MY BOYFRIEND’S GIRLFRIEND is seeking three performers and a stage manager!
The application deadline has been extended to May 30, 2016!
We are especially seeking an actor/singer for the role of the transgender character, Tricia AKA Trenton. Ideally this role would be played by a transmasculine or non-binary person, so please pass this along to any trans* actors who you know, but anyone who is comfortable presenting as female at the beginning of the show and male at the end is welcome to apply.
Payment for the actors and stage manager will be a split of revenue. Auditions are on Tuesday, May 31 and Wednesday, June 1. Please apply with a CV and headshot. Rehearsals will be full time starting in mid-July (long rehearsal sessions, perhaps 8 hours, 5 days a week, depending what works for everyone). The Fringe Festival has already started organizing the performance schedule so please only only apply if you’re not already in another Fringe show. Thanks!
Composer: Jamie Price
Director: Sarah Rose
This show is a musical comedy which will be presented in a main venue at the Edmonton Fringe Festival this year. It’s about three likeable nerds who get into a polyamorous relationship, one of whom is trans and changes gender presentation over the course of the story. It’s a funny and light-hearted story with a happy ending, although there is some drama. Video games, friendship, and love!
This is the first Fringe show by Jamie Price/Must Be Tuesday. You can hear some of the songs that will be featured in the show at mustbetuesday.com, for example Cover Me I’m Going In, The Coming Out Song, and This is Where I Wanna Be.
Cast of Characters:
- DECKER – A young man, likeable and geeky. Tenor-ish vocal range.
- SAGE – A young woman, Decker’s best friend, feminine and outgoing. Alto or soprano vocal range.
- TRICIA, AKA TRENTON – A young transgender person, Decker’s partner, socially awkward and boyish. Presents as female at the beginning of the show and male at the end. Ideally played by a trans or non-binary person, but a smallish, fairly high-pitched cis man would work too. Tenor or alto.
Deadline to apply as a performer or stage manager: May 30, 2016.
