Pasadena Babalon:
The World of Jack Parsons
Wednesday, 2 December 2009 7pm – 11pm Ramo Auditorium
Saturday, 5 December 2009 from 10am – 2pm Ramo Auditorium

Auditions for world premiere of Pasadena Babalon (BOOM!)
consist of improvisatory workshops based on characters from
play.

Prepare for workshop/auditions by choosing one or more of the
characters from the following dramatis personae. Prepare to
dramatize one or more of the characters from The World of Jack
Parsons (WJP) in improvised scenarios based on George
Morgan’s script. Many of these characters based on “real-life”
people during the time period 1920s until Parson’s death in
1952. The goal is to create stage characters with specific
histories and explore the “lived relation to the real” in the World
of JP. Some of the characters might be fictional, attempt to
create an indelible stage image of him or her to present back in
improvised scenes with others.

If you are interested in smaller parts, extra players needed for:
chanting OTO devotees; late 40s early 50s Aerojet employees;
military personnel; science fiction groups; madcap Parsonage
house residents; 1940s CIT and JPL. Smaller singing and
dancing roles. Wear clothes you can move in. No high heels.
No one will be refused a role in play or tech team!
Rehearsals Begin January 5, 2010 Runs February 19-27 2010.

Presented By: Caltech Performing and Visual Arts

Pasadena Babalon is a new stage play dealing with the life of rocket pioneer Jack Parsons, co-founder of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and the Aerojet General Corporation.

Theater Arts at Caltech (TACIT) director Brian Brophy (Shawshank Redemption, Day Without a Mexican, Star Trek: The Next Generation) will direct the play penned by George Morgan, author of last year's well-received Rocket Girl.

Babalon takes the audience on a journey through mid-1930s Pasadena up until Jack's untimely death in 1952. Surrounded by a gallery of characters from Aleister Crowley, L.Ron Hubbard, Theordore Von Karman, and many others, the play examines the nature of genius with its unintended consequences, black magic, military contracts, and the formation of JPL.

TACIT casts feature Caltech undergraduates, graduate students, staff members, and JPL engineers.

The play will also be presented on Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon, and the following weekend on Friday and Saturday.

Discounted pricing for youth, students, and groups of 10 or more are available.
