Director Jean Xavier Brager is looking for 10 women of all ages and 10 men of all ages. Also needed for non-speaking parts, two boys ages 6-9, a puppeteer, a harpist and male and female athletes and dancers (including well-built men to play temple guards). Auditionees should prepare a two-minute monologue and be ready to read from the scripts and do some group exercises. The show will run April 7-10.
