Synopsis:

Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play: America has fallen, the power grids are gone, humanity is on the edge of extinction and the world is ending… now what? In the not-too-distant future, a group of survivors huddle around a campfire trying to retell an episode of The Simpsons from memory. As the years pass, this episode and other snippets of pop culture become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society, sincerely trying to hold onto its past.

  • Actors will each play several characters throughout the show.

    Hi, there; I heard about the auditions for “Mr. Burns” coming soon. I’m thinking about submitting an audition request, but before I do, I’m curious about how the rehearsal schedule will go (i.e. what days of the week and times of days rehearsals will be taking place). Thanks very much.

      Hey Clive! At this time, the rehearsal schedule is up in the air as we’ll be waiting until cast is assembled before making any concrete decisions. The best advice we can give is to submit your application and see what happens! Thanks for your interest in our production. 🙂
