Hello cast of Grimms' Mad Tales!
We are excited to have you in the cast of our newest 'cast of hundreds' show. Spoon River Rochester was a huge hit in 2014 and Method Machine is back with all of you as part of the team. Are you ready to get Madly Grimm?!
This year we picked the classic children's stories and fairy tales of the Grimm Brothers, published from 1812-1857. These stories are the classics and the obscure, the grim and the cheerful, the expected and the unexpected that we grew up with in picture books, cartoons, movies and story time.
A few things to keep in mind (more details on the website):
Have a question? Write to firstname.lastname@example.org
Performance Dates: Sept 23rd and 24th at 6:00p.
Rehearsal Dates: Sept 10th, 11th & 18th from 2:00p - 4:00p
Stories and text (250 or less) will be assigned beginning August 9th.
Performers will pick one character from the story to create their costume.
The costume can be any period, any style, etc but must be limited to the colors
BLACK, WHITE, RED and/or PURPLE.
We are still looking for cast members. Tell your family, friends, co-workers, mailmen, dog walkers, your music teacher, your barista, your grocer. Please SHARE the website www.GRIMMSMADTALES.com on your social media.
Lastly, keep an eye out for future bulletins with important information. Next week you will get your character assignment, along with more info on costumes. In mid-August, we will release a series of videos to prep you for the show.
