Every Brilliant Thing – Online Auditions
Grandstreet Theatre Seeks Additional Actor for Montana State-Wide Tour
Every Brilliant Thing
by Duncan MacMillan with Jonny Donahoe
The tour begins rehearsals May 27th and performs June 5th – August 2nd.
Two actors will be cast to perform the solo show, and serve as crew and run the show for each other on alternate nights of the tour. We are planning 50 performances across Montana and the actors will be responsible for performance, setup, take down and driving to each location. Vehicle, lodging, per-diem and $300 per week salary provided. Additional responsibilities include talkback leadership, logistical planning and community outreach. The performance is part of a suicide prevention program developed by Grandstreet Theatre and made possible by a grant from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Montana. Performers should be comfortable with the topic of suicide and will undergo “Signs Of Suicide” and “Mental Health First Aid” training as part of the rehearsal process.
We are seeking a male actor to play a character aged 30 – 55 with strong comic chops and an ability to form a quick rapport with a wide range of audiences throughout rural Montana. The character makes quick shifts from broad stand up comedy to intensely vulnerable moments. Sense of humor required, sense of compassion a must. Diverse actors, particularly Native American (Assiniboine, Blackfoot, Cheyenne, Crow, Gros Ventre, Salish/Kootenai and Sioux tribes) are encouraged. Non Equity or AEA Special Contract.
Auditions will be accepted via video submission through January 15th. Please record two of the four attached monologues (if you select monologue #2 please have a friend read the role of Sam off camera) on video along with a brief introduction (2 minutes or less) and why you are drawn to the material and the tour.
