Announcing auditions for Theatre Pro Rata’s production The Minotaur, by Anna Ziegler, directed by Amber Bjork.

About The Minotaur:

Everyone deserves a story.
Once again, Ariadne waits for Theseus to show up and kill her monstrous brother. In every telling, he heroically slays the Minotaur. But does it always have to happen that way? The Minotaur certainly hopes not. Fighting the outcome of your own myth is no easy feat but it might just be possible for a true hero.

Performance Dates:

October 7- 22, 2017
Performing at The Crane Theater

Rehearsal Dates:

August 14 – October 6, 2017.
Nights and weekends, 5 days a week.


2F, 3M, 1 M or F

The Minotaur: M, 20s/30s. Intelligent, lonely, and powerful. His conflict is based on his both reviling and reveling in his own beastly nature. Ariadne’s brother.
Ariadne: F, 20s/30s. Intelligent, introspective, saucy, wise in the ways of human nature but innocent in the ways of love. She thinks deeply about every decision she makes and why she is making it. Sister of the Minotaur.
Theseus: M 20s/30s. A bro at first glance whose dimensions multiply as change to his traditional adventure-hero story looms. Ariadne’s love interest.
Priest: M, any age. A man of great intelligence, a beacon of faith, an observant part of the chorus trio.
Rabbi: F, any age. A fearless and warm woman, a mother, an observant part of the chorus trio.
Lawyer: M or F, any age. A cynic of discipline and rules, an observant part of the chorus trio.
