Description:

The company is holding auditions for "Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde" Musical. The CD looking for actors, please see the details below . ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE CONSIDERED. About the project: Based on the novella Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, this stage adaptation has one actor portraying Dr. Henry Jekyll and four actors (including one female-presenting actor) playing Edward Hyde. These actors take turns narrating the story and also play various members of the ensemble. Four actors playing Mr. Hyde takes the story beyond the realm of “horror” and makes this a psychological thriller, exploring the many layers of Mr. Hyde’s personality, the destructive powers of science, and the classic struggle of Good and Evil. “An elegant re-telling of the classic tale…[Hatcher] knows how to spring just enough surprises to keep us guessing.” San Jose Mercury News “A smart, tense and suspenseful new take on Stevenson’s look at the evil that lurks in the hearts of men…Hatcher has fashioned a play that seems truer to Stevenson but hipper, sexier and more intense…” San Fransisco Chronicle Rate: A stipend of $400 will be offered to all actors in the production. Additional info: A short dramatic monologue is requested for the general audition (Oct. 16, 17). Callbacks will be readings from the script (sides from the script will be made available prior to the auditions) If you are interested please apply.
