An evolution on TM’s signature show, Fugue, this production weaves three 45-minute scenes together as they play out onstage simultaneously. The show is captures elements of a musical fugue through three simultaneous improvised one-act plays that explore similar themes. The evolution of the form is in the three scenes existing in the same world, creating a complex woven narrative that emerges as the show unfolds.
Auditions will be held on Wednesday, May 16th and Sunday, May 20th. We are seeking to cast 14-15 players. All interested performers must attend an audition, even if you have been in the ensemble previously.
Auditions are just for Fugue State, and any future productions will be cast independently.
Pay: A small stipend of $25 total for the entire show run will be paid to all performers, in addition to commissions for ticket referrals. As a small company, we want some part of the production income to go back to every performer, as many other improv theatres in Chicago do not do.
The auditions will run 7-10 PM on Wednesday, May 16th, 7-10 PM and 12-3 PM on Sunday, May 20th. Auditioners are expected to remain the entire audition time, so please plan accordingly.
All rehearsals will be on Wednesday nights, May 23-July 18, 7:30-10 PM. No rehearsal 7/4
Performances will be 8:30 PM on Friday and Saturday nights, July 20-August 25
All auditions and performances will take place at Pendulum Space, 1803 W. Byron St, Suite 216.
