The Strasburg Rail Road, America’s oldest short line rail road, is excited to announce auditions for its first live event spectacular, The Great Diamond Heist. The Great Diamond Heist is a stunt spectacular playing Fridays through Sundays, at the Strasburg Rail Road August 20th through October 3rd. Strasburg Rail Road is seeking stunt performers, as well as performers willing to learn stunt work, to perform this live spectacular on the train, and in the station. No previous stunt experience is required, simply must be able to move well, and have a willingness to safely learn stunt work. Not all roles require stunt work. All actors must be comfortable with improv, as there is a large portion of each performance dependent on interactions with guests, in character, on the train. Please see breakdown below. Must have local housing, or be willing to commute. Rehearsals will take place Aug 2nd-20th. Contract pay is $500 per week. BOTH Equity and Non-Equity are invited to audition. Please prepare a 30 second monologue of your choice. All races and ethnicities are encouraged to audition. Looking to cast a racially diverse company.
Mayor Wilson Book – Male Identifying, 30+ Character Actor. The Mayor of Strasburg, bit of a blowhard who gladhands, and smiles, but possesses no real power. Loves that he is the mayor of this town, at this time, and loves to give speeches. Kind of a “scaredy-cat” when captured by the villains. No stunt work necessary.
Leland Sinclair – Male Identifying, 30+ Character Actor. The President of the Rail Road, a no nonsense businessman who takes great pride in establishing this new rail road passage to the west. Matter of fact in all business dealings, with a gruff exterior. Not a “scaredy-cat”, but not a hero either. Just a stalwart business man. No stunt work necessary
Gemma Stone – Female Identifying, 18+. Henchwoman to The Diamond. Beautiful, but dangerous, she knows how to handle dynamite, or a gun, and is not afraid to use either. Is also not afraid to use her feminine wiles to get what she wants. Stunt Work
Ruby Rich – Female Identifying, 18+. Second Henchwoman to The Diamond. Beautiful, but dangerous, she too knows how to handle herself in any situation. A little ditzy, but don’t let that fool you, she is very dangerous. Stunt Work
Philip Samuel Gerard – Male Identifying, 25+, A US Marshall assigned to work the job of transporting the Diamond to prison in Chicago. World weary Marshall who has been on the job for quite a while, and seen it all, he does not fool around, and takes his job very seriously. Stunt Work
Seamus Malone – Male Identifying, 18+, Second US Marshall assigned to work the job of transporting the Diamond to prison in Chicago. Young, tough, headstrong, and not afraid to tackle any problem that comes at him, he sometimes shoots first, and asks questions later. Stunt Work
The Villain – Female Identifying, 18+. Our villain is the most notorious thief of her time. She is Catwoman for the ragtime era. She is cocky, with the skills, and more importantly, the brains, to back it up. Cold, calculating, with a sharp wit, she is prepared for almost anything…except The Hawk.
The Hawk – Male Identifying, 21+. Our hero. The Hawk is a precursor to Batman/The Shadow/The Green Hornet. He is everything a superhero should be. Handsome, strong, smart, quick with a quip as well as a weapon. He circles his prey before striking, and you always hear him before you see him. His laugh strikes fear into the hearts of criminals worldwide. Stunt Work
