Are you a male actor between 20 and 35 years? And you have the ability to sing? This is FOR YOU!

The Baxter Theatre Centre, Zabalaza Theatre Festival and Magnet Theatre are looking for male actors between the ages of 20 and 35 years, with the ability to sing, for an upcoming production of Passage, scheduled for staging at the Baxter’s Golden Arrow Studio.

Auditions will be held in the Baxter’s new rehearsal room at 10:00 on 8 and 9 November 2013. Actors should prepare a 4-to-5 minute monologue on “What makes a man?”

What does it mean to be a good man in South Africa today? How do we grow from boys into responsible, caring men? How do men engage with power without  resorting to violence?

These are the questions that will be explored in Passage, an exciting new collaboration between the Baxter Theatre Centre/Zabalaza and Magnet Theatre.

Directed by Thando Doni (graduate of the Magnet Training Programme, Zabalaza Theatre Festival Best Director winner and recipient of the GIPCA emerging director’s bursary), one of the most inspired, energized and creative directors in South Africa at the moment…

And performed by 5 new talents on the Cape Town stage, Passage goes to the heart of the crisis of violence against women in South Africa. Passage not only explores the values, assumptions, fears and behaviours that allow such violence to be perpetrated but investigates, in our multicultural context, how boys transition into men. 

Looking at the rites of passage that boys undergo in South Africa to move from childhood to responsible adulthood, the production points to actions that men can take to redefine and reconstruct a positive notion of male masculinity.

Research weekend: 18 & 19 January 2014
Rehearsals: 20 Jan to 23 February 2014
Township tour: 24 February to 2 March 2014
Performance: 4 to 23 March at 11:00 & 18:00

We look forward to seeing you at auditions!
