La Mezcla is seeking understudies for the theater performance Pachuquismo to be performed in San Francisco and Southern California in October 2019 with additional tour dates to follow. Pachuquismo is an all-female production that tells the Pachuca perspective of the Zoot Suit Riots of 1943 through Tap Dance, Zapateado, Son Jarocho and live Jazz Music. While understudies may not perform in this run of the show, there are opportunities for performances and future touring dates in 2020-2021.
Understudies needed include Tap dancers, Mexican Zapateado dancers with experience in Son Jarocho, Son Jarocho musicians with strong vocal abilities and Jazz musicians & vocalists. Rehearsals begin August 2019. Understudies will be paid a stipend and will not need to attend all rehearsals.
Please send a description of your dance or music training, performance experience and a performance video to LaMezclaSF@gmail.com.
