Cassie Powell passed this audition announcement on to me. The company in question is the Thunderbirds. MoI alum Sang Kim is part of the inner, inner circle of this company, which makes it a good bet already, and other folks who have worked with them have only good things to say, so I would say give it a shot!
The Thunderbirds are a wonderfully talented group of folks who believe theatre should be fun! They are right. I worked with them on Lusty Booty in 2004, and it was fabulous because: the cast and crew were Magnifique!, we had amazing supportive audiences that belly laughed from beginning to end of the play and the run of the show, the whole experience was about joy and entertainment. They are holding auditions next week fo Release the Kraken! Details: AUDITIONS!

Show Synopsis: Zeus, Aphrodite, Athena and the other Greek Gods on Mount Olympus challenge our hero Perseus to slay the Kraken, the last of the Titan monsters! but wait? Perseus works in a strip mall? A comedic modern retelling of the Perseus Myth where the good must overcome challenges as the mighty Medusa, the creepy Three Stygian Witches, two-headed dogs, and overwhelming desires to play XBox or Ultimate Frisbee. Can our hero Perseus meet the trials given him by the Gods, or will he lose all that a minimum wage clerk holds dear in life?
I was clicking around the web yesterday and I came across this site called laughingsquid.com. It is a site that offers web hosting to artists, but is also an "SF Station"-style what's-going-on-in-SF kind of site, except that it looks a bit edgier, a bit more underground, in short, a bit more Mother of Invention, so I thought I would pass the word. They have something called the Squid List, which is a message board for announcing events, and there is also the Tentacle List, which is a place to post calls for artists, actors, and performers of various kinds. You can subscribe to any and all by email (daily digest available), or RSS feed. Or just bookmark the pages that interest you and check back from time to time. Decisions!
