casting call: swing dancing puppets

The interesting things one discovers in the Realm of Net via Google Alerts. From today's web-trawl:

Powerhouse - male actors needed Casting no. 104560 - New York, USA
A collaborative piece about the brilliant but forgotten composer, Raymond Scott

Sinking Ship Productions is looking for male actors for our upcoming production, POWERHOUSE. The play will be built collaboratively through research and rehearsal over the course of three to four months. We are particularly interested in actors with Viewpoints, puppetry and/or collaboration experience.

POWERHOUSE will explore the complex artistic life of composer and musical engineer Raymond Scott. The performers will work together with writers and the director to create the play through improvisation, using Viewpoints and found text. We will draw inspiration from his writing, compositions, interviews and other sources, and use a combination of live acting, puppetry and music to tell the story.

Actor/puppeteers in the ensemble will play multiple roles. Swing dancing or puppetry experience a plus but not required for all roles except Raymond Scott. All roles are age-flexible.

More at the link above. Crazy idea. May it succeed.

Perhaps they can get this guy to star as the male lead. All they have to do is ask!
