Auditions for Moa a Mo`i, Chicken Into King by Jean Charlot
Open auditions will be held to cast the upcoming production of Moa a Mo`i, Chicken Into King by Jean Charlot at Kumu Kahua Theatre, with permission from © The Jean Charlot Estate LLC. The show will be directed by Daniel A. Kelin II, Director of Drama Education at Honolulu Theatre for Youth.
Born in France, Jean Charlot (1898-1979) emigrated to Mexico where he became a renowned muralist. In 1949 he moved to Hawaii as a teacher and artist in residence at UH Manoa.
Drawing upon his environment and local culture for inspiration, he continued to create hundreds of artworks, as well as Two Hawaiian Plays (1976). This one, Moa a Mōʻī (Chicken Into King), recreates several stories about ʻUmi, the peasant prince who was born a commoner and became a wise and famous ruler.
Rehearsals may begin as early as Monday, November 11; the show runs January 23 February 23, 2014, with possible extension dates running through March 2, 2014.
Director Daniel A. Kelin is looking for 12-13 actors
