Electric Eye Ensemble is seeking a non-equity female or non-binary actor, aged 30–65, for an upcoming residency. Trans women strongly encouraged to apply.
Welcome to the Doll Den: A New Musical
Directed by Sarah Plotkin
In Memphis, Tennessee, we meet the first all-girl radio station, WGAL. It’s 1955, and the “jockettes” are making radio for women from their studio, the Doll Den. But as time marches forward, the shtick gets old and the women want more. What happens when an all-women's station is so good men start listening? Inspired by real events, Welcome to the Doll Den tells a story about masks, identity, and the cost of success. Read more.
Doris Cabot is the Station Manager at WGAL, where she runs day-to-day operations. She is the most experienced radio person at the station, and the other women look up to her both for her knowledge and her strength. She is forward-thinking and believes that the station should reflect women’s real needs and interests, rather than what men think women should listen to. Actor must be a strong singer and guitar player.
Rehearsals in NYC two or three days a week from February 1st through February 28th
Residency in Texas from Wednesday, February 28th, through Tuesday, March 6th
Meals, housing, and travel will be covered for the residency, and all collaborators will receive a stipend.
