Dallas — The Dallas Theater Center has changed some details about the previously announced open call for "living set decorations" for the September production of The Rocky Horror Show.
The call was previously set for 3-6 p.m. Saturday, July 26 at the Rose Room in S4 Nightclub; it's now moved to the Wyly Theatre at the AT&T Performing Arts Center, for the same time and day, although the open call period is shorter. It's 3-4 p.m. July 26. Sign up begins at 2:45 p.m.
Also, it is now open only to the auditioners, and not audiences who just want to watch the audition fun.
Here are the updated deets on the open call:
Open Call for Living Set Decorations
WHAT: The Rocky Horror Show director and choreographer Joel Ferrell is looking to enhance the set of DTC’s upcoming production with a few living decorations. Think you have a look or a talent that’s over-the-top enough? Then we want to see you at the Open Call.
WHO: Gender-benders, the glamorously tattooed, sword and fire swallowers, snake charmers, the unique, the bizarre, the unorthodox, the oh-my-goodness-I-can’t-believe-they-just-did-that-performer and anybody who has ever dreamt of being set decoration in a production of The Rocky Horror Show.
WHEN: Saturday, July 26, 3:00 – 4:00p
Doors open at 2:45pm
WHERE: The Wyly Theatre at the AT&T Performing Arts Center
Fifty (50) audition slots will be available for early reservation. If you’d like to skip the rush and reserve one of these slots, please email Laura Colleluori at Laura.Colleluori@DallasTheaterCenter.org. Please include your name, age, phone number and a brief description of your talent or look in your request for one of these slots. You will receive an email confirmation prior to the event if you were able to secure a reserved audition slot. An audition signup sheet will be available at 2:45p at the Open Call. Participants who sign up at the event will be able to audition on a first come, first served basis. Participants are encouraged to arrive early to allow time to fill out a short form and scope out the competition. Music will be provided. We will not accept song requests or audio files to play with an audition. Props, however, are highly encouraged.
Participants will have one minute to wow Joel (and the audience) before we move on to the next bit of crazy.
DTC is looking for a total of eight people for use during the run of The Rocky Horror Show, four per performance. The Rocky Horror Show runs September 11 through October 19, 2014. These are EXTRA roles and will be unpaid.
The event is not open for audiences to watch the auditions.
