PROJECT SYNOPSIS

Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman mix elements of Kabuki theatre with the convention of the Broadway musical in Pacific Overtures, a highly original, inventive, powerful, educational and surprisingly humourous theatrical experience. Commodore Matthew Perry’s 1853 mission to open trade relations with isolationist Japan through gunboat diplomacy forges and unlikely friendship between the samurai Kayama and the Americanized fisherman Manjiro. Kayama and Mangiro – and all of Japanese society – must face the wave of Westernization that follows.

DESCRIPTION

This is an ensemble piece and we are looking for 12-16 asian men to play various roles throughout the production. There are no “lead” roles – and all people cast will have lots to do throughout the show. We are open to seeing anyone with a passion or interest in performing. Your attitude is more important than your experience. We hope to hear from you!
