Virtual Auditions for Dangerous Liaisons

Head Trick Theatre seeks actors of all races/ethnicities, ages, and gender identities for a web series of Dangerous Liaisons! This classic novel of sexual-romantic war games is well-known for its theatre and film adaptation, but in its original form, it’s all told through letters from people in one place to people in another, and has been newly adapted for socially distant performance.

Auditions will be open from the morning of May 7th through 11:59pm on May 20, 2020. Sides will be made available before the audition period begins.

Available roles:

CÉCILE VOLANGES, F, teens-20s
CHEVALIER DE DANCENY, M, 20s
MARQUISE DE MERTEUIL, F, 30s-40s
VICOMTE DE VALMONT, M, 30s-40s
MADAME DE TOURVEL, F, 20s-30s
MADAME DE VOLANGES, F, 40s-60s
MADAME DE ROSEMONDE, F, 60s-80s
AZOLAN, M, 20s-40s
COMTE DE GERCOURT, M, 30s-50s
FATHER ANSELM, M, 30s-80s
MONSIEUR BERTRAND, M, 40s-60s

Full character descriptions are available here.

Due to the limitations of the production (no costumes), we do not anticipate cross-casting these roles. Please contact us at headtricktheatre@gmail.com if you have questions.

Actors are asked to submit a video of themselves reading one or more of the provided sides, along with a resume. Please use this audition form to submit.

Actors in any location may audition, although preference will be given to actors in the Rhode Island/Massachusetts/Connecticut area. Head Trick is based in Providence, RI and we look forward to working with you on live plays when all this is over!

This event is not a cold reading, although memorization will not be required. Rehearsals (a handful) will be held over Zoom video chat, and actors will record their material in their homes.
