I’m very pleased to announce the cast for The GeekERIE’s performance of Lovecraft Live: Pickman’s Model.
Lovecraft – Adam Holquist
Thurber – Dylan Lane
Wilmarth – Sean McGrath
Pickman – Finu Lukose
Mercy – Cynthia Aikey
Eliot – Eric Linster
Dyer – Diana Schultz
Pabodie – Adam Holquist
Armitage – JR Snyder
Helen – ???
Delany – JR Snyder
Wilbur – Diana Schultz
Fangirl – Diana Schultz
Peasey – Diana Schultz
I still need an African-American woman for Helen. If you know someone who would like to be a part of this and matches this description, please send her my way.
Rehearsals start next week, and I am thrilled to be working with this cast to bring this piece to life. I guarantee, Erie hasn’t seen anything like this in recent memory.
As part of our Library Comic Con
event, The GeekERIE will be doing a staged reading of our adaptation of H P Lovecraft’s “Pickman’s Model”. Which means we need actors and actresses! Which means AUDITIONS
WHEN: January 28 and 29 at 6 PM
WHERE: Blasco Library, second floor meeting room
WHAT: Audition materials will be provided
WHO: 10 men and 3 women (at least one African-American woman because I don’t want to whitewash the role)
You can read HPL’s original “Pickman’s Model” to familiarize yourself with the characters with the understanding that this is an adaptation, so there’s extra-textual material. If you’re really into research, read “The Call of Cthulhu“, “The Dunwich Horror” and “At the Mountains of Madness” to get a sense of Lovecraft’s world.
The date of the performance is Sunday, May 17. This will be the only performance, so we’re looking at no more than 6 rehearsals.
Please email me (Sean McGrath) at YourHost@TheGeekERIE.org to reserve a time. If you are not available during the posted audition times, email me anyway and we’ll work something out.
