Promethean Theatre Ensemble

A Town Called Progress

Category: Non-Equity Audition
Pay: Stipend

Promethean Theatre Ensemble is seeking trans, non-binary, and gender nonconforming actors for the role of Slim in the world premiere of A Town Called Progress, written by Trina Kakacek and directed by Anna Bahow.

In A Town Called Progress, Ida and Vivian want to create a simple utopia, without the bother of those pesky male types. Then Slim and Weed show up. Water gets pulled from air, a rabbit talks philosophy, stories get told and retold in this magical, funny, moving play about gender, economics, and the myth of having it all.

Trans, non-binary and gender nonconforming actors for Slim (30s), a woman (AFAB) who lives life as a man. A gentle-and-tough cowboy looking for their truth.

We will also be seeing cisgender actors for the role but are not accepting resumes from cisgender actors at this time.

There is a stipend of $100.
