THEATREX is accepting virtual audition submissions for FROST/NIXON by Peter Morgan.
This will be an intimate, minimalist, performance - staged in one of the historic courtrooms at Landmark Center in Downtown St. Paul, directed by Joe Hendren. Audience will be limited to 50 per show.
We are expecting an ensemble cast of 8-10 actors. Most actors, except for those playing Richard Nixon and David Frost will play multiple roles.
Plus various smaller named and unnamed roles
We encourage all performers, age 18+ to audition – especially BIMPOC and LGBTQIA+ performers. We are committed to a socially conscious and equitable casting process and strive to ensure that our productions increasingly reflect that.
As evidenced by the above list, this is a male-heavy cast of characters, however roles are available for individuals of any/all genders and we are working with the publisher in the hope of providing more of such opportunities. Unless you have a strong familiarity with the script and are only interested in the roles of Richard Nixon and David Frost, we encourage you to submit your audition for any available roles.
To audition virtually, please follow the following steps:
STEP 1) Download the audition form found HERE.
STEP 2) Record yourself performing a 60 second dramatic or seriocomic monologue that best showcases your ability. Upload the video to a site like YouTube, Vimeo, Google Drive, or a personal website.
STEP 3) E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “FROST/NIXON AUDITION” with a digital copy of your HEADSHOT (or snapshot), ACTING RESUME, COMPLETED AUDITION FORM, and AUDITION VIDEO LINK(s).
Please submit your audition by Sun. Feb. 25 - 9pm.
Rehearsals will begin in March, with performances taking place April 12-21. Currently 4 performances are scheduled. We hope that ticket sales will warrant adding performances within that window.
Actors will be paid a stipend of $250, with additional pay if performances are added.
