The Badlands Passion Play is accepting submissions for the roles of:
JESUS UNDERSTUDY (18-35): The rightful heir to the created world arrives on earth to find his creation does not recognize him. As he seeks to restore an ancient kingdom, he must confront the cultural power sources of his time and the age-old human condition. This is a paid, singing, position.
SIMON PETER UNDERSTUDY (late 20’s to late 40’s): The quintessential everyman who isn’t afraid to speak his mind or get his hands dirty, Simon Peter struggles to find God in his day-to-day material existence. Juggling his family, a struggling fishing business, and the existential angst of being a minority religion in an oppressed land, Simon Peter seeks answers by following the lead of a mysterious rabbi. This is a paid, singing, position.
Auditions will consist of a scene selected by the company, and a song (unaccompanied) of the performer’s choice. They will take place on Saturday, April 14 and Sunday, April 15 in Calgary, Alberta, at Evergreen Community Spaces.
Interested actors should email résumés, headshots and any questions to [email protected], with the subject line, “2018 Audition Request”. Successful Applicants will be contacted within 2 to 3 workdays after submission is received.
Rehearsals Run: May 11 – July 5 (Thursdays through Sundays)
Performances Run: July 6 – 22 (Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays)
