Bessie award-winning choreographer Faye Driscoll needs your help! - DEADLINE EXTENDED

Bessie award-winning choreographer Faye Driscoll needs your help!
Her latest work Thank You For Coming: Play will be at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago November 9-12, 2017.
You can be part of the show!

Play requires a small ensemble of local participants who will be integrated into one section of the show. All participants are required to attend rehearsals with Faye Driscoll’s company, and must be available for the dress rehearsal and all performances. A detailed schedule plan is included below.
This is a great opportunity for someone interested in Faye’s work. No specific performance background is required, but because ensemble members perform a voice-based role, it is essential that participants are comfortable vocalizing and being onstage.

To be considered
Send an email to with the subject “Faye Driscoll Ensemble.” In 1 or 2 paragraphs, explain your interest in participating and briefly share any experience or background you have in dance, performance, theater, or music. Please include your contact information (address and phone number). Optional: send a performance resume and/or 1-2 internet links related to your work. Please send your email and optional materials by 2pm Friday, November 3, 2017. This is an unpaid volunteer position. Participants will receive the following benefits:
 2 tickets to Thank You For Coming: Play
 2 tickets for any other MCA Stage performance January-May 2018
 2 “Friends and Family” passes for a total of four (4) admissions to MCA
 20% discount at MCA Store (single use coupon)

Tue, Nov 7 - 12pm-3pm (Rehearsal with Faye and performers) Wed, Nov 8 - 3pm-6pm (Tech Run-Through) and 7pm-10pm (Dress Rehearsal) Thu, Nov 9 - 3pm-5pm (Notes) and 6:30pm-9:30pm (Performance #1) Fri, Nov 10 - 4pm-5:30pm (Notes) and 6:30pm-9:30pm (Performance #2) Sat, Nov 11 - 4pm-5:30pm (Notes) and 6:30pm-9:30pm (Performance #3) Sun, Nov 12 - 1pm-3:30pm (Performance #4) Schedule will be finalized after participants are confirmed.
