Audition Call: MR. BURNS, Outside the March

We’re holding auditions for our next big theatrical experience!

OtM is currently looking for a female performer with musical theatre experience to play the roles of “Jenny” and “Bart Simpson” in our upcoming Toronto production of Mr. Burns, a post-electric play by Anne Washburn. The play imagines a post-apocalyptic world devoid of electricity, in which the dominant form of entertainment  has become theatrical re-enactments of old episodes of The Simpsons.

Mr. Burns will be staged as an immersive, site-specific experience.

Character Breakdown

  • Jenny – Female, of any ethnicity, 20-40 years of age. Talkative, diplomatic, tough, trying to make the best of a bad situation.  Also doubles as: Bart Simpson. The hero of an operatic musical, performed 75 years after the apocalypse. Bears only a passing resemblance to his television counterpart.

Audition Requirements
Actors will be emailed sides from the play to prepare. In addition, we ask that all who audition prepare a 2 minute musical compilation of snippets of your favourite contemporary pop songs, to be sung a cappella at the audition. Have fun with this!
