUGHTER 1 -- The older sister. Cautious and observant.

DAUGHTER 2 -- The younger sister. Excitable and naive.

ONE -- Chorus member. Plays a mean man. (Also plays Lot.)

TWO -- Chorus member. Aspires to be the headliner, and will do anything to win her place.

FOUR -- Chorus member. A chameleon. (In the figurative sense.)

Open auditions will be held from 7:30PM-10PM on Sunday, September 26 at 353 Studios, located at 353 West 48th Street, Floor 2.

Sides will be available at the auditions, please bring a picture and resume.  If you're interested in scheduling a specific time for your audition or reading the script, email brainmeltconsortium@gmail.com.
