Call for Actors for Spirits of Rokeby

Rokeby Museum is seeking actors! Spirits of Rokeby is a short-form, low-commitment production. Background: the historic owners of Rokeby were advocates of Spiritualism and held séances in the home. The séance transcripts have been adapted into a script, recreating visitations that occurred 180 years ago in the same home. The audience receives a history talk from staff about Spiritualism before entering the home where costumed actors, lights, and sound bring the séances to life. 

Performances are 20 minutes with 30 minutes break between. 5 performances Friday evening, 10/28, and 8 performances on Saturday, 10/29 with a dinner break. 5 rehearsals in Oct. plus a dress rehearsal show week. Actors receive a monetary stipend and show-day dinners. Actors of all experience levels are welcome, and monologues are welcome but not required. Join this for this unique experience!

Roles: 
1. Miss Irish: professional medium, charismatic/vigorous spirit (feminine presenting, any age)
2. Rowland Robinson: Victorian, stoic presence (masculine presenting, 40-60 y/o) 
3. Thomas R. Robinson: a spirit from Summer Land (masculine presenting, 60-90 y/o)
4. Thomas R. Robinson Jr.: a spirit from Summer Land (masculine presenting, 18-40 y/o) 

Auditions: Thursday, 9/29 at 5:15pm at Rokeby Museum: 4334 Route 7, Ferrisburgh. Contact Tucker Foltz at tfoltz@rokeby.org to reserve a spot. Walk-ins accepted.
