This week, we held our second round of performer auditions for The Republic as we begin to narrow down our core cast.

Since The Republic is an entirely unique experience, we have ensured our auditions have been entirely unique as well. Armed with only brief character descriptions, our potential performers were asked to improvise and act out a few roles, making up the scenes and dialogue as they went. They rotated rooms, linked up with others thrown into the same fire, and ultimately created on-the-fly experiences based on who they believed their characters were.

The results were spectacular. This talented group will no doubt put on an incredible show when The Republic debuts in Orlando in May 2015.

Take a look at the emotion and creativity that flowed through our performers in the video below:
