Performers of all ethnic and racial background are encouraged to attend. Clocktower Players is committed to an inclusive casting policy of non-traditional casting and encourages all actors to audition regardless of age, gender, race, or ethnicity.

Note from JOSUE JASMIN, choreographer: “For our actors, singers and dancers, we are really interested to see what physical capacities they bring to the table in terms of strength, flexibility and dexterity. We would want to integrate these creative and unique skills into the musical numbers. Skills with contortion, hand-balancing, hand to hand, pairs and duo-mixed would be of added value.”

LEADING PLAYER- (Can be male or female)- Dangerous, charismatic, extremely charming and seductive, the Leading Player is the leader of the troupe and the mastermind behind Pippin's journey.

PIPPIN
TIME

PLACE: The Holy Roman Empire and thereabouts
SUMMARY: Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the un-extraordinary moments that happen every day. Pippin's message is universal and will connect with audiences across the age spectrum.
