Jobsite is accepting materials for our March 2022 production of Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange, a play with music. Dan Granke directs, with a Beethoven-driven sound design by Jeremy Douglass. This is an 8-week contract, paid $300 a week.
A Clockwork Orange lures audiences into a glass-edged, testosterone-filled underworld of a dystopian future. In 1962, the explosive tale of little Alex and his band of Droogs was a ground-breaking insta-classic teeming with sexuality and “a bit of the old ultra-violence.” The story feels as hauntingly relevant today as when the book was published in 1962 and when Stanley Kubrick’s Oscar-nominated film caused a stir in 1971. A Clockwork Orange remains an unapologetic celebration of the human condition and individual freedoms.
We hope to cast a diverse ensemble of 10 that will play multiple roles (with the exception of the performer portraying Alex). All genders are welcome and all performers in the ensemble will likely portray multiple genders in the show.
Rehearsals begin Feb. 1, working weekday evenings and weekend afternoons.
The show runs Thu. – Sat. evenings at 8pm and Sun. at 4pm. All personnel are called 1 hour prior to curtain. This show marks Jobsite’s return to the Shimberg Playhouse for the first time in two years.
This call is exclusive to non-union performers 18 years and older in the Tampa Bay area. We cannot offer AEA contracts, housing, travel, or per diem for out of town performers.
Jobsite and The Straz operate with a great emphasis on health and safety, and while information changes frequently we keep protocols public and up-to-date.
Jobsite is committed to inclusion, diversity, and equity in our casting practices.
