Calling for actors to join an ensemble for performances in serialized theater in repertory.

Mrs. Hawking and Vivat Regina by Phoebe Roberts are the first two in a series of Victorian-themed plays that have been performed in repertory over the course of 2015 into this year. This is a continuing series with a troupe of actors, so there is opportunity for reprising the role or taking on new roles at a later date in an additional run, though no commitment is required beyond this May 2016 production.

There will also a small monetary honorarium paid to selected actors upon completion of the show’s run.

We are looking for the following types for lead and supporting roles:

Women, late twenties to early forties, German accent.
Women, late twenties to early thirties, English accent.
Men, late twenties to late forties, English accent.
Nonspeaking ensemble roles of any gender and age.

Weekend of May 7th-8th
As part of the Watch City Steampunk Festival, Waltham, MA
