Seph’s life is a balancing act of epic proportions. Half the year is spent with her mother, making plants grow and flowers bloom, while the other half is spent with her father, hunting game and cooking curry. But when Seph meets her first human friend, she discovers that her parents’ devolving relationship has far broader repercussions than she ever could have realized: in fact, it may shape the fate of the entire world. Against these daunting odds, Seph must embrace her own powers and attempt to set things right.

Blending surreal visuals with a decaying, rustic world, this re-imagining of a classic myth embraces the nature of the in-between. Seph is ceaselessly earnest in its excavation and exploration of adolescence, loneliness, and separation – a coming-of-age tale that asks us to examine how we choose between the things (and the people) that we love.

We welcome and encourage students of all backgrounds, identities, and experience levels to audition; no prior experience is required!

Sides will be provided at auditions, or you are welcome to prepare a monologue of no more than one minute in length. Please arrive 10 minutes early for audition time.

For first-time auditionees:
All students are encouraged to audition for all shows that interest them. The directors/creative teams collaborate and actors have the opportunity to give preferences among shows.

Nomadic Theatre’s winter show includes the opportunity to come back early for the spring semester - a fun few days of bonding and rehearsal amongst the cast and crew. This year, we will return on January 3rd to begin rehearsals on January 4th.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact Sam Matta at or (301) 928-6745.
