6-15 UnSemble company members who will write, direct and perform plays as well as assist the company with organizational needs such as marketing, technical support and any additional production requirements.  Please note that this company is based in Neo-Futurism and as such aims to present actual life on stage by creating a world in the theatre that has no pretense or illusion. In short, you are who you are, you are where you are, you are doing what you are doing and the time is now. Looking specifically for diversity in viewpoints from perspectives of race, politics, gender identity, religion, physical ability and age.  Due to the rehearsal schedule and the nature of the work to be done, only auditioning performers who are over 18.

Please be prepared to perform two original pieces approximately 2 minutes in length that reflect in truth who you are, how you express yourself and how you process the world around you.  Bring a hard copy of those pieces with you. Looking for artists that can express themselves in a variety of ways…performers, actors, dancers, singers, contortionists and comedians. If you dance, please move.  If you sing, sing. Can you do the worm? Bring it on? Got a really sexy marketing portfolio – whip it out! Want to see everything that you can do. Very interested in artists with additional experience in technical theater, arts management and/or marketing.

Salary/Pay Rate: UnSemble members earn a profit share of 40% of ticket sales per performance and differing shares of annual profits per additional work done throughout the season. New performers must make a six-month commitment to the company – not necessarily consecutively - but we should be able to count on you to be able to perform or assist the performances for six (1)-month periods of your choosing.

Rehearsals:  Rehearsals are 2 nights a week for 2-3 weeks prior to each run (runs are anywhere from 1-6 weeks in length depending on venue availability).  Additional rehearsals are 2 nights a week during the performance run itself. Additional workshopping sessions may be required throughout the year.

Performances:  Performances vary throughout the season but generally occur Fridays or Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 6pm with occasional late night performances on Fridays or Saturdays at 10:30 or 11pm.  Additional special events are added throughout the season.

Please note that there is no “home” theater.  UnTheatre travels throughout Southeast Michigan and plan to travel throughout the state.  This is not traditional theater in any sense. The goal is to use Neo-Futurism to break down barriers and connect on a personal level in order to come together as human beings and affect change in our society inclusive of our varying backgrounds.  Also want to create a platform for people to use writing and performance to process what is happening in the world around them. Please make sure to visit the website prior to your auditions and familiarize yourself.  www.UnTheatreCo.org
