Cast Bulletin #2 Casting Assignments
View this email in your browser
Casting assignments have been made!
A few things to consider:
  • You have been randomly assigned a tale. See the title and link to the text below. Pick a character from your tale to portray, basing your persona and costume on this character.
  • Using less than 200 words, pick an excerpt of the tale to tell. 
    • We strongly recommend the end of the tale- this is the best part with both conflict and resolution.    
    • Consecutive words work best. 
    • If you are not starting with the beginning, start your tale with, "And then..."
    • DO NOT rewrite the tale. 
  • Casting was assigned randomly. 
  • Performers who signed up together will be located next to each other but your tales may not relate.

Now that you have taken this all in...we can almost read your mind: "Method Machine, we are doing what?!" Maybe you muttered something even more colorful to yourself. We understand your response because we ask ourselves that all the time.

Happy reading,
The Creative Team of Grimms' Mad Tales

Why only 200 words? 

First, we have learned, from rehearsals and Spoon River Rochester that 100-200 words is the perfect length for the audience to experience the stories AND the entire performance. Second, we recommend the end of the story because this is the BEST part! This is where the lessons are learned, the conflicts are waged and it is the part of the stories we know the least. Lastly, this is your show as much as it is ours. We love the creativity and energy you bring to creating the work.
