Audition Notice:

MEN ON BOATS by Jaclyn Backhaus
Directed by: Joshua Weidenhamer

THE PLAY: Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. MEN ON BOATS is the true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition, when a one-armed captain and crew of insane yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River. It is based largely on John Wesley Powell’s Journal of his 1869 expedition.

The director is seeking a racially diverse set of actors who are female identifying, trans-identifying, genderfluid, and/or non-gender conforming.

CAST OF CHARACTERS:
John Wesley POWELL- one-armed leader of the expedition
William DUNN- hunter and trapper
John Colton SUMNER- former soldier, current explorer
OLD SHADY- Powell’s older brother, Civil War vet
BRADLEY- lieutenant, manic with youth
O.G. Howland- printer and hunter
