Writers’ Workshop!

Tuesday, April 30th, 2019

May 18, 2019 1-3 pm

Kate’s House of Occasional Cheesecake in Forest Park, IL

KHOC is a private residence near the Harlem Blue Line ‘L’ Stop in Forest Park, IL. If you plan to attend the Writers’ Workshop, please contact Kate (in advance) at [kate at moebiustheatre dot net] and she will provide the address.

As you might expect, a Moebius writers’ workshop is a rigorous and tightly-structured affair that requires you to reserve a slot for your finished manuscript in advance… ARE YOU BUYING THIS??? Whazzamatta with you? (slap!) Just show up. Bring a script if you have one. Bring a partial script. Bring a nebulous premise.* Even if you got nothing, show up and we’ll bat around some ideas and read whatever we get. We’ll also talk about scheduling ongoing workshops going forward as we go.

If you have a script you’d like to have read, bring one hard copy per character.  Given the short timeframe and the irons we currently have in the fire, it would make sense to focus on short works (comedy sketches, quick audio pieces…) but really bring whatever you’ve got. This workshop will end promptly at 3:00 for footnoted reasons.**

Hey out-of-town company members: (and in-towners too): If you cannot attend the workshop but want feedback on a script, send it to Lisa and she’ll feed it to the raving jackals* for their helpful comments.

*Nebulous Premise is a good band name. Better than Raving Jackals which is pedestrian; We bet some band is already using it… and playing wedding dances. Jackal of Hearts would be a good name for a wedding band.

**Comedians on Wheels! – After the Workshop on May 18, some of us plan to head to Moebius Member Erin’s Roller Skating fundraiser (to benefit the American Cancer Society) at the Lombard Roller Rink, at 4-6 pm. See here for more information.

Auditions for A Christmas Carol

Actors and musicians needed for one-off “radio theatre” charity event (Oak Park)

For the third year, Moebius Theatre will perform its “steampowered” live audio theatre adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic story, A Christmas Carol, to raise donations for local food pantries. The performance will take place Friday evening, December 7, at the beautiful Nineteenth Century Club in Oak Park. This event has grown in popularity each year, and we are expanding the show and moving to a larger venue to accommodate the response.Seeking actors of all ages (there are even several roles available for children), as well as musicians and production staff. These are NOT paid positions – proceeds will be donated to the food bank. The performance is similar to “old-time radio” – with music and sound effects created live. Most of the roles use scripts onstage and will not need to be memorized. However, good reading and vocal interpretation skills are essential for actors (actors may play multiple roles), and ability with one or more British dialects is preferred. The form of the auditions is cold reads.If you wish to be considered as a musician, please contact director Kate Graham at

If you are interested but cannot attend the scheduled audition, it may be possible to make other arrangements, but you MUST contact the director at prior to the audition time.

Audition, rehearsal, and performance locations are all convenient to Green and Blue Line El stations.

It will help us better plan the auditions if you could please contact the director at to let us know you will be attending. If you are interested but cannot attend the scheduled audition, it may be possible to make other arrangements, if you contact the director PRIOR to the scheduled auditions.

Again, these are not paid positions. We’re just trying to have a little fun and do some good in the world. 🙂
