Pay: Yes


The Factory Theater is seeking actors for both main cast and understudy roles for Party at the Pantheon, written by Michael Jones and directed by Kamille Dawkins.

Party at the Pantheon: A Modern Greek Stoner Comedy
Orpheus is still big mad after his girlfriend, Eurydice, died. It wasn't his fault. Good thing his friend, Dionysus, can throw a sick party. Hopefully Sisyphus can keep these two on speaking terms long enough for the disco ball to drop. Now all they gotta do is find some food, some drink, and some music for this thing. Peep them and a cast of characters straight out of English Class, in this modern take on the ancient classics.
