Call for South Asian Actors and Dancers for Bollywood-style Children's Tale, Scottish Rite Theatre, Austin

Posted by Rich Vázquez at the Leela - An Indian Community Theatre Facebook page on December 29, 2013:

Scottish Rite Theatre Austin TXThe Austin Scottish Rite Children's and Community Theater opens its 10th year anniversary season with the original tale of "Little Red Chunari," to begin rehearsals in January and production in February 2014.

Little Red Chunari’s willpower is put to the test when she journeys through the jungle to visit her grandparents in this Indian adaptation of the classic Riding Hood tale. Kids and grown-ups alike will enjoy Folk and Bollywood-style dance, puppetry, and stand-up comedy, with live music performed by Austin’s own Sacred Cowgirls.

We are currently seeking to cast South Asian actors in the following roles:

Little Red Chunari (young-ish woman who can learn basic folk dance and sing one children's song)
Mom/Grandparent (woman; ideally this actor would double as grandfather/grandmother)
Elephant Walla (man or woman, must have good comedic timing)

We are also seeking dancers, which can be an existing group, or individuals willing to work together.
