    Company One Theatre Seeks Wheelchaired Actor for Production of "Colossal"

    The beauty and brutality of football seduce Mike to stray from the path his father had mapped out for him, but when a standard play goes catastrophically wrong, Mike has to tackle the past and make peace with the man he dreamed he would be.  Played in four quarters with a half-time show, dance company, and a drumline.  COLOSSAL's explosive theatrical storytelling and full-contact physicality carries this not-to-be-missed summer event all the way to the end zone.

    More info about the production can be found at Company One Theatre's website.

    Company One Theatre is committed to having this role played by an actor and/or athlete with a disability similar to the character of Mike.  It is necessary that potential candidates have a very developed upper body like that of an athlete and be able to use a manual wheelchair.

    Mike is about 22 years old, any race.  The level of paralysis will be adjusted, depending on the actor/athlete.  Before the accident, Mike was a dancer, a football player, and an extraordinary physical presence.  He is passionate, loyal, and stubborn.  Experience with theatrical performance is great, but not necessary.

    There will be a one-week workshop during the week of March 23, 2015.  Rehearsals will begin on May 31, 2015.  Colossal will run from July 17-August 16, 2015 at the Roberts Studio Theatre in the Calderwood Pavilion.  The theatre is fully accessible and other specific accommodations will be provided, if necessary.

    For more information, questions, or to get a copy of the play, contact Josh Glenn-Kayden at auditions@companyone.org.
