Audition Notice 2018.jpg

Four days of open auditions – come to any one day, whichever is most convenient. Ideally, come for the entire session – if not, come when you can and stay as long as you can. No need to prepare a monologue but you can if you like. Dress comfortably and be ready to move. You’re auditioning for all three productions unless you request otherwise.

Kumu Kahua Theatre Holds an Audition Workshop and Auditions for the World Premiere of Demigods Anonymous by Noa Helela

Donna Blanchard

Power is both a curse and a gift.  As a modern demigod, Noe takes college courses, parties with her friends, and tries to stop herself from turning into a giant lizard.  Her friend, Marcella, is dealing with her unwanted tendency to become a mountain lion; Blaine transforms into a shark when aggravated.  These contemporary Kupua are like most people in their 20s... except for their ability to manifest ancient demigod powers and transform into animals...

There will be a free audition workshop held from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm Wednesday January 31, 2018, also at Kumu Kahua Theatre.  This optional workshop is an opportunity for all interested to work with the script and director, learn the best way to prepare for this audition and hone your audition skills.
