CLOWN BIBLE, Auditions

I’ve never posted an audition notice on the blog. Let’s see how it goes, yes?

As some of you know, Ten Red Hen‘s next production is CLOWN BIBLE. A musical, highly physical, exploration of Bible stories, CLOWN BIBLE will trace the running gags of masculinity, power and corruption that run throughout the Holiest of Texts.

The show will be brought to you by the same team that put on {The 99-Cent} Miss Saigon last spring: Maya Gurantz (that’s me!) will be directing, Dave Malloy writing music and musical directing, Dell’Arte grad Jane Chen will be playing God as well as leading the Clown Training.

We’re looking for a few more dynamic, physically creative performers to round it out. Clown training/experience isn’t necessary, but certainly welcome. Small stipend. Performances are March 22-24, 29-30, April 1, 5-7, 12-14 (4-weekend run with possible two-weekend extension). We begin rehearsals in Berkeley in mid- to late- January, and perform both in Berkeley and San Francisco.

We’re holding an Audition Workshop. We’ll get together, walk funny, sing, and play.

Please prepare a song you love singing, and come dressed to move. If you play an instrument or have any special clowning skills (juggle knives? balloon animals?), please bring that, too. RSVP for a space by emailing
