Facility Theatre is holding auditions for its 2018 production The Little Match Girl Passion, which imagines a spatial, temporal, and visual hybridization of David Lang's 2008 Pulitzer Prize winning work. This work will immerse audiences visually and aurally into a multi-platformed synthesis. The work is scored for SATB, and the company is seeking one or more vocalists for each voice. Along with performing the vocal score, performers of the work will also execute a number of choreographed movements. Please note that specialized training in movement or dance is not required.


Performance and Rehearsal

Performances will take place at Holy Trinity Church in Noble Square.
