Tin Ceiling Auditions for "Zombozo"

The Tin Ceiling is looking for actors, dancers, acrobats, contortionists, magicians, knife throwers, bearded women, ventriloquists, and other vaudevillian or sideshow acts for this summer's only silent, circus-zombie play, "Zombozo". A tale of love, magic, revenge, and the undead, "Zombozo" will be performed in a silent movie pantomime style, accompanied by live music and the eating of living flesh.

Actors must be non-equity and comfortable with heavy makeup, minor prosthetics, gore and fake blood. Possibly lots of that last one.

13 parts of all ages and both sexes need to be cast, including:

* a contortionist (m or f)
* a knife thrower (f)
* an evil magician (m)
* a strong man (m)
* a bearded lady (m or f)
* a dog-faced boy (m)
* rope, scarf, or pole aerial acrobat (f)
* a clown who can juggle (possibly one of his own arms) (m)

Don't worry if your particular skill isn't on the list, or if you don't have a "circus-type" skill at all. Parts may be changed or added depending on the impression you leave. Although, if you happen to have a tail, you pretty much have one of the roles.

Auditions will consist of a performance of your talent, a bit of improv, and a short "reading" from the script. Performance dates will be July 14th, 15th, 16th, 21st, 22nd, 28th, 29th, 30th.

Auditions will be held Sunday, March 19th from Noon to 4pm and Monday, March 20th from 7:30 to 10pm at the Tin Ceiling at 3159 Cherokee in South St. Louis.

If you have any questions, please call 664-1161 and ask for Robert or email us at [email protected].
