Audition Announcement


Tympanic announces auditions for our upcoming night of short plays, Deliver Us From Nowhere. Sun, Feb 26 - 9:30am-1:30pm at The Side Project, 1439 W Jarvis Ave

Tympanic pairs ten playwrights with ten Chicago directors to create a piece of theatre inspired by Bruce Springsteen's legendary album, Nebraska.  Each writer uses a song on the record as the springboard for a short play before an ensemble of musicians composes original music based on the plays themselves.  Deliver Us From Nowhere is a meditation on how art reflects art; a live album in the most unique sense of the word and a celebration of music that is rustic, eerie, and seething with story.

Show runs April 26 - May 20.  Actors should prepare a contemporary monologue.  Additionally, each actor is asked to prepare a verse from any song off of the album, Nebraska.   This can be performed, read as poetry, or sung, and can be as elaborate or as simple as you'd like.   The verse does not have to be memorized.

By appointment only; email to reserve a spot!
