Zombie Actors Needed for On-Going Part-Time Work in Toronto, ON
Location: Toronto, ON
We are looking for contract actors to portray characters in an ongoing interactive theater production of “Trapped In A Room With A Zombie” in TORONTO. This is a suspenseful comedy that is currently playing throughout North America and Europe.
WHAT WE NEED:
Character: Gretchen/Gustavo Von Guttenberg (Chief Lab Technician)
This role is completely interactive from the minute our guests walk through the door until they depart as undead flesh eaters. Guttenberg is an actor in the show as well as the director of the 12 actors in the show who are the protagonists and decide their own fate. This role is extremely outgoing! We need bubbly folks with volcanic, improv personalities ready to erupt with excitement about the show.
Character: Dr. Oxy.
This character is a fully costumed starving zombie! This actor is a loud, athletic floor dweller who spends the duration of the show (1 hour) on his/her stomach and knees chasing the other actors (participants) around the room. This role can be very physically demanding and calls for being incredibly vocal each and every show. Dr. Oxy should go home exhausted, but never hungry for human flesh!
This role demands a keen sense of dramatic timing and live interaction between the show participants.
Actors with a history of improv excel in both roles. All contractors that we hire will need to play both roles.
More info about this interactive production can be found at our website, www.roomescapeadventures.com.
37 Bulwer Street
Toronto, ON M5T 1A1
Auditions will be held on Thursday and Friday (MARCH 26th and 27th) at 6PM sharp!
We will rotate our actors on a regular basis, our normal show schedule is as follows:
Wed., Thurs., & Fri.
Sat. & Sun.
All contracted actors are paid $30 per performance. Half of your performances you will be Von Guttenberg and the other half you will be Dr. Oxy. There is the potential to make $150 – $300 a week. This depends on the number of shows you schedule for. Actors submit availability in advance and essentially pick when they want to work. Each show is about an hour and a half long.
Must have a smart phone to be able to check show goers in. Must have access to Facebook. Being well traveled, and or college educated is preferred. We are looking for great actors. Again, all actors are private contractors and are responsible for their own costumes, make up and knee pads. A resume showing a great work ethic that demonstrates a history of responsibility and trust will go a long way in getting invited to an audition. Experience as a tour guide is helpful as well.
HOW TO APPLY:
Please submit a resume with references, a headshot, a few sentences about yourself and why you would make an awesome Dr. Oxy/Guttenberg to firstname.lastname@example.org . We will select candidates and invite them to auditions. Serious inquiries only.
We look forward to hearing from you!
