Casting Notice

Rake Theater is now casting Fluency, a meta-theatrical romantic comedy, for our 2008 Orlando Fringe Festival production. Seeking one man (20-35) and one woman (20-35). Both characters are fun, quirky and hip. She is a little bookish and uptight; he is a bit chatty and laid-back.

The festival runs from May 16-26. We will have 4 performances (exact schedule TBD). Rehearsals will start in mid-March; all rehearsals will take place in the Boynton Beach/Boca Raton area.

Transportation (or a small travel stipend) to Orlando from the rehearsal area will be provided if necessary.

The annual Orlando Fringe is an unjuried theatre festival that takes place in Loch Haven Park. In 2007, over 30,000 patrons enjoyed 77 shows, 243 pieces of visual art and 45 kids shows during the 12-day festival. As the oldest non-juried Fringe Festival in the United States (17 years old in 2008), the Orlando Fringe proudly provides a venue for theatrical performing artists to display their creative talent and novel performances. Staying true to the Fringe roots, all acts will remain uncensored, exposing patrons to performances ranging from mild to wild.

Rake Theater was founded in 2006 in New York City. We produced two shows that year, including Oedipus for Kids! at the New York Musical Theater Festival. We’ve relocated to South Florida, and this will be our first production in the Sunshine State.
