FALL 2021 PRODUCTION INFORMATION
RED by Somalia Seaton
Casting an ensemble of 12 actors for a live production scheduled to perform October 14-16, 20-23, 2021
Mourning the loss of her bestie, Jay, Dee cannot imagine life without her best friend. She withdraws into her imagination and memory, seeking comfort from the harsh realities of the outside.
RED is an unflinching and bold exploration of the internal lives of young women. It is part of Platform, an initiative from Tonic Theater in England, whose mission is to achieve greater gender balance in its workforces and repertoire. Platform commissions large-cast plays with predominately or all female casts, written specifically for performance by young actors.
Persons of all gender identities are encouraged to audition.
Directed by Laura Riddle firstname.lastname@example.org
Fun Home, a musical by Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron, based on the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel
Casting 10 actors for a live production scheduled for November 18-20, 2021
When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires.
