Auditions at The Elite
The Elite Theatre Company Nontraditional Casting Policy
Unless otherwise contractually required by our licensing agreement, The Elite Theatre Company holds a nontraditional casting policy. Meaning we expect our directors to cast the best candidate for a role without considering the actor’s ethnicity, skin color, body shape, sex and/or gender when casting for a role.
The Elite Theatre Company is looking for talent to augment its [almost] all-female cast for ANDRONICUS, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragedy. Director Bill Walthall is looking for at least EIGHT actresses to join its ensemble.
Plus, we’re also looking for the following:
- One or two ensemble players – playing assorted Roman and Goth characters
- Two “death dancer/stage crew” members – morph-suited stage crew that will not only do set changes but also provide specialized motion/hand-held lighting; these characters will also be the abstract representation of death onstage (so they’ll be busy).
IN-PERSON auditions will take place on Saturday, October 9 at NOON, and Sunday, October 10 at 6pm. Rehearsals will then begin on Monday, October 11. The run of the show–on the South Stage–will be from December 3 – 19, with performances on Friday and Saturday evenings as well as Sunday afternoons (NOTE: there will be a Thursday night performance on December 16, and NO PERFORMANCE on Saturday December 11).
