Enron Auditions for Actors – 1481186
03-25-15 – Albany, NY>Hartford, CT – Hailed as a thrilling corporate Macbeth, Lucy Prebble’s smash London hit, ENRON, follows the rise and fall of the ill-fated Texas energy giant as told through the lens of some of its most infamous players. Inspired by real-life events and using music, dance and video, ENRON explores one of the most infamous scandals in financial history, reviewing the tumultuous 1990s and casting a new light on the financial turmoil in which the world currently finds itself.

With sharp dialogue, intense courtroom drama, dark humor, vaudevillian theatrics, and a trio of velociraptors, ENRON is more than a case study, it is a cautionary tale of greed, power, corporate sociopathy, human nature, and the dangers of blindly following “the smartest men in the room.”

Actors will be asked to read from the script. Although this is NOT a musical, there is some light singing. Actors interested in singing roles will be asked to sing up to 16 bars a cappella. Actors with skills in puppetry, juggling, and other unusual talents are strongly encouraged. Actors are also asked to come in “business attire” if possible.

A Note On This Script: Although there are a few “Principal” Roles, this script comes alive through its ensemble. Actors will be challenged to portray multiple roles and characters with meaningful scene work and significant stage time. The vibrant and involved ensemble creates the world of chaos in which the story unfolds. They are Stock Analysts, Traders, Reporters, Lawyers, Lehman Brothers, Arthur Andersen, Ramsey & Hewitt, Congresswomen, Senators, Federal Marshalls, and just about everything else under the sun. — Project Type: Live Event
