2021 One Act Play Season!

After the success of our One Act Festival in 2018 we’ve decided to go BIG!!.....

This year we have 6 exciting plays being presented by 6 new directors* over 2 nights alternating across 2 weeks.

Auditions will be on Saturday January 23rd

THE NORSE MYTHOLOGY RAGNASPLOSION by Don Zolidis
Directed by Blair Purkiss

You may think you know Thor and Loki, but if you take a whirlwind tour through Norse mythology, their adventures are even funnier and weirder than anything you've seen onscreen. Two battling narrators lead a madcap dash from Loki's struggle to find daycare for his giant wolf son, to the woes of the boar who gets eaten at every feast every day, to the warriors chosen to go to Valhalla by the Valkyries in a full Bachelor rose ceremony. It all leads up to an epically silly Ragnarok battle full of rapid-fire character switching you won't soon forget. The wild and wonderful jaunt through Norse mythology is the the the most fun you can have with the apocalypse.

Please Note: Ragnasplosion has a cast of 7 (4m, 3f), each will be playing many roles throughout the course of the play. Each role will have one or two main roles that will be on stage multiple times. Some roles will
require you to play one character for longer, while others will have more, smaller character parts.

Actor 1

Narrator 1 – Here to tell a big story with lots of action, Narrator 1 is brash, energetic and a misogynist. His eagerness and strong opinions often cause clashes with his counterpart; Narrator 2. - Fenrir – Loki’s giant wolf son. Fights with his older brother Jormangundr who often gets the better of him. Fenrir has a sensitive side and can get disheartened by how he’s treated

Male, aged 18 to 25

Applications closed 25 January 2021.

Actor 2

- Loki – Smart, cunning and tricky. Loki is the god of Mischief, he has his own agenda, but he also has responsibilities. He’s not the greatest father either but is willing to try.

Male, aged 18 to 25

Applications closed 25 January 2021.

Actor 3

- Thor – Thor is the God of Thunder and knows it. He is loud and full of himself, believing him to be the most powerful warrior in Asgard. The performance should be different to Marvel’s Thor, as this is mentioned (and seen) on stage. - Balder – Balder is the handsomest warrior in Asgard, but definitely not the smartest. He is constantly sheltered by his over-protective mother but is pretty happy with who he is.

Male, aged 18 to 25

Actor 4

- Odin – King of Asgard and the leader of all the Gods. Odin is an imposing figure demanding respect who often looks down on the Gods underneath him. - Jormangundr – Loki’s giant snake son.
