Zach & Zack are thrilled to announce auditions for Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show (two-time winner of NUVO’s Best of Indy for Best Locally Produced Play), returning to the Athenaeum Theatre this October. Rocky Horror is produced by Zach Rosing and directed by Zack Neiditch.
All roles are being auditioned this year, with the exception of the Narrator. There are no restrictions on age, race, or size; the only requirement is that you be able to sing your ass off. We’re looking for big personalities, interesting looks and huge talent! Strong dancers are encouraged to audition for the ensemble, which is extremely hardworking and very active throughout the show. All roles will be paid.
Auditioners should be:
- strong singer
- comfortable in revealing clothing/underwear
- comfortable in sexual situations
- comfortable(ish) in high heels
Auditions will take place by appointment Sunday May 13th or Monday May 14th beginning at 7pm each night at the Circle City Industrial Complex. Visit http://bit.ly/rocky2018 to sign up for auditions. We will email you your specific time slot a few days before auditions. Brief dance auditions will take place throughout the evening.
Please prepare a song (no more than two minutes) appropriate for the style of Rocky Horror (but nothing from the show, please), and bring sheet music in the correct key. No a cappella or CD auditions. An accompanist will be provided. Bring appropriate dress for the dance audition.
Callbacks will take place Wednesday May 16th.

Saturday October 27th 7:30pm & 10:30pm
