2 actors needed for March performance

I am directing a re-enactment of the Last Supper of Jesus for MARCH 28TH, 7pm. 

PLEASE EMAIL if you are interested in auditioning for this paid acting assignment. 

I am looking to cast the roles of Judas and Jesus.  Judas would be the "under-study" for Jesus.

Both positions would be paid. (amount tbd)   Both would need to be in late twenties to mid-30's (or look as if), and be available for 4-5 rehearsals.

The location of the rehearsals will be at Bethany Presbyterian Church in NW Portland, just 1 mile from Rockcreek PCC. 

A few rehearsals will be on Sunday afternoon, the others tba, according to actors' availability. 

Costume fitting and DRESS REHEARSAL will be Sunday, March 24, at 11:30. 

PERFORMANCE to be on THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 7PM.   Arrive at 5:30 for costume, make-up, and run-through. 

The re-enactment will last 30 minutes or so.  Disciples and Jesus will be sitting at a head table eating a Passover-style meal, while the audience is seated at tables, also eating a Passover-style meal, as they watch the performance unfold.

The person playing Jesus will have some of the "lines" taped to the table to aid in delivery.  Judas has very little to say, but will under-study the role of Jesus.

Thank you!  Merica Fooks

Opening- 8/8/2013

Pay varies based on role and union status.

Seeking five creative, open, collaborative actors. An ensemble working together to help create the world of this play which shifts from real to surreal at the flick of a switch. Although the piece deals with some serious themes and requires emotional depth we are looking for actors with a light, simple, and straightforward approach. These characters are very human...except when they're fish.

Lucy- (female 20's) intelligent, curious, guarded. A science student attempting to reach an understanding of her mother's illness and cure through several experiments involving electricity. Begins with good intentions but quickly becomes obsessed and consumed by her work. Actor will also play eight year old Lucy in flashback scenes.
Considering both union and non-union.

Clare- (female 20's) Lucy's roommate and friend. Funny, caring, uninhibited. Often speaks without a filter. Non-union only.

Mark- (male 20's) Lucy's boyfriend- earnest, loving, sensitive, quirky. Much more right brained than left. A patient man but not without limits. Non-union only

Louise (35-early 50's)- Lucy's mother. Struggles with everyday life and mental illness. Throughout the play she is at once sexual, confused, forgetful, courageous, and wise. Considering both union and non-union.

One versatile actor to play multiple roles including:
Conrad (male 35-early 50's) Lucy's father. Kind, caring, understanding, proud parent. We also see him in flashbacks struggling to balance both parenthood and his wife's illness.
Allesandro (male 40's-early 50's)  17th-century Italian. Sexual, mysterious, mischievous.
Eugene (male, old, 70's+) From the old country. A widower who misses his wife and longs to reunite with her. Brave, fearless, insightful. Ready to go!

Considering both union and non-union
