AUDITIONS

In the tight-knit, Puritan town of Salem, a group of girls are discovered dancing in the woods and then immediately fall ill. When no earthly cause can be identified, fear and suspicion begin to percolate in the small, isolated community, that something larger, more fearsome, and other worldly may be to blame. Buried secrets and resentments are brought to light, and attempts to root out evil lead to finger-pointing, treachery, and betrayal. When everyone is a suspect, sometimes the most dangerous threat to the community may be the community itself.

Auditions are open to people of all genders, and races, aged 16+.

Auditions are Monday, Feb 5th,and Wednesday, Feb 7th, by appointment only (email: ben@branchoutproductions.ca)

Auditionees must find and prepare a dramatic monologue. (Max. 1 minute)

All parts are open to all auditionees regardless of gender or race except the role of Tituba, who will be played by a person of colour.
As always, trans and non binary people are encouraged to audition.

Show details (dates, venues etc. TBD ASAP)

We will also be casting a small group of vocalists/musicians – details to follow.

All auditionees are encouraged to read the script in it’s entirety prior to auditioning.
