The Tin Ceiling Theatre Company is proud to announce non-equity auditions for next production, "A Clash of Swords: Two comedies involving knights, pirates, cannons, and a certain mythical lizard". The production will feature two brand new, original plays by St. Louis writers Christopher Cyr and Damian S. K. Samways.

We are looking for eight males, one female, and one pirate ship of all races over the age of eighteen for the following roles:

For "Dragon's Lair" by Christopher Cyr:

Aloicious of the Flat Lands (male) - Aloicious is the meek and mild, but very enthusiastic clerk of Sir Gawain, a knight of the round table.

Roland of Slychester (male) - Roland is an innkeeper from the village of Slychester. He is also on the verge of death.

Sir Gawain (male) - Sir Gawain is a knight of the roundtable.

Sir Lancelot (male) - Sir Lancelot is also a knight of the roundtable, and a bit of a prick to boot.

For "Blackbird White" by Damian S. K. Samways:

Ana Alvarez Cabral (female) - Slightly heavy-handed Portuguese boatswain ('bosun') struggling to impose her authority on a male-dominated ship. She is descended from the great Pedro Alvarez Cabral, and she despises all Spaniards except for Queen Isabella.

Mr. Fairweather (male) - Absent minded captain of the 'Irascible Magpie' in the midst of a midlife crisis. Ex-British Navy. Likes his eggs runny, and doesn't have a wooden leg.

Mr. Pike (male) - Master shipman. Stuck in a rut between loyalty and ambition. He wears an eye patch with the purpose of keeping one eye trained for the dark below decks and one eye trained for the daylight above. He hates wearing wet boots.

The Prince of Denmark (male) - Very quiet and sullen sort of fellow.

The Irascible Magpie (pirate ship) - The fastest ship in the fleet. Made the West Indian run in just under forty days.

All roles are non-equity. Headshots and resumes welcome, but not required. Auditions will consist of cold reading from the scripts which you can download and read at the following links:



Auditions will be held Tuesday, May 15th at 7pm at The Tin Ceiling, located at 3159 Cherokee Street (corner of Cherokee and Compton in South St. Louis).

Performance dates will be Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays July 7th - 22nd. All shows start at 8pm.
