Electric Eye Ensemble is seeking a talented non-equity actor who identifies as female or non-binary, aged 21-45, to fill a role in an upcoming production! Trans actors strongly encouraged to apply.

TITLE: Welcome to the Doll Den

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.

Auditions by Appointment Only: Friday, July 14th 7-9pm and Sunday, July 16th 2-4pm. Audition location to be provided at time of appointment.

We are casting for two production opportunities:

  • Reading of the show on Thursday, August 31st with a rehearsal on Thursday, August 24th
  • Week-long residency and performance, tentatively October 9th-15th

This is a non-equity production. For the October residency meals, housing, and travel will be covered and all collaborators will receive a stipend.


ROLE:

Janie Juniper: A country girl, she moved to Memphis after getting married at a young age. She writes ads for the radio station and does her job well and efficiently with a quiet, unexpected sense of humor. She is loved by her friends but not fully understood by those who don’t know her well.

Actor should have experience or interest in devising and be comfortable singing onstage. Movement or dance training is a plus. Must be available for reading on August 31st and residency in October.
