Performer Auditions v.2 – Unscripted, Improvised, and Hands-on

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:

Performer Auditions v.1

Just as The Republic will thrust players into an unexpected new experience, auditions for The Republic put potential performers into a surprising adventure to test their abilities.

Across a recent weekend in downtown Orlando, we welcomed many talented performers to get a taste of what The Republic stands for. The video below shows a sampling of what our performers went through to begin the process. It does not reflect any sort of events that will be part of the actual experience of The Republic, but does give a sense of how the unexpected will always occur.

Our hopeful performers were told where and when to show up, but nothing else. Most responded beautifully:

More audition excitement to come…
