Jul. 24 - Jul. 25 (2017)
Apocalypse is a site-specific and immersive theatrical piece revolving around the remaining members of a coven of witches and their relationship with the devil, the end of the world, and with each other. The play deals with themes of myth, storytelling, and stasis. It is somewhat loosely connected to two previous plays in our season, Wraith Radio and The Curious.
Bottle Alley Theatre Company shall be holding auditions for a cast of four women for our world premiere production of Apocalypse. This show is the season finale of our fourth season, which has revolved around a Haunted theme.
Performance dates shall takes place over three nights only in either late October or early November. These performances shall be semi-secret, and by invitation only. We operate on a laid-back rehearsal schedule consisting of Monday through Wednesday evenings (with some level of flexibility)
Bottle Alley Theatre Company is a DIY punk theatre company specializing in found space theatre. We have been staging strictly original work in all manner of odd places since 2012. Our work aspires to be raw, visceral, immersive, thought-provoking and, above all, honest.
Here are some links from our three previous show in this season to get an idea of our aesthetic:

We firmly believe that all artists should be paid to do the thing that they love and therefore our performers are paid, and will always be paid, a small stipend upon the conclusion of the run. It usually not winds up being very much, but the ticket sales are divided equally amongst the performers.
