Audition for "The American Revolution" Tour

Theater Unspeakable and Let's Make History Productions LLC

Post Date: Feb 2, 2024

Theater Unspeakable and Let’s Make History Productions are seeking Actors for a Spring 2024 tour.


Theater Unspeakable is a devised, physical theater company based in Chicago with a proven track record of touring nationally and Let’s Make History Productions is dedicated to producing Theater Unspeakable’s show “The American Revolution”.


Theater Unspeakable (TU) and Let’s Make History will be holding an audition for its show, “The American Revolution”. The show features seven actors, two feet off the ground, sharing 21 square feet of space and recreating the entire American fight for independence from Lexington to Yorktown. Using only the actor's bodies, voices and (pantomimed) cannons, the show evokes an epic time period in American history. Combining tongue-in-cheek humor with a dash of derring-do, The American Revolution displays Theater Unspeakable's rowdy brand of bare-boned and imaginative physical theater.


TU is seeking performers who are:

1-    comfortable with movement as well as text and music delivery

2-    have the ability to portray multiple characters and accents

3-    enjoy physical-based work


We encourage artists identifying as BIPOC and/or LGBTQ+ to submit.


All contracted work with Theater Unspeakable is PAID.


Performers are asked to wear movement clothes and to be available for their entire one-hour time slot. The workshop will consist of physical games and exercises, creating original stories in groups and as individuals.


This project will be rehearsing from March 23-30 in the Philadelphia area with performances in Long Island, NY (April 4-5), Wilmington, DE (April 8-9), Providence, RI (April 10-11), Valley Forge, PA (May 18 + June 1).


This contract will pay $1800 plus travel per diems. All travel and accommodation outside Philadelphia will be provided by the company.
