AUDITION NOTICE: Taylor Mac’s HIR

Jobsite Theater is holding auditions for Taylor Mac’s HIR on Mon., Jan. 8 from 6 to 9pm at the Straz Center. These auditions are by invitation and appointment only. If you have already previously applied for the trans role of Max, you do not need to submit materials again. All roles are paid, AEA applicants local to the Tampa Bay area will be considered for the role of Paige.

Paige Connor: 55 (casting open to performers who read 50+). Cisgender mother to Max and Isaac. Wife to Arnold. Main actions are to entertain, excite, and tear apart old regimes.

Arnold Connor: 58 (casting open to performers who read 50+). Cisgender father to Max and Isaac. Husband to Paige. Main actions are those of an old dog: eat, sleep, and get comfortable.  Arnold was an angry man but had a stroke, which has turned him into a kind of clown — a rather older and slower Harpo Marx.

Isaac Connor: 24 (casting open to performers who read 22-35). Cisgender son to Paige and Arnold. Brother to Max. Main actions are to assess the situation, assert himself, and keep things under control. The action is one long attempt to squash down his PTSD. There should be peaks and valleys, but he is written to have a slow burn from start to finish.

Max Connor: 17 (casting is open to performers 15-21, but minors must have a legal adult sign for them). Transgender child of Arnold and Paige. Sibling to Isaac. Main actions are to excite, ward off attacks, showboat, raise hir status on the family totem pole, and stake hir intellectual territory. NOTE: This actor must be played by someone assigned female at birth but who now identifies as transgender or genderqueer (full disclosure: preference will be given to transgender actors).

All roles are open to any ethnicity.

To be considered for an audition, please submit materials to auditions AT JobsiteTheater DOT org no later than Dec. 30 at 5pm.

You may also contact us through the form on this page with further questions.
