Hidden Audition Notice

Posted on Jul 27, 2016

This month we’re holding auditions for our fall production of Hidden by Sebastien Archibald. This show is co-directed by ITSAZOO Co-Artistic Producers Chelsea Haberlin and Sebastien Archibald.

Hidden is a site-specific, promenade Halloween horror show taking place in the UBC Botanical Gardens. The actors will be required to be outside for the duration of rehearsals and the run. All applicants need to be comfortable being in the woods, at night, in the dark, in the fall, in the rain. Please do not apply if you’re not up for the challenge of an outdoor production. This is for the adventurous at heart! Having said that, we will be providing some respite from the savage outdoors (greenroom with heat, showers, washrooms, kitchen). Performers will be required to interact with the audience, some audience movement and improvisation will be required.

We are currently casting:

Ian Smith – Male, Early 20s, open ethnicity. Outgoing university student. A natural class clown. Likeable, funny. A bit of a rebel.

Trudy Lee – Female, Early 20s, Asian. University student. Goth. Gives zero shits. Reclusive.

Greg & Killer – Male, 30s, open ethnicity. Class 4 license required. Large in stature (think Jason Voorhees or Michael Myers). Able to command the attention of a group of people. Charismatic. Looking for a strong mover. There will be a movement component to this audition.

Dee & Ghost – Female, 20s, open ethnicity, Class 4 license required. A stage manager who is a natural leader. Articulate, strong and clear. Ability to be menacing. Looking for a strong mover. There will be a movement component to this audition.


We are using the CAEA Indie 2.1 agreement.
