Uh Theatre Company is hosting auditions for its adaptation of "Thomas Was Alone", the hit Indie 2D platformer game from developer Mike Bithell! Uh Theatre Company is looking to cast multiple principle and ensemble roles for performances on April 3-6, 2014 of a theatrical piece that will combine acting and movement.
Auditions will be held on Tuesday, February 4th, Wednesday, February 5th, and Thursday, February 6th from 7:30 - 10:30pm. Auditions will be held in CLA 0.104 on the UT Austin campus. You may bring a headshot and resume, but it is not required. Please show up by 7:30pm on the night in which you intend to audition. (If that is an issue for you, please contact us! Don't let that stop you from auditioning!) Auditions will consist of cold reads. Please wear something you feel comfortable moving in, as there will be movement involved in your audition as well.
"Thomas Was Alone" was released in June 2012 for the PC and Mac. It was released for the PS3 and the PS Vita in April 2013 and released for Linux in May 2013. The game tells the story of an Artificial Intelligence (AI) named Thomas who, due to a glitch in programming, has suddenly gained sentience and seeks to escape into the outside world. The programmers, determined to make sure this never happens, develop a series of increasingly complex puzzles that always keep him just one step away from freedom. Along the way, Thomas encounters other AIs who all embody various shapes, sizes and colors as quadrilaterals. Through the use of friendship, collaboration, and sometimes rivalry, the AIs work together to find an escape. Having sold over 700,000 copies to date, the game is very popular worldwide.
