AUDITION INFORMATION FROM THE DIRECTOR
This production is a fast-paced, highly physical, ensemble-based production. Soccer experience, or confidence in learning physical skills, is an asset for those auditioning for the team characters. Auditions will include a group physical component as well as short individual scene auditions. The list of characters are below, please indicate if there are any characters you would specifically like to be considered for. Please also indicate if there are any scheduling requirements during the audition dates that you would like us to consider when booking your time.
The Maggie Tree and The Citadel Theatre are committed to inclusive casting and strongly encourage submissions from performers who self-identify as members from under-represented communities. If there are accessibility obstacles (language, disability, work schedule, or any other consideration) preventing you from applying to audition, please let us know and we will work with you to overcome them.

Each scene is a warm-up for a game. The warm-up is a series of exactly timed stretches
and exercises: squats, jumping jacks, quads, hamstrings, butterfly, etc. The team executes
it wordlessly, in perfect unison and with military precision.
Over the course of the play, #46 learns the warm-up.
