THIS PRODUCTION HAS BEEN CAST. CHECK BACK SOON FOR MORE AUDITIONS.
We are so incredibly excited to announce our summer show of Lightning Bolt's 2018/2019 season!! We can't wait to return to the stage and we'd love for you to audition to be part of it! This Non-Equity Audition will take place on May 15th from 6:30-9:30 PM (with a possible callback May 19th from 1-4 PM). Actors will be compensated for performances.
CLAUDE (Rock Baritone/Tenor. Late Teens. All Ethnicities): The most beautiful beast in the forest. Smart, attractive male, with a playful side; a lover of life and the picture of a young man next door of the 60's. Strong actor. Berger's best friend, recently drafted whose only valuable possession, other than his freedom, is his hair. A charismatic leader that women adore, boys emulate, and men will follow into the breach. A man of conscience who struggles with the conflict of what his heart tells him is right and what the authorities around him lead him to believe.
GEORGE BERGER (Rock Baritone/Tenor. Late Teens. All Ethnicities): A social activist recently banished from high school. An unrestrained animal. He knows what is right and sticks to it no matter the consequence. The leader of the tribe. High energy, athletic, wild. Strong presence and, though he may be a young man, he is looked up to.
SHEILA (Rock Alto/Belter. Late Teens. All Ethnicities): A second semester student and passionate protester from NYU who lives with Berger and Claude, aspires to spread love. Loves Berger. The most intelligent of the tribe. Wants to change society through peaceful protest. Not necessarily perfect on the outside, but must have a strong voice and presence.
JEANIE (Alto. Late Teens. All Ethnicities): A follower, not a leader. Incredibly sweet, understands Claude better than anyone. Wise, passionate, creative woman, who is pregnant with the tribe's baby. She has taken every drug, and takes care of the tribe. Strong actress to play comedic and dramatic scenes.
CRISSY (Mezzo. Late Teens. All Ethnicities): A flower child mourning a lost love - the youngest female of the tribe. Sings "Frank Mills".
DIONNE (Alto/Mezzo Belt. Late Teens. African American): Sassy and lots of fun. Great with comedy and ad-lib vocals.
HUD (Soul/Rock Baritone/Tenor. Late Teens. African American): Speaks his mind and hopes you can keep up with him. High energy, spiritual performer with a strong voice and presence. A true tone setter that is a natural on stage in any situation.
WOOF (Rock Baritone/Tenor. Late Teens. All Ethnicities): May not want to admit it but he is gay. A young animal. High energy, versatile performer. Must be a natural with comedy. Looks up to Berger and Mick Jagger... in many ways.
TOURIST COUPLE (All Ethnicities): Two male performers with strong comedic timing. One must be willing to appear as a believable woman, while the other is her miserable husband. Will double as tribe.
TRIBE (Various Vocal Ranges. All Ethnicities): This is not a "chorus", as the entire cast is a true ensemble. Tribe members sing many featured songs including "Aquarius", "Black Boys", "White Boys", "Walking In Space", "Electric Blues", etc, and pay many roles in the show including the PRINCIPAL, MOTHER, FATHER, HISTORICAL FIGURES, and more. Energetic, creative performers with heart and passion.
Due to the subject matter of the show, we will not be accepting auditions from anyone who will not be 18 by the time the show opens.
