Auditions for Incredibly Dead!

November 17th, 2017

Your favorite rock opera society is looking for badass actors, singers, and dancers for our spring 2018 original full-length production, Incredibly Dead!

ABOUT THE SHOW:

Incredibly Dead! tells the story of Reggie and Silas Cryptz, two moronic, unscrupulous morticians who are down on their luck. When they come across a secret chemical created by a nefarious madman, they throw caution to the wind to try and save their own skins. This is a classic B-horror romp with bad people doing bad things, and bad things happening to them.

Show dates are expected to be April 27-May 20, 2018 (TBC).

We will be casting 11 lead/supporting lead roles and 7 ensemble roles for this show. The character list is below. We are open to changing characters’ genders or cross-casting. We are not seeking any particular demographic for these roles; trans actors, non-binary actors, and actors of color are highly encouraged to audition.

-Reggie Cryptz: A charismatic, egotistical mortician who is only concerned with the almighty dollar. He is a massive idiot.
-Silas Cryptz: Reggie's brother. He runs the more technical aspects of their mortuary business. He has turned a blind eye to Reggie's schemes. He is a slightly less massive idiot. Innocent and kind-hearted.
-General Maximillian Morder: A rogue military general with designs to end the world with a brilliant scheme. Idiosyncratic, witty, and imposing. The main "big bad." He is a crazy person.
-Margaux Morder: The General's daughter. A skilled, highly-trained assassin. She's cool as a cucumber, tough as nails, and the only person in this show with a modicum of common sense.
-Victor Coombs: The patriarch of the Coombs family. A highly successful and cantankerous businessman. He is a dead person. He might not stay that way.
-Baron Bryson Coombs: Victor's brother. A gregarious glutton who mourns the passing of Victor. He is a lovable, charming man. He undergoes a radical "change."
-Constance Coombs: Victor's second wife. A former beauty pageant contestant turned world-renowned psychologist. She is despondent over the loss of Victor. She undergoes an equally radical "change."
-Catherine Catty Coombs: Victor's daughter. A failed actress and an insufferable megalomaniac. She loathes her uncle and step-mother. She may be crazier than General Morder.
-Claude Coombs: Catherine's son. A serial killer with a positive mental attitude. He does not have a face. Like, seriously. Because he ate it. He's a hoot!
-Purity Coombs: Catherine's daughter. She is a sociopath.
-Patience Coombs: Purity's twin sister. She shares what seems to be a "hive mind" with Purity.
-7 ensemble members for acting, singing, and dancing roles. There are no dance-only roles, though some roles may be non-singing. Each ensemble member will play multiple parts, including General Morder's troops, corpses during a dance routine, and military soldiers.
