Commedia Beauregard

A Klingon Christmas Carol

Category: Non-Equity Audition
Pay: Check about pay

Commedia Beauregard is looking to cast 16 individuals (11-12 male, 4-5 female) to join the Chicago cast of "A Klingon Christmas Carol", the only play to have ever been performed in tlhIngan Hol (the Klingon language from the Star Trek movies and TV shows).

For the show, actors will be expected to learn to pronounce Klingon and perform in that language. However, no prior knowledge of the language is expected. All actors will play multiple roles. While this show has been done in Chicago twice before, there is a new director this year, and that means all parts are available.

This is a translation of the Dickens classic holiday tale. Scrooge has no courage, nor honor. The ghosts are coming to help him fix that. Because Klingons are what they are, expect stage combat, singing, and a lot of guttural sounds. The show has garnered national and international press attention.

Auditions will take place in 75-minute time slots at 1 p.m., 3 p.m. or 4:30 p.m. on Saturday (6/16), and 6:00 p.m or 7:30 p.m. on Sunday (6/17)

Time Commitment:
Rehearsals will begin Mid-October. Four to five rehearsals per week. Evenings. Show Opens December 8th. Closes December 30th. 16 performances. No rehearsal or show on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, or Christmas Day.

Material To Prepare:
Please dress for movement. Audition will consist of readings from the script (in English), a quick fight sequence, and a brief language-lesson.
