Theatre Now New York is seeking non-Equity musical theatre and opera performers for a staged reading of a new musical adaptation of George Orwell's "Animal Farm". This will be a socially distanced, livestreamed event. Some rehearsals may occur online, but the performance will be filmed in person at a venue in NYC TBD without an audience. Strict safety and health measures will be in place. All performers will need to be fully vaccinated. $100 stipend.

Animal Farm is a musical adaptation of the George Orwell novella, an allegory of the 1917 Russian Revolution. It follows the story of a farm in England where the animals seize control from their owner and the subsequent struggle within their ranks for leadership and control. A workshop was presented in Spring of 2020 at the BMI Lehman Engel Workshop. The show is largely sung through with a score verging on operatic. Seeking mostly legit singers with strong sight reading skills or the ability to learn material quickly. Ability to do a British accent a plus.
