The Imaginary Life of Millo St. Jean - Open Call Auditions

Snapdragon Theatre Works


Snapdragon Theatre Works is casting The Imaginary Life of Millo St. Jean by UCSD Playwriting MFA candidate Jeff Augustin. Millo has not left his house in Haiti in eleven years, because of a dream he had about a dying tree, a pile of mutilated bodies, and a man with no face. He spends most of his days playing with his imaginary friend, The Man on the Moon. When mountains start crumbling, a group of Haitians start killing white people. Adam, a white friend of Millo's deceased Mom, Carmel, needs Millo’s help to leave the country via a secret boat his Mom used to travel the world. Reality is blurred in this surreal adventure about creating a new life in the midst of disaster. The piece is directed by Allison Bressi and stage managed by Julia Borowski.

Rehearsal will begin on June 27; performances will take place from July 27 to July 31.

Non-Equity / No pay.
