WHAT TO PREPARE:
For audition, please prepare one short monologue that displays strong comedic ability. Also prepare one short chorus of any up-tempo song to be sung a cappella. Please be prepared to demonstrate improvisational skills if called upon.
Seeking 3 highly energetic male comedic actors. Authentic timing and excellent improvisational skills are needed. Actors also need to be comfortable singing. All actors will play a variety of roles. Instrumental skills of any kind (piano, accordion, percussion, zither, triangle, etc.) are highly desired, but not required. Also, any odd talents such as balancing ladders/chairs on the chin, juggling, magic tricks, or tumbling are preferred.
ABOUT THE PLAY:
Prepare ye the way for an irreverent roller coaster ride through the Good Book, from fig leaves to final judgment, as three cultural guerrillas tackle the great theological questions. No one is safe, especially the first row, and everything you thought you knew about the most widely read book in history will be turned upside down. Bolts of lighting are headed this way.
"There is no doubt about it, these three lads are in a league of their own when it comes to vivid originality... They have sublime moments of surreal theatricality. Sly minds are at work throughout." – The London Daily Mail
ABOUT THE DIRECTOR:
Jay Duffer returns to Amphibian after last being seen onstage as Martin Luther in the award winning production of David Davalos' Wittenberg. Duffer, a Texas native, spent many years as a professional actor, director and playwright living and working in New York City and now resides in Indiana. His directing credits include: Big Girl, Little World (The Greenwich Street Theatre, 2003 New York International Fringe Festival), Cratchett Farm (Dillon's Reprise Room and Upstairs@Red) and an original one act comedy, Carl and Shelly: Best Friends Forever, for the 2008 New York International Fringe Festival (Lafayette Street Theatre) produced by the Kaleidoscope Theatre Company. Duffer also directed the popular New York-based sketch comedy troupe, Freedumb, for many years. Freedumb played to sold-out crowds at the Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival, the Toronto International Sketch Comedy Festival and the DC Comedy Festival.
