Audition for The Worm Queen

From Will McGhee ’17:

Looking to continue or begin your acting careers on the Wesleyan stage? Well look no further. The Worm Queen is the play for you!

What is Worm Queen? Well it’s an original dramedy that takes place in a world where earthworms have risen up and taken over the world. A dysfunctional family has survived the apocalypse on a far away island. But the peace is fragile; with the eldest daughter prophesied to save the world and agents of the worms on their doorstep, nothing is as it seems.

Auditions are TUESDAY 9/2/14 from 8-10:30PM and WEDNESDAY 9/3/14 from 5-9PM in the EAST ROOM (The room on the right in the long rectangular building at the back of the CFA). No prep necessary! But if you wish to prepare a minute-long monologue of your choice, please do. Candy will be provided by the benevolent Worm Collective.

Questions? Contact Director/Writer Will McGhee at wmcghee(at)wesleyan(dot)edu or Stage Manager Maia Nelles-Sager at mnellessager(at)wesleyan(dot)edu

Date: Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014 and Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014
Time: 8-10:30PM, and 5-9PM
Place: East Room, Theater Studios
Cost: Free (Worms have no concept of currency)

Do you ever feel like all the hot ones are robots? Do you wish that your lipstick doubled as a laser gun? Don’t you hate it when your clones won’t let you sit shotgun in the hovercraft?

Welcome to SONG FOR A FUTURE GENERATION, a comedy that takes place in the future at a dance party on a space shuttle orbiting around an exploding star. The 13- person cast will play time travelers, shapeshifters, aliens, and psychics. They will also get to make puns, karate chop each other and rock out to a whole lot of ’80s jams.

Auditions will take place Wednesday 9/3 and Thursday 9/4 from 4:30 to 6:30. Sides will be provided — no preparation or experience necessary!

Date: Wednesday, September 3rd – Thursday, September 4th.
Time: 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM
