20% Theatre Company is thrilled to produce the world premiere of THE NAKED I: INSIDES OUT, taking place at Intermedia Arts, February 14-23, 2014.
THE NAKED I: INSIDES OUT will be the third in a series of NAKED I plays produced by 20% Theatre that share experiences of queer and trans* (transgender/gender non-conforming) individuals. There are an infinite number of stories to be told, and as a company focused on social change, human rights, and the voice of queer and trans* artists, we are determined to tell as many of these stories as we can - thus creating/producing a new NAKED I show every few years.
(Previous plays include THE NAKED I: MONOLOGUES FROM BEYOND THE BINARY by Tobias K. Davis, produced in Mpls in 2009, and THE NAKED I: WIDE OPEN created by 20% Theatre and produced in February and June 2012, followed by a national tour.)
The script for THE NAKED I: INSIDES OUT will include 25 (chosen out of 119 submissions!) short monologues, movement/performance pieces, spoken word poems, scenes, etc.
Tuesday 12/3 from 6-9pm
Sunday 12/8 from 10am-2pm
at Intermedia Arts - 2822 Lyndale Avenue S, Minneapolis
ALL PERFORMERS cast in the show must be available for tech/dress rehearsals the evenings of February 10-12, and performances February 13-23 (almost every night, plus Sundays at 2pm) at Intermedia Arts in Minneapolis. Please do not audition if you won't be available February 10-23.
ALL PERFORMERS will work with a local director, and individual rehearsals will be scheduled based on performer availability. Most pieces will only need to rehearse 4-6 times before performance, so there is not a HUGE committment until showtime.
ALL PERFORMERS cast in the show will be paid $150 minimum guaranteed stipend (possibly more with grant funding)
TO SCHEDULE AN AUDITION: Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the date and time that you would like to come. Please be preapred to stay up to an hour - we will be as fast as we can but there will be lots of people auditioning! No preparation necessary - but bring a photo of yourself if you can (any photo!). At the audition, you will be asked to fill out an audition form with general contact info and conflicts (i.e. work/school schedule), and you will be able to choose a short piece from the play to read for the directors.
THE NAKED I: INSIDES OUT has roles for *EVERYBODY* - including transgender, gender non-conforming, gender queer, and cisgender* people of any ethnicity, any ability, any experience in theatre (or none).
ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL: email email@example.com
Details on performance dates, times, and how to get tickets will be shared on this page in mid-December.
RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN by Gina Gionfriddo
20% Theatre Company is looking to cast 5 actors and hire some production staff for the regional premiere of RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN by Gina Gionfriddo in spring 2014, directed by Anya Kremenetsky.
Is the grass really greener on the other side? Obie Award winning playwright Gina Gionfriddo’s searing new comedy RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN is a wickedly perceptive and surprisingly relevant take on cross-generational feminism, exploring the evolving attitudes of women towards career, marriage and family – and the consequence of choice. After grad school, Catherine pursued a career as a feminist academic who soon became a literary rockstar and favorite of the pundit circuit, while her college friend Gwen decided to build a home with her husband and children. Catherine has returned home to care for her ailing mother Alice and reconnects with Gwen who is married to her old college flame Don. Both are dabbling in regret and attempt to explore the road not taken, with hilarious and surprising results. Gionfriddo mixes love, emotion, envy, and academics in a play the New York Daily News called “a smart, funny, and lighting-paced look at feminism.”
For this production we are looking to cast:
Catherine and Gwen, both early 40's
Don, early 40's
Auditions will take place Saturday, December 7 from 2-5pm, and Monday, December 9 from 6-9pm at the Sabes Jewish Community Center (www.sabesjcc.org/directions.php), with possible callbacks on Sunday, December 15 if needed.
Auditions will occur in 30-minute slots, and will include cold readings from the script. To sign up for an audition, email firstname.lastname@example.org with preferred audition date and time. Please bring headshot and resume with you.
Minimum guaranteed $200 stipend for all actors (more pending grant funding).
Rehearsals will begin in early March, with performances April 26-May 11, 2014 at the Minneapolis Theatre Garage.
We are also seeking designers (sound, lights, props) and an ASM for the show – stipend paid. If interested in any of these positions please email email@example.com.
