Auditions for Jean Anouilh's Antigone

Flat Earth Theatre seeks a diverse ensemble of actors for an inclusive and accessible production of Antigone by Jean Anouilh and directed by Lindsay Eagle, going up in March 2018. This production aims to focus on the play’s theme of power dynamics in a collaborative environment involving director, actors, and production team. Actors of color, actors with disabilities, queer actors, and actors of all body types are strongly encouraged to audition. Although certainly not required, a background in ASL, or the ability to quickly pick it up, is a plus.

Auditions will be held Monday, December 11th and Tuesday, December 12th.
