Deadline:
Audition Date: JULY 12TH WITH INDIVIDUAL AUDITION IF YOU CANT MAKE THE DATE MENTIONED
Contact: EMAIL; REQUIEM@SOCAL.RR.COM

gay times requiem:

a musically embellished staged silent movie/cabaret/movement-dance theatre.
a TEXTLESS theatre piece (no text, no spoken dialog) about the gay
experience as it relates to growing up gay, coming to terms with
homosexuality, contracting and dying of aids and the relevance of god in
light of aids. an attempt is made to deal with such subject issues as death,
violence and betrayal and the struggle between the longing for a sense of
order and spiritual security in face of a senseless, random nature and the
resulting physical, emotional and spiritual deterioration. the approach
broadly addresses a collective angst and evokes universally mutual
meditation about the human condition beyond any sexual orientation.

the entire show is accompanied by requiem music as well as popular American
music from the '30 and '40.
created and directed by Eli glazer. visit: requiem.onestop.net

performances are at HIGHWAYS PERFORMANCE SPACE (for additional information
about the project, visit the theatre's website at:
highwaysperformance.org) in Santa Monica, scheduled for sep 18th through
21th, with additional shows in December during aids month and possible
extension of performances in between those dates. non union. pay: $25 per
show and a fixed $100 for rehearsals. rehearsals start at the end of July or
beginning of august.

actors who submit, should be genuinely interested in theatre and have real
passion and devotion to their craft. particular emphasis will be given to
work ethics, commitment and punctuality. as the reality is such that some
actors have "regular" day time jobs, flexibility will be considered, but

supporting male #1:

supporting: male 25-50, any height to play various roles, normal body type
or slim and lanky with well honed comedic timing and the ability for a
hidden menacing streak and a jaded butler attitude, an opportunistic
"peeping tom" as well as the ability to respond with humor to being ignored
and undesired.

a supporting male to play several different characters: angel of death, a
rejected person with aids, a straight redneck, a street bum and more.

the main emphasis is on the role of the angel of death which includes very
focused, distinguished stage entrances and exits. in spite of their smaller
size, these supporting characters, play key roles in the development and
progression of the entire piece and are absolutely vital to the thematic
structure of the piece. with the right talent and commitment, these
characters can be refined and polished into memorable jewels.



supporting male #2:

an over weight or extremely skinny nurd comedian 20-50

you will play a frustrated bathhouse patron (a solo comic scene with props
such as dildos and condoms, a scene that requires an excellent comedic sense
and timing) and later, an opportunistic, nosy "peeping tom" taking advantage
of two drugged males in a bathhouse, controlling and manipulating them into
engaging in unusual deeds. you character would require appearing in towel
only (underwear underneath towel). these two scenes tied together into one
stage sequence are a real showcase of talent and ability.




supporting female:

supporting: female 25-40, an unintending femme fatale, plump and busty.
basic dance skills.

you will appear in three different scenes playing three different
characters. an innocent femme fatale in a rendezvous with a man lover in a
set up a la over the top love birds in a silent movie. a rendezvous that
turns into a bizarre menage a trois and includes an assimilation of a sexual
act and fondling while dancing with two men. you will have your own very
dramatic musical entrance onto stage in a fancy evening gown. in another
scene you will have a stage crossing facially attached to another man.

and in another scene you will play "death" having a picnic with the angel of
death. you will be dressed in a very unique elegant black dress that will
double as a prop.


in spite of their smaller size (scene one is about 8 minutes on stage, scene
two is a stage cross, scene three is about 6 minutes on stage), these
supporting characters, play key roles in the development and progression of
the entire piece and are absolutely vital to the thematic structure of the
piece. with the right talent and commitment, these characters can be refined
and polished into memorable jewels.

there is NO nudity. all sexual activities are stylized and without nudity.
your reward will not be financial but rather in the opportunity to show case
your talent and ability.



audition date will be given soon.

thank you
