A small troupe of actors takes on a global collection of unforgettable characters in this imaginative and theatrical re-imagining of the classic adventure. Stampeding elephants! Raging typhoons! Runaway trains! Unabashed slapstick and snarky asides! Join fearless adventurer Phileas Fogg and his faithful manservant as they race to travel the globe faster than ever before (a daunting task, even without being tracked by the detective who thinks Fogg is a robber on the run). Danger, romance, and comic surprises abound in this whirlwind of a show. H.G. Wells meets Monty Python!
Characters (4 men, 1 woman):
- Phileas Fogg (M-30s-50s): The quintessential English gentleman – controlled, cool, and always dignified. Excellent British accent required.
- Actor #2 (Male-20s-50s): Passepartout (Fogg’s unflappable French servant) + 3 British characters
- Actor #3 (Female-20s-30s): 3 female characters, 2 male characters (Indian and British accents)
- Actor #4 (Male-20s-60s): 10 different characters (British, Indian, and American accents)
- Actor #5 (M-20s-60s): 17 characters (British, Indian, Chinese, and American accents)
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script and some improvisation. Seeking quick-change character actors able to adopt outrageously broad characters in the blink of an eye and switch of a hat.
Please bring a current head shot and resume.
