Synopsis: 
Crisis on Planet Z! is an environmental, science-fiction play for young audiences. Zephyr and their alien species the Alphabetians are celebrating 100 years of being on Planet Z when Zephyr makes a new friend and a horrifying discovery: a fuzzy Ziffle shows them how Alphabetians haven’t been ‘improving’ the planet, they have been slowly destroying it! Together, the Ziffle and Zephyr try to warn the Alphabetians, but it’s too late! The rockets are packed, and the aliens are ready to blast off to the next planet. Little do they know, there is no next planet: Planet Z is the very last planet in their solar system! Together, the Alphabetians must account for their actions, learn how to pronounce symbiosis, and find a way to save Planet Z.

PRODUCTION DATES: The production will premiere at the Vancouver International Children’s Festival from May 31 - June 5 2022. Rehearsals will take place in May in so-called Vancouver. (There is a tentative plan to tour the show in Feb/Mar 2023, no commitment required at this time.)

ABOUT MONSTER THEATRE: Monster Theatre creates original plays that challenge preconceptions, excite imaginations and embody the way of the Monster: strange, twisted and bizarre on the outside, but always with a noble heart. Our process puts story first by adapting universal stories to make them relevant for our specific time and place in the world, or re-imagining history with impeccable research and utter irreverence. Our unique brand of theatre applies the philosophy and techniques of improvisation during both the creation process and in performance, the results are fast-paced, physical, loose, cerebral and often, but not always, comedic.

Synopsis: 
Vivian, a young Asian-Canadian mother of two, inherits a rusty family wok from her elderly grandmother. Although not an avid cook, she recognizes the cultural and historical significance of this heirloom and endeavors to restore it. This proves to be a difficult and tedious task: one that takes time, patience, effort, and resilience. In the process of restoring the wok, she ponders her life experiences, her cultural identity, and the future of her family.
Submission Instructions: 

Please email your headshot and resume to rheanna@rheannatoy.com, SUBJECT LINE: "[Your Full Name], Vivian". You will then be forwarded sides. Please send a pre-recorded audition tape link uploaded privately to Youtube or Vimeo, by 12:00AM November 5. The sides do not need to be memorized as most of the dialogue in the film is in voiceover. Shortlisted candidates will be called for an in-person reading at a later date.

Character 1 Name: 
Vivian
Character 1 Age: 
30-40
Character 1 Description: 
(LEAD, Asian or partially Asian decent) Vivian is a first-generation Canadian, and the mother of two. Through the restoration of a rusty family wok, she contemplates the importance of preserving one’s culture and passing on that knowledge to future generations. This role requires voice-over narration, and previous experience is beneficial but not required. On days of filming, the role is largely physical with scarce amounts of dialogue, but with room for improvisation with other cast, including younger child actors. On-set, the part will involve Vivian restoring a rusty wok through various methods, and eventually preparing a meal for the family. Experience cooking, particularly with a wok, is a big asset.

A nobleman loyal to King Lear whose rank, earl, is below that of duke. The first thing we learn about Gloucester is that he is an adulterer, having fathered a bastard son, Edmund. His fate is in many ways parallel to that of Lear: he misjudges which of his children to trust. He appears weak and ineffectual in the early acts, when he is unable to prevent Lear from being turned out of his own house, but he later demonstrates that he is also capable of great bravery.
