BAT is seeking a male-presenting actor for the production of “Fallen Angels”
with Burien Actors Theatre

Burien Actors Theatre (BAT) is seeking a male-presenting actor age 30s-50s of any race, ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression, and physical/mental ability to play the male-presenting role of either Fred or Willy in a multi-racial production of the comedy Fallen Angels, written by Noel Coward and adapted by Rachel Rene for performance outdoors in the parks. This production moves the play from 1920s London to 1972 in the Pacific Northwest. Actor does not have to be in the age-range indicated, but must be convincing as someone in that age range.

 

ABOUT THE SHOW

This will be a 90-minute one-act version of the play to be performed outdoors in the parks. There will be 4 to 7 performances between July 12 and August 18, 2024. All performances will be in south King County parks and will be weekend matinees or evenings. The parks range from concrete to grass, so the ability to maneuver over uneven ground will be important. 

Fallen Angels is a delightful romp through the lives of two best friends who find themselves in a bit of a pickle. Julia and Jane are two happily but complacently married women. When the charismatic Frenchman Maurice, whom they had separate flings with before marriage, suddenly announces a visit, they panic. As they try to keep their passionate past a secret from their husbands, Fred and Willy, chaos and hilarity ensue. With Coward’s signature wit and charm, Fallen Angels is a wild ride of champagne-fueled antics, love and laughter.

Fred is Julia’s husband and Willy is Jane’s husband.
