Zombies wanted

The Northeast State Theater needs zombies.  And victims.

Northeast State Theater will stage the region’s first stage production of the cult classic Night of the Living Dead this fall.  The potential walking dead can strut their stuff at not one, but two open auditions scheduled Sept. 5 and 6 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.

The auditions are being held at the main campus at Blountville, 2425 Highway 75, adjacent to Tri-Cities Regional Airport.  Call backs will be made on Sept. 7 between 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Performers are asked to gather in the lobby of the WRCPA Theater.  performer is only required to attend one night of audition.  Auditions are open to performers aged 10 years old to adults.

The production casts 9 to 11 male speaking roles and five female roles.  The plays also requires up to 30 zombies needed for non-speaking roles.

Performers are asked to prepare a one-minute monologue to be read at the audition.  Females performers must be prepared to deliver their best “horror movie scream.”  The zombies will require a distinct walk and movement, so performers should be prepared to perform a convincing “zombie walk.”

The production run goes for two weekends: Oct. 25-28 and Nov. 1-4.  The play is being directed by Brad McKenzie.
