CAST

Fill out the cast application form for your chance to play a role.
Calling all nightclub dramatic types. If you like to be the center of attention and enjoy electronic dance music then Electro-Social Club (ESC) invites you to apply to perform in for an innovative, weird and unusual experiment. ESC is what you get when an electronic music producer and a musical theatre nerd collaborate. Sounds like a joke but it is in fact the product of a seriously fun live DJ act where the audience becomes part of the performance.

Actors are needed to play the various nightclub characters/freaks of Electro Social Club in short 1-2 minute talking scenes followed by physically being the characters by improvising throughout a song.  Actors are filmed live in the venue and projected onto the screen during the show. It is up to you how little and how much your character takes on before or after “your” song. There are optional dancing sections. Entire show is 75 minutes and begins around 11 PM. 11 roles available- 6 male, 4 female, 1 could be either male or female including:

1. The Pick-up Artist: Male aged 20-50. Confidant and obnoxious, cool and a bit slimy. Studies The Game.
