Do you love video games and fast-paced action adventure? Do you want to spend your summer running, jumping, and diving in order to defend the Nautilus?
Join us in saving the world this summer with 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea at Children’s Theatre Company!
We are currently looking for performers to collaborate with professional actors, members of CTC’s acting company, and University of Minnesota students in 20,0000 Leagues Under the Sea. This large cast will be interacting directly with audience members to give them a theatre experience that is FAR from traditional!
This production is a unique, immersive adventure that is based on the novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne. Created and conceived by Ryan Underbakke and Nick Ryan, this exciting voyage will take place in hallways, underground passageways, and other unexpected places where the actors will take audience members through an experience of being part of Nautilus. Ryan Underbakke directs.
We are looking for actors who have an intensity in performance, total commitment and quick rhythm. An ability to give a close, almost film acting quality to the script is particularly important.
Auditions will be on Tuesday, April 28th at 4pm at Children’s Theatre Company.
