Dog casting - Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill
August 19, 2022
Theatre Calgary is looking for a canine castmate to join our production of Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill!
About the show:
It’s March 1959, and in an intimate, seedy Philadelphia bar, Billie Holiday takes the stage for one of her final performances. Treat yourself to one powerhouse night of jazz, including her most memorable songs like “What a Little Moonlight Can Do”, “Strange Fruit“, and “God Bless the Child“. Told alongside the honest, riveting, and heartbreaking story of the singer’s life, Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill will mesmerize you in a musical evening you won’t soon forget.
Pepi, Billie Holiday’s dog. Pepi is a small dog, led onstage by Billie on a leash. Pepi stays with her while she sings a song. She may pick up Pepi and be close and affectionate with them. She will pass Pepi over to Jimmy, the piano player and Pepi will likely be led offstage by Jimmy. Pepi should be a relaxed dog – there will be live music played during his performance, as well as audience response from a darkened theatre. No tricks required, just a calm demeanor. Please note we are looking for a small breed – no bigger than Toto from The Wizard of Oz. The dog cast can be either male or female.
Pepi’s handler should be available for some rehearsals between August 30 – September 11 (2022), and ALL performances from September 13 – October 2. Performances are Tuesday to Sunday with some evenings and matinees. Pepi’s handler will be required to arrive at an agreed upon call time and stay until the dog’s performance is complete – to be discussed with the director and management.
Rehearsals: August 30 – September 16, 2022
Tech rehearsals: September 7 – 9, 2022
Dress Rehearsals: September 10 & 11, 2022
Run: September 13, 2022 – October 2, 2022
Theatre Calgary will offer a weekly fee for services.
If you and your dog are interested, please email Alex Currie, Director of Artistic Operations, as soon as possible.
