Atomic Arts' Trek in the Park was one of the highlights of last summer (you can read what I thought of it here). This summer, they'll be back with the classic episode "Space Seed"—and they just announced the roles that wannabe Trek actors can audition for. I've said it before and I'll say it again: CURSE MY INABILITY TO SPEAK WITH A SCOTTISH BROGUE.
Lt. Marla McGivers: Female. The historian on the Enterprise. She is obsessed with the great conquerers and war heroes of the past. It is no surprise she has a particular interest in Khan, perceived as one of the greatest and most mysterious warriors of 20th century Earth. So interested, she betrays her crew and peers to be at Khan’s side for his next conquest. This role will have sides provided at the audition.
Montgomery Scott (Scotty): Male. A man of great ingenuity, technical prowess, and warm hearted friend to have around. The Chief engineer of the Enterprise has the reputation of a “miracle worker”. Scottish accent is a MUST. This role will have sides provided at the audition.
Khan’s followers (3): We will need 1 female and 2 males for these roles. If you have any stunt/stage combat experience or any cool physical special skill that is definitely a plus. Please bring a 1-2 min prepared dramatic monologue to the audition.
Red shirt: Male. We will need someone with some stunt/stage combat experience because, you guessed it, you’re gonna die! Please bring a 1-2 min prepared dramatic monologue to the audition.
Interested in trying out? Of course you are. More info at Atomic Arts!
