PRODUCTION DATES: Rehearsal/job starts: 08/15/2017 in Montreal, Quebec
AUDITION DATES: July 24, 26th, 27th and 28th
DEADLINE TO SUBMIT: July 25th
Ethno-cultural mandate or ethno-cultural casting statement: For this production, based on the life and times of Louis Riel, an historic figure of Métis heritage, we are very eager to meet performers equally of Métis or other Indigenous heritage. Fluency in French and English are essential. Fluency in Michif or Plains Cree are an asset.
We are currently seeking 1 performer (of any gender) to complete our cast of 5 performers for a remount production of Louis Riel: A Comic-Strip Stage Play. Performances run Sept 6-10 with further dates a possibility in 2018.
As each performer plays/manipulates a multitude of characters, ease with a variety of vocal qualities and a refined sense of stage movement are assets.
And of course, a great spirit of play is essential!
RustWerk ReFinery is based in Montreal, and therefore priority will be given to performers based in the Montreal area. Equity members will be seen first at all open audition calls. Equity members cast in this production will be engaged under an Equity form of contract. CAEA members: please bring your membership card to the audition.
