Eggers Can’t Be Choosers - Or Can They? Mosaic Players Seeks 5 Actors for Upcoming Comedy 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche
Antioch, IL - Mosaic Players will be holding non-Equity auditions for our traveling production of 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche on June 13th, 2023, at the Antioch Township Center (1625 Deep Lake Road, Lake VIlla, IL 60046) from 6:00 - 9:00 pm.
Mosaic Players, with support from Violet Surprise Theatre, is proud to present 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche, a scintillating satire of women's roles in the 1950s, written by Evan Linder and Andrew Hobgood and directed by Tera Flores. The company will be performing the play at various venues throughout September and October in the Chicago suburbs and beyond.
There are five roles available, ages 20-60. All five of the characters are members of The Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein, a coterie of eggheaded widows who make the frightful but delightful discovery that the bloom is off the heteros. We welcome all female-identifying and non-binary actors 18+ to audition. Actors and crew will receive a stipend for each performance. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.
Please sign up for an audition appointment here. After signing up, Artistic Director Allison Fradkin will send the actor a Google form to complete, where headshots, résumés, and conflicts can be uploaded. Walk-ins are also welcome, but signing up for an appointment time is strongly recommended. If unavailable to attend auditions, please contact Director Tera Flores at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a virtual audition.
Performances are still being scheduled, but we have confirmed performances October 6th, October 7th, and October 20th. As a traveling theatre troupe, we will be performing the play at various venues throughout September and October in the Chicago suburbs and beyond. Rehearsals will begin in July. All actors must be willing to help with the set-up and break-down of each production. We will be performing and rehearsing in a variety of locations, so personal transportation is encouraged.
