One Little Goat Theatre Company is holding auditions for our September 2014 world premiere of UBU MAYOR, a satirical play with music by Artistic Director Adam Seelig in which the internationally renowned antics of Toronto politics meet the radical spirit of Ubu Roi, Alfred Jarry’s merde-filled masterpiece of 1896.

Dates: performances September 12-21, 2014; rehearsals TBD.

We are seeking actors of the highest calibre with excellent singing abilities for the following roles – actors of all vocal ranges and cultural backgrounds welcome:

  • UBU: a man who is mayor (age 35-45)
  • HUHU: a woman who is Ubu’s spouse (age 30-40)
  • DUDU: a man who is Ubu’s brother (age 35-45)

Please submit résumé and headshot by email to Adam Seelig, Artistic Director, chadgadya@gmail.com by MONDAY JUNE 2. *Optional: if available, please forward a link to a sample of your singing abilities.

Only CAEA members will be considered.  Only those selected for an audition will be contacted. Actors will be engaged under a form of Equity policy.
