‘Paper Hat’ Auditions

Calling all actors, dancers and performers! Five performers are needed for an Other Voices production at Manbites Dog Theater this fall.

The Paper Hat Game is a Toy Theater play that tells the story of the notorious Chicago prankster, the Paper Hat Guy, through the language of puppetry and projection. With dreamlike video, a gritty soundscape and live puppetry, the performance offers a voyage into the psychological and physical workings of a large city.

Watch a video of the full performance here.
Read more about the play here.

Tech will be Oct 12-18, and performances run Wednesday through Sunday from Oct 18-Nov 3. The rehearsal schedule prior to Oct 12 will be determined through performer availability.
Performers will be paid a $500 stipend.

Audition times are available on Wednesday, August 8 from 1-5pm and Thursday, August 9 from 7-10pm at Manbites Dog Theater. If you are unable to audition during either of those times, please call to schedule a private audition.

All actors, dancers and performers are welcome and encouraged to audition. No specific puppetry experience is required. Anyone who can tell a story through movement should attend.
