FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUDITIONS FOR TREY PARKER’S “CANNIBAL THE MUSICAL” AT THE LIBERTY THEATRE
South Park creator Trey Parker’s Cannibal! The Musical! is the kind of true story of the only person convicted of cannibalism in America – Alfred Packer. The sole survivor of an ill-fated trip to the Colorado Territory, he tells his side of the harrowing tale to news reporter Polly Pry as he awaits his execution. And his story goes like this: While searching for gold and love in the Colorado Territory, he and his companions lost their way and resorted to unthinkable horrors, including toe-tapping songs!
FIlled with Parker’s trademark dark comic edge and buffoonery, Cannibal! is for mature audiences only. Auditions are February 25th at 6:30 PM at The Liberty Theatre at 2100 Sherman Avenue, North Bend, Oregon. Please prepare part of a song and be prepared to move.
Seeking ninjas, cyclops, maidens, dancers, trappers, erstwhile heroes, shopkeepers, judges, penguins, and someone to play Cartman (really). Most roles sing and/or dance, talent in these particular areas not necessarily required. Broad sense of humor definitely required.
