Catch the Keys Productions is seeking performer-collaborators for the paid workshop development of a new immersive musical, VAULT. Co-created by Megan Dart, Lindsey Walker & Beth Dart. Book by Megan Dart; music by Lindsey Walker; dramaturged & directed by Beth Dart.
ABOUT THE PROJECT:
From world wars to monumental discoveries to personal travesties and everything that defines the human experience between, VAULT will be a deeply personal, expressively intimate, and emotionally impactful new work devised by three award-winning Edmonton, Alberta artistic creators. This new interdisciplinary immersive musical theatre production will explore known and unknown women in our collective history – the women who survived cataclysmic events that fundamentally shaped and continue to shape our experience as women, as survivors, as community.
Teetering on the edge of WWIII, a small group of hopefuls gather in an underground bunker in anticipation of a post-apocalyptic reality. Pulling on the histories of survivors from generations past, we hear the harrowing tales of women who persevered and helped shape our communities as we know them now, and who are preparing for a tomorrow we may not recognize.
Catch the Keys Productions is looking to fill five (5) female character roles. Ability to play an instrument is an asset. PLEASE NOTE: VAULT is an immersive musical, as such performers will be expected to be in very close proximity to audience both in the development and presentation of the work. Performers should have some comfort with audience interaction and improvising in character. The workshop is scheduled from May 20-27 (exact times TBD).
Friday, April 26 from 12pm – 7pm
A representative of Catch the Keys will contact individuals selected for auditions.
Those auditioning will be asked to present one contemporary monologue and one song. Songs do not need to be specific to musical theatre – choose something that best shows off your skills (popular, traditional, folk, rock etc.)! Video submissions welcome.
Please email your resume and headshot to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm MST Monday, April 22.
