Dacha Theatre CASTING for new interactive show, The Veil
About the project and the company
Seeking actors, improvisors, storytellers and artists of all backgrounds and disciplines!
Dacha Theatre is casting for our upcoming production of The Veil, an original devised, immersive show directed by Nathan Whitehouse, creator of Dacha’s Ghost Party!
The show will run October 13th – November 12th
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Long ago, a secretive gathering of occultists, magicians, scholars and seekers of worlds beyond our own discovered a secret best left forgotten. In The Veil, Dacha’s newest immersive spectacular, audiences explore the past, present, and beyond of an original, expansive world as they piece together the truth of what happened at that fateful gathering – and shape the future for those who remain.
This production is fully interactive with audiences exploring the space and engaging directly with the characters. Actors will be talking to the audience, facilitating puzzles, and leading the audience through the story. Portions of the show will take place through seances, where audiences contact characters while only being able to hear their voice – actors will bring the world beyond the Veil to life through narration and storytelling.
Auditions will run in Dacha’s group audition workshop format, and be followed by callbacks.
