On Air, a serial drama in 12 episodes
Theatre Momentum presents our ongoing serial drama, On Air.
On Air is an improvised 12-part drama, set in a radio station in the 1940’s. Real radio drama scripts from the era will be used during the show with full foley and live music. The off-air relationships will fill in the majority of the show, with those stories continuing from week to week. Every actor will portray the ongoing narrative of a single character, as this intricate drama unfolds. Characters and initial storylines will be developed during the rehearsal process, and continued into 12 performances.
Auditions will be held on Wednesday, April 3rd and Sunday, April 7th. We are seeking to cast 12-14 players. All interested performers must attend an audition, even if you have been in the ensemble previously.
Auditions are just for On Air and any future productions will be cast independently. All auditions are 18+ only, and it is strongly suggested that auditioners have 6 months or more experience in improv/acting.
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, April 3rd, and 12-3 PM on Sunday, April 7th. Auditioners are expected to remain the entire audition time, so please plan accordingly.
All rehearsals will be on Wednesday nights, April 10-May 29, 7:00-9:30 PM.
Performances will be 8:30 PM on Friday and Saturday nights, May 31-July 13 (no shows on 7/5, 7/6)
All auditions and performances will take place at Pendulum Space, 1803 W. Byron St, Suite 216.
