Seeking performers ages 18 and older of all races, ethnicities, gender identities, gender expressions, and physical abilities to perform in six (6) dynamic, exuberant, and whimsical characters in a new adaptation of the traditional folktale of Anansi the spider. Taking the role of “a trickster,” Anansi is one of the most important characters of West African, African American, and Caribbean folklore. Actors must be available for evening and weekend rehearsals, and must have flexibility for some daytime/morning performances at local schools. This is a paid opportunity.

A note from the playwright and director: All performers will work puppets in this production. Performers should have the ability to change characters with specificity, precision, and nuance. Throughout the play, performers will be scene partners with the puppet they are operating.
