AUDITION FOR GOREFEST 2014
10AM - 1PM on Saturday, July 26
ImprovBoston is excited to announce auditions for GoreFest, its annual original Halloween comedy splatter-musical. Auditions will be held from 10am-1pm on Saturday, July 26 at ImprovBoston (40 Prospect St., Central Square, Cambridge, MA). Please contact producer Christine Toohey (email@example.com) with questions and to request an audition time.
This year’s show, The Gruesome Tale of Penny Dreadful, will be performed Thursday, October 23 through Saturday, November 1, with dark nights on October 27-28 and an “open preview” on Wednesday, October 22. Rehearsals will begin the week of September 1, with schedule depending on cast availability.
Penny Dreadful is your standard “Dr. Frankenstein-meets-a-former-hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold-meets-a-horrifying-murder-mystery” Victorian-era musical comedy. The show is dripping with tasteless and juvenile humor, not to mention copious amounts of fake blood, gore and other bodily fluids, all of which ends up on the actors (and the audience). Plus, it's a musical.
The Gruesome Tale of Penny Dreadful features book and lyrics by Don Schuerman and original music by Steve Gilbane. The show is directed by Matt Chapuran with music direction by Steve Sarro.
Please prepare 30 seconds of a song to be performed a cappella. During the audition, you will also be asked to read short scenes from the script. Please bring a theatrical resume and headshot to the audition. Singing ability is a must for all roles. Dance experience is appreciated but not required.
