Production Managed by Josh Warner

 

This show is the debut production of Strongbox Theater which is in the design and construction phases of a brick and mortar venue located in East Rockaway, Long Island. Our mission is to build a new audience of theater goers for straight plays as a commercial, independent theater. We hope to get a jump start on that objective by offering this show free to the public.

 

BREAKDOWN

Seeking actors for an upcoming outdoor production of “The 39 Steps” to be rehearsed and performed in East Rockaway, Long Island this summer.

 

Looking for actors willing to work collaboratively and who have a history in sketch or physical comedy. Experience with characters, improv, clowning, foley, accents, or puppetry is a plus but we welcome actors of all experiences to submit!

 

All the roles in the play are performed by four actors. One plays Richard Hannay; one plays the three women in the play; and two “clowns” play every other character, including heroes, villains, men, women, children, and even the occasional inanimate object. We are also seeking two performers to create onstage foley and other effects.

 

AUDITIONS AND PERFORMANCES

Initial auditions will be held virtually via self tape with masked and in-person callbacks happening in East Rockaway, Long Island on Saturday, May 15th.

 

Rehearsals will start in June with performances starting July 8th and running weekends until August.

 

Actors who can sing, play an instrument, or have experience with foley, accents or clowning are strongly encouraged to apply.

 

Actors of all ages, genders, ethnicities, and abilities are strongly encouraged to apply. 

 

For consideration please submit your headshot, resume, and self-tape to auditions@strongboxtehater.com by end of day on Friday, May 7th.
