Actors wanted for the play "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time". See the breakdown below. ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE CONSIDERED. About the project: At exactly 7 minutes after midnight, 15-year-old Christopher, a young man with an extraordinary brain but impaired social skills, is found standing next to his neighbor’s dead dog. Despite having never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered the dog. His detective work takes him on a thrilling journey that turns his world upside down. The Curious Incident… explores questions that surround those who are “neurodivergent” in a profoundly moving play about adolescence, fractured families, mathematics, colors, and lights. Additional info: No preparation is necessary – be prepared to read from the script and play some theater games. PLEASE NOTE – this show will require a lot of physical work from the actors – they need to be able to lift and carry heavy objects and do limited movement choreography.
