Our friends Universal Performing Arts Theatre Association and Bibimbap Theatre present a majestic English language adaption of the ancient Korean folktale, Princess Pyunggang (and Ondal the Fool). This show will feature a multi-talented troupe of seasoned professional performers and musicians (including Seoul Players artistic associate Jason Stone!)
Show dates: Friday August 3rd 7:30pm; Saturday August 4th 3:00pm & 7:00pm; Sunday August 5th 3:00pm & 7:00pm. At DongSeoul Art Hall. Tickets – 30,000won.
This age-old tale of the precocious Princess Pyunggang and the foolish, though big-hearted, (바보) Ondal, inspires endless love and peaceful transformation. The show’s thematic arc includes socio-economic differences, love, duty and loss. This fervent show unifies live traditional Korean instrumentation, original modern musical theatre songs, high energy martial arts and weapons exhibition, and beautiful lyrical dance. Combined with a modern musical theatre approach, including racingpercussive traditional drum performances and a modern tap dance number, this spectacular show issure to dazzle audiences!

We are having auditions for these fine fine plays THIS WEEKEND!
Here’s how it works:
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the day and time slot that works best for you:
TIME SLOT 1: 12-12:45
TIME SLOT 2: 1-1:45
TIME SLOT 3: 2-2:45
TIME SLOT 4: 3-3:45 same times on both Saturday and Sunday.
*Auditions will be held at MOON NIGHT, in Itaewon.*
You will be provided with sides to read- perhaps alone, with a partner, or with several other actors. No need to come with an audition piece prepared, just be ready for a variety of cold-read scenarios.
After auditions, directors will *discuss casting options (* scrap it out Thunder-Dome-Style) and you will be notified and contacted by your individual director.
Rehearsal times and frequency will vary from group to group, but are generally much less of a commitment than a full-length show. The festival provides an excellent performance opportunity without the extreme time commitments of other projects.
Please plan on staying for the duration of your 45min slot- this will give you opportunity to read for a variety of roles and to test out your chemistry with a variety of scene partners!
