Seeking Trans Femme Actor for Staged Reading

CATEGORY: Performer

Daisy Theatricals
New York, NY

Job Details


A new play development collective is seeking an NYC-based trans femme actor to participate in an upcoming staged reading in our 2024 season.
Daisy Theatricals is a theatrical producing collective that aims to foster New Works and New Play Development, to uplift the voices of both new artists and those who have not had the opportunity to have their work heard, and to create a space for artists of all backgrounds to thrive. We create diverse programming that invites artists to join us at wherever they might be on their own developmental path.

We are seeking an actor to read for the role of JACKIE from The Feminine Urge by Caleb Dukes. Synopsis: Carson, a trans sex worker turned serial killer living in New York City, deals with giving into expectations, processing and accepting her thirst for revenge, and the nature of feminine and masculine relationships. Meant for mature audiences, "The Feminine Urge" grapples with what it would be like to give into the queer villainy trope in a comedic, unfiltered way. Can you justify violence?
Rehearsals will take place on July 18-20 from 7-10 PM and the performance for July 21 from 6-10 PM. There may also be a table reading on Zoom beforehand scheduled around everyone's availability.

We are a nonprofit organization with a mission of making financially accessible programming – this means that all of our projects are currently presented at no cost to the artists that participate or to the audience members that attend. It also means that we cannot offer payment for artistic services rendered, so this offer is based on your own availability and desire to create! Any materials such as photography or videography will be provided for future usage by all performers.

If interested, please submit 30 seconds of a comedic reading and 30 seconds of a dramatic reading or any other professional supplemental materials, such as a reel or portfolio, to [email protected] with the subject line "JACKIE SUBMISSION".
