If you like to be the centre of attention and enjoy electronic dance music then Electro-Social Club (ESC) invites you to apply as an actor for an interactive, visual, EDM experience that will blow your mind.
ESC is what you get when an electronic music producer and a musical theatre nerd collaborate. Sounds like a joke, but it is in fact the product of a seriously fun live DJ act where the audience becomes part of the performance.
ESC is an Iron Mountain Theatre production, the same people who brought you Ski Bum: The Musical, Mennonite Mafia and Company Jump.
In ESC, 11 actors are cast in every city on the tour, each playing the various stereotypical nightclub freaks you know so well: the pick-up artist, the dance fluffer, the bouncer, the connaisseur and the forever raver, to name a few.
Actors short, one-to-two-minute talking scenes are filmed live in the nightclub and projected onto the screen on stage. And if you’re feeling ambitious and want to take on more of the spotlight, some improv and choreography are optional.
To further explain how it works: You apply on our website, we chat with you about the role and, if chosen we send you a password protected link with script, music and all the details letting you know how it’s going to work.
Then you show up at rehearsal the day of the show with all your lines memorized, you work with our director and videographer, we perform the show that night, we pay you your honorarium and everyone’s stoked because it was so fun.
Deadline for casting is March 1. No minors please.
The music is written by Sonicanimation and Night Bandit and is a variety of electro-dance tracks including breakbeat, trap, hip hop, 1980’s pop, opera and more.
ESC and the creative team are playing Miners’ Union Hall on Friday, March 21 and invite you to be part of the fun. To find out more about the commitment, the show, the characters in it, or to apply for a role, visit www.electrosocialclub.com/cast.
