BREAKDOWN

PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS:
Please share a video clip of two contrasting songs in the style of the show. If preferred, those auditioning may use the pre-selected music sides which can be found along with pre-recorded accompaniment tracks here - https://drive.google.com/drive... . If available, you may also share a dance reel or performance clip showcasing your movement abilities.

Available Roles:

BASILIUS - King of Arcadia. A sexy, good ol' boy. A hothead, but not a despot. Blindly thinks Arcadia is doing great under his masculine rule, which will be sorely tested during the course of the show.

GYNECIA - Queen of Arcadia. Sexy, wise, beautiful. Like any longstanding spouse, knows how to get her way with her husband when push comes to shove.

PAMELA - Basilius and Gynecia's older daughter. Confident and obsessed with her appearance. Known to be the most beautiful bachelorette throughout Arcadia.

PHILOCLEA - Basilius and Gynecia's younger daughter. Shy and a "good girl", she yearns to follow her heart rather than obey her father's orders.

DAMETAS - The King’s viceroy; father to Mopsa.

MOPSA - Handmaiden to Pamela. Warm, skeptical. Growing up without a mother has made her wise beyond her years about everyone and everything, which is why she is the (sometime) narrator to the show.

MUSIDORUS - A young shepherd who courts after Philoclea.

PYTHIO - (any gender identity, any ethnicity) - The Oracle; powerful, mysterious. Demanding. Great sense of humor--can see through everyone--they are the Oracle of Delphi, after all.

ENSEMBLE - Unique, charismatic individuals to inhabit the kingdom of Arcadia.
