Synopsis: The sun and the moon have loved one another from afar for eons, but their responsibility to humanity keeps them apart. They are only able to meet in person during an eclipse, when they take corporeal form. However, eventually they grew weary of putting the lives of humans above their one happiness, and decide to run away together during the latest solar eclipse. What will humankind have to do to restore the balance?

(We are seeking a cast of 9 artists who are comfortable with ensemble work and can sing. Each performer will take on multiple characters throughout the piece, but will have a central primary character that they portray. Almost all of the characters can be entirely flexible in their portrayals, and we welcome artists of any gender, race, ethnicity, body type, and physical ability to audition. We are also seeking two musicians who are skilled in a variety of string and percussion instruments to help create the soundscape of the world. These musicians will deliver a few lines for a minor character.)
To submit: Send to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9/13
The initial round will be video submissions. Send us a monologue OR tell us a story. Maybe part of your favorite fairy tale. We’re looking for engaging storytellers. Can you sing? Show us. Do you play instruments? We’d love to know that too! Try to keep your submissions no longer than 3-4 minutes.
Callbacks will be held in person on September 18th from 10am-12pm.
In order to create a safe environment for our artists during the rehearsal process and while performing in close proximity onstage, we are requiring proof of full COVID vaccination for all actors hired by the time of callbacks. Please contact us with any questions at email@example.com.
