Director and 1 male actor needed for Stagecloud’s summer production of The Media Plays

Stagecloud, a new theater and media streaming company with contacts in Milwaukee, Chicago, and New York, is looking for an experienced director and a non-Equity male actor, mid 20’s–early 30’s, for its production this August of The Media Plays by Sean Douglass, running 8/7-8/16 at Milwaukee’s Tenth Street Theatre.  The Media Plays is a collection of four plays in different genres, from a Mexican telenovela to a Disney-inspired piece about a prince and princess having marital problems, that collectively ask questions about how we respond to the themes and values of our media-saturated culture.

Stagecloud is a new kind of theater company for the 21st century.  In addition to our live shows, we will also offer an online library of our plays to be streamed after they close, as well as a Redbubble store for our original show art and merchandise, an iTunes page for our original music, and an ongoing series of articles and podcasts containing interviews with theater artists from all over the country, including writers from Netflix and HBO.  We are affiliated with The Clyde Fitch Report, an arts and politics site by one of the founders of TheaterMania, and are preparing a wide national advertising campaign on social media as well; between these two channels, along with a few other affiliated theaters, we should be able to launch in front of an audience of approximately 1 million theatergoers around the country next month.

This is a paid gig.  A major portion of all ticket sales will also be going to the actors and director, and 10% will be donated to a charity related to the themes of the show.

If this sounds appealing to you, please send a headshot and resume to Douglass.Sean.M@gmail.com.  If you fit what we are looking for, we will be in touch to schedule an informal reading with us.

Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you.
