Please share a video clip of two contrasting songs in the style of the show.

If available, you may also share a dance reel or performance clip showcasing your movement abilities.
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.
SEE PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS IN BREAKDOWN. All submissions should be emailed. Along with your audition material, please include a headshot and resume. Videos may be sent via Youtube or Vimeo links. Submissions are due no later than 12:00pm ET on January 31st, 2022.
