Auditions

Kokandy Productions is seeking performer submissions for the Midwest premiere of Hundred Days by The Bengsons, directed by Lucky Stiff.

Hundred Days is an uncensored, exhilarating and heartrending true story about embracing uncertainty, taking a leap, and loving as if you only had 100 days to live. With magnetic chemistry and anthemic folk-punk music, creators Abigail and Shaun Bengson explore a fundamental question: how do we make the most of the time that we have?

Described as a folk-punk docu-musical, Hundred Days utilizes 6-7 performer/musicians who sing and play a range of instruments–including accordion, bass, drums, guitar, keyboard, and cello. 

Characters and Vocal Ranges
Abigail: E3 to E5
Barrie: D3 to B5
Shaun: Ab2 to C4
El Beh: G3 to B5
Ashley: G3 to B5
Reggie: A2 to C4

Note: the Abigail track is primarily focused on vocals, with some percussion.
