In 1925, while chasing a dream of fame and fortune by turning a Kentucky cave into a tourist attraction, Floyd Collins himself became the attraction when he got trapped 200 feet underground. Alone but for sporadic contact with the outside world, Floyd fought for his sanity and ultimately his life as the rescue effort above exploded into the first genuine media circus. Reporters and gawkers …from across the country descended on the property, fueling the hysteria and manipulating the nation into holding its collective breath. This haunting musical – one of the most acclaimed in recent years – tells the transcendent tale of a true American dreamer.
An additional night of auditions have been scheduled for Tue, May 21 at 7pm at the Monmouth Theatre.
Parts available for 11 men and 2 women. Please prepare a musical selection that best shows your vocal range, as well as a monologue – both not to exceed 2 minutes.
We are also welcoming applications and resumes for designers. Looking to talk with scenic, lighting and sound designers interested in working on this project.
Performances planned for August 16-25, 2013 at the Monmouth Theatre in Newport, KY.
Presented by Falcon Theatre/4th Wall Productions.
Directed by Mark Femia
Music Direction by Steve Goers
