Synopsis

Two narrators attempt to recreate all 209 of the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm in a wild, fast-paced extravaganza. To make it more difficult, they attempt to combine them into one gigantic fable using Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, Hansel and Gretel, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and other more obscure stories like Lean Lisa and The Devil's Grandmother.

Auditions

Auditions are April 12 6:30pm-9:00 & April 13 7:30pm-9:30pm
Actors can sign up for a 10-minute audition slot using sign-up genius, and must sign up no later than April 11th for a slot. Sides will be emailed to each actor in advance.

Each narrator will be played by two individual actors, the remaining characters will be played by the other 5 actors in the ensemble. Any of the roles may be played by any actor of any gender, race, or ethnicity, and all ages 16+.

The ensemble of actors are going to perform all 209 fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm jam packed into an hour!

This performance will be virtual from the actor's homes. Each actor has their own camera and the performance is live or recorded on a medium like Zoom or
GoogleHangouts. Props are duplicated (not necessarily identically) and the illusion is created by passing one to another if necessary. For instance—someone throws a baby doll offscreen and another actor “catches” a baby doll on their screen—it may not even look like the same doll.
