Actors Job for "Glorious" ShowAurora, ON, CanadaID: 214554Exp: 2/8/2023
ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE ACCEPTED. Looking for non-equity actors to play characters in the show "Glorious". Please review the information provided. ABOUT THE SHOW: In 1940's New York, the performer everyone wanted to see live was Florence Foster Jenkins, an enthusiastic soprano whose pitch was far from perfect. Known as "The First Lady of the Sliding Scale," she warbled and screeched her way through the evening to an audience who mostly fell about with laughter. But this delusional and joyously happy woman paid little attention to her critics. Instead, she was surrounded by a circle of devoted friends who were almost as eccentric as she was. Based on a true story, the play spins from Florence's charity recitals and extravagant balls, through to her bizarre recording sessions and an ultimate triumph at Carnegie Hall in this hilarious and heart-warming comedy.
