TRANSFORMANCE: A Transgender Love Story with Songs
running multiple dates through March 19 – 30 / 2018 at the Pumphouse Theatre and Café Koi in Calgary

CHARACTERS:

    To appear as well established trans male
  • ANGELICA (assigned Axel at birth) Edmundson, a 19-year-old student
    To appear as transitioning trans female

Despite being a “ONE ACT MUSICAL” these are very demanding roles which require skilled singing and an ability to effectively deliver emotionally charged adult themed monologues.

Brief description
Mack inadvertently rescues Angelica at a LGBTQ+ rally. This brief encounter evolves into a tumultuous relationship. Both share a life long struggle with gender identity and are in the process of transitioning. Their drug addled love story is raw and unsettling. Built with interwoven monologues and songs, TRANSFORMANCE challenges our universal desire to grow and be loved, to be understood and belong.

OPEN AUDITIONS will be held at 10:00 – 5 :00 pm on Saturday Jan 20 and Sunday Jan 21 / 2018
-expect to read excerpts from script and be prepared to sing
-please prepare a short monologue (less than 2 minutes) on a significant childhood experience
