Auditions for 'Little Mother' for FronteraFest, December 15 and 16

Auditions on December 15 and 16 for Little Mother, to be performed at FronteraFest Long Fringe.

Little Mother Little Mother poster Radley Metzger filmis a harrowing fairytale of maternal love—a silent passion play, using shadow puppetry, physical acting, and live musical performance. In order to escape oppression, Little Mother creates a softer, shadow puppet world featuring an elephant and rooster in search of the meaning of love.
This is an original play debuting for the Frontera Long Fringe Festival. There will be four performances: Jan 24, 26, 27, and 28. Rehearsals will begin December 27 and end January 23rd. Weekends will be off until the week of the performance, but actors must be available for rehearsals on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings for three weeks. There is a strong possibility for these to be paid roles if ticket revenue exceeds production expenditures.

Little Mother
is an entirely non-verbal, physical acting performance piece with an original score performed by a live, chamber music ensemble featuring members of The Eastern Sea, The Lovely Sparrows, Driver Friendly, and Dana Falconberry. If you enjoy a collaborative, exploratory rehearsals where process, not product, is emphasized, NOT being micromanaged, and bringing ideas to the table, then this is probably an experience you would enjoy. Dancers are highly encouraged to audition, as well.

Character Breakdown (**All actors must be at least 18 years old)

  • Little Mother: a prostitute, wife, and mother. She is impossibly small. Somehow she has retained a child-like innocence. ** Only very petite actors will be considered **actress should be under 30 ** actress must be comfortable with implicit rape scene and implied sexual acts (No nudity)

  • Clients 1 & 2: The men who patronize Little Mother ** must be comfortable with implicit rape scene (looking to cast one actor who can differentiate between two roles)

A note on sexuality: If you have reservations, I understand. The subject of rape will be treated with utmost gravity. No nudity required.

For auditions actors should be prepared to perform a 2-3 minute non-verbal story (you’ll need to prepare this). I'm interested in how you move and tell a story.

Auditions will take place Saturday Dec 15th and Sunday 16th from 2-4pm in 10-minute slots. Please send an email, headshot, and resume to katiegreen444@gmail to request your time slot. If these times do not work, I am willing to find an alternative time.
