About the play:

Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. Men on Boats is the true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition, when a one-armed captain and a crew of insane yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River.

Character Breakdown:

POWELL - one armed leader of the expedition
DUNN - hunter and trapper
SUMNER - former soldier, current explorer
OLD SHADY - Powell’s older brother, Civil War vet
BRADLEY - lieutenant, manic with youth
O.G. - printer and hunter
SENECA - O.G.’s little brother
GOODMAN - British, so excited
HALL - mapmaker, old soul

TSAUWIAT - the Ute Chief (doubles with OG)
THE BISHOP - Tsauwiat’s wife (doubles with Seneca)
MR. ASA – a desert soldier (doubles with Goodman) 

***PLEASE NOTE: The characters in MEN ON BOATS were historically cisgender while males. The cast should be made up of entirely people who are not. I’m talking about racially diverse actors who are female-identifying, trans-identifying, gender-fluid, and/or non-gender-conforming.***

 

PLEASE BRING A ONE MINUTE COMEDIC MONOLGUE ALONG WITH HEADSHOT AND RESUME. PLEASE BE PREPARED TO BE INTERVIEWED AT THE TIME OF YOUR AUDITION AS WELL.
